In the late 1980s, the U.S. government commissioned a project to create the perfect
soldier. A range of experiments was performed on a group of soldiers, including genetic
reconstruction which was made possible by a serum created by Dr. Emanuel Brown.
Despite the advancements made, the project was deemed a failure and the soldiers
were discharged, much to the chagrin of its leader, General James S. Lassiter. The

After years of experimentation, Dr. Brown and General Lassiter would eventually
part ways, both thinking that their efforts of perfecting the serum were fruitless.
It wouldn’t be until the birth of the general’s son that the effects of the serum would be

Realizing the potential of these children, the general gathered a group of renegade soldiers,
who shared his views of hatred toward the government, and formed an organization known
as STING. He hunted down and killed the soldiers of the original project and abducted their
children. He took them to a hidden compound so he could raise and train them to be
his superior army.
Dr. Brown foresaw the evil of the general’s ambitions. With the help of a small band of
Ascended children he called the Omega Nexus, he organized an escape that would
lead to the destruction of the STING compound and STING.
Now, STING has reassembled for the sole purpose of recollecting the Ascended
who are now extremely powerful adults scattered throughout the United States.
Unbeknownst to STING, the Omega Nexus is waiting…
