Voiceover:
Long ago, in a remote corner of the world, ancient astronauts landed from a distant planet with a gift for mankind: The Phoenix. For a thousand years, he has waited, suspended in time. Now, he is awakened to complete his mission. He searches for his partner, Mira, for only she knows his ultimate assignment on Earth. Dependent on the sun for his strength and survival, endowed with a superior intelligence, he has fully developed the powers of the human mind. Relentlessly pursued by those who seek to control him, he must stay free. The Phoenix.
