“For a few breaths he forgets himself in the swim of nature around him. Its rhythm is so different from Bit’s human own, both more nervous and more patient. He sees a bug that is smaller than a period on a page. He sees the sky, bigger than all that’s in his head. An overwhelm from two directions, vast and tiny, together.”

–Lauren Groff, Arcadia, 2012

“YOU SPEAK SO CASUALLY OF DEATH, VIPER. I GREW UP WITH DEATH. I WALKED HAND IN HAND WITH IT ALL MY LIFE! I SAW CHILDREN STARVE IN THE RUINS OF STALINGRAD, AND MEN FREEZE SOLID AS ICE OVERNIGHT. BECAUSE I KNOW DEATH SO WELL…I KNOW HOW SUPREMELY PRECIOUS LIFE IS!”

–Chris Claremont, MARVEL TEAM-UP, Vol. 1, No. 85, “The Woman Who Never Was!,” 1979
