Cricket, Agent of U.N.I.C.O.R.N

“Cricket jumps out of the pages of Critter as she takes on a Russian terrorist cell as well as tackling her own internal conflicts. Cricket has choices to make like any other super powered person, but has her life of crime and her desire to see the heroes of the world punished for her father’s death been worth the struggle?

Villain or hero is a decision she has to make on her own – or with some careful nudging from Paradox.”

Breaking Bad

“Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn’t believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears! It ceases to exist without me. No, you clearly don’t know who you’re talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I AM the danger! A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me?
