Type of Hero Artificial Intelligence


Astro Boy is the main protagonist of the 1960s Japanese TV series and the 2009 film adaptation.


Astro Boy was created as a tribute to Astor Boynton, a boy who died in a car accident. His grieving scientist father spent millions of dollars to create a robot in Astor's likeness. The robot, given the name "Astro Boy", had a heart of gold, a genius mind, very advanced robotic weaponry, and the innocence of a child. The scientist raised Astro Boy as his own son until several years went by and he noticed that Astro Boy had not grown at all since his creation. Disgraced by the robot's inability to grow, he threw Astro Boy out into the streets. Eventually, Astro Boy was adopted by another scientist who, also, treated Astro Boy like a son. Astro Boy sought to use his unique, robotic powers to protect the human race.
