Quotes: Mirror Universe
"Everything that exists has a specific nature. Each entity exists as something in particular and has characteristics that are part of what it is. "A is A"... And no matter what reality he calls home, Luthor is Luthor."
The Question, Justice League Unlimited — "Question Authority"

"Ugh. I hate that mirror. It makes me look masculine."
Aunt Zelda, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Archie comic storyline.

At some point, one has to accept that DS9’s “Mirror Universe” is really just a generic parallel universe where everyone is slightly more pissed off.

"Picture every gold, silver, bronze and rust age comic. Imagine a comic shop full of every DC comic ever. Now imagine that each one is about the Syndicate, and is about some lone hero rising up, and getting killed. Every issue is a forensic report of a new hero, alone and outclassed, standing up and getting murdered, brutally, publicly, colorfully, at the rate of one or two a month. It's not that the Syndicate are killers, but killers in equal measure to the heroes. It's evocative."
