FOUR OF THE MOST
POWERFUL FIGHT
TO PROTECT A WORLD THAT DOESN'T
EVEN KNOW THEY EXIST.
THEY ARE... MUTANT X.
HIS NAME WAS
PETER HANSON.
HE WAS A NAVAL FIGHTER PILOT
IN A UNIT CALLED THE TOMCATS
IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR.
SO HE WASN'T YOUNG.
THAT'S WHAT HE LOOKED LIKE
WHEN WE FIRST SAW HIM.
WHAT IS IT?
COME ON -- THERE'S SOMETHING
YOU'RE NOT TELLING.
LEXA, WHAT DO YOU KNOW?
OKAY.
I HEARD A RUMOUR THAT BACK
DURING WORLD WAR II
THE MILITARY LED A SERIES OF
COVERT ANTI-AGING EXPERIMENTS.
AND ONCE THE DOMINION HEARD
ABOUT IT THEY SHUT IT DOWN.
AND...?
THAT'S IT.
THAT'S ALL I KNOW.
IT'S THE TRUTH.
HEY, WHAT'S WITH YOU?
I MEAN, YOU SEEM TO BE
TAKING THIS SO PERSONALLY.
IT IS.
MY GRANDFATHER WAS A
MEMBER OF THE TOMCATS UNIT.
REALLY?
YEAH.
THEY GAVE HIM THE
MEDAL OF HONOR
AFTER HE LED SEVEN ATTACKS
OFF MALAITA ISLAND.
HIS PLANE WAS HIT BY ENEMY
FIRE, BUT HE SURVIVED.
HE SPENT HALF THE NIGHT IN
SHARK-INFESTED WATERS
BEFORE HE MADE
IT TO SHORE.
HUH. WOW.
HE SOUNDS LIKE
QUITE THE WAR HERO.
YEAH, HE WAS...
OR IS.
SO NOW YOU KNOW
WHY I NEED ANSWERS.
YEAH.
WELL, I'LL SEE
WHAT I CAN DO.
THANK YOU.
UNTIL THEN, MAYBE IT'S TIME TO
CHECK IN WITH YOUR GRANDPA.
UH, MY GRANDPA AND PA HAD A
FALLING OUT WHEN I WAS YOUNGER.
I DON'T EVEN KNOW
WHERE TO START LOOKING.
WELL, MAYBE
IT'S TIME YOU TRIED.
ABSOLUTELY
REMARKABLE.
ALTHOUGH ALL OUTWARD PHYSICAL
SIGNS SEEM TO INDICATE
THAT THE SPECIMEN IS BETWEEN
80 AND 85 YEARS OF AGE,
HIS INTERNAL ORGANS ARE THOSE OF
A HEALTHY 30-YEAR-OLD MALE.
HOW'S THAT
POSSIBLE?
HOW CAN SOMEONE AGE FIFTY
YEARS WITHIN A FEW SECONDS?
I'M AFRAID I WON'T KNOW
MORE UNTIL I BIOPSY THE
TISSUE SAMPLES.
DOC, IS IT POSSIBLE TO
REVERSE THE AGING PROCESS
THROUGH GENETIC
MANIPULATION?
WELL, SO FAR, SCIENCE HAS
LOOKED FOR WAYS TO EXTEND LIFE
AS OPPOSED TO TRYING TO
RESET THE BIOLOGICAL CLOCK.
WHAT ARE WE TALKING
ABOUT HERE, DOC?
FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH?
NOT EXACTLY.
THE CATALYST USED TO SET BACK
HIS CLOCK IS ONLY TEMPORARY.
HE REPRESENTS A
WORK IN PROGRESS.
I GUESS WHOEVER'S
RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS
IS TRYING TO FIND A NEW WAY TO
SAY, "LIFE BEGINS AT EIGHTY."
HOW COULD YOU IDIOTS
HAVE LET HANSEN ESCAPE?
THIS MAN REPRESENTED
THE CULMINATION OF A
LIFETIME OF RESEARCH.
THERE WAS NO WAY OF
ANTICIPATING HOW QUICKLY
HIS CELLS WOULD REGENERATE.
HANSEN CAUGHT
OUR MEN OFF GUARD.
THE MAN WAS
COMBAT TRAINED.
WHEN HE WOKE UP HALF
A CENTURY YOUNGER,
WHAT DID YOU
EXPECT HE WOULD DO?
SIR, THE GOOD NEWS IS THE
SIRTUIN STIMULATORS
WERE SUCCESSFUL IN EFFECTING
CELL REJUVENATION.
BUT ONLY FOR
A FEW HOURS.
HANSEN'S FREE RADICALS
QUICKLY BECAME UNSTABLE.
NEVERTHELESS, THIS IS THE
BIGGEST BREAKTHROUGH
WE'VE HAD SO FAR.
I'M SURE WITH TIME WE CAN
SUSTAIN THE REACTION.
TAKE A GOOD
LOOK AT ME, DOCTOR.
I'M NOT EXACTLY IN
THE PRIME OF MY LIFE.
TIME IS NOT
ON MY SIDE.
THEN WITH YOUR PERMISSION
I'D LIKE TO MOVE FORWARD
ON TESTING THE FINAL
SUBJECT IMMEDIATELY.
DO IT.
THANK YOU,
COLONEL.
HAS KILMARTIN HAD ANY SUCCESS
IN LOCATING HIS GRANDFATHER?
NO, NOT YET.
SO I ASSUME HE WAS PART OF
THE ORIGINAL EXPERIMENT.
IT WAS KNOWN
AS OPERATION IMMORTALIS,
LED BY COLONEL
HENRY BURNS.
THE PROJECT WAS CLOAKED BY THE
MILITARY AS A NEW TREATMENT
TO COUNTERACT TUBERCULOSIS.
BUT...
THEY USED THE MEN OF THE TOMCATS
UNIT AS HUMAN GUINEA PIGS?
I'M AFRAID SO.
AFTER WE SHUT IT
DOWN, BURNS ESCAPED.
WELL, WHAT BECAME OF
HIS RESEARCH THEN?
IT WAS DESTROYED DURING
THE ATOMIC BOMB TESTING
OVER THE BIKINI ATOLL.
SINCE THEN, BURNS HAS MANAGED
TO STAY UNDER THE RADAR.
YEAH, UNTIL NOW.
WHAT WAS DONE TO
THE MEN BACK THEN
REPRESENTS ONLY THE FIRST
STAGE IN THE EXPERIMENT.
WE BELIEVE BURNS HAS
FINALLY RESURFACED
TO FINISH WHAT
HE'S STARTED.
YEAH, BUT
WAIT A MINUTE --
THIS STUDY WAS DONE
OVER SIXTY YEARS AGO.
HOW MANY OF THESE
MEN ARE STILL AROUND?
ONE.
COME ON. I DON'T HAVE
TIME FOR THIS.
JESSE, YOU HAVE TO
LISTEN TO
