Dr. James Xavier is a world renowned scientist experimenting with human eyesight. He devises a drug, that when applied to the eyes, enables the user to see beyond the normal realm of our sight. It also gives the user the power to see through objects. Xavier tests the drug on himself and when his funding is cut off he takes refuge in a small carnival run by Crane. As he continues to test the drug on himself, Xavier begins to see not only through walls and clothes, but through the very fabric of reality.
