The Walker Project was a scientific experiment that featured in an episode of Mutant X.
The Walker Project was created by Genomex doctors Dennis Malone, Leo McAllister and Mark Kearney. The aim of the experiment was to streamline the abilities of New Mutants who possessed the ability to astral project themselves in order for them to serve in undercover government operations.
One of the test subjects, a teenage known as Cyrus Payton, had his soul travel so far one day that his body died in the process. Rather then find him a new body, Dr Malone trapped him in an electrical stasis cell until he later on escaped.
