Title text: My resonant tunneling diode phone has limited range but a short enough wavelength to penetrate even the densest cages. This gives me a major combat advantage, hopefully.
A Faraday cage is a cage of conducting material that interferes and blocks out electromagnetic radiation like cell phone signals (provided the material is of the appropriate thickness and the gaps between "bars" are significantly smaller than the wavelength of the radiation). A cage match is a form of wrestling in which the two participants are held in a hexagonal cage and left to fight each other. The comic caption is a play on the two terms, putting Cueball into a cage match in the faraday cage that is blocking his reception.
The title text is a play on a rule in cage matches that states that a participant wins if they can escape the cage. Tunneling diodes are capable of fast operation, allowing a device to generate high frequency signals, which are more capable of penetrating the mesh openings in a Faraday cage. The statement is one you might hear in a bad science fiction movie, since it includes a kernel of truth in a casserole of nonsense.
