When Colonel Steve Austin, a highly skilled test-pilot and astronaut in the U.S. military, crashes and is close to death, the government decides that he is too skilled a pilot for them to lose, and they don't want to let him die. They decide to use experimental, advanced technology to rebuild Col. Austin with cybernetic and nuclear-powered implants, arms, legs, and one false but powerful eye, all of which give him superhuman strength, speed, and abilities. He lives to become a man of many talents, from an invincible spy to a secret agent to a military operative and super soldier, all in the name of protecting the United States and fighting unfairness and injustice.
