I would have gone with "Super Supreme Earth-Tyrant".
You basically captured the essence of Battleship right there. Beautiful.
If it were Rick rather than Mullet Boss, I would have started with J 10...
Okay, now you are just trying to get laughs or something.
Like some kind of COMEDIAN. Well I won't stand for it!
Your expression in panel two does NOT make me giggle like a schoolgirl! NUH UH.
I would have done something more along the lines of "Supreme Ruler of Earth" rather than use tyrant. I'd make a benevolent dictator.
1.)Anyone remember Jack Klugman's memorable performance in MB Battleship commercial from the late '60's - early '70's?2.)I would have insisted Mullet boss either be forced to wear child's style sailor suit c. 1909 or also add " ... Who Sunk My Battleship!" to "Supreme Earth-Tyrant Meyer". The humiliation must be ... humiliating, not merely annoying.

Another 2008 comic, Scott? Jeez -- it's February.
Oh -- good one.
Ah the internet. Where you can be hateful AND anonymous. Every cowards dream.
Thank you, CBS. I know izzy and I have both already kicked what off this blog... if we could only get others to join our campaign. What, you are an ass! There, I've said it.
Woot! we rock!
DO NOT TEST MY PATIENCE!
scoot, not to complain or anything, but you've been using the same drwing for most of your comics. I rarely see new designs. When are you going to update?
sorry i mean scott
@Isaac: So would that be like the Supreme Earth-Tyrant with olives?
@ Marcus: It's like we're soulmates.
I would have gone with SUPREME EARTH-TYRANT. But that's just me.
HA, I love the fact that you stuck the Bangles reference in there after the last comic having been the spoken rendition of the Bangles song. Of all the groups about which to stick in subtle references. Classic.
Two Bangles references in a row? Awesomeness! Supreme Earth-Tyrant Scott, I bow to you.
