"They tried. It started in secret, with the Illuminati. When they discovered that universes were colliding, the smartest and very best of us attempted to save everyone. They tried everything to prevent the incursions. The improbable... the impossible. And then eventually, the unthinkable—destroying worlds! It was too much. And these great men who had done such great things... they all broke. They splintered. And in their absence something worse took their place—the Cabal. Everything turned upside down and inside out. Including these people who had once been colleagues and friends. They tried as hard as they could. Just like anybody would. It just wasn’t enough."
—Franklin Richards

"We know so much more than we understand. But we know so little [...] Many believe the white light you see when you die is the supercharged electric whimper of a desperate and dying brain. Synaptic death. But it’s not. That brilliant blinding light is God. And he has been with us all along."
—Opening Narration

"You humans and your unseemly theatrics. There is no honor in running from death. People should know when their time is up."

—Reed Richards, Earth-1610

Then you have children, and you realize what a fool you were to believe that. And now, I have lost everything. We have all lost everything. My entire life I believed in better days ahead. I believed in tomorrow. I hid that belief in my heart—a stronghold against a world that devours hope. But now the walls have fallen. I have been overrun. And I hope... I believe... in nothing."
—Reed Richards, Earth-616
