Basil James is your typical nerd living in Vancouver, BC. He's very good academically, but severely suffers when it comes to physical performance, especially in a fist fight. However, one night, his entire life changes. While walking the dark streets of the city with the school's tomboy, Crystal McKenzie, they discover a suit of armor that was purchased in a black market auction. He puts it on and is given amazing powers and abilities beyond his wildest dreams. He decides to have some fun with it and do superhero stuff with it. But when he tries to stop a bunch of prisoners from escaping, he might find himself way out of his league.
