"You enjoyed his dance. It's your fault."
Quentin Tarantino (paraphrased) on Mr. Blonde's Moral Event Horizon, from the "Making Of" feature in Reservoir Dogs

"Meanwhile back in the Crystal Palace... Well, crap goes down. Much like how Hyperion regenerated himself, the Deadpool that Sabertooth killed fifty issues ago regenerates. Realizing that he has a healing factor Mimic can use, they free him... But people often forget that Deadpool is not a good guy. So when he hears about what's going on, he kills Doctor Strange and gets Heather to revive other members of Weapon X so they can have fun with the Crystal Palace's equipment."

W-wait! He doesn’t kill her instantly? How can this be? Could it be true that Bladevash has learned compassion? Empathy? He knows that lives besides his own have value? That every being on this earth is its own one-of-a-kind treasure?
Yes! He has become a new man/wolf/thing! This is a dawning of a new age of peace and justice! Oh wait, hang on. Let me check the story again…
… Okay. False alarm. He brutally kills her and everyone she’s ever met in about ten minutes. Never mind.
Normalman comments on this page of the Christian Humber Reloaded webcomic.

"I wanted to lull the audience into a false sense of security with who this character was. We had seen him in the films and the literature post-incarceration where the world knows exactly who he is and what he is and what he's capable of. He had no motivation to hide any of it, so I wanted to really get the audience into Hannibal's corner as a likeable character. Then when he does terrible things, you've already fallen in love with him and like him as a character. So you have to then juxtapose what you've just seen against what you've experienced in the previous episodes. But the first time he smashed Alana Bloom's head against the wall, it's startling. It's like, 'Oh, yeah. We're watching Hannibal. He's that guy.'"
Bryan Fuller on his characterization of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, Hannibal
