Avengers: The Initiative #28
The Hood – Arizona’s out. Too friendly with the targets. And California’s a bunch of left bleedin’ hearts. We could try Washington, or Montana…
Victoria Hand – Butterball… what can I say? He’s a surprise hit. Middle America loves him.
Norman Osborn – Of course. He’s fat and stupid. Just like them.
Dark Reign: The List – X-Men
Victoria Hand – But… Director Osborn– Why? There’s no strategic or political or military virtue in–
Norman Osborn – Because Namor screwed me over! So now he gets a message! Nobody does what he does and gets away clean. Revenge doesn’t need strategic or military virtue.
Uncanny X-Men #515
Namor – Is this place… a refugee camp? A reservation? Are you a hotel, a hostel, a fortress? Perhaps a compound. Or a sovereign state…?
Hank McCoy – Or a prison.
Professor X – No jetpack this time?
Cyclops – You want to save the jetpack for big entrances, Charles. Besides, we’re trying to convince the U.S. we’re not a bigger threat than Castro — We can settle for the unspectacular.
