Quotes by Carl Creel (Earth-616)Edit
- ...I remember the dinosaurs. They had the sense to run.
- What the Hell is that thing Wishbone's fighting? That ain't the Jailer. It's... it's Blinky.
- It's kinda cute, ain't it? I think he thinks he beat me when we tussled, too. So fulla himself he can't even see when the other guy throws the fight. Lemme show you something, Wishbone -- I still got all my teeth. You notice that?
- Right. The oxygen. I should shut my trap. Just... I dunno, I don't wanna go just sitting here, staring off into the dark, listenin' to myself die, ya know?
- All right, you wanna get in my head, freak? I got more than you can handle up here. You want to eat some pain, you bastard? Eat this!
- You know what that felt like? Carl Creel from Bronx, standing over the God of Thunder? I couldn't explain it if I tried.
- We had kept Wonder Man in reserve, outta sight. Figurin' Osborn would never dream in a zillion years he'd hook up with us. His mistake. Wonder Man zipped outta there like a bat outta hell, holdin' on to Osborn the whole way like his life depended on it. And the Avengers? All they could do is look up in the sky, wonderin' what the hell just happened? Worked like a friggin' charm.
- S.H.I.E.L.D. and the heroes crossed the line with us this time, messing with our heads like this. The fun and games are over. I'm done robbing banks. We're going to find every single prisoner S.H.I.E.L.D. screwed with in Pleasant Hill, get them together to join your new Illuminati. And then, as one big, happy family, we're going to make S.H.I.E.L.D. hurt for what they did to us. Really pay. Even if we have to kill them in their sleep.

- Ya don't honor someone's memory by giving up on yer own life! You ain't the only one who misses Thunderstrike! I do, too!
- If Crusher Creel can't walk outta here with a doctor -- then the Absorbing Man will!
- Mary's about the only good thing I got goin' for me. And I ain't about ta let it end like this.
- I ain't the smartest man around, but even I can see that you're doin' a good thing, Thor! Just like you helped my wife get doctored up a few months back. If any o' these suits are gonna take you down they're gonna go through me first -- 'cus from now on, I got yer back!
- Yeah! Yeah! I can already feel your power flowing into my body! Waa -- Wait! This don't feel right! It's too different! Too alien! What is she? WHAT IS SHEEEEEE?!
