|~ Astro's outlook on protecting the innocent|
Astro Boy (known as Mighty Atom in the original Japanese release) is the protagonist of the series that bears his name. Born Tobio Tenma, Astro was created by a brilliant roboticist named Dr. Umataro Tenma to replace the original Tobio, who was killed in a car accident caused by the elder Tenma's own parental negligence.
To this end, Tenma equipped Astro with some of the most advanced technology in the world in order to prevent such a tragedy from happening again. Despite being nearly identical to the original Tobio, Tenma ultimately rejected the young robot after he realized that Astro's robotic limitations would prevent him from filling the void in his creator's heart. Later taken in by Dr. Ochanomizu, one of Tenma's former colleagues, Astro uses his incredible powers to fight evil and injustice wherever it springs up.
