In the last panel, Ric looks like Magneto crossed with death rabbits.

I don't know Scott. Ol' Logan's chopped up many a bad guy in his day. There's plenty of heroes with razor-pointed weapons: Logan, Katana, even Batman's batarangs have pointed tips. I think your friend was right on with the first idea; however, Disney would probably sue him two times over. 1) they now own Wolverine and 2) anything with a "-keteer" is truly frowned upon.

I've written superhero fiction for about ten years and have had this very conversation many a time. Right down to the boxing gloves.

I really hope we get to see the Knifeketeer team up with Omnipresent Man, and maybe Rocket Hat ...

"The Knifeketeer" sort of suits him better without knives. After all, the Musketeers were more fond of their effete pointy swords than they were of their muskets.

Did you ask any of your friends before you posted the strip?

Panel 4, knife in his back, brilliant!!

January 25, 2010 | Unregistered Commentercasper

The Shoveller: You're the master of cutlery. You can't throw a knife sometimes when someone's trying to kill me?

The Blue Raja: No, I can't. You can't use a rake sometimes?

The Shoveller: No, I'm the Shoveller.

The Blue Raja: Well, I'm the Blue Raja. I'm not Stab Man. I'm not Knifey Boy. I'm the Blue Raja.

Knifeketeer could sharpen knives. Whenever threatened by a knife-fighter he could sneer at the dullness of the blade and offer to sharpen it, disarmingly.

Hey, Knifeketter could have a battle with Freddy Krueger ! I imagine he would wear some kind of armor suit that is layered with razor blades, safety razor blades that is, with the type of blades that only you would reccommend with the closest cut. Haha.

I love the fist-knife!

Noooooooooo...Rebekah stole my post...well, the part about Omnipresent Man, Rocket Hat and the Knifeketeer...Count Spokula could show up too...I mean, Marvel used to do that with stuff like having Dracula team up with Morbius to fight
Spiderman, or something crazy like that.

The whole strip is a riot, but Panel 4 is the payoff. Big belly-laughs there:
"...the Human Joke."
"Uhh, I call myself The Knifeketeer."
"I know."

TFF*

Reminds me of the time Rick wanted to be a superhero who throws axes or something.

And then Scott quipped his nickname should be "The Murderer"

to which Rick retorts "I was thinking more along the lines of the Axe-Thrower"

"Well this is more specific"

Re: my last post:

Aha! Here it is: http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2008/3/31/how-to-invent-a-superhero.html

Rick suggests a superhero that throws axes.

""The Knifeketeer" sort of suits him better without knives. After all, the Musketeers were more fond of their effete pointy swords than they were of their muskets."

So maybe the Knifeketeer uses a musket?

January 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKen

friends? think this applies to producers even more.

January 26, 2010 | Unregistered Commentergreco

Green Arrow gets a mention! Another victory for the Emerald Archer. (Sort of.)

Well, if it works, it works.

January 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRobin

That Mystery Men quote is _exactly_ where I went on reading the last panel.
I'll have to find that movie for my kids.
The policeman's expression and body language in that panel are spot on,
by the way.

January 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRobert

I pronounce the k in knife. I think Pronouncing Knifeketeer with the k would sound better. Kuh-nifeketeer

January 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJason

That's one awesome knife helmet.

The "officer" in the last panel looks like Dwight from "The Office". Makes it even more funny to me.

February 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStimpy

I wonder where he got all those knives, for as we all know money cannot by knives.

February 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDan

The cop looks like Dwight from The Office! Wonderful! :D

When I was really little I actually came up with a character with boxing-glove knives. I wanted to be him for Halloween, but my parents were less than supportive of the idea.

July 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterInky Bloc

That cop in the last panel is looking a little 'Rainn Wilson-ish'.

I like it

August 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterchris

wow, the knifeketeer looks surprisingly less like rick than i expected... and more like dan o'brien.

October 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJD

Death Rabbits! Ha! Frisky Dingo was a good show. They needed to continue the show though with them causing havoc in outer space.
