And not emit those rays from your head that look like you're thinking critically.

His aim is to be able to smile, and murder while he smiles.

Oh snap, she called him a Jameson, it's on now.

In JJJ's defense, the comics always portrayed him as having some fairly positive traits, such as a strong opposition to racism (including anti-mutant sentiments)...It's mostly toward Spidey that he was a total dick.
And speaking of total dicks, Zach isn't really showing himself to be a paragon of virtue at this point in the story.

Indeed, he isn't. And his inner monologue in the last panel is ambiguous: Is he concerned that he's enjoying others' pain, or that he's being too obvious about it? I like that ambiguity, from a storytelling perspective.

I interpreted it as the latter.
