Quote1 There has to be a better way. Quote2

--John Cumberland (Wildstorm Universe)

Quote1 I once thought fighting crime was the answer, but it just perpetuates the problem. Another guy comes along to be hit, and you don't see the bigger problems behind him. Quote2

--John Cumberland (Wildstorm Universe)

Quote1 We are superhumans, just as your modern crimefighters and covert actions teams are. However, we feel a different responsibility than they do. Their job, as they see it, is to fight the menaces come to them; the supervillains, the weird things in the dark. Their job is to return everything to status quo. They spend so much time fighting esoteric crime that they have little choice. They just don't have the time left to address ordinary menaces; the poison of unearned authority, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse that ride daily. They try to save the world, but they make no effort to change it. And if this world does not change soon, then it will most certainly die, no matter how many people they beat up. Quote2
