General Wade Eiling: [yelling to the heavens] Superman, you coward! All your men are down, and you won't even show your face!
Shining Knight: [stepping out of the settling dust] He cannot hear even your bellowing, monster. As we speak, Superman rescues an entire star system a universe away. Do your worst. I'll not let you harm another.
General Wade Eiling: I do what I do in service to my country.

General Wade Eiling: Oh, you're afraid that I know you're The Flash? Don't get your tights in a twist, I've known for months. I wanted to come after you, I would've done it by now.
Barry Allen: But you think you're gonna need me.
