HistoryThe Astro-Men were aliens from the planet Astros a rogue planet that drifted through space. Seeking to inhabit a new world, their leader Saramin targeted the planet Earth in the year 1951. Bringing Astros into Earth's orbit they used blast cannons to blow off chunks of their own world to bombard the Earth with meteors.
The leaders of Earth got assistance from the Uranian hero known as Marvel Boy who helped most of the countries of Earth to build atomic cannons to blast the meteors out of the sky and later led a counter attack when the Astro-Men attempted to invade the Earth. In the aftermath the Astro-Men were captured along with their leader. When a communist nation began attacking the United States in the aftermath, Marvel Boy forces Saramin to bring him to Astros where they used the planets defences to devastate the attacking nation into submission.
With the battle over, Saramin changed his views after seeing the destruction caused to the Earth and he and his Astro-Men agreed to remain on Earth and help rebuild. Marvel Boy then returned to Uranus, destroying Astros along the way leaving the Astro-Men to forge a new life on Earth.
