Clear weather on a beautiful summer day turns into a frighteningly huge storm.
Two lives are greatly affected; a washed up pro golfer and a National Guard pilot. They both are struck by lightning and suffer the same injuries and after effects. Bobby Thomas and Capt. Tony Burns each beat the odds and survive the deadly strike, but the storm super cell has created an electromagnetic pulse. It chemically and magnetically altered their bodies on the sub atomic level giving them a telekinetic power that enables both to move and control small objects.
A government agency, DARPA, wants to use their ‘gift’ for different reasons. Tony uncovers the plot and goes into hiding. Bobby wants to use his new found power to further a lost career, but a gambling debt catches up to him. Denied the fame and luxuries of her husband’s misspent youth, Sherry Thomas schemes to jump start her husband’s path to golfing stardom, at the same time eliminating his sordid past. Together, Tony and Bobby form an uneasy alliance. Their lives change as they combine attributes to defeat those trying to use them for their own sinister means. A runaway division of the Defense Department, unsuspecting doctors and scientists, corrupt lawyers, gamblers and murder face them each step of the way.
He took a pair of scissors and gingerly started to cut away the gauze wrap around Bobby’s head. He was surprised to see that some of the hair on top of his head was still smoldering. The flesh on top of his skull was blackened and formed into a perfect circle about the size of a silver dollar. The skin on his arm, left side and upper thigh all looked like the blood vessels had popped up to the surface. One of the interns remarked that it seemed like a bad case of sunburn.
Further examination revealed that Bobby’s left hand had all five fingernails discolored and the palm was covered with shards of what looked like a melted rubbery substance. It was sticky to the touch. His upper torso, neck and right arm appeared to be fine. As he moved down to the lower extremities, Carlson observed that the belt buckle was missing even though the belt was still through each loop. There was no zipper on the pants and the edges were burnt around the flap.
Strangely, the top of Bobby’s right thigh had a third degree burn. There was a gaping hole in the pant leg where the right pants pocket should have been. Moving on down the body, Carlson noted that both feet had been skillfully wrapped with gauze as well. To his surprise, when Dr. Carlson cut away the gauze on both feet, all the toe-nails were discolored and the bottoms of the feet were coated with the same rubbery substance…sticky to the touch, but only slightly burned. The shredded bands of his socks remained above his ankles.
The two paramedics were nearby and after both realized they missed the burn on Bobby’s thigh, one began to speak.
“Doc, we noticed that he was… still kind of 'sparking' when we got him… like static shocks from a rug. We were afraid to give him any oxygen."
