Just a reminder, on April 3rd I’ll be doing a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything). You can find out more here.

A female character who knows everything....OK, so what is her super power? All women already know everything! I don't have to ask. They tell me frequently! Strangely, if I do ever ask them a question, all they say is "If you don't know, I'm not going to tell you." I guess I must already know everything they tell me, so why don't they EVER shut up?
Technically, Omnipresent Man should also be in frames 3 and 4.
Third Person might as well be "The D-Bag" with that attitude, even if it is the Knifeketeer that she is talking to.
Wouldn't she KNOW she'll like it there?
@Baza Wait, you can't see them?
have mullet haired boss join the team, he could be "The D-Bag".
Okay, Foursythe, okay...The meaning of life is personal - what gives your life meaning.The secret to immortality is reincarnation - otherwise you'd stop being able to adapt to changes in just a few millennia.Both for men and women, the longer the better, no limit - but men mean inches, and women mean hours.I'm not going to tell you the secret to wealth because it is immoral.
I like how these characters live in a universe where the only hero who is even remotely effectual is the powerless guy holding a boxing glove capped knife.
Omnipresent Man and Mister Everywhere are also in Panels 3 & 4, but just out of the viewers' sight (as 3rd Person was about to tell us). Rocket Hat, of course, has been yet again kidnapped by the forces of the Emperor of the Moon during the distraction caused by the Knifeketeer's attempts at cutting this semantic confusion – but he'll be back soon...
The Third Person is The Fifth Member!
…and the commenter’s thinly-veiled misogyny fails to phase Third Person, nor her readers.
Rocket Hat always gets all the best lines.
Hmmm. This is the first character Scott has created that I instantly don't like. Good work!
Uh, it would be D-Bag if a man were playing the part, guys.It's not just women who do that. Managers, bosses, marketing, sales and internet posters all have this "Mystical" ability to know the internal monologue and motivations of others.
(If you're kidding about, probably a good idea to let people know because only Third Person knows that. And if you're kidding, know that you're going to be "kidded" back with male tropes too, so don't get bent out of shape by it, m'kay?)
4th Panel win!
I notice she didn't speak to Rocket hat
She should have a secret identity as a mild-mannered newspaper journalist. And that's all that she does. I just hope it's a classy newspaper. But she could be writing for the tabloid of record. But I don't know if I could look at one of those if I knew it was all true.
Baza: in panels 3 and 4, Omnipresent Man is standing behind you.
Is 3rd married to Rickey henderson??
Omnipresent Man and Mr. Everywhere <I>are</I> in panels three and four. You simply can't perceive them because they're also everywhere else at once.
