Quote1 Nice exhibition, Rocco, or whatever your name is! Take a good rest... cause I'm going to give you the beating of your life! Quote2
--Thomas Halloway (Earth-616)
Quote1 I did what I could that night to protect my adopted home. I thought of old Matt Hawk and the stories he'd told me so many times... How he said it would all begin here in New York City. Was this the beginning? I wondered if he knew that it would begin in flames and destruction. And I wondered, not for the first time...why it seemed he'd known me even better than I knew myself. I had always valued knowledge more than action, but clearly that was changing. Because I had acted almost without thinking. Yes...it seemed clear that morning...that nothing would ever be the same again. Quote2

Quote1 The Phantom Bullet, only active a few months, and already struck down...left in the garbage. I didn't know him, but it hurt like I'd lost a brother. ... As they lowered the coffin into the ground, I could feel its weight being lowered onto my shoulders. I made a silent vow to bring his killer to justice. Quote2
--Thomas Halloway (Earth-616)
Quote1 This day would be remembered for many reasons. It would be the first time any human saw Namor and lived to tell about it. The first time we knew for sure a new age was upon us...an age of superhumans.But most of New York would remember this as the day the Human Torch stopped being thought of as a menace...a monster on the loose...and became one of our greatest heroes. Quote2
--Thomas Halloway (Earth-616)
Quote1 It was my second time meeting a living legend but this time I knew what it meant...that the world had already changed again. We just hadn't noticed yet. Quote2
--Thomas Halloway (Earth-616)
Quote1 But down in those waters, I saw New York's hero community witnessing its first true call to arms. There were heroes I'd met, and some I never saw before or again. I know most of us felt tiny in comparison to the devastation around us...but we did what we could. ... This was our first true call to arms. So there was no way Namor could have won the day...regardless of the destruction he'd wrought. And the strangest part of all...was that this day of great tragedy would be the first step...to another new dawn. Quote2

Quote1 Brian Falsworth died and was reborn that night. The world's second chemically-created super-soldier. Created behind enemy lines, in the very midst of the Nazis purest evil. He buried his friend before sunrise, and thought about his dying words...and knew that soon he would return to the place of his birth...to show the Nazis what he had become...a Destroyer. Quote2
--Thomas Halloway (Earth-616)
Quote1 I knew that the era old Matt Hawkins had told me about had finally arrived... An era of war and strife and loss, but also an era of wonder and scientific breakthrough...an era of marvels...an era of heroes. I stayed in my city, fighting mobsters, killers, and spies...and I watched other heroes come and go. And despite everything...it truly was the greatest of times. Quote2
--Thomas Halloway (Earth-616)
Quote1 Doctor Lang and Lil planned the rackets. The proceeds which were to be deposited in this vault and split seven ways at the end of a year! That was why they wanted the "Six Big Men" done away with -- so there wouldn't be any splitting to do and they would have it all to themselves! Quote2
