I love this quote. I love this movie.
This scene impressed me so much when I first saw it. It still fills me with… idk something. I love it.
Still one of my favorite lines from a movie ever.
Pacing problems aside, the first movie should get more credit than it’s given. That’s how you do popcorn.
The 3rd movie was pretty great also, but for different reasons - clever staging and gimmickry, countercultural humor and sociopolitical monkeyshines.
Avoid the second movie like you owe it rent.
This is it. This is why I love Richard Rider and why he needs to return to Marvel. Bendis can write this “Cosmic Marvel 3.0” all he wants, but it’ll never come close to that magic Abnett & Lanning had.

And please, I don’t mean because it sucked. :)
I mean have you ever teared up because of a story or scene, or character, anything like that, from a comic book?
Yes, most assuredly.
The main story in the Starman Secret Files in the late 90’s cones to mind, where Jack and Ted Knight relay their histories, only to show how proud each is of the other on the closing page.
The death of Chuckles in GI Joe: Cobra was a matter stroke. Mike Costa nailed the story, and Chuckles defiant lady words of ” Yo Joe” as he assassinated Cobra Commander was awesome, but the flashback issue where Hawk finally reads his last words really hit home.
And, Brian Q Miller’s final issue of Batgirl. I adored that series, and the page where she was dressed as a Blue Lantern broke the emotion wall for me.
