Astro is a gatekeeper of the universe's secrets, wisdom, science, and magic. The Amanita muscaria mushrooms is ancient technology that is eons old and landed on earth billions years ago. Earth is the only location in the universe that contains this specific technology. The mushroom is used as a tool to help Astro fight evil and travel through dimensions of the multiverse. Astro uses the technology to power up to super mode allowing him to access his full abilities and become "Super Astro". When Astro is in super mode he is able to open up portals to cross realms of the universe in an instant, unlocking all of his mystical power to defend earth from lower vibrational monsters like energy vampires that prey on the world's fears.
