''Phantom 2040'' is an afaeAnimatedAdaptation AnimatedAdaptation of the comic book superhero ComicStrip/ThePhantom.



The Phantom's fight against crime and corruption often involves crossing swords with {{Megacorp}}oration Maximum, Inc. Maximum's founder, Maxwell Madison, disappeared on the same night as Kit's father, and this, it quickly becomes clear, is not mere coincidence. The corporation is now run by his widow, Rebecca, with (not much) help from Max Madison Jr. Following the death of his father, Max Jr. has developed into a psychologically withdrawn young man with no interest in anything much except his cat, Baudelaire. (Having the temperamental Rebecca for a mother probably didn't help.) Rebecca Madison's [[TheDragon Dragon]] is Maximum's security chief, Graft, a cynical former soldier and enviromentalist who was critically injured in a battle and now is kept alive by Maximum technology; what's left of his body can be plugged into a variety of robotic frames ranging from approximately human to full on battle mech.
