"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."

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."

"I'm not saying they [drunk particle physicists] will accidentally open up a portal to a parallel universe, I'm just saying while you have the chance, you and your loved ones should work out a secret signal so they can tell the difference between you and evil!you. Just in case. You can't just assume evil!you has a pointy beard and dramatic music everywhere he goes."
