History: Zachary T. Paleozogt's parents were murdered by the virtual killer 9-Jack-9 when he was a youth. Raised by the robotic butler Peabody (with input from Zachary's inventor uncle Max), the boy grew up not as a dark vigilante of the night, but as a bright, cheerful adventurer, dedicated to helping anyone in need. As Zot, he became his world's greatest and most beloved hero. While Zot's Earth was highly advanced, with space travel and robots, eventually he found his way to a much more mundane alternate Earth, when chasing a group of enemy robots. Befriending local girl Jenny Weaver, Zot now flits between his own fantastic world and Jenny's, finding her Earth much more exciting than his own utopian one.
