A scientist who goes by the name of Peyton Westlake has made a miraculous discovery. He has managed to produce a synthetic skin that can change the lives of countless people. This synthetic skin will be able to possibly revolutionize the process of skin grafting. However, the synthetic skin has the problem of falling apart within 100 minutes of being exposed to any light. After a group of gangsters attacks him, Peyton is horribly burnt, leaving the gangsters to assume that he is deceased. Peyton then takes on the alias of The Darkman. He uses his synthetic skin technology to be able to take on the appearance of any person that he desires. The only problem is that this only lasts for 100 minutes, but he intends to make it worth his while in order to take revenge on those who harmed him.
