Donald Wright felt rather invisible to the world and especially to the woman he's fallen in love with, J.J. Waterston. Suddenly meteorological disturbances around the world bring Don an unusual gift. He finds a supersuit and once he puts it on, he's trapped in it. Unable to take it off, he finds his mind being altered somewhat as well. He feels that decisions are no longer being made that way he consciously would make them. Rather than walking by, Don now The Sire, is compelled to do what the suit wants and save the day. He doesn't hesitate. He doesn't overthink it. He doesn't even doubt himself or his normal human abilities and becomes a superhero.
Don Wright's life is mundane. He's a cameraman for WBNU TV and works for anchorwoman J.J. Waterston.
