The story revolved around the second coming of Jesus Christ as a superhero who looked like popular British television personality Jonathan Ross. This superhero, called The Saviour, has set out to change the world for the better. However we find out The Saviour is actually the antichrist and plans to take over the world with the aid of a satanic cult devoted to him. The only thing which could stop him is the presence of the real Son of God and much of the story involves The Saviour's attempts to track his foe down. Eventually it is discovered that the Son of God is actually an angel and not the real Jesus Christ. The Saviour kills him thinking he has won, but there is another super powered being on Earth and is unknown to The Saviour.
It is at this point that the series was cancelled when Trident went bankrupt.
