'''Caller:''' Wow. I've never actually heard anyone say "cahoots" before. Look, all I'm saying is, I'd hate to imagine what would've happened if all those guys showed up and Spider-Man ''wasn't'' here.\\

->This began a series of events which lasted for about a year and threw her into contact with Lawson and Captain Marvel over and over again. Cape Canaveral was targeted by aliens, monsters, rampaging androids, even the Sub-Mariner and Iron Man, with Captain Marvel the apparent reason they were there, and Carol just trying to help General Bridges keep the thing from falling apart.

->'''Officer Wallace:''' I never much ''liked'' you, Batman. You and the rest of your "Bat Family". I always figured for every psycho you guys took down, another got inspired and popped up in their place. [...] You ''helped'' a lot of my friends, a lot of guys who wouldn't stop to ''spit'' on you if you were on fire. And it wasn't the ''first'' time you done that. I've been on the police force a lotta years. Sixteen of 'em. I remember the way things were ''[[ComicBook/BatmanZeroYear before]]'' you. Back when ''[[DirtyCop Loeb]]'' was [[TyrantTakesTheHelm commissioner]], not [[ByTheBookCop Gordon]], and everybody was crooked and everything was ugly. This [[CopKiller Wrath]] guy is on ''us''. Not you. Because of the way things ''used'' to be. At least now we got somebody fighting to make it ''better''. I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm ''sorry'', Batman. Maybe having all these ''[[NonPoweredCostumedHero Bats]]'' around Gotham... [[DefiedTrope maybe that ain't necessarily a]] ''[[DefiedTrope bad]]'' [[DefiedTrope thing]].

->'''Sousuke Aizen''': Kisuke... One rainy day, centuries ago, you wished for an equal that you could be matched against. Because you were lonely, oh so lonely, isolated by your power. And the Hogyoku heard your desire, and created ''me''.\\
'''Kisuke Urahara''': No... No!\\
'''Sousuke Aizen''': I was made for ''you'', Kisuke. All of this was done for ''you''. I am the manifestation of your loneliness and your will to power. I am a perfect avatar of the Hogyoku, and I always have been.
