This is a series that I enjoyed as an 11 year old in the fall of 1990.
It was sorta like Ironman meets Batman.

The story takes place in 2020, and it is about Zachary Stone, who was an astronaught who became famous for his Mars landing mission. His older brother, a cop, was murdered while on a case to bring down Satori, a philantrophist who is actually planning to take over the city both politically and corporately. Zack returns to Earth and is not too thrilled at seeing how things are going, by both his brother's death, and the increasing crime rates. He joins the police force in pursuit of his brother's killer. To avoid spoiling the rest, the jist is, he soon meets up with a scientist who works for the company that made the Mars mission possible, and has his space suit modified for street use and crime fighting. The suit, along with the bitchin' motorcyle he gets, looks pretty fearsome.....a mix between Darth Vader, Samus Aran and a little bit of Halo.

I loved this series, but sadly, it's not on video or DVD. Only the pilot, that I know of, was released on VHS and until about 7 years ago, the tape would go for up to $90.00 a copy! Something about demo tapes for video rentals or something was the reason for the insane price. Luckily, I managed to get a copy off evilbay for under $20.00. It's great to have this, but I sure wish this comes to DVD one day, and the entire series at that.


Here's both a wiki for it

I remember this, but never knew what it was called (I only watched one or two episodes). I do remember an advertisement for an action figure (more like a doll) that came with the motorcycle. Never saw it in person, but the ad was pretty cool.

Loved it. Even had a poster of him and the bike in my dorm room.

Would be nice for this one to eventually hit dvd. Same with Time Trax
