“I may not be smart enough to do everything, but I am dumb enough to try anything.”
Geoff Johns, Teen Titans, Vol. 3: Beast Boys and Girls

“Green Lantern: "What are your powers anyway? You can't fly."
Batman: "No."
Green Lantern: "Super-strength?"
Batman: "No."
Green Lantern: "Hold on a second... You're not just some guy in a bat costume, are you? Are you freaking kidding me?!”
Geoff Johns, Justice League, Volume 1: Origin

“Everyone looks up to you. They listen to you. If you tell them to fight, they'll fight. But they need to be inspired. And let's face it, "Superman"... the last time you really inspired anyone -- was when you were dead.”
Geoff Johns, Infinite Crisis
