Mark Waid Quotes: We All Want To Live In A World Where We

We All Want To Live In A World Where We Can Make A Difference ... That's Why Spider-Man Fights The Good Fight. Or Captain Marvel. Or Me. Or ... There Are A Lot Of Us. And We Don't All Wear Masks These Days. Iron Man Went Public. So Did Captain America. Others. Probably Because It's Harder To Keep Secrets In An Internet Surveillance Age. But I Think Some Of It, Too, Is That The Ethical Paradox Can Wear You Down. No One On The White-hat Side Has Ever Hidden His Or Her Identity With Less Than Noble Intent: To Make The Fight About Something Bigger Than Us. To Represent A Greater Justice, Where The Focus Can Be On Right And Wrong ... And Not On Whether The Bad Guys Will Exact Reprisal On Those Close To Us. And Sometimes You Have To Lie ... Because You Can Justify A Lie If Lives Are Riding On It. Even As You Fight For, As The Saying Goes, Truth And Justice ... Even If You're A Lawyer Who Has Sworn To Live By The Truth ... You Willingly Bear False Witness.
