Original Run: January 1, 1973 to September 24, 1973
The series follows Koichi, a Japanese schoolboy, who learns that he is
the reincarnation of the alien entity, Babel. As such, Koichi is
entrusted with Babel's powers and joined by three protectors: Rodem, a
shape-shifting black panther; Ropross, a pterodactyl-like flying
creature; and Poseidon, a giant robot that always rises from the depth
of the ocean when summoned. The boy hero commands his newfound powers
and companions in order to defend the Earth.
The main character's
real name is Koichi Yamano. (His family name differs by version,
including Furumi, Yamano, and Kamiya.) Koichi lives an ordinary junior
high schooler's life, until one day when the computer of the Tower of
Babel authorizes him as a master of the tower. Koichi is actually a
distant descendant of the space alien Babel, who was cast ashore on
Earth 5000 years ago and who tricked the people of Earth into building
the legendary tower to signal to his friends where he had landed, only
for one of the tower's computers to malfunction and explode, destroying
the entire structure. Koichi inherits Babel's superhuman intellect,
physical strength and other various supernatural powers.
