Plot in a Nutshell: a digruntled former OSI scientist threatens to wipe out everyone in an entire town unless he is paid $10 million dollars.
Bonus Video (as seen originally on The Bionic Wiki):
Story Summary: A motorcycle cop rolls into the small town (pop: 23) of Norris for a cup of coffee and sees this:
Everyone is dead. All 23 of them apparently left their homes, converged at this intersection, and then flopped over. As he looks around, he is suddenly overcome with extreme pain.
He falls to the ground, as dead as the others around him.
Oscar visits Steve and tells him their meeting has been cancelled because of the events in Norris. Steve, having grown up near Norris, jumps in his car and heads to the scene.
He arrives at the makeshift military base outside of town and dons a space suit in order to protect himself as he investigates the town. While suiting up, he flirts with Dr. Forbes. He tells her to call him "Steve" instead of "Mr. Austin" and looks her up and down.
Steve enters the town in his protective suit, and discovers that everyone is actually alive and well, they were merely unconscious.
No one remembers what happened, so Dr. Forbes uses narcosynthesis on Joe Taylor to try to bring his traumatic memories to the surface. Joe goes crazy and grabs a gun from an unsuspecting soldier. Steve leaps across the room and subdues the old man.
Outside the tent, the motorcycle officer calls Steve over and gives him a piece of information that allows Steve to deduce that the problem was caused by ultrasonic waves, which leads to a moth-balled experimental weapon created by Dr. Stanley Bacon. Our villain is discovered!
And Now a Word from our Sponsors
Moments later, a helicopter drops a bundle of notes on the base demanding $10 million dollars or this time a town of people really will be killed.
Oscar's superiors decline to make the payoff, not believing that bacon has the power supply to make his weapon work on a huge scale. Not detered, Steve orders up an armored car and drives it to the drop-off point, where he asks to be taken to Bacon. Bacon's henchmen knock Steve out for the trip.
While Steve is lying unconscious in Bacon's werehouse lab, Bacon notices that Steve has a pulse in only one arm, which leads him to discover that Steve is bionic. He asks Steve about his bionics and is surprised by every answer.
Jealous that Steve was built while his weapon was mothballed, he declares his intention to KILL OSCAR and everyone else at the base outside Norris and to reduce Steve to a six million dollar pile of junk.
Bacon sets out to implement his deadly plan after sticking Steve in a freezer that malfunctions his bionics.
Steve busts out and stumbles after Bacon, speeding up gradually as his bionics warm up. As bacon uses his machine to attack Oscar and the military at the Norris base, Steve pulls a metal pole from the ground and tosses it at the truck Bacon is in, utterly destroying it.
How Did You Do That Quote:
Dr. Forbes: "And thanks for saving my life, but would you mind telling me how you did it?"
Steve: "Did What?"
Dr. Forbes: "Jumped across the room like that."
Move your mouse over Steve to see his answer.
Final Thoughts: 3 Steves for the story, with an extra Steve for the awesome running scene at the end. This is why we love the Six Million Dollar Man.
