Professeur Simon - Simon Wright

Captain Future's best friend is a deceased professor: Simon Wright. Deceased ? His body maybe, but his brain was inserted into a floating robot of some sort that helped our captain in all his adventures. He really was, the "thinking bot". Japanese toymaker Popy did a nice job, especially with the light function inside the toys "transparent rubber" brain... The lazer gun from Mars attacks would take this concept again decades later.

Yes, my brain can light up !

Glowing brain ! Yes ! How cool is that ?
