It’s not “Sci-Fi”
Calling Future Man “Sci-Fi” can be misleading as it doesn’t follow the genre’s trends or structure. It’s a “character-driven adventure epic” with sci-fi archetypes at its center. A tribute to classic Sci-Fi writers, their concepts and their expectations for the future.
A “Bridge” between the Present and the Future
Earth-centered Sci-Fi stories are usually set in the near-future or in decades or centuries from now. Future Man shows “the process” of changing the world, from nearly as it is today, into a utopian Star Trek-ish future.
It could be your story
Action/fiction protagonists of late tend to have some sort of ”advantage” when compared with normal people:
- have superpowers from birth
- are rich and/or have dead parents
- have some sort of special training
- have some sort of godfather helping them
- are royalty
- are supernatural
- or, in the very least, are pulled into situations unlikely to happen to you
Future Man’s protagonist, Vincent De Marcos, could be anyone, man or woman. It’s a story that means to challenge us into thinking what we’d do, at every turn, were we in his shoes.
