Thomas J. Roberts, or as hes more commonly referred, Long Tom Roberts, is one of Doc's assistants and a member of "The Fabulous Five".

In the 1975 movie, Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze, Long Tom is played by Paul Gleason.

The character is presented as an electrical engineer, holding the military rank of Major, and a pilot.

He and Doc Savage first met while he was serving in World War I. The explanation of his nickname is given as a result of an event during the war where he helped defend a small European village using an ancient cannon known as a "Long Tom".

In The Man of Bronze he is described as "the physical weakling of the crowd, thin, not very tall, and with a none-too-healthy-appearing skin".
