Max Steel all began with a teenager and an alien. Max McGrath was a normal teenager until he started generating this weird energy Tachyon Unlimited Radiant Bio-Optimized Energy, T.U.R.B.O Energy for short and then his Uncle Ferrus stepped in but the T.U.R.B.O Energy was at too high levels so it activated Steel Jim McGrath's (AKA Max's dad's) ultralink Steel. Steel unltralinked with Max to make Max Steel why did he ultralink to Max because Steel needed T.U.R.B.O Energy to not power down and Max needed to get rid of his T.U.R.B.O Energy so its a win-win but the flaw in the plan is that if they are apart for 8 hours or more Max will start to overload and Steel will shut down. Ever since they ultralinked they have been fighting bad guys e.g. Dredd, Toxzon and Extroyer. And have gotten lots of cool T.U.R.B.O modes e.g. base, strength and flight and a few more than that aswell.
