Walter was a sickeningly obsequious robo-servant from Mega-City One, the first robot ever to be granted his freedom (in return for helping defeat the insane robot Call-Me-Kenneth). However, Walter had no use for freedom; all he wanted was to serve his hero Judge Dredd, who duly took him on. He eventually left Dredd's service after being seriously damaged by Dredd's enemy Mean Angel. Walter set up his own business selling used robots, something Dredd considered morally dubious.
Still obsessed with Dredd, Walter eventually snapped and tried to kill him for his dismissive treatment over the years. He was sentenced to thirty years' imprisonment but was released during a robot revolution. Surrendering to Dredd in the aftermath, he was paroled and now lives with Mrs. Gunderson, former landlady of Judge Death.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Not a very good cook. He put a bedsock in Mrs Gunderson's omelette.
A readers' favourite, Walter once had his own intermittent series of short, comedic adventures entitled 'Walter the Wobot: Fwiend of Dwedd'.
Walter has rhotacism, a speech impediment which causes him to pwonounce 'R' as 'W'. He developed it after being afraid for his life when the Judges were hunting down and killing robots during Call-Me-Kenneth's robot rebellion. Interestingly, he also replaces Rs with Ws when he writes (see quotations).
