Steve Austin happens by chance to reunite with, Jamie Sommers, his childhood love who is now a tennis pro. Their relationship is renewed and things look bright for the both of them. However, that soon changes when the pair go skydiving and Jamie suffers a serious accident that permanently cripples most of her limbs and an ear. Desperately, Steve Austin begs his boss, Oscar Goldman, to equip Jamie with the same bionic implants he himself received. Goldman agrees and has Jamie outfitted with two legs, a right arm and an artificial ear. Now Jamie must come to terms with the fact she not can function normally, but the implants also give her incredible strength and speed while her ear can detect nearly any sound regardless of distance, volume or frequency. Unfortunately, there are unforseen consequences as well to this boon that place her in the kind of danger from which there seems to be no escape. Written by
