Dr Tenma (Doctor Boyton in the English version) loses his son Tobio (Toby) in a tragic car accident. Astro is made as a perfect match in his son's memory. Tenma realizes he will never be human though and express emotion whereby he sadly abandons him.
Astro was eventually tricked into joining a robot circus where he met Kathy who gave him the name Astro Boy.
He was rescued by Professor Ochanomizu (Dr Elefun), the newly appointed head of the Ministry of Science and colleague of Dr Tenma. The good professor is shown to be quite caring to the robot, becoming his guardian and later builds him an entire robotic family including a dog named Jump.
After a long road, the young robot became a hero with 7 superpowers.
They include the strength of 100,000 horsepower, jet flight, laser eyes, super hearing, instant translation, hip machine gun, and a very high IQ to determine between good and evil. Which power would you use if you were ... Astro Boy.
