  1. “Ugh! Damn it. I thought he would think I was a robot. I even wore a green tunic like Dr. Doom, and he’s a robot….back to the old drawing board.”

  2. He must have been worried about breaking their widdle jaws.

  3. Just a thought, but robots in general, don’t wear gas masks. Because, of course, robots don’t need to breathe.

  4. He could of been a cylon…

  5. Just a thought here, but how does the diving helmet (its an early form of diving apparatus NOT a gas mask by the way) go flying from a roundhouse punch such as the guy wearing the goggles is clearly doing? I mean, I could see a uppercut MAYBE working, but there is NO WAY WHATSOEVER a roundhouse punch can dislodge a fully enclosed metal helmet. But perhaps since the guy wearing the helmet in question is leaning backwards, perhaps the motion slung the helmet off. But, to do this, he would have to go backwards very quickly and end up at an angle past horizontal…Oops, forgot this was a comic. 🙂

  6. I wonder what happened when he punched a robot the first time, as he is not keen to punch any more robots? Hmm…

  7. Oh, I missed something. The helmet is going upwards off his head not backwards. A roundhouse punch would not do that under any circumstances. This panel does not obey the laws of physics in relation to the effectivity of roundhouse punches towards helmets. Well, it is a comic so it gets a little leeway there, but still…
