Delphyne the Gorgon: badass, queen of the Amazons, and winner of the Vault's award for Comic Book Dialogue of the Year.
Like many of you who take a bus or train to work, I do most of my comics reading during my daily commute and every now and then I read a bit of dialogue that makes me laugh my ass off. This morning's example comes from the latest issue of Marvel's THE INCREDIBLE HERCULES (#128 to be precise), in which teenage (relatively speaking; she's apparently immortal) and cute mythological Gorgon chick Delphyne declares to Hawkeye (actually Bullseye desecrating the memory of Hawkeye as one of Norman Osborn's Dark Avengers):
"I am not Greek. I am Amazon. And I was whetting my sword with mercenary scum like you since before my first period."
Now that's a badassed line. Too bad there's no way DC would have ever let Gail Simone write Wonder Woman saying something like that...
