->'''Baron Heinrich von Helsingard:''' Why must we always resort to brutalizing one another? Are we not men of SCIENCE?\\ '''Atomic Robo:''' I'm a robot and you're a brain in a jar. Is this a trick question? From the intro to the [[TabletopRPG RPG book]]:

-->-'''Intro to the ''Atomic Robo Roleplaying Game'' book'''

There are nine complete volumes as of 2015; plus every year on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Comic_Book_Day Free Comic Book Day]], a new short story is released. In addition to these, a parallel series called ''Real Science Adventures'' ran from 2012 to 2014, with each issue containing several new stories, either one-shots or multi-parters, involving either Robo, side-characters from the main comic, or other people from the setting. One series deals with The Sparrow, while another focuses on the two-fisted science adventures of Tesladyne's predecessors; UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla, Ehrie "Creator/HarryHoudini" Weisz, Charles Fort, HPLovecraft’s dad, George Westinghouse, Annie Oakley and Wong Kei-ying (father of UsefulNotes/WongFeiHung) - ''the Seven Centurions of Science.'' Which is ''exactly'' as awesome as it sounds.

* JerkassHasAPoint: For all of Majestic 12's extreme actions, its commander does point out that Big Science Inc. ''knew'' that the predicted Biomega outbreak was A) coming, and B) much worse than anyone else expected, and didn't bother to tell anyone else or otherwise try to get assistance.

The former commander of Big Science Inc. retorts by saying there was no ''point'' in telling anyone else, as they were the only group with the gear needed to deal with biomega in the first place.

From the intro to the Role Playing Game Book: "Y’know how you can watch a documentary about archaeology, and it’s a bunch of university professors and grad students carefully brushing dust from rocks? And then they learn something very important about pottery? Meanwhile Franchise/IndianaJones is also an archaeologist, but mostly he [[AdventurerArchaeologist runs around shooting bad guys and having car chases]]? "Now apply the Indiana Jones model to [[ScienceHero every other field of study]]. "That’s ''Atomic Robo.''"
