After a crippled test pilot is rebuilt with nuclear powered limbs and implants, he serves as a unique intelligence agent.
PBS' children's show The Electric Company (1971) did a series of skits based on this show, called "The Six Dollar and Thirty Nine Cent Man".
Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive.
Oscar Goldman: Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better... stronger... faster.
Although Austin's legs and right arm are bionic, nothing was done to reinforce his back and spine. As a result, most of his displays of bionic strength (lifting and throwing heavy objects, etc.) would either be impossible or would have caused crippling if not fatal injury.
