Future Man chronicles a janitor by day, world-ranked gamer by night who is tasked with preventing the extinction of humans after mysterious visitors from the future declare him to be the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion.
Josh Futturman feels stuck in his dead-end job as a janitor so all he really does is play Biotic Wars, an unbeatable videogame the rest of the world has given up on. But when Josh beats the game, mysterious visitors from the future appear: the world is in danger, and Josh is the only one who can save it.
In the wake of the disastrous attempt to assassinate Dr. Kronish, Tiger and Wolf kick Josh off the mission. When they realize their Time Travel Device (TTD) is compromised, Josh makes a deal: if he can get them more fuel, they'll let him back on the team.
With just twenty-seven minutes before a bomb explodes in the head of their captured Biotic, Josh, Tiger, and Wolf hold a high-stakes interrogation in Josh's bedroom while Josh's unwitting parents host a holiday dinner party downstairs.
The end of the mission is in sight as Tiger and Wolf prepare for one final jump into the past. But when Josh's mom is kidnapped, Josh refuses to let Tiger and Wolf leave before they mount a daring rescue to save her.
Convinced he knows how to stop Dr. Kronish once and for all, Josh commandeers the TTD and leads the team on a mission into the past. But when Wolf goes missing, they have to spilt up, forcing Josh to carry out his insane plan alone.
