Panicking sidekick/love-interest/squirrelly villain: “For the love of GOD!”
Growly Badass Protagonist: “God? God’s got nothing to do with this.”

Baffled sidekick/love-interest/squirrelly villain: “What in God’s name…?”
Growly Badass Protagonist: “God? God’s got nothing to do with this.”

Pleading sidekick/love-interest/squirrelly villain: “Think this through for God’s sakes!”
Growly Badass Protagonist: “God? God’s gonna sit this one out.”

Sound familiar? Sound achingly, groaningly familiar? That is because IT HAS BEEN DONE.

NOBODY ELSE DO THIS.

(Weighing in on the Devil’s position, however, is still okay for the time being, as in:
Tough, skeptical lady cop: “I’m sorry, I don’t believe in the Devil.”
John Constantine*: “You should, he believes in you.”
)

*And before I get a bunch of crap about how Constantine was shitty, you have to admit, Hellblazer readers: that’s a pretty Constantinesque line.
