CYBERNETIC BODY PARTS:
Steve Austin has high-tech prosthetic replacements for his left arm, both legs, his spinal column, and his right eye. The limbs are not as flexible as his original body parts, which accounts for his Typical Agility rating. Among the special abilities granted by his artificial organs are:
ENHANCED STRENGTH:
The machinery in his left arm and spine allows Austin to lift up to 1 ton.

HYPER-RUNNING:
Austin can run at Good speeds (60 m.p.h.) for extended periods; because his legs do not require oxygen, his endurance is greatly enhanced.

TELESCOPIC VISION:
Steve Austin's right eye can function as a telescope, at Feeble power. This means he can focus on targets up to 2 miles distant.

MICROSCOPIC VISION:
Steve Austin's right eye can function as a microscope, at Feeble power. This means that he can focus on something as small as a microfilm.

Piloting * Navigation * Engineering
Martial Arts A & B * Wrestling

Background:
Steve Austin was a physical and mental marvel. A star athlete in most sports, he displayed particular excellence in wrestling, fencing, boxing, acrobatics, judo, and aikido, holding black belts in the latter two. Intellectually, he was also above average, with a masters in aerodynamics and astronautical engineering. Rounding out his young adult experiences, he flew an army gunship in Vietnam, was shot down and badly injured, and transferred to the Air Force.

Joining the astronaut corps, he moved from the backup crew of Apollo XVII to the prime crew when the lunar module pilot broke his arm. The youngest man to walk on the moon, Austin returned to test piloting while waiting for reassignment in space on Skylab 11. Returning an M3F5 from a flight some 328,000 feet above the Mojave, he lost control and plowed into the landing strip.

His injuries were severe: left arm gone, one leg crushed and the other badly mangled, his left eye destroyed by debris. However, because of his suit, he had neither scorched his lungs nor significant areas of flesh. Thus, the bold decision was made to rebuild him bionically -- artificial parts replacing his destroyed tissue.

The operation was performed at Slab Rock, the government's bionics and cybernetics lab attached to the NORAD complex in Colorado. His spine was strengthened with vitallium and cerosium; his legs, arm, and eye were replaced with superior mechanical counterparts.

Austin is attached to the Office of Special Operations, where he reports to Oscar Goldman as needed for dangerous missions.
