History: Critically injured in an explosion in Vietnam, army medic David Boyd was frozen to save his life, in anticipation of a day when medical science would be sufficiently advanced to heal his injuries. Seventeen years later the unscrupulous Dr. Cross used David as a guinea pig in his classified government genetics program, Project Stepping Stone, creating the first of an intended army of "Next Men". Revived with superhuman powers in a world he no longer knows by a man he cannot trust, Boyd escaped, wandering the US while trying to avoid recapture by the Army and figure a way to prevent Stepping Stone from achieving its goals.
