When Officer Tom Wyatt's wife, Janice, was murdered he attempted to end his own life. Instead he found himself transported to a ship orbiting the Earth. He could not kill himself for he was the last of a family line that possessed the perfect genetic Imprint to receive the 'gift of power' and become a third holy man of Isht. In a painful ceremony, he was endowed with powers that transformed him into a superman. This gave him not only great powers, but a reason to live.
