After an illegal experiment explodes by a lightning strike in Sanders, Kansas, Alice Krouger breathes in the lethal mist that it caused and passes it to her unborn son, causing him to start rapidly growing immediately. She is killed during his birth due to the size of her son at the time. The son survives and starts growing exponentially with heightened strength, hearing, and the ability to use almost 100% of his brain. When a doctor and his wife adopt him, they suddenly realize his illness and return him to the orphanage, where he is secretly kept in a locked room and tutored by a professional while growing up. The evil mastermind of the experiment is wanting to erase any and all evidence linking him to his experiment, which he does. However, after learning that a boy was born with the serum inside him, he sends his goons out to find and kill him, along with anyone who stands in his way. Will the boy ever have a life free from pursuit, and will a cure ever be found to stop the rapid aging caused by the experiment?
