Magnus is the main character of the comic book series Magnus, Robot Fighter which was published by several companies including Gold Key and Valiant.


Raised by an old robot named 1A, Magnus learned to fight to protect humans from a totaltarian robot society with super strength and unique martial arts skills that can rend metal.


Magnus was born in North Am, a super-city that encompasses the entirety of the North American continent, and his parents remain unknown.  He was found by a very old robot named 1A, who raised the child.  With North Am under the control of an AI dictator named H8, 1A decided to train the young boy, who he named Magnus, to be able to do battle with robots.  One such technique included a fighting technique that allows him to break metal with his bare hands.  A1 also provided Magnus with a special device that allowed him to hear robot-to-robot communication, giving him an edge in information gathering.  As a result, Magnus fought both evil robots who would enslave humans and humans who would use robots for evil.
