The Six Million Dollar Man saves Christmas…four times over!

    the six million dollar man saves christmas four times

    The Six Million Dollar Man was busy saving Christmas four times. Steve Austin battles a terrorist elf named Ramat who threatens to melt the polar ice cap if Santa does not pay his elves better wages. Santa refuses to join the bargaining table. Can Steve Austin stop this labor dispute and get Christmas back on track? Can he stop the great flood of Christmas of 1978? Stop that needle! Wait a minute, Santa is a “Scrouge” who pays his elves slave wages and he is not the villain? Steve was not using his bionic senses properly.

    “Steve Austin … astronaut … a man barely alive. 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”

    Steve discovers that Santa’s elves are in a labor dispute with their boss. Complaining about low wages and bad working conditions, they go on strike. Their picket line is formed by a terrorist elf named Ramat, whose scheme to bring Santa to the bargaining table involves melting the polar ice cap. Getting a report from the National Weather Service that the ice cap is melting at a rate of 1°/hour, Steve and Oscar rush to the North Pole to see if there’s anything they can do to reverse the process. If not, the majority of the northern hemisphere will be covered in water by Christmas. However, they are soon captured by Ramat and can do little more than talk to their fellow captive, Santa Claus, about his union problems. In the end, the foreman of the elves comes to his senses and orders his men to stop Ramat. When they do so, they are able to diffuse all the heating elements Ramat had placed, and the two sides of the labor dispute reconcile. This story directly contradicts the assertion of Population Zero that cold negatively affects bionic performance.
