Abused as a child by his father, Michael eventually enlisted in the U.S. Army before becoming a secret agent. Michael became the most successful agent in the history of the United States before being betrayed, framed, and blacklisted (a.k.a. "burned"). Isolated in Miami, Michael has enlisted the help of his ex-IRA ex-girlfriend Fiona Glenanne and his Navy SEAL buddy Sam Axe in finding out who framed Michael and why.
Michael is extremely versatile, able to create a surveillance device out of a cheap cell phone and a flashbang grenade out of stuff found at a hardware store. He can destroy a car with a coffee can and take on a small army of Russian Special Forces agents with nothing but a handgun... and win.
