Given these complaints, the game director, Tony Huynh, already spoke about it and told the environment PC Gamer The following:
First of all, it is an alternative universe. The characters are extracted from everywhere. And also, if you understand the story of the iron giant, there are existing multiple. And it is a assembly line of different models. Having said that, the background history on the website is that he is learning from Superman, who is his idol. And the hero uses his powers to protect people. And our game is focused on cooperating and protecting your ally.
