The Catalyst is set in the near future where the world is sculpted by a rapid progression in technology. Our main character Donovan Gregory is at the center of progression becoming a millionaire overnight with his breakthrough inventions. However, his investor, Gabriel Gralyn, has ulterior motives of his own to rush humanity into its evolution. After realizing some inventions he created are a blessing and a curse under the wrong control Donovan begins destroying blueprints and notes before resigning his position under Gabriel. Unwilling to let Donovan walk away from everything they've built, Gabriel forces Donovan to reveal the catalyst to his most sacred creation. However, when Donovan attempts to flee he is fatally wounded in the commotion. Presumably deceased, Donovan changes his identity and creates the persona Mr. Untouchable arming himself with his unreleased projects. With his new persona, Donovan plans to sabotage Gabriel's efforts to foolishly thrust human evolution before its time.
