Plot[edit]

A professional skateboarder named Tony Valdez from the west coast is severely injured by mind-controlled zombies created through nano-technology on the day that his parents mysteriously die in an accident, secretly caused by his father's business partner Nigel Harrington. It seems likely that he'll never walk again until Tony's friend Sammi outfits him with similar nano-technology. It is only with the help of this new technology that Valdez is able to regain his mobility and also use superhuman abilities as a side effect. But it turns out that the technology that both healed him and allowed the creation of the zombies is connected to the death of his parents, who invented it. With new powers at his disposal, Valdez fights off the zombie threat and discovers more about the murderer of his parents and his true enemy, a minion known as Taipan.[2]
