Summary
In a near future. Detroit has slowly become the center of criminal activity when a gang who likes to kill cops goes on the rise. Omni Consomer Products eventually seizes control of local law enforcement. Just assigned to the Metro West Precint is Officer Alex Murphy. Alex is massacred by the gang, as his partner Anne Lewis is barely able to do nothing. At the same time, a young visionary executive, Bob Morton, seizes his chance when the ED-209 law enforcement droid shows multiple problems as the perfect cop. The near death Murphy is used as the subject of a new droid. With his memories erased, he is resurrected as RoboCop, the future of law enforcement. As he sweeps away crime, he eventually becomes involved with the Cop Killing Gang, and Anne Lewis herself. All of this triggers his dormant memories of his past life and he searches for who he really is. Along the way, he uncovers a conspiracy going deep in OCP
