The 2003 animated TV series is what I’m most familiar with. That’s the one that I was raised on as a 2000 born baby.

1. Astro Boy’s first appearance was in 1951 in Captain Atom in which he held a supporting role, before being given his own series.

2. Astro Boy originally started off fighting crime with seven powers: jet powered flight, analytical skills, multilingualism, super hearing, headlight eyes, hidden weapons in his back and the ability to tell if a person is good or evil. Since then though more powers have been added to his repertoire.
