Dr Tenma is a brilliant scientist working in the airborne community of Metro City under militaristic President Stone. He is devoted to his son Toby, a chip off the old block, who dies in freakish circumstances during a demonstration of a volatile dark power source called the Red Core. Consumed by grief, Tenma resolves to replace his son with a robot clone, which will look, sound and behave like Toby. Thus, Astro Boy is born.
