--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Why do you keep acting as if he were some kind of homicidal maniac? He wanted to help people. But he went too far, and he knew it-- and he couldn't stand it. He wasn't a bad man.

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 I know you were dealt a rough hand, but all you had to do was talk to us; you were a fine Leaguer, Will. You'd have been welcome anytime. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 War? Then you're up against the wrong army. Send a message back to your masters if you can. Tell them that if we have to stand guard around the clock against you and your ilk...the JLA will not cede Gotham. You think you're everywhere? Well...we are too. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 I doubt it. He just outgruffed Aquaman. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Stand firm. Right now, courage is all that can light the darkness! The Justice League of America won't let you down! Quote2

Quote1 The Justice League is an organic thing. It exists to cope with the ever-changing face of terror besieging the Earth... And in that way, it too, must sometimes evolve. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 I may have been conceived out there in the endless depths of space... but I was born when the Rocket opened, on Earth, in America. I'll cherish always the memories Jor-El and Lara gave me... but only as curious mementos of a life that might have been. Krypton bred me, but it was Earth that gave me all I am. All that matters. It was Krypton that made me Superman... but it is the Earth that makes me Human! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Wrong is wrong and , when I grow up, I'm gonna make things right! Quote2

Quote1 Diabolical! Luthor knows I won't harm an old woman! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 People need to respect us-- and trust us. We're too powerful for them not to. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 I've got a little speech that I give to newly-arrived vigilantes. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not omniscient. I'm a busy guy, and I can't always give the street's the attention it needs. So, I can use the help. But I require in all instances that laws are obeyed and civil rights are observed. Anything less, and you'll be on the next train out. It's that simple. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 ' Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Only two miles from the Daily Planet and it might as well be another planet! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 *Ahem* How should we start? 'I hear you're feeling like a doofus ...' or 'Just say no to panty raids'? Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 When you're in a position of power -- sometimes it's not easy to remember what all this is for. People, problems, and ideas can get lost in the confusion of our world. Stay focused. Don't let a few bad apples spoil our American pie. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

--Kal-El (New Earth)

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 No, the last thing we need is "Commander Kal-El" on Earth. This is a job for Superman. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Long ago, I thought that mankind could take care of itself -- That it would resent Superman if he took too much control! But the pettiness and greed of man has proven that approach was dead wrong! Earth needs a babysitter, Lana! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 To my friends and colleagues, I'm just a farm boy in the big city, trying to make his mark. To the rest of Metropolis, I've become a protector. A symbol of hope. Me? I just hope I don't screw up. It's been about two months now since I've started what Ma calls my "good work." Most of the time I get to help people in need. A week ago I was able to save a few hundred passengers in a crashing jet. They all think I'm indestructible. I wish that I were so sure. I've withstood bursting shells, thousands of volts of electricity, raging fires and countless other vicious acts of man and nature. I appear to be invulnerable. But am I? Or is it just a matter of time before I find the thing that can kill me? They think I'm fearless. But each new cataclysm gives me one sharp instant of mortal fear. Will this kill me? Am I dying right now? Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 This world and its people are under my protection. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 What would you do? You have a date with a woman you're madly in love with. But if you go on that date, a village full of innocent people will die a horrible death. Could you live with making that choice? Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 It's like I can't win. Like I'm two people, and neither one can be himself. I either have to be the indestructible hero or the shy co-worker. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 ' Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 It's just like riding a bicycle... That's strapped to a military transport about to crash! But not while I'm here! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 ...And the Prankster's still in town, and they've apparently hired him to distract me, to cover some of their activities. And I'm on a deadline. And I missed lunch. Mondays. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 One lucky punch doesn't mark the end of this. Round one is yours, maybe. This is round two! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Atlas! Hands off my dog! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 When I see villainy and horror unfolding here, Earth, anywhere... I've long stopped being surprised to find you or your hand at the heart of it, Luthor. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 There's too much here in Metropolis for me to leave it forever. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Over there has to stand for itself, has to speak for itself. Because it's only when over there becomes here that we can stop this once and for all. And from now on, my eye will be right here. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 People always say things like that. "I designed this weapon to hurt even you!"...So the hard part isn't hurting me. The hard part is surviving me. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Okay, I don't know what this is all about but we are taking this upstairs. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 There is no reason. Ever. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 I don't know what I believe anymore. Everything used to be so clear. Truth. Justice. The American Way. But now? Now, I'm not sure about anything. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Perhaps. But suppose I can't? However it happened, I've lost faith in those ideals. What if I don't find faith in them again? Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Well, maybe now Leslie will have a chance to find out. A second chance. That's what America is about, really. That's the American way. Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness-- and second chances. None of us are forced into being anything we don't want to be. When I was young, I knew that I would be someone different when I grew up. I would leave home and make a new life for myself. A new start, a second chance. When I first went to Metropolis, it was filled with people who'd done the same thing. People from all over America-- from all over the world-- who went to the city to live the lives they wanted, to be the people they wanted to be. That's the idea America that was founded on, but it's not just for people born here. It's for everyone. And it's for people like me and Livewire, too. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Those of you in the Fortress of Solidarity, if you're listening... I know the answer to the question now. Must there be a Superman? Yes. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Hammer? You should know better, Lois! I don't need no steenking hammer! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 You talk a good death scene, Metallo - but so far, its still just talk! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 I never thought you'd do it, Garth! Both you and Arthur have a lot to answer for! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 I have all this power... and I couldn't save them. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 We're going to finish this. Once and for all. You're different now. You can think for yourself. So think about this. Before, you were a mindless thing. Nothing could hurt you. You couldn't feel pain. Much less understand it. But, once you have felt it -- it changes you forever. And you'll begin to understand something new. Fear. I've lived with it all my life. You don't want to die again, do you? The agony of what's happened to you affects your speed -- your strength -- and that little bit of doubt -- that you cannot win today -- grows. You understand now, don't you? You will never hurt me again. You will never kill me again. NEVER AGAIN! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 In my time I have come to be known as one of the most powerful beings on Earth. But before the threat of what I must now face, all my power is as nothing. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 You've killed my best friends... you've killed me... you will kill no more! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 My sin? Was to save the world. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 I think about my life, about my loves, about my home, about my fight and about you…I will always be there to save you. Because I am Superman. Believe that, until the end. The end. I wonder, when it comes….who will save me? Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Is that really the way people see me, Lois? Like a disaster waiting to happen? Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Another skirmish in the never-ending battle... another war... another crisis... but so different. So important. If I lose, everything dies. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 I don't care what Washington wants. No one treats my city this way... no one! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Is war the only thing sentient beings have in common? Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Ohh... Clark's a pretty resilient sort of guy, Lois. It was touch-and-go for a while there... but... the next time you see him, I'm sure he'll be just fine. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 It's kind of a complex story, Lois. And one Superman would rather I kept to myself. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Something happening on the other side of Smallville, Ma - something that looks like a job for Superman! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Let this spire, built from the very engine that once stood here, serve as a tribute to their memory--and as a reminder to us that our kind shall always be needed. I swear, as long as I'm alive, there will be no more Coast Cities! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Part of me wishes I hadn't made it in time. It would have been ironic -- if Lex Luthor's twisted genius was responsible for his demise. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 The world needs to see again that there's a Superman looking out for them. You may not be here in body, but I know you are in spirit ... the colors will fly. Quote2

Quote1 Around here the only one making lists is Santa Claus! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 He wants Supermen, then that's what we give him--all in one place. Ring the dinner bell. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 You're Supermen and Superwomen. We're all created equal, because we want to help, and nothing will ever destroy that as long as there's one person left taking a breath with an 'S' on their chest. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 The other one. He's here. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Why does that have to be a negative? You specialize in worst-case scenarios, but whatever you say, however you spin it, I won't believe the world is more black than white... now more than ever. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Listen, son. One day you're going to have to choose what to do with your own fear... Whatever you choose, right or wrong, it's going to change people's lives. It's going to change the world, and it's going to change you. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Courage is fear trying to hold on a minute longer. We all need to find that extra minute inside ourselves if we're going to make it through this crisis. Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 You're talking about eradicating half of my son. Quote2

Quote1 You don't seem to understand, Parallax. Maybe you can't, by nature of what you are. Being afraid is a part of being alive. Fear exists inside all of us. I can't deny there's a little piece of you in everything. But people will always find a way to surprise you. There's so much more than terror in our hearts. There's also joy. Love. And hope. A single shred of hope can hold all the fear in the universe at bay. And mine gives me the will to capture you. Quote2

Quote1 I may have been conceived out there in the endless depths of space... but I was born when the Rocket opened, on Earth, in America. I'll cherish always the memories Jor-El and Lara gave me... but only as curious mementos of a life that might have been. Krypton bred me, but it was Earth that gave me all I am. All that matters. It was Krypton that made me Superman... but it is the Earth that makes me Human! Quote2

--Kal-El (New Earth)

Quote1 Stars aren't measured by how long they burn, Lar... but by how brightly. You've already accomplished more than a hundred men in a hundred lifetimes. If there's any consolation to be found... it's in that. Quote2
