Sorry, Scott. "complement".
(Note from Scott: He was right, and it has been fixed. Thanx Zach!)

This is funny!

February 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKris L

Indubitably, props on the inside jokes; one wonders, however, if we'll ever get to see the exploits of this team?

"I curse 'cause I'm a %$@# mummy."
Best. Supervillain. Power. Ever.

February 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGeoff

Woah, inside references out the wazoo! Were I not a long-time follower, I'd be totally lost--as it is though, greatly hilarious comic, as per usual.

February 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBenn

"I am 'out of here.'" That is too epic! I need more Omnipresent Man!!

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteven M.

Amazing. Epic battle pitting old Ric against new Ric, rocket hat against spaghetti mummy and omnipresent man against omnipresent man eagerly awaited.

Well, you need to be well-versed in the Scott universe for this one, but if you are, the rewards are great. Thanks for the laugh as always.

Great comic, but where is mr. Law-expert? Miss The Judger is also very great!

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterReader

Awesome. Best collection of superheros ever. The only thing missing from the team is the Axe Thrower/Cold Blooded Murderer.

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

You could easily bow out on that one, but I hope you don't. Good job you didn't ruin it by forcing a joke in there about super heroes "complimenting" each other. There wasn't room for any more funny.

Spaghetti monster!! Only truly hilarious if you not only read Scott's comics, but also read the comments!!

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterS Kyle Davis

The "fist knife" still kills me.

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermisterfweem

You had me with the 1st panel. She's not impressed.

I love how the shadow of the place marker on Omnipresent Man's tunic is different, depending on the direction he's facing.

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWilson

this is great. But where is Southern Gentleman sipping mint julips? and, just how does Rocket Hat communicate his thoughts? Can't...stop....can't .....stop.....laughing !

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjames yeamans

Was.. that a reference to the 80s musical Chess with the "Judger" (in Chess it was the Arbiter) or am I just crazy?

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFox

I can't believe no1 commented on the other part of this, the wife as The Judger.
Perfect, because aren't all wives judgers on the inside?

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterstrikeher

I agree with Rocket hat man in that: there's so much wrong with omnipresent man's abilities. If omnipresent man is everywhere he must accidentally punch himself at some point when fighting bad guys, or poke himself in the eye when he points. does he shower in the nude? I foresee him fighting in the team of superheros, punching everyone, heroes and villains at once, including himself.

I think there should be an evil overlord, nicknamed "The Mullet".
I wonder who he would be in "real" life?

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterwisteriam

I just started reading the strip last week, and i'm so glad i took the time to crawl through the archives this one would make NO sense what so ever had I not. Can't wait to see omnipresent man punch himself in the face.

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteven

This made me cackle & snort in a very un-dignified manner.

February 11, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjeric

Omnipresent man returns, not that he went anywhere to begin with. The whole thing is brilliant, just brilliant.

February 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMP

Omni Present man has to be my favourite. What a brilliant creation! Thank you, Scott...

February 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSkut!

Perhaps the best B.I. ever! Just too friggin' funny...all the inside jokes. A gift for the true fans, but surely confounding for the first-time viewer. Thaks, Scott, you just made my day!

February 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterYes, I am Tubby

Omnipresent man is the best superheroe idea I've seen in quite some time. Thank you, Scott!

February 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGus

I didn't think Missy could be more awesome, until she became... THE JUDGER!

Seriously, she should never take off that wig.

February 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJustin

I am "out of here."


Also, I'd totally wanna see the Axe Thrower and the Axe Catcher get in on this.

February 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnother Rob

Hmm... I only just realised Rocket Hat doesn't say anything. Ever. I had assumed until now that this was a manifestation of his superior intellect, but I could be wrong. Perhaps we need some Instructions on how to appear more intelligent than you really are.

February 15, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersnowyowl

Omnipresent Man scares me...

February 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBrewmeister

Hey, where's future Scott with the radioactive-proof codpiece? He looks very super-heroish to me.

I'm rooting for the good guys. I think they're unbeatable. Villains would die laughing just looking at the Human... sorry, the Knifeketeer. He needs a powerful opposite. Perhaps the awful sens of humor of super-Mullet Boss?

February 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChristophe Thill

That... was... EPIC!!

So glad I've been catching up on the archives the past couple weeks before seeing this one, otherwise it would have lost much of its awesomeness!!

Keep up the great work Scott!

February 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterH elyK

Arguably the funniest comic I've ever seen. Really.

My wife didn't even smile though - I guess the countless references to previous comics means it only works for regular readers.

Genius, though. Genius.

February 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPhil Huff

The dark "glow" around the Judger is brilliant.

Don't think we don't notice these things!

Nicely done :)

February 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterE

> just how does Rocket Hat communicate his thoughts?

He speaks between panels.

February 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEric Phillips

Where's Omnipresent Man in the first panel?

March 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly

Love the T-shirt

March 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMattC

We're not your classic heros. We're the other guys.
