Nathan was a subject in a government program named project Next Men. The members of the project had been kept in a government facility in huge metal chambers. While in these chambers they were immersed in The Greenery, a virtual reality. The subjects perceived that they were in an ideal world. For the most part this simulated world was peaceful and idyllic. However, ever so often they would be attacked by war machines without notice. They were able to generate weapons and armory to ward off these attacks. Nathan questioned the virtual world, perceiving that something wasn't right. Like the others, Nathan was awoken in the government facilities' metal chamber by Jack. Nathan's powers started to manifest in The Greenery, but it was in the government facility that the group learned that he had x-ray vision. Nathan's eyes allow him to see all the wavelengths of light. He and the other survivors of the project escaped from the government facility.

Based on the comic books that Danny had been reading they were given superhero identities, Nathan became Scanner.
