"The Engineer has spent his adult life extending the possibilities of his own with technology...using his own body as a test bed for the changes he wants to make to the world."
― John Cumberland/The High describing the Engineer (Wildstorm/DC Comics)
"Yes, by all accounts, I should, in fact, be dead. Incinerated in the fires of your sun. But fate, it seems, saw fit that I'd have a second chance. And thanks to the power of the Big Gete Star, I have been reborn stronger and sleeker; new and improved, you might say"
― Meta Cooler to the Z Fighters (Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler)
"My robot brain needs beer."
― Aaron Stack/X-51/Machine Man (Marvel Comics)
"You were the sun in my sky, the light is moving away. The shadow that it casts of me is changing shape. The light starts to fade and now I'm afraid. I'm not a person. (x2) You got me again, you're not what you seem. Someone wake me up, another bad dream. I stay awake with my head in my hands. I'm up at 2:00 AM, wondering who I am. You turned me into something that I never really wanted to be. And now I'm having so much trouble remembering what you did to me. I'm not a human being. No remorse, no emotion, I became a machine."
― TERRORBYTE - HOLOGRAM
