    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."

Great quote; very chilling. I need to commit it to memory!
