Do 'Moon Emperor invasions' not count as crime to the Knifeketeer?
If you think about it isn't all law-enforcement fighting crime with more crime? When the authorities see a criminal they hold the criminal at gun point, then abduct the criminal and trap them somewhere where the criminal will be raped. Stabbing criminals seems relatively humane.
Wait!! Alternative universe Rick in panels 1 and 4 is wearing what appears to be a fancy dan shirt opened up halfway to the navel, AND a speedo-style marble sack. What's his super hero name? Offendus?
Panel 3 gold again!
I like Rocket Hat's bold, new stance. Nice seeing him unbound for a change.
Omg, is this the first time we've seen Rocket Hat not in shackles? He's still the strong, silent type, I see.
And why does Missy have a glow about her? Is she radioactive, or is that her halo of superiority?
"Nice seeing him unbound for a change."
Oh, so that's why he looks different! I thought maybe he got a haircut.
Take that, Knifeketeer!
I caught this on the GoComics site first and could have sworn it was a re-run, but evidently not.
Whenever Omnipresent Man is used, I can't help thinking that we ought to see nothing but images of him in the panel, with no visible gaps between them. Indeed, if he is truly, physically, everywhere, then there must be no room for anything else, and we must not exist. Unless he's dreaming us.
In response to sav's comment, I suspect that on the moon, anything the Moon Emperor does is legal, because he's the Moon Emperor. So, no, it probably doesn't count as crime. What Rocket Hat fights may be the legal authority of the state.
Wow Qwerty, that was both disturbing and accurate
Personally, I always thought that the Knifeketeer was more suited for the villainy side of the business anyway.
I would like to know more about the heroes' civilian identities. Their jobs, where they live.....especially Omnipresent Man and Mr. Everywhere. How could they change without everybody knowing? More importantly, how would you draw that?
I'm usually a panel 3 man, but panel 2 takes it today.
Omnipresent Man and Mr. Everywhere shifted location slightly between panel 1 and 4. It looks like Mr. Everywhere is standing on Omnipresent Man's foot. I suppose since they are both everywhere, they end up standing on each other's feet more often than not. That's why they don't even seem to notice.
@sav Most of the Moon Emporer's activities are just attempts to kill Rocket Hat. So Rocket Hat fights crime occasionally. However, he spends most of his time on self-defense.
"Moon Emperor invasions" are considered to be a form of impromptu sadomasochistic prop comedy by the general public.
@QwertyOffendous Stupendous! sleaziest superhero in town! fighting crime with bad pickup lines and greasy hair! I would pay to see that in the comic.
Honestly, I wouldn't consider fending off Moon Emperor's invasions "Fighting crime" so much as "Fighting a war". Remember that not all supervillains are criminals. Some of them are warlords, monsters, gods, and other assorted threats.
