Introduction

The character of Astro Boy was first created by the legendary Mangaka Osamu Tezuka all the way back in the early 1950's. Since then, he's been featured in a number of sequels, reboots, and spin-offs of his original, self-titled series and his story was even adapted into a feature length film back in 2009. In the universe, Astro's origins are quite complex and very tragic; when Tobio Tenma, the son of the brilliant robotics engineer Umataro Tenma, met an untimely demise, the good doctor created a robot in his son's image. Astro was the result, and while initially proud of his creation, Dr. Tenma came to hate Astro after he realized that he could never fully replace his son. Tenma sold Astro to a robotic circus - where he likely would have stayed if Hiroshi Ochanomizu didn't adopt the bot and teach him to use his powers for good.
