Alexander James Murphy, “RoboCop”
The dream is to rebuild Detroit—to demolish the languishing blight as we know it, and to replace it with a bustling utopia billed as Delta City. A desperate local government turns to a corporation to get the job done—a corporation that in turn funds a program to create an army of cyborg policemen. Alexander James Murphy (Peter Weller), a police force veteran who is tortured, mutilated and killed one evening by a local crime boss, becomes the prototype. He’s resurrected as the pioneer of Detroit’s elite new robotic army. Guided by three prime directives—serve the public trust, protect the innocent and uphold the law—and one classified fourth directive, RoboCop cleans up the streets with an iron fist.
