"Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first Bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better . . . stronger . . . faster."
Steve Austin was an astronaut and NASA pilot before a catastrophic accident left him barely alive. With much of his body destroyed, Austin was 'reconstructed' for the government by Dr. Rudy Wells. Using the most advanced medical technology, Austin was given cybernetic replicas of his left eye, right arm and both legs that gave him extraordinary physical powers for a cost of $6 million. Working for the O.S.I (Office of Strategic Intelligence), a shadowy CIA-type government agency, Austin was deployed on many missions where he frequently broke chains, ripped open doors, battered his way through walls and ran at speeds of up to 60 MPH.
