Pirate Mike Fights Bullying!

A number of my ongoing battles with this strip can be seen here. (1) how short can I make a strip before it makes no sense? (2) Does Pirate Mike have a Bluto-like enemy? (3) How violent _is_ Pirate Mike? (4) If Mike is violent, what triggers him? Is it unfairness? Or is it his frustration at the limitations of his life? I’m guessing it’s both, though the frustrations of life are more his realm. (5) How many other “characters” are there in Mike’s world, if any? And even if I decide not to continue using other dressed up characters (Ninja Nancy, Astronaut Al), can I still Cowboy Bill? I mean, guys dress in cowboy gear far more often than in pirate gear!
