The last line was perfect.

I've also experienced childbirth from inside the birth canal, and I have no desire to repeat the process either.

Thank you for another amusing comic. :)

So, if they are everywhere, why aren't they suffocating in outer space? Maybe its restricted to this planet only?

"no such superhero exists or ever will"? either a very clear statement that you wouldn't care to write God as a superhero in Basic Instructions, or a galling implication that you think you ARE God?

I have to admit I'm a little surprised that Mr. Everywhere is sticking around.

How could have Omni present man witness birth from inside a birth canal if he's not everywhere but everywhere else because two things cannot occupy the same space I call shinanigens!

I suspect there was a Watchmen reference in panel 2...

Man, I love when the comics actually make me laugh for a few minutes straight. Omnipresent Man is still my all time favorite creation of yours!

I must say that Ri- I mean Mr. Everywhere looks exceptionally dashing in cat-eye glasses.

this was really good until the last line, then it was awesome.

Nice! Was that Scott Adam? (he looks like how I imagine him at least)

Pooping has got to be awkward for those guys.

It's nice to see Bob Saget's getting work.

We were just commiserating the fact that no superhero movies were coming out this weekend, and Mr Meyer steps up and fills the gap! Huzzah!

Why does Everywhere Man have Horn-Rimmed Glasses? They are most noticable in frame four.

"No such superhero exists, or ever will!"

Someone's never heard of Dr. Manhattan... =)

Love the comic, Scott. Keep up the great work.

This is my attempt at dealing with a similar problem:
Waterfall Evolution

Crap! Josh beat me to the Bob Saget joke!

Was I the only one expecting this to be about Rocket Hat?

August 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHyphen de Plume

Wonderful, as always! :-)

@TheThinker With Dr. Manhattan history before the man he used to be was born never came up in his development; if it had his development would have taken up most of the mini series.

I wonder if people missed the point of panel 2--if a hero existed "everywhen", then Omnipresent man would be able to see him. If there's no "everywhen" man right now, then there cannot be an "everywhen" man, because he's not here right now, and, ergo, the best he could be is "everywhen-except-for-right-now" man, which isn't quite the same at all.

Note from Scott: That's a good point, but really the point of panel two is that I have enough problems writing for two superheros who are everywhere, one who sees everything, one who never speaks and does everything off-screen, and one who longs to stab people, but has to come off as a good-natured idiot, not a psycho. I don't need to add a guy who is everywhen to the mix.

I like the idea of a "everywhen-except-for-right-now-man". A superhero that exists in the entirity of both the future and the past, but never the present.

@Chrono180 In space, they WOULD be suffocating from lack of oxygen.
However, at the same time they're in the planet Earth's atmosphere, thus getting the oxygen they need.
Dilemma solved.
