Synopsis: WALL-E, which is short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class, has been left alone on Earth for hundreds of years collecting things. One day he meets a robot named EVE that is searching and comes to find that WALL-E may have accidentally found the key to the future of the planet. EVE heads back to report what she has found to humans who want to know if it is safe to return. But, WALL-E tags along and puts in motion a comic rollercoaster ride of an adventure.

He trains to avenge his father’s death after learning how to use his powers that have laid dormant his whole life. As he begins to learn, he develops quick reflexes and unbelievable agility. He also finds that the group lives by an unbreakable code. He really starts to enjoy his newfound power, but comes to learn that there is more under the surface of the organization.
