Bionic Man: Issue #1 (2011)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
11.03.11

Bionic Man: Issue #1 (2011) Based on a story by Kevin Smith

This first issue, which takes place in the present, begins with a bionic villain breaking into a top secret facility, slaughtering the guard and the scientists and destroying and stealing the bionic research. Then we're introduced to wise-cracking Oscar Goldman, who is waiting for Colonel Steve Austin to show up at a testing facility. He's going to be flying Oscar's new jet, which can go to Mach 8 and then glide for a period of time, rendering it invisible to radar. However, Austin, who is considered "The Elvis of Test Pilots", is habitually late. We see him leaving his house--and his fiance Jamie (Sommers, I presume). Oscar waits until Steve shows up but has to leave because of the break in at that facility. And then the plane's tank starts leaking and the last panel is him coming in for a crash landing, saying "She's breaking up! She's breaking up!".

This is an interesting enough update, from an unproduced script that Smith wrote over a decade ago, though they obviously didn't get the rights to make them look like the actors from the original television series, so their depictions are a bit different. And while it says this is based on The Universal Television series "The Six Million Dollar Man", no mention is given to the Martin Caiden novel that that was based on, CYBORG.

Script by Kevin Smith & Phil Hester

Pencils: Jonathan Lau
