    Simply put, quote the greatest line a superhero ever said in a movie. Superhero here can be defined as movie protagonist or antagonist.

    Mine is definately thé quote:

    'Haku Macente!' (phonetically speaking)

    from the motion picture The Mummy Returns, not that great a movie at all, but it feature indeed the greatest movie hero ever to grace the screen, the Scorpion King...

    SPOILER AHEAD!

    At the end of the movie "Dragonheart" (I nearly always cry then. It is so beautiful...and sad. I love dragons, and I love the stars, so this is twice as moving for me.):


    Bowen: Without you Draco, where will we go, where do we turn?

    Draco: To the stars Bowen, to the stars.


    I also know another quote, but it is not from a movie. It is from a game, called "The Longest Journey". It is in a conversation between the main character April Ryan, and a mysterious guy called Cortez, I think.

    "… The happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story."
    "But what if there isn't a happy ending at all?"
    "There are no happy endings, because nothing ends."


    And that's all the quote I can think of right now.

    imo, the best quote from the mummy was "Death is only the beginning". I thought Dragonheart was awesome too, the quote I remember most was:
    "Strike!"
    "You are my friend..."
    "Then, as my friend, STRIKE PLEASE!"
    hehe.
    but the most awesome movie quote from a superhero movie is from Batman. "Have you ever danced with the devil by the pale moonlight?"

    A superhero needs to make impact. And what better way to start a movie by a line uttered by the people's champion, the great one, the Brahma Bull, the Rock. So many nickname still can't catch the essence of his personality. In his greatest role ever, the Scorpion King, he ignites the audience like he always does, in a grand way.

    Yes, Batman is a superhero out of comic and legend, but the Scorpion King is so very real.

    (btw people I don't mean all this, just stating the obvious)

    I'll say it another time, 'Haku Macente'!!!

    If I knew what Hack My Sentry meant it might be a reasonable quote. I wouldn't call the scorpion king very real (his animation really stunk).

    I did like the squishing of the scorpions and spiders at the beginning of movie. :D

    I'm looking forward to hearing "IT'S CLOBBERIN' TIME!!"

    Oh, I just thought of one....

    "Anything happens, my fault, your fault, nobody's fault and I'm gonna blow your head clean off."

    John Wayne -- and yes, dammit, he was a superhero. :D

    I think there was no hello. I mean, he is telling him he is gonna kill him. Would you say hello? ;)
    No offense meant.


    I am still not sure. Is it supposed to mean anything? Does the mummy say that? Is it a sentence that is supposed to sound like ancient egyptian (remember, we don't know how they spoke, or even how they placed their vowels. Example: "Nefertiti" [english name for the wife of Echnaton, who was Amenophis the third, I think] is the same person as "Nofretete" [german name], while "Nefertari" is an entirely different person [wife of Ramses II]).
    Do you think I should look it up if it means anything? :D

    Jazhara7: Yep, there is a "hello". He kept on repeating it while he was chasing after the 6 fingered man. He also said it the first time he uttered the line in the movie, talking to Westley (Cary Elwes) before they had a duel.

    Spider Man: You have a knack for getting in trouble.
    Mary Jane: You have a knack for saving my life. I think I have a superhero stalker.
    Spider Man: I was in the neighborhood.

    Alright it's more a conversation then a line but It's one of the few good dialogs from Spiderman!

    eveningdrive: Ah, okay. I have to watch that movie again. A big "Hurrah!" for Peter Falk (I want "Columbo" on DVD!)!


    And another line, this time from DOGMA:

    "Behold the Metatron, herald of the Almighty, voice of the one true God!
    Behold the Metatron, herald of the Almighty, voice of the one true God!
    Behold the Metatron, herald of the Almighty, voice of the one true God!"

    ...although the last line actually ends in a kind of spluttering noise, due to...um...fire extinction. :D

    Hmmm, I have to say, that I would not really call very many of the quotees mentioned above as "superheroes". How on earth is The Scorpion King a superhero?

    Now Superman is a superhero:

    "All those things I can do. All those powers. And I couldn't even save him."

    The Phantom is also a superhero and I know that, as a man of few words, he has some great quotes, but I can't remember any of them.
