Doctor Derangemo continues to be a creation of Randall Malus.

The actual reason for the truck stopping is that the little robot is made out of a material that was initially developed out of a material that absorbed the kinetic energy of projectiles and stopped things like bullets and missiles in their tracks, using that energy to keep the larger things in their place until they could be disarmed. Unfortunately, it was quite expensive to develop and Derangemo got side-tracked by wanting to make a play-mate for one of his other robots. Hence the little robot has siphoned the energy Floyd has built up and is using it to keep the truck suspended in the air, allowing everyone to remain unharmed. Doing so on a larger scale would be almost impossible due to budgetary constraints, and expecting the little robot to be able to stop anything much larger than a truck would be iffy.

Anyway, that's my reasoning behind why today's comic works.

I'm sure it'll come into play again at a point where I have no idea how to solve a problem I've caused, only to realize that the problem was solved with this very comic.

Also, this was originally meant to be two comics, but it worked better as one. What will happen on Tuesday? I don't know yet.
