Garbage Man is the story of Richard Ethan Morse, an ambitious corporate lawyer who accidentally discovers some illegal activities by his largest client, Titan Pharmaceuticals. Not wanting to risk exposure, Titan's lead research scientist, Holden Clive, has Morse abducted and used as a guinea pig for his immoral human growth experiments. The experiments go horribly wrong and the evidence along with Richard Morse are destroyed. But Richard Morse's chemically altered remains mingle with the refuse from Titan's waste dump and he emerges as Garbage Man. His journey to bring Titan to justice leads him into conflict with other outrageous monsters, all the while trying to rediscover his lost humanity and new purpose for his life.
