Astro Boy classic

Astro Boy (Tetsuwan Atomu; "Mighty Atom" in Japanese versions) is the robot boy fashioned after Tobio Tenma (Astor Boynton III in the B/W American translation) by his father, the head of the Institute of Science in the year 2000. Aside from possessing the strength of 100,000 horsepower (later 1,000,000, though these numbers often fluctuate between stories) and the kind personality of a child, he has what are called his "seven amazing powers": jet-powered flight, multilingualism, analytical skills, headlight eyes, super-sensitive hearing, hidden weapons in his back, and the ability to tell if a person is good or evil. In addition, he has a built-in geiger counter and shortwave communication system.
