->'''Snake''': Mei Ling, who is this kid with [[TsurimeEyes the cat eyes]]...?\\
'''Mei Ling:''' Oh, they call him Toon Link. Doesn't he look familiar?\\
'''Snake:''' Yeah, he looks just like [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link.]]\\
'''Mei Ling:''' But you know there've been several people who've gone by that name, right? They all have certain things in common--[[IconicItem green clothes, a sword, a shield...]] But they all came from different lands and lived in different eras. And yet the spirit of the hero of the Triforce is timeless. It's an essence that transcends history.\\
'''Snake:''' [[Franchise/MetalGear I think I can relate to that.]]\\
'''Mei Ling:''' Huh? What do you mean?\\
'''Snake:''' There's been more than one "Snake," too, you know...

->'''Doctor Strange:''' It would seem that ''eventually'', your time as the Iron Fist will end, and it will be another's turn. Just like there was a Sorcerer Supreme before I took the title. Eventually, for both of us, another will come along and take this all away from us. \\
'''Iron Fist:''' Someone younger, someone more handsome... \\
'''Doctor Strange:''' Probably. \\
'''Iron Fist:''' Well, I hate them. \\
'''Doctor Strange:''' As do I. But on weeks like this... \\
'''Doctor Strange:''' ...you sometimes ''wish'' for them.

->'''Star Girl:'''...and instead, I get the knockoff version of the Blue Beetle.

->'''[[Franchise/WonderWoman Diana]]''': "When I was younger, my elders recognized the dangers facing Man's World. A champion was chosen, an emissary to bring peace and justice, to act as an example. That champion was gifted by the Gods themselves. These bracers gift those who wear them with strength drawn from Gaea herself, granting great power and endurance, and speed, the gift of Hermes.

'''Asuka''': "You want me to…"\\
'''Diana''':"Yes, [...] By taking up the gifts of the gods, you will become more powerful than any man. You will rival Yui Ikari's child in strength and speed. You will even be able to fly."\\
'''Asuka''': "Fly? [...] Why me? Why give this to me?"\\

'''Asuka''': "Yes,"

->Once, she had harbored a hope that she might become a Supergirl. It wasn’t, after all, as complex and fraught with ceremony as becoming a Superman.
