Synopsis The Galactic Council of Planets is unwilling to admit Earth till its warlike ways are curbed. They appoint a boy from the pacifist planet Clifton as their Earth-based ambassador. Papi, a boy genius already enroled in the Galactic Peace Force, is able to use the Metaliser, a medalion-like device which gives its wearer all-purpose super-powers. After technical problems en route, his craft crash-lands on Earth. He is found by Riko-chan, the daughter of a farmer. He has amnesia. Speculators want to buy up the farmer's land for oil-prospecting. Soon Papi is using his super-powers to fight bad guys and put out an oilfield fire.
Review It could be described as a cross between Astro Boy and Wonder 3.
