While testing a new fuel aboard an experimental space craft, Col. Steve Austin experiences difficulties while preparing to land and is pulled off course to splash down near a remote island in the Pacific. There, he attempts to contact Oscar at OSI to inform him of his whereabouts, but when another government agent shows up and identifies himself as Oscar's replacement, the Colonel is shocked to learn that 6 years have supposedly passed, Oscar is dead and he has been declared a traitor after supposedly defecting to the Soviet Union.

Steve is indeed able to move objects with incredible force, but he can only push against things while standing on a solid surface, and in order to pull/hold things down, he'd need to be anchored in place. Even a bionic man cannot defy gravity, so even if Steve is incredibly strong, he would not be able to pull/hold down a helicopter just with his strength; he only weighs about 200 pounds, and so he would merely be lifted into the air along with the helicopter. He would need to have his feet physically anchored to the ground to use his bionic strength to prevent the helicopter from taking off. See more
