Surprising Words Of Wisdom From 8 Classic Superheroes

Superheroes through their do-gooder deeds, are designed to capture the imagination and inspire millions of minds. Housed within each comic or animated series are often subtle cues about mortality, doing the right thing and being a force for good not evil. Unless you're Superman that is.

Unless you're a fan of the villains, then that's a whole other story. But acts of valour and courage aside, sometimes superheroes have the power to conjure up some poignant and surprising words of wisdom from amongst their own illustrated pages.

Graphic designer and comic book fan Adam Thompson used that as foundation for his unique graphic series Heroic Words of Wisdom, whereby he highlights some of his favourite quotes from 8 classic superheroes.

Superheroes already have a prominent place in pop culture. Their images can be seen anywhere. As a fan I enjoy seeing the strength of these characters in the spotlight, but because I am looking to reach a new audience, I needed to find a new light. I had to consider that comic books are a series of images accompanied by dialogue, and since it's the images that are already so prominent, I decided to focus on the dialogue.

In my mind, one of the most famous pieces of comics dialogue is the oath sworn by Green Lantern. I gave this some deeper thought and realized that the oath is, in a way, applicable to real life. Anyone, should they choose, can swear an oath to stand against evil. Then it hit me. Have all comic heroes said things that are applicable in real life? Have they all said things that can inspire any of us, comic fan or not?

Are their any famous quotes or mottos that you love from the realm of superheroes? If so, post them in the comments below, who knows it might end up on a new creation from Adam himself.
