After the Great War of 2150 the Earth was decimated by Strontium 90 radiation - which resulted in a large number of mutants being born, and subsequently discriminated against. Many of the mutants were relegated to undesirable jobs with high risk - such as bounty hunting. One of the best search and destroy agents is Johnny Alpha, who like many of his fellow hunters is known as a Strontium Dog.
