Astronaut Jack North is hit by mysterious solar radiation while photographing an eclipse during a spacewalk. Returned to Earth, scientists find that as long as his eyes are exposed to the ultraviolet in sunlight, his mental and physical abilities are boosted to superhuman levels. More than a few minutes of exposure risks overload and death, so he needs to wear special sunglasses. Wearing the glasses or at night, he's a normal human. But in sunlight, he can think like a computer, recall everything, has super-senses and super-strength and can run as fast as a motorcycle. North uses his newfound abilities to investigate the murder of his best friend and fellow astronaut. Written by
Greg Evigan plays an astronaut that while using a state of the art stellar scanner recieves a dose of radiation through the device. Eventually when he gets back to Earth, he comes to the painful realization that UV radiation can burn out his brain thus killing him, but other than that he is superhuman, as the radiation has enhanced his body as well as his IQ. Not really great as a pilot film but enough to keep the kiddies munching popcorn while they watch.
