    Van Jensen talks Six Million Dollar Man: Fall of Man #1, on sale in July from Dynamite.

    BYRON BREWER: Van, first, tell us how it feels to be writing for Dynamite.

    VAN JENSON: Itís a big honor. Iíve known of Dynamite and admired their books for years, and in my time working in comics Iíve had a chance to get to know some of the Dynamite team, and theyíre great people. Itís also a reunion with Matt Idelson, who was my editor on Green Lantern Corps. Heís a great guy, even if he does insist on settling all story disagreements via arm wrestling and has launched a campaign to have people call me Van ďGlass WristĒ Jensen.

    BB: Dynamiteís last Steve Austin book was a natural continuation of the TV show, with all the iconic trappings. Tell us about this iteration of the character.

    VJ: Weíre definitely still operating in the world of the TV series and picking up that continuity. The main focus here is that, after years of adventuring, Steve has had more and more of himself replaced by bionic parts, to the point that heís starting to fear losing his humanity entirely. Heís wearied, ready for something other than running missions. The biggest problem is that OSI isnít ready to let him go.

    BB: Anything additional you can tell us, non-spoilery, about the storyline?

    VJ: In the first issue alone, Steve learns a game-changing secret about OSI, breaks free, fights ninjas and meets someone who holds the key to restoring his humanity. From there, itís a global adventure that sees Steve hunting down the keys to removing his cyborg parts and replacing them with cloned body parts. But these same bits of technology also are central to building cyborg soldiers, so every military around the world will be racing with Steve to claim them. Itís a big, weird, super-fun story thatís also going to be a little formally experimentalójust wait for issue No. 3!

    BB: How do you enjoy working with artist Ron Salas?

    VJ: Ron is amazing! Heís one of the smartest, most creative artists in the industry. Heís also way too humble and super nice and just an awesome guy all around. Iím beyond thrilled to be working with him. I canít wait for everyone to see the incredible work heís doing on this book.

    So no resolution to Russian death probe, RoboBarney or Maskatron going after Bigfoot then..

    Don't forget 20 years ago ..We almost got Bionix which would've looked like this...
    http://bionic.wikia.com/wiki/Bionix

    So Season 6 comics was a Dream episode and it doesn't count????

    Wil we see any of the characters from the original shows...??
