Description
Orphaned American teen Joseph Carter Jones, Joey, lives with his grandmother in Center City, California. When he is not in class you can generally find the youth working diligently at a diner to help things meet at home. Joey's a bit scrawny for his age. He's not athletic or much of a bookworm. Actually he doesn't fit in anywhere, but he's got a set of friends and a few hobbies that help him cope when not busy at work.

Upon hearing of a new toy robot called the Heybo, Joey becomes set on believing that acquiring said gadget will turn his life for the better. Like many impressionable teens, Joey thinks material goods can bring him good fortune, and given his life situation he could really use some luck. Unfortunately, he cannot afford to buy the machine on his meager salary.

His luck changes when he picks up a broken down Heybo abandoned by a school bully. Said bully is a member of the football team and was picking on Joey because the runt was hanging out with his friend and lead cheerleader Lina. In Joey's eyes this used bot could be a source of strength. It could turn him into a hero for Lina and his school...if he could make it work. So he tries to fix the toy, and eventually names it Heroman. Initially his effort seems to go to waste as the bot refuses to function, but when Heroman gets struck by a bolt of lightning, it transforms into a giant robot.... Just in time to save his friend Lina from impending danger.

I like the designs except the hero boy looks too girly. that aside I have some mixed feelings with something taking place in the United States without it being mindful of comic and cartoon conventions. They definitely talk from a Japanese situation.

It also has an old school feel to it and I like stories like these. A power item lands on a poor kids hands and he uses the power of determination or something.

the first chapter seems really weird though, a samurai spirit that doesn't fit the rest of the story is the villain. It should have been an early scout of the aliens.

Another manga created by Stan Lee, right after Ultimo, Heroman is quite a different manga than I expected from.

Although it is the first chapter, it had quite a strong plot and a great cast, and so far, quite promising.

I can't quite tell how long it will be, but I'm looking forward to more chapters in the future.
