I know things are tough everywhere these days, but they're particularly tough in Christchurch, New Zealand this week. If you can help out at all, please contact the Red Cross. Thanks.
Did the Knifeketeer go win a game of bridge too?
Aww, a superhero comic WITHOUT Rocket Hat? Blasphemy!
Still excellent, though.
Awesome again. Thanks for mentioning Christchurch.
Yes. Yes! YES!
I love almost all of your comics, but this one had me laughing like an idiot at every single panel. Must be the comic book nerd in me...
"Ask Captain Marvel".GENIUS. I love this comic so much.
If Omnipresent Man and Mister Everywhere have the identical power to be everywhere at once they must occupy the same space. If they are truly distinct, this means they must be made of elementary bosons, such as photons. From now on, when I see Omnipresent Man, I must remember to imagine him glowing.
But Wait! you forgot Superposition Girl (she's the voice in all women's heads that tell them what their boyfriends are doing at every moment), Quantum Larry (who can be in all places at once, but not while you're looking at him), and Astrophysics Phil, the long lost cousin to Stephen Hawking who was born from a Cosmic Ray impregnating Superposition Girl.
Many thanks, Scott, for the shout out. I've been enjoying your work as a fan since I was back home in NZ, and continue to do so here in the States. Things are tough, but Kiwis are a resilient bunch - we'll pull through with the support of the international community, for which we are very thankful.
Not only does Mister Everywhere bring nothing new to the table, he's got probably the WORST costume for a superhero! Yikes! Omnipresent Man should junkpunch him!
That is absolutely fantastic.
I've been playing Marvel Vs Capcom 3 a lot lately, and having Wolverine, X-23 and Deadpool on the same game is a bit boring sometimes, even if they are totally different. But let's face it: They have essencially the same power and that makes them dull. This comic is pure gold. Congratulations!
I wonder what their team-up power would be...
last panel is gold
One of your best yet!\
Hahaha!! His little knickers are hilarious!!!!
Another omnipresent-type-person? This was a questionable concept.. until panel 4.
THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!
This is sort of like when Daredevil met Elektra.
Although, I'm not sure who would be DD!
What's the symbol on Mr. Everywhere's shirt? Another "You are here" marker for a competing Net service?
And wouldn't he be looking at Omnipresent Man from more than two angles?
Who's the third guy in panel 2?
Dude, it's like S. Meyer goes matrix.
Xzex, I wanna see those characters, now. :)
You really are trying to drive the logical, pragmatic, obsessive thinkings into the insane asylum, right? Well, at least we are laughing on the way!
I'm guessing Mister Everywhere was "apparently killed" in the mighty Marvel manner at the end of the story arc...
Heh! Omnipresent Man "Needs his privacy" !!! Heheheheh...
God those are sexy superhero briefs. I may throw up a little in my mouth.... LOLOL!
Another super hero! Bet this character doesn't like breakfast either (sorry, one-sided inside joke between a stalker & a webcomic author)
From someone in Christchurch - thanks! Your comics always make me laugh, and theres not much to laugh about here at the moment.
Wow. Comics like this are the reason I'll buy any books you publish, even though I've seen it all on your website before.
@Classic Steve: He doesn't say he's looking at him from 'only' two angles, looking at him from 10^17 angles would include looking at him from 2 angles ; )
Another great Omnipresent Man comic, but my favorite is still "How to Write a Superhero Story" :D
WOW, you've outdone yourself. I haven't laughed so hard in a very, very long time. :)
As a New Zealand reader, its nice to see that there are thoughts for christchurch from other parts of the world
This is you're masterpiece Scott Meyer, pure genius!
Hello from Christchurch! Got power back today, wouldn't mind some running water through. Still, we're doing well considering. Thanks for yet another reason to return to the internet.
Superman actually came before Captain Marvel, DC successfully sued the publishers of Captain Marvel for copyright infringement because of that.
