So I will fight to preserve that same opportunity -- to love, to dream, to soar among the stars -- for all those yet to come.

Quote1 Power without reason! Malice without constraint! Festering with the acidic bile of pure, unadulterated corruption! A primal embodiment of mankind's darkest nightmares! Quote2
--Norrin Radd (Earth-616)
Quote1 Even though he bared his Spirit to me by means of his Soul Gem and was twice instrumental in saving the Universe I still do NOT completely TRUST the Man. Perhaps it is because of the Confidence he exudese from having returned from beyond the Grave. More likely it is because Good and Evil mean nothing to him. His only Goal is protecting this Reality from his precious and powerful Infinity Gems and safeguarding them from a Universe that fears and craves them. So focused is he upon this Intent that all other Considerations become secondary. No, I am definitely NOT in the Mood for Adam Warlock. Quote2

--Norrin Radd (Earth-616)
Quote1 When, if ever, they learn to live in peace...As brothers? When will they learn...That love is the power supreme? Quote2
--Norrin Radd (Earth-616)
Quote1 Though not even I have the power to slay you...Still I can make you feel pain! Still I can cause you to suffer--to fear...To pay for your acts of evil! Quote2
