Ethan Pierce is just another IT tech support rep at Wyatt Industries until he's zapped and infused with enough electricity that should kill him. But electrocution has just given Ethan terrifying abilities that no man has ever had.
As he grapples with his strange new powers, he and his girlfriend Emma witness a drive-by shooting in the city of Olympia. They soon learn it was related to the Martelli crime family that run the city and don't like to leave loose ends.
Fearful of the threat of the family, Ethan and Emma try to lay low, but it's no use. When Emma is attacked, Ethan uses his newfound lightning abilities to become Fuse, Olympia's "man in black."
Fueled by vengeance and empowered by his new abilities, Ethan vows to find the man who attacked Emma and get justice. But will his powers be enough to save her?
