Astro Boy is a robotic boy and superhero from the manga and animated series of the same name.

OriginEdit

Created by the scientist Dr. Tenma to replace the son he lost, Astro proved to be a disappointment to his creator, but was adopted by Professor Ochanomizu, who inspired him to use his powers to help others.

BiographyEdit

Astro Boy was created by the scientist Dr. Tenma (Dr. Boynton in the English translation) in an attempt to resurrect his dead son Tobio (Toby in some English translation) in the form of a robot. However, when Tenma finally succeeded in creating his son as a robot, he became disappointed in it that it wasn't truly his son and sold him to an unscrupulous circus owner Hamegg (AKA The Great Cacciatore). Eventually Astro is discovered by Professor Ochanomizu (referred to as Dr. Elefun, Prof. Peabody, and Dr. O'Shay in various English translations) while Astro was performing and amazed by his abilities convinces Hamegg to give Astro over to him.

From then on, Professor Ochanomizu became a legal guardian for Astro and for the first time Astro was treated with kindness and warmth. It isn't long before Ochanomizu becomes aware of the full scope of his powers and abilities and that Astro is capable of feeling emotion. Astro soon after decided to use his powers to benefit mankind and help people. Eventually, a robotic family was created for Astro, including a mother, father, brother, and sister.

Soon, Astro Boy became the world's greatest hero, fighting rogue robots, alien threats and helping those in need.

PowersEdit

Astro Boy was built with a multitude of superpowers with a number of tools and weapons built into his body.
