  • When Alan defeats Obsidian for the second time, he gives us this badassery:
    Alan Scott: That's why the Justice Society is so important to me. To Jay and Ted and Carter. Jay and his wife couldn't have children of their own/ Ted lost his son. Carter neglected his. And I... I was never even there for mine. We failed our children. But we won't fail again. I won't fail you again. You or any of the Children if the Justice Society. That is my oath.

  • At one point Mr. Terrific is having a near death experience and sees his deceased wife. In the past he confessed to Dr Midnite that when he thought of her he only saw her dead body instead of her smile. After he is revived he tells the doctor that he saw her smiling again.
  • In the last issue of Geoff Johns' run, Ted Grant tells his son how he used to pity Stripesy having to be the sidekick of a teenage superhero, but has since realized that there's a certain pride to be found in standing back and watching younger heroes find their way. Tommy asks him what the hell he's babbling about, and Ted just gives him an affectionate noogie and says, "I'd be your sidekick any day of the week, you pain in the ass."
