Amos Burton is an Earther mechanic on the Canterbury. When the Cant responds to a distress beacon, Amos is one of a handful of crew members who survives an unprovoked attack from an unknown enemy.


Amos is a morally dubious character, and much fan discussion surrounds his motivations and mysterious backstory, which has yet to be revealed in the show. Some fans view Amos as a possible sociopath, while others believe his actions are as a result of a tragic childhood or possibly hint at Amos been a autistic character.

Amos Burton Appreciation Week was organised by fans on Tumblr and took place 24 July to 30 July 2017. In keeping with this fandoms norms, prompts revolved around discussions and meta posts, rather than creating fanworks.

A very number of fanworks have been crossovers with the CW's Legends of Tomorrow, and focus on Amos interacting with Mick Rory and the other Legends. These works don't include crossover pairings, and instead focus on the brotp relationship Mick and Amos could have.
