    Quote:
    And this episode opened with that Justice Like Lightning poem that later showed up in Thunderbolts #1. Thunderbolts #1 said poet Thomas Randolph wrote that. But I don't think he did. I think Busiek got it from a comic that wrongly attributed it to Randolph.


It's a paraphrase of a piece written by Milo Sweetman, a fourteenth century Archbishop of Armagh. The original text runs:

"Justice, like lightning, ever should appear to few men's ruin, but to all men's fear. Of mortal justice if thou scorn the rod, believe and tremble, thou art judged of God."
