"I'm a super genius. It's my power."
Where is the horse and the rider?
Where is the horn that was blowing?
They have passed like rain on the mountains, like wind in the meadow.
The days have come down in the West behind the hills...into shadow.

In my game last Saturday, one of my players said the following:

"We are the dumbest superheroes ever."

When interrogating a Neo-Nazi on a roof top, the PC speedster of the group had a great line. His dad is the famous Captain Thunder. While talking to his team member he almost blew his secret identity with this line:

"Hey, you know what my dad always says! Oh s**t, now I have to kill this guy!"
"He who does not punish evil commands it to be done."

I was running a Super-villain game. The big-bad who leads the PCs had supplied each character a big pile of gold and jewels. As the villain left he reminded the PCs the tell the zombie-like mooks how to deliver the money:
"Um... You keep it."

"What do you mean I take a hit? I'm the Brick!"

From a horrid Mage Game at a con:
"The box is Magick proof."

"I know, that's why I'm using the X-ray projector and Eitherscope to pierce through the atomic structure of the metal construction to peer into the mysteries of its very nature through the judicious use of Science!"

"I told you the box was Magick proof."

"And I told you I don't use Magick you bloody jackininny! I'm a Son of Either in a wheel chair with a bald head...wait...why is Pandora pawing the box? Blood Hell..."

Not M&M, but once in a D&D game I was playing a game where the party was looking for two wood tablets with magical runes on them. Playing the Cleric, it was my job to decipher the text. Upon finding them and picking them up I was told they appeared to be in the shape of two small ironing boards. My immeadiate response was:

"Ok, I'll decipher'em, but don't expect me to part any Red Seas or nothing".

From a looong time ago playing the old MSH game.

Our group got into a fracas with the Avengers. Our big robot 'Hammer' was squaring off against the Black Knight and that nifty sword of his.

As Black Knight attacks the player of Hammer says, "Just tell me when his sword breaks!"

Um..yah...Ebony Blade vs. Robot...robot loses.

Well, let's see.

"I just talked down the Punisher. Don't mess with me."

Other ones. "Okay, my guy has sex with Crush in the bank vault."

"I pull out three guns. One from both hands, and one from my...you know."

On meeting Thrill Kill.

Thrill Kill: Hey, you're kinda cute.

Matt: I'm a guy!

Thrill: I'm gay.

Matt: I'm too young!

Thrill: I like them young...

Matt, the player, promptly curled up into a ball, and began sucking his thumb.
I want to see everything there is, and then I want to see more.

Live long, and prosper. (Makes the Vulcan hand gesture)

Long ago, in a Champions Campaign:

Dark Rune (a magic using hero): Stand back eveyone. I can handle this. I'm a master of the mystic arts.

The other heroes: Eyes roll, laughs, and groans.

Dark Rune: I didn't say I was the Sorcerer Supream, just a master of the mystic arts. Sheesh!

A rather vicious player, when he hit a normal (physically, this guy was nasty in other ways) and killed him. 1 blow, dead villain. "Oops. He broke." Complete lack of anything involving compassion.

During a game of Stormbringer (an RPG set in the world of Elric of Melnibone) a few years ago, our party was aboard a sailing ship a few days out of the Isle of Purple Towns (a major maritime trading nation) when we were attacked by pirates. Naturally we were boarded and a battle ensued on the deck of our ship. At one point my PC fumbled her attack, resulting in her scimitar going over the side of the boat. In desperation she lashed out with a groin kick at the pirate about to gut her with a broadsword, rolled a critical hit and rolled maximum damage. He did so much damage that the GM ruled the pirate flew back ten feet from the force of the kick.

GM: "Okay, now I have to make Will saves for the other male combatants who saw that, to see if they go into a mass cringe and can't act next round."
Another player piped up at this point. "Um, GM, did you say that the pirate flew back ten feet? Not stumbled but flew???"
GM: "Yes, I did. Check out the damage roll." (shows damage dice to players. Several wince.)
Player: Forget about making Will saves for the NPCs and PCs to avoid cringing, man! Start rolling for us to avoid the mass cringe!!!"
Me (smiling sweetly at Player): "By the way, you haven't chipped in for your share of the pizza or munchies for, what, three sessions now. Isn't that right?"

The player in question went white and promptly moved his hands to protect himself from the type of attack my character had just done.

:D
