Quote1 Iago is the name I have taken, but it is all the same. I am the one responsible-- --for youth's pain and age's dispair... for tyrants' ascendancy and pilgrims' descent... for the crashing of hopes and the untimeliness of death. I am... the evil one. But more than that, I am... The Man who Murdered Evil! ...and got away with it-- only to find out that in so doing I have become the mortal enemy of... Superman Quote2
