How to Introduce a "New" Superhero

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?

Brilliant Scott!

Aww, a superhero comic WITHOUT Rocket Hat? Blasphemy!

Still excellent, though.

February 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterOz

Awesome again. Thanks for mentioning Christchurch.

February 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTheo

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...

February 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

"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!

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRadikalskippy

I wonder what their team-up power would be...

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMortengreen

last panel is gold

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterYaz

One of your best yet!\

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMark

Hahaha!! His little knickers are hilarious!!!!

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAngela

Another omnipresent-type-person? This was a questionable concept.. until panel 4.

This is sort of like when Daredevil met Elektra.

Although, I'm not sure who would be DD!


February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWally

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?

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterClassic Steve

Who's the third guy in panel 2?

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterflabajaba

Dude, it's like S. Meyer goes matrix.

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarlos Castillo

Xzex, I wanna see those characters, now. :)

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGary

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!

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAC


February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMe

I'm guessing Mister Everywhere was "apparently killed" in the mighty Marvel manner at the end of the story arc...

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterShadeTail

Heh! Omnipresent Man "Needs his privacy" !!! Heheheheh...

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFrnk

God those are sexy superhero briefs. I may throw up a little in my mouth.... LOLOL!

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJen

Another super hero! Bet this character doesn't like breakfast either (sorry, one-sided inside joke between a stalker & a webcomic author)

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBrent Kobayashi

From someone in Christchurch - thanks! Your comics always make me laugh, and theres not much to laugh about here at the moment.

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterClaire

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.

February 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMP

@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

February 27, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterimho

WOW, you've outdone yourself. I haven't laughed so hard in a very, very long time. :)

February 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPaula

As a New Zealand reader, its nice to see that there are thoughts for christchurch from other parts of the world

February 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNathan

This is you're masterpiece Scott Meyer, pure genius!

March 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMe

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.
