Lex Luthor: God is tribal, God takes sides! If God is all-powerful He can not be good, if God is good He can not be all-powerful.
Batman: You're not brave. Men are brave.
Batman: I bet your parents taught you that you mean something, that you're here for a reason. My parents taught me a different lesson. Dying in the gutter. For no reason at all. They taught me the world only makes sense if you force it to.
Lex Luthor: You don't need to forge a silver bullet. But if you do, you don't need to depend on the kindness of monsters.
Martha Kent: Be their hero, Clark. Be their angel, be their monument, be anything they need you to be... Or be none of it. You don't owe this world a thing. You never did.
Lex Luthor: If man won't kill God, the Devil will do it.
Lex Luthor: Devils don't come from hell beneath us. They come from the sky.
Clark Kent: Civil liberties are being trampled on in your city; people living in fear. He thinks he's above the law.
Bruce Wayne: The Daily Planet criticizing those who think they're above the law is a little hypocritical, wouldn't you say? Considering every time your hero saves a cat out of a tree, you write a puff piece editorial about an alien that could burn the whole place down.
Clark Kent: Most of the world doesn't share your opinion, Mr. Wayne.
Bruce Wayne: Maybe it's that Gotham City and me... We just have a bad history with freaks dressed like clowns.
Bruce Wayne: Twenty years in Gotham. How many good guys are left? How many stay that way?
Alfred: That's how it starts. The fever, the rage, the feeling of powerlessness that turns good men...cruel.
