* Mister Miracle #7 has one of the more romantic (and badass) Kirby moments, when Scott decides to return to face Granny Goodness, and tells Barda to not to follow:
--> '''Barda:''' No deal, Mister Miracle! We'll go down that old shark's mouth ''together''!! - then I'll beat her to death from the inside!!
** Bonus points for Barda being loosely based on Kirby's wife.
* The [[AllLovingHero Forever People]] are this in a way - Kirby, the cigar-chomping WWII infantry vet who grew up on some mean streets, looked at the hippie kids in 1970 and went, "Yeah, the kids ''are'' alright.''
