Three Ricks in one comic? He really is Mr. Everywhere!

May I inquire... Is it possible for Omnipresent Man to ever 'pull himself together' or be in less places at one time?

November 3, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSamantha

Handle it? I can't even REACH it.

Any chance of the Omnipresent Man logo on a t-shirt?

great comic as always Mr.Meyer,

I just noticed that the google map icon on his chest casts a shadow on his shirt, very nice touch. was that hard to draw?

Note from Scott: Funny you should ask. I just spent several hours of my life fixing every Omnipresent Man logo inh my 3rd book so they would print properly. So the answer is that they're easy to draw, but hard to draw right.

I use bulletproof deodorant.

Wouldn't Omnipresent man's weakness be that since he is everywhere that he is susceptible to any attack?

No Rocket Hat?

Wait, Rocket Hat doesn't *have* a weakness.

Yep, always. If he didn't do that then you wouldn't be able to see him, you wouldn't be able to move, you'd have a hard time chewing since you'd be eating him, too, etc.

So, his power isn't omnipresence so much as it's the ability to coagulate in a manner comprehensible to human perception.

that would mean giving up his super powers.

but he wouldn't have to travel to the Fortress of Solitude because he's already there!

Hey Scott, not trying to abuse your comments page but I wanted to get thru to you quickly. This month is Movember, a month where Growing a Mo can raise support and awareness for prostate cancer & depression. If you google Movember it'll take you to the home page where u can donate ( I'm on the Australian site under Brendan Doolan) I just thought maybe mullet boss could use his mo for the power of good and raise awareness for these worthwhile causes. If you're not interested that's cool, just letting you know :D

Note from Scott: Thanks for the Heads up! If I can think of a way to make it funny I'll do a strip about it.

I LLOL'd (literally laughed out loud) at each panel. Some, more than once. It's now officially a great day.

I wondered as well about Rocket Hat, then read this: "Wait, Rocket Hat doesn't *have* a weakness."

Ah, yes, indeed.

I would have thought his one weakness would be going to the bathroom. Everywhere at the same time.

Can't keep many friends if you are constantly peeing on them.

This is officially my favorite Omnipresent Man strip.

November 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKaa

Why would he need to go to the bathroom? His waste products are already in the sewer.

That makes PERFECT sense! It's such a subtle power.

If I closed my eyes, and fired a machine gun in random directions, would at least one of the bullets hit Omnipresent Man or Mr. Everywhere?

November 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGregory Bogosian

WIN!

November 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPaula

The one flaw in this strip is that Omnipresent man would have been present when the human joke...ahem, "knifeketeer", discovered his weakness, and, therefore, wouldn't need to be told.

November 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterThe Chosen One

Just wear high-tops!

I love the Knifekateer costume.

3 Ricks....Rickrolling?

"Wouldn't Omnipresent man's weakness be that since he is everywhere that he is susceptible to any attack?"

No, it's established that he's not everywhere, he's everywhere else (or, everywhere where there is nothing else. So if an attack hit him, he would simply cease to be there but still be everywhere else.

Or something.

Omnipresent Man doesn't need to give driving directions. He's already sitting with you, in the passenger seat, navigating.

He's also on your lap.

November 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEsquadrille

@Esquadrille
"Hés also on your lap" Hilarious and disturbing.

Omnipresent man must make for fascinating sci-fi, and also endless continuity-logic headeaches. I would love to write a story with him, but couldn't bear all the criticism for the infinite possibilities/impossibilities. And all the creepyness of him being a witness of everyhing. Including what I'm doing now. Yes, he is creepy.

Worse.. everywhere man and omnipresent man are stuck... at every bieber concert, every single movie theater (playing bad movies), in every bedroom (your grandparents... and everyone elses), in at the end of every sewer where all the waste goes.... , not to mention all the dangerous/lethal locations... in volcanoes, 10,000 leagues under the sea, in front of every jet plane engine..... , inside every cement mixer.

I gotta say.. being everywhere or omnipresent sounds like it would suck. How are they still alive and sane?

November 12, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterxenapan

If he is everywhere, how is half of him not dead?
Also, this is the funniest one I have read yet.

January 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterG

How about a villain named Nowhere Man, as in the Beatles' song?
