"There's more--there has to be more--to being heroes than simply defeating villains. You have a role, a purpose far greater than yourselves. You have to set examples, lead the way. You represent what we should be, what we dream of becoming, not what we are."

(Ms. Marvel in an Avengers comic written by Chris Claremont)




It also reminds me of a bit that Delirium says to her brother Dream in a brief moment of clarity in Gaiman's Sandman:

"The things we do make echos. S'pose f'rinstance, you stop on a street corner and admire a brilliant fork of lightning — zap! Well, for ages after people and things will stop on that very same corner, stare up at the sky. They wouldn't even know what they were looking for. Some of them might see a ghost bolt of lightning in the street. Some of them might even be killed by it. Our existence deforms the universe. That's responsibility."
