Superhero slogans, catchphrases, words of wisdom, and general declarations and utterances have flooded the popular consciousness since the dawn of comic books. Delivered via word balloons, actors’ mouths, or radio and television voice-overs, one cannot deny the power of superhero speech.
Adam Thompson has taken it upon himself to illustrate his favourite Super Heroes words on wisdom. Superheroes featured in the collection include Superman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Batman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter and Green Arrow. Speaking about the project, Thompson states:
“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?“
