Network: Cartoon Network

Five years prior to the start of the series, a massive explosion released nanites into the atmosphere, infecting every living thing on Earth. These nanites randomly activate inside their hosts, mutating the subject into a monster known as an E.V.O. (Exponentially Variegated Organism). These Evos are usually mindless creatures that are a danger to everything around them. To combat the Evo threat, the organization known as Providence was created to capture and cure them. Rex is a 15-year-old amnesiac teenager who, like everyone else, has been infected with nanites. However, unlike most Evos, Rex can control his nanites, allowing him to manifest a variety of powers and even cure other Evos of their mutations. Working with Providence under Agent Six, he helps stop the Evos as they appear. Working against Providence is Van Kleiss, an Evo with connections that are not only to the event which released the nanites, but to Rex as well.

Things take a turn for the worse when a cadet, Kenwyn, who is angry at Rex for dropping her rank from #1, turns off the power restraint collar placed on E.V.O.s agents in training must battle. As a twist, the General sends her down instead of Rex since Rex fought it eariler in the episode. All the E.V.O.s, including Weaver, break loose and wreak havoc until Kenwyn works with Noah and a very helpful extra to distract the E.V.O.s so Rex can beat them. These four graduate from Basic Training and Noah and Rex are seen walking down the Stone Steps, betting money on who will make it to the bottom first.

Promises, Promises

#12 - Promises, Promises

Season 1 - Episode 19

It's Rex's birthday (more accurately the anniversary of when he first joined Providence) and Six has flashbacks about how Rex first joined Providence. Back when Providence was forming, captured E.V.O.s were detained only until they were disassembled on a molecular level for study. However, Dr. Holiday, an assistant at the time, believes that studying how nanites cause mutations may one day allow for an option other than kill or contain: cure. One day, Six and his partner White Knight were called to Mexico to deal with a rampaging bio-mechanical E.V.O. only for the E.V.O. to collapse after being battered enough and revealed to be fourteen-year-old Rex. Rex cures a second E.V.O. right in front of Six's eyes and he brings him back to Dr. Holiday to be studied. Despite Rex being her all and more of her wildest dreams rolled into one, Six insists that they keep him under wraps for now. However, White Knight finds Rex and brings him to the head of E.V.O. Studies, Dr. Fell, in hopes that disassembling him will reveal how his curing powers work and how to cure the entire planet all in one shot. However, Six believes that it is too big of a risk to sacrifice what they know will work for something that might work. With assistance from Bobo, a recently captured E.V.O. who was holding the Kremlin hostage for caviar before his capture, Dr. Holiday is able to save Rex. However, White Knight and Six's fight had caused the E.V.O. disassembly machine to overload and destroy all the nanites in White Knight's body, but Rex is able to save White Knight's life by turning off the machine with his powers, in the process, bleaching White Knights skin and hair. Rex's curing abilities has given Providence much needed funding and White Knight is made head of Providence for his zero nanite count. Back in the present, Six gives Rex a Tantō inscribed with the symbol of loyalty for his birthday and states that he has its twin (which was given to him for his birthday the day he found Rex) and sta

Payback

#13 - Payback

Season 1 - Episode 21

Rex and Noah are aboard the Keep and returning to Providence HQ when news breaks of surprise attacks against major Providence bases around the world. Having lost his nature-controlling powers at Rex's hands (he has apparently manage to turn himself back into a E.V.O. through a as of yet unidentified means), Van Kleiss is out for revenge; he personally leads the Abysus forces which board the Keep. Rex counter attacks, but is restrained by Biowulf long enough for Van Kleiss to drain Rex of all his active nanites. This alters his powers into the mirror image of Rex's: as Rex is able to cure E.V.O's, Van Kleiss is now able to create them, which he demonstrates on Captain Calan. The depowered Rex is thrown from the Keep by Biowulf, but is rescued in midair by Six's jumpjet. Van Kleiss is determined to destroy Providence once and for all; the Keep is rammed into the HQ tower, and a heavy battle develops. Rex, Noah and Bobo escape in a jumpjet to Purgatory Base, where Rex risks his life by immersing himself in active nanites in order to reactivate his powers. The procedure seemingly activates the large, unusual nanite that Dr. Rylander had injected into him in Dark Passage. Providence HQ is about to fall; Van Kleiss makes it into the situation room, defeats Six, and dispatches Biowulf and Skalamander after White Knight and Dr. Holiday. Rex reappears and attacks Van Kleiss, manifesting a new, whip-like build granted by Rylander's nanite; he is able to use its abilities to disable Van Kleiss. Meanwhile Holiday takes down Skalamander by releasing her E.V.O. sister, and White Knight lures Biowulf into a trap. Van Kleiss is snatched to safety by an E.V.O., while Breach sets bombs throughout Providence as a diversion. Rex finds he is able to shut down the entire HQ with his new powers. Providence takes Biowulf, Skalamander, and many other E.V.O.s left behind into custody; Rex, back to his old self, cures Captain Calan. Rex is warmly commended by White Knight and confidently obse
