So just for stars and garters, I decided to throw together a comic book quotes contest. I'm going to list 30 quotes, and your job is to identify as many as possible.Some of these quotes will be beyond simple to identify as they're so famous. Others...not so easy. In fact, I'm not expecting anyone to get them all, as you'd pretty much have to be me to understand where they come from.
Quotes span from the Golden Age to current times, and while they're dominated by Marvel and DC, there's indie stuff and other types of content as well. Most quotes involve one character, one panel, but there are a handful that feature either multiple characters or cross multiple panels. Also, there are some quotes that aren't actually quotes at all, but text from narrative captions.Scoring is as follows:
Identify title: 1 point
Identify issue number: 1 point
Identify character speaking: 1 point
Identify character being spoken to: 1 point
Identify any other relevant context: 1 point
So now that you all know the relevant details, let's get on to the contest:

Hod was Baldur's brother, but comics have always ignored that for some reason. At Marvel Hod was an ancient god. In the legend Loki changed the mistletoe to a thick, strong plant before handing it to Hod.
Death by pig. How embarrassing to have that on one's obituary.
To be fair, he never actually hit her with the pig. His secretary Dee-Dee tore into her pretty hard though.
This was a fun quiz. Guessing wild didn't do me much good. I got one I didn't know (28), but there was enough to go on in that case.
