    • QUOTES (10)

      • Ben: Yeah, come on. We don't get attacked that much.
        Susan: Ben, the building has been shot into space, pulled underground, invaded by Doombots, attacked by a giant monster, turned into a bomb and infested with bugs from another dimension.
        Ben: Yeah, but I think most of that was Johnny's fault.

      • Ben: Nothing like falling 30 stories to start your day.

      • Tony Stark: Please, come right in. Though, you know, this is a very high-tech building. We have things called doors.

      • Ben: You know, you're pretty calm for someone who almost got deep-fried. It's just another day at the office for you?
        Tony Stark: You'd be surprised.

      • Iron Man: I told you to leave this to me.
        Johnny: Easy, Iron Chef, I'm sure you've totally got this covered. Oh, except for that guy shooting at you. And that guy.
        Ben: Yeah, Shellhead. You're doing so good getting blasted I think up there, maybe I'll just take a little nap.

      • Dr. Doom: Do you really think the two of you have a chance against my terrible power?
        Ben: Oh, your terrible power!
        Johnny: And all this time, we thought we were fighting your terrible smell.

      • Dr. Doom: You would be wise to stay down, monster.
        Ben: No one ever accused me of being wise.

      • Dr. Doom: I offered you a chance for survival.
        Iron Man: Sorry, Doom, I'm a little more ambitious than that.

      • Dr. Doom: You have made yourself a deadly enemy today, Iron Man. We shall meet again.
        Iron Man: But I don't want a deadly enemy.
        Ben: Yeah, you get used to it.

      • Reed: Let's call it even. After all, there are so few of us.
        Tony Stark: What? Rich, handsome geniuses?
        Reed: I actually meant superheroes, but that works, too.
