The Negotiator

Abram: And if I found forty among them? Would you still sweep away the innocent with the guilty?
Woman 1: Again, talking with his lord, God.
Woman 2: It is a great man who can appease the gods.
Woman 1: Abram doesn't appease. He negotiates.
Abram: What if I found ten innocents? Just ten worthy men?
Would you still burn the whole of Gomorrah to the ground?
 - Testament #2
by Douglas Rushkoff and Liam Sharp

Come to think of it, Moses was pretty good at this, too. And now I want to see a cop show (or cop comic book!) where Abraham and Moses are transported through time to the present and team up as the world's best hostage negotiators.
