In 1968 the U.S governmentís Captain Atom Project conducted an experiment to test a virtually indestructible alloy found by the Air Force on an unidentified flying object. Air Force Captain Nathaniel Adam was encapsulated within the alien alloy and exposed to the detonation of a nuclear bomb. Adam was apparently blasted to atoms.
The next year the government tried again with itís Major Force Project. This time the test subject Sgt. Clifford Zmeck, a certified psychopath, court-marshalled by the Air Force. He was sentenced to life imprisonment for the killing of the mother of Lieutenant Martin Allard and hoped to earn a pardon by participating in the project. Zmeck was shielded by double the amount of alien alloy that had been used in the on Captain Adam. A hydrogen bomb was detonated beneath Zmeck, and he too was apparently reduced to atoms.
In truth the force of the explosion had catapulted him into the quantum field and shot him decades forward in time. Zmeck re-entered the time stream and found that the alien metal was now fused to his body, giving him superhuman powers. General Wade Eiling (head of Project Atom) recruited Zmeck as a new operative. Zmeck was spirited to an Air Force base where scientists implanted remote-control devices under his skin that could keep in line by releasing a nerve gas or exploding on command. Technicians laser-etched his alloy coating into a "costume," and he was given the code name Major Force.
