Plot Synopsis

Rex is a typical 15-year-old boy who likes cars, girls, music and sports, but he also has special powers and is the ultimate weapon for Providence, a global organization chartered to fight mutant creatures known as E.V.O.s (Exponentially Variegated Organism). During a global accident, microscopic machines known as nanites merged with every living thing. Most people are unaffected, but for a select few, the nanites mutate their hosts into monstrous creatures called E.V.O.s. Rex is one of these E.V.O.s, but he's special. He's the only person who is able to control the nanites, allowing him to create amazing mechanical limbs and gadgets that aid him in battle -- but also heal E.V.O.s of their mutation. The world's greatest threat is an E.V.O. named Van Kleiss, who with his minions called The Pack sees the nanites and resulting E.V.O.s as part of a greater plan and the future of humanity. On his adventures fighting Van Kleiss, kicking butt, and searching for the secrets of his mysterious powers, Rex is joined by: his sidekick, a highly intelligent monkey named Bobo Haha who encourages Rex's mischievous side; his mentor Agent Six, so called for being the world's sixth deadliest man; the brilliant Dr. Holiday, who seems to be the only one who really understands Rex; and Noah, a regular kid and Rex's friend. Guest voices include: Luke Perry, John Cena, Danica McKellar and Mark Hamill.
