    I think the robot didn’t look “evil” enough. Maybe wicked looking cutting things and spikes in addition to the ’bots other armorment.

    It must have done better than Dr Mel’s spacesuit.

    Not much of a competition if , by the look of it, the town (and earth) is still standing when it ends.

    Evil scientists making robots is so 20th century. It’s all about AI now.

    I like how Lio’s dad sees his son leaving with a robot and just thinks “He’s having fun, that’s what matters.”

    Lio’s dad is one of the best. He might encourage Lio to try out some more traditional things like sports but he won’t force him to play. Probably cuz he knows about the jetpacks.

    Lio set his sights a little too high.

    Maybe next time you should remind your your robot NOT to set one of the judges’ beard on fire with its death ray!

    They didn’t think his molesting robot was evil enough. >

    Maybe if it had hands it would have been better received. Even two-fingered pincers would make it more capable of evil.

    My sympathies. I remember getting an “honorable mention” for one of my Science Fair projects.

    Probably because you didn’t use the robot to get rid of the competition.

    It’s more of an engineering project. I’m not surprised.

    Why the mirror headband? And it seems like he should’ve been carrying the flag in the first panel – I don’t think it would’ve messed up the joke that much…
