"Supergirl: Bizarro (#1.12)" (2016)
Hank Henshaw: Maxwell Lord has a god complex, but he's not an actual god.

Hank Henshaw: What the hell do you think you're doing, Alex?
Alex Danvers: I have no choice, Hank. He's had us under surveillance. He knows about the DEO, he knows about Kara.
Hank Henshaw: I don't care if he's got the nuclear codes and his finger's on the button. That is not some anonymous alien you've brought in. That is Maxwell Lord, head of a multi-billion dollar organization. Time magazine's ranking person of the year. Everybody's gonna be looking for this guy.
Alex Danvers: They won't find him.
Hank Henshaw: You're compromising the security of this entire operation.
Alex Danvers: And he is compromising the security of my family. Guess which one I care about more. We are all willing to do a lot of things to protect our secrets, Hank. I would think you'd understand that better than anyone.

Alex Danvers: I sent a team to scan the area. No signs of extraterrestrial activity, so we can probably rule out an alien shapeshifter. Unless there's something you're not telling us.
Hank Henshaw: The skirt was surprisingly comfortable, but no.

Alex Danvers: He all but admitted it. He took all those girls. All seven. Even the Bizarro you.
Hank Henshaw: Is that what we're calling it?
Supergirl: Another Catco trademark.


"Supergirl: Pilot (#1.1)" (2015)
Hank Henshaw: Your ship. We keep it here as a reminder of the day you crashed on Earth. You're the reason for all of this.
Kara Danvers: Me? But... My... But my cousin was here two dozen years before me.
Hank Henshaw: And it was his arrival that triggered the need for this organization. We realized we weren't alone in the universe and we might soon would be getting more... immigrants. Sure enough, you came along. And with you, Fort Rozz.
Kara Danvers: Fort Rozz?
Hank Henshaw: Krypton's maximum security prison. Banished to the Phantom Zone, same place your ship got stuck. But just like yours, it didn't stay there. We're not sure how your pod got loose. What we do know is this. You pulled Fort Rozz with you. When it crashed, the alien convicts, the worst criminals in the galaxy, they all escaped. And you brought them here. These beings, some of them have powers from your darkest nightmares. For over a decade, they've stayed hidden. But in the last year many have been emerging,
Kara Danvers: I can help you stop them.
Hank Henshaw: How? You couldn't even stop us from capturing you.
Kara Danvers: I... I'm still learning.
Hank Henshaw: Our job is keeping people in the dark about alien life on Earth, and nothing says "covert operation" like a flying woman in a red skirt.
Kara Danvers: They know about my cousin, they don't fear him.
Hank Henshaw: Plenty of people do, just not popular to admit it. You wanna help? Go back to getting somebody's coffee.

Hank Henshaw: It's Agent Danvers and her sister from another planet.
Alex Danvers: She's here to help us fight Vartox.
Hank Henshaw: I told you I don't trust aliens.
Alex Danvers: There's no one I trust more

Supergirl: People of this city will die because something I did. I started this. You have to let me stop it.
Hank Henshaw: Make sure you win.

Alex Danvers: She followed your orders. She won.
Hank Henshaw: Yeah. This time.
Alex Danvers: Director Henshaw. I wasn't recruited because of my sister, was I?
Hank Henshaw: Yeah, she's why you got in. *You* is why you to get to stay.


"Supergirl: Manhunter (#1.17)" (2016)
Alex Danvers: You don't look so dangerous shoving Chocos in your face.
Hank Henshaw: How did you know they were my favorite?
Alex Danvers: You eat them at 3 AM. Only a favorite will do at 3 AM.

Hank Henshaw: I designed these bullets especially for you, Martian. "The most powerful being on the face of this Earth." You know who calls you that? Superman. Sure means something, coming from him.
J'onn J'onzz: I mean you no harm.

Hank Henshaw: I saw into Harper's mind. I saw him.
Alex Danvers: Who?
Hank Henshaw: Jeremiah. I saw him at Project Cadmus. Alex, he's alive. Your dad's alive.


"Supergirl: Falling (#1.16)" (2016)
Agent Vasquez: Ma'am, there's a fire downtown. A fireman is trapped on the roof.
Hank Henshaw: Punch it up.
[sees a fireman trapped under a steel beam]
Senator Miranda Crane: Supergirl, can you get there in time?
[Supergirl is already gone]
Alex Danvers: Yeah, she can.

Hank Henshaw: I'm sorry, Supergirl, am I boring you?
Supergirl: Only boring people get bored. Sorry, I thought you were talking about another alien agent of the DEO.
Hank Henshaw: All right. Let's move, let's move. Do I need to brief you again or have you got all that?
Supergirl: Kick alien ass.

Hank Henshaw: I know you just started working here again, but to be clear, our job here at the DEO is to catch aliens, not let them escape.
Supergirl: How 'bout you just get off my back for once, Hank?
Alex Danvers: Supergirl.
Hank Henshaw: I thought we were in a good place here.
Supergirl: We're in a good place, when I do what I'm told. When I don't, you come down on me. I am tired of it! You want to catch the K'hund, go try it yourself! You're just as strong as me, if you wanted to be.
Alex Danvers: You know how dangerous that is for him.
Supergirl: And it's not dangerous for me too? Every Kryptonian on this planet wants to kill me except my cousin. I have to live with that. And he could, too!


"Supergirl: Strange Visitor from Another Planet (#1.11)" (2016)
Alex Danvers: So what do we do now?
Hank Henshaw: We don't do anything
Alex Danvers: No. No. No. That's not happening. We are going to bring this thing in together.
Hank Henshaw: We are not bringing this in.
Alex Danvers: What do you mean?
Hank Henshaw: You know exactly what I mean... I will find its lair. And when I do I will drop this human coat I wear and break its body in half and BURY it in the dry sand.

Supergirl: I'm not leaving you alone with that thing
Hank Henshaw: You have to. I'm done.
Supergirl: Done? Done with what? It has Alex. We've got to stop it.
Hank Henshaw: This started because it wanted me dead- with my race gone if I'm all that's left. Let it have me.
Supergirl: No! This murderer does not get to win. And you don't get to give up!
Hank Henshaw: It will save Alex.
Supergirl: We don't get to choose. We fight!

Supergirl: I ask myself everyday why my mother didn't crawl into that pod with me. Now I know she felt guilty. She felt responsible for what happened on Krypton. That dying must've seemed... honorable But dying is a lot easier than getting back up when the world has ended. You have to get up. You have to go on.
Hank Henshaw: My road is done. I'll help Alex and then join my people wherever they are.


"Supergirl: Stronger Together (#1.2)" (2015)
Hank Henshaw: I see you share your cousin's appetite for wanton destruction, Miss Danvers.
Supergirl: You know, I am starting to answer to Supergirl.

Astra: You possess no weapon that could harm me.
Hank Henshaw: You're so wrong.
[stabs Astra with Kryptonite blade, she flies off]
Hank Henshaw: [to Kara] Any more family I should know about?


"Supergirl: Blood Bonds (#1.9)" (2016)
Supergirl: You know, you guys could have told me. I can keep a secret.
Hank Henshaw, Alex Danvers: No, you can't.

Hank Henshaw: You know, I wouldn't have minded you coming to work for the DEO full-time.
Kara Danvers: I can't leave this place. It's not just a secret identity to me. I almost did something today that I would have regretted the rest of my life.
Kara Danvers: What stopped you?
Hank Henshaw: My friends. The DEO keeps you human. They do that for me.


"Supergirl: Childish Things (#1.10)" (2016)
Supergirl: You can feel like all the time you know. Free. Untethered. True to who you're really are.
Hank Henshaw: The world needs Hank Henshaw more than it needs J'onn J'onzz.

Hank Henshaw: I have been J'onn J'onzz on Earth. I have tried it. I was hunted for 50 years. People I've loved have tried to kill me once they discovered who I really was.
Alex Danvers: I'm sorry. But times have changed. Look at Supergirl, the world loves her...
Hank Henshaw: Your sister looks like a pretty blonde cheerleader. J'onn J'onzz looks like a monster. I will never be tolerated here on Earth. The more time I spend as Hank Henshaw, the less I have to face what I've lost. But when I change my state, shapeshift into someone new, call upon new powers, I get one step closer to becoming the Martian Manhunter forever.


"Supergirl: Fight or Flight (#1.3)" (2015)
Hank Henshaw: Have you lost your mind? What were you thinking giving interviews?
Kara Danvers: I wouldn't say it was an interview exactly. It was more of a private conversation that's being published.
Hank Henshaw: What's next? A book deal? A reality show? Keeping Up with the Kryptonians?

Kara Danvers: So what are you saying? We just sit back and do nothing?
Hank Henshaw: Reactron, whoever he is, is human. Which means this case falls out of the DEO's jurisdiction.
Kara Danvers: This man flies and shoots nuclear fireballs! How is that not extra-normal?
Alex Danvers: He's using advanced biomedical tech. Man-made tech.
Hank Henshaw: I can't risk exposing this organization every time some human criminal shows up in National City.
Kara Danvers: And I can't just let the man run wild.
Hank Henshaw: Call your cousin. Superman fights for truth, justice and the American way. Last time I checked, National City was in America.


"Supergirl: Human for a Day (#1.7)" (2015)
Jemm: Bow your head when you approach me! I am Jemm, master of the Faceless Hunters! Conqueror of...
Hank Henshaw: Twelve worlds. Yeah, heard you the first 10 times. It's not getting any more impressive.

Hank Henshaw: I am not Hank Henshaw. He died the same night as your father. The DEO had been pursuing an alien for months. Not one of Fort Rozz prisoners, but an innocent one that was stranded on this planet. With the help of your father, the DEO tracked the alien to a remote location in Peru. Henshaw led the squadron sent to terminate him.
Alex Danvers: My father would never have been part of that mission.
Hank Henshaw: You're right. Jeremiah Danvers was a good man. He realized the alien we were hunting was no threat. He was a refugee, like your sister. Sole survivor of a lost world. Your father tried to stop the mission, but Henshaw was obsessed. He finally trapped the alien was hunting for so long. So, Jeremiah made the ultimate sacrifice. He gave his life to save that alien. Your father died a hero.
Alex Danvers: That alien... Is that you? But how are you him?
Hank Henshaw: I am a shape shifter. When Hank Henshaw died, I assumed his identity to reform the DEO. But I also made your father a promise, that I would take care of his daughter. I recruited you so that I would honor that promise and protect you as if you were my own child.
Alex Danvers: If you're not Hank Henshaw, who are you?
[transforms into his martian shape]
J'onn J'onzz: I am the sole survivor of my planet. The Last Son of Mars. My name is J'onn J'onzz.


"Supergirl: For the Girl Who Has Everything (#1.13)" (2016)
[SPOILER:]
[Alex killed Astra, but Hank took the fall for it]
Alex Danvers: Why did you lie to Kara?
Hank Henshaw: Because you're Supergirl's hero. And I don't want her to see you as anything but.


"Supergirl: Myriad (#1.19)" (2016)
Eliza Danvers: So, Mars... I have to ask, underneath it all, are you a little green man?
Hank Henshaw: I'm a big green man, actually.
Eliza Danvers: Ha! And how are you able to change form? Is it an enzyme or some other chemical catalyst your body secretes that allows you to reorganize your DNA? And how do you adjust for the change in body density? How does your respiratory system process the increased oxygen and nitrogen present in our air that...
[he laughs]
Eliza Danvers: What? What is so funny?
Hank Henshaw: Like mother, like daughter.


"Supergirl: Red Faced (#1.6)" (2015)
General Sam Lane: You let that thing get away. I thought you were on our side.
Supergirl: I tried. It fought harder this time, harder. Faster. Like it's learned a thing or two from the last go.
Lucy Lane: It's like it new you'd choose to save those people. The tornado was just a diversion to get away. He used your humanity against you.
General Sam Lane: And now more innocent humans could be in danger. If anything else happens, you and the DEO will both be held accountable.
Hank Henshaw: That's enough, General. My team analyzed Red Tornado's covering. It's made out of a biosyntheic polymer which contains traces of lead. To suppress x-ray vision, right? The android wasn't meant to fight insurgents. It was designed to kill Kryptonians.
General Sam Lane: You got Fort Rozz aliens locked up downstairs. Monsters. Abominations. Some of them have wings. Some have horns. And others spit acid. Do you know the difference between them and her? She's blonde.
Hank Henshaw: She saved you and your daughter, tonight. You don't owe fear and contempt. You owe her a thank you.


"Supergirl: Hostile Takeover (#1.8)" (2015)
Hank Henshaw: Kryptonians are impervious to my telepathy, which Superman finds hilarious.
