For those who don’t already have it playing in their heads…
But wouldn’t an omniscient being would be able to see every possible future? Then they could be omnipotent in that they could choose exactly which future occurs. Not to mention jump between parallel universes, reverse time, etc.
But they still couldn’t make a burrito so hot that even they couldn’t eat it.
God-Man bears a striking resemblance to Santa Claus.
You know, I can’t remember ever seeing them in the same place at the same time…
Can’t possibly be true. One of them wears glasses.
An entity can be omniscient, omnipotent, and apathetic.
God-Man is Santa Claus?
Death may be your Santa Claus. Listen up:
It’s been a long time since I heard that particular Christmas classic!
Best… Superhero… comix… ever!
Christ, what an asshole
Gonna have “Particle Man” by They Might Be Giants in my head all afternoon now.
thanks for the ear-worm
Me too! “triangle man hates person man, they have a fight, triangle wins”
But… Universe man is usually kind to smaller man!
Universe Man does not represent the Christian God. Triangle Man, representative of a wide variety of trinities, including that of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, embodies that concept.
TMBG aren’t talking.
that makes three of us!
That’s God-man’s catchphrase!
You, sir, are, as the youngsters say, made of win.
How does he wear a backpack with a cape?
The same way I fit a back-pack under my rain parka in the winter. Wait a minute… maybe I am Human(,) Man!
that is just not fair at all.. err, will there be a devil-man? i wonder
Yes, but unfortunately the “Devil-Man” doesn’t look like Nagai’s character. But rather, the traditional, suave & debonair image of the devil.
err, will there be a devil-man? i wonder
See #5 on the God-Man Fan Page!
I got all excited when I saw your link and then I found that many of the older items were kaput. :(
Yeah, unfortunately it looks like a lot of the links on the God-Man Fan Page are dead, although some of the links (like #3, #4, and #5) still work. If you really want to invest some effort you can copy the URLs of the links and enter them into archive.org, a lot are still available there like The Threat of the Purple Beetle, God Man in…Die High!, The Menace of Ooze, etc…
I’d just like to point out that an entity can not be both omniscient and omnipotent at the same time. If said entity knows what is to come, then he/she/it is powerless to change it or to “un-know” it.
God Man is a jerk
Just wondering which colors Hiob-Man would wear…
Good news everyone! I emailed the creator of the God-Man Fan Page about all the dead links, and he updated them with new links from archive.org or gocomics.com, so now all of God-Man’s old adventures can be read there (except for strip #2, but since I’m a slightly OCD completist I did some searching for it, and according to this page #2 was rerun five years later as “Double Danger” which is #24 on the list)
Also, +1 to curiousrobot, re: markbellis, re: retrac13.
