Quotes / Failure Hero

Sin Cara, Sin Cara
Friendly neighborhood Sin Cara
Wears a mask, only fights
Underneath stupid lights
Look out!
Here comes the Sin Cara!

Can he botch? Listen, jerk:
His hurricanrana will never work
Jumps the ropes, that was nice!
(This match was recorded twice)
Look out!
There goes the Sin Cara!
Sin Cara anthem (parodying the ''Spider-Man theme)

Hobbes: Has Stupendous Man ever won a battle?
Calvin: Well, they're all moral victories.

Iím realizing Iím a pretty lousy hero. But Iím trying. I made a leap of faith. Iím asking you to as well.
Weaver, Worm (Crushed 24.4)

Did you think you mattered, Hawke? Did you think anything you ever did mattered? You couldn't even save your city. How could you expect to strike down a god? Anders/Fenris/Isabela/Merril/Sebastian is going to die, just like your family, and anyone you ever cared about.
Nightmare, Dragon Age: Inquisition

Tarquin: Look at you! What are you, a protagonist? I'm so proud! Have you thwarted any villains yet?
Elan: We mostly run away or have mixed victories. Wait, does Nale count?
Tarquin: Eh, not really.
Elan: Then, no.

"Pumaman is ten times the movie that Captain America is, at least. And I'm being serious; I'm not trying to be funny. Pumaman is a far superior film. Just look at Pumaman for a second: It's full of action beats. There's lots of fighting. (It's not great, but it's fighting.) The music is surprisingly catchy! (Little crappy, but catchy.) And Pumaman has actual fucking superpowers. I mean, OK, so flying and teleporting has nothing to do with being a puma, but hell, look at this! He's using superpowers! He's tearing a car up and flipping it over with super-strength! That's cool! He's doing stuff! And it even has a memorable villain in the form of Donald Pleasence, who even in crappy movies does a pretty damn good job. Now, don't get me wrong: the special effects were terrible, the mythology was ridiculous, and the hero of Pumaman was a whiny bitch, too. But at the end of the day, it was about a hero flying around and fighting crime. And he did it a lot. Something Captain America didn't get around to until the 75-minute mark."

Gabriel Macht isÖalright as the Spirit. I guess. I mean, he is not really asked to do a whole lot and that is another complaint I have: The Spirit doesnít really DO anything! Seriously, for as much power as he has, he is surprisingly ineffectual. Even after the climax I kept expecting something more from him. Seriously!? Thatís it? Its sad that I think the police actually have the crime issue covered and donít need a superhero.
Miles Antwiler on The Spirit (2008)

"All you ever do is wave your finger at how people are gonna get killed and yet you're constantly getting people killed! What's wrong with you?! You're terrible heroes! All of you!"
