WHO WANTS TO BE A SUPERHERO?!  
SO...Last night, i switch on the SCI-FI channel...and what do I see? A NEW REALITY SHOW!!!!

"WHO WANTS TO BE A SUPER HERO?"

The Shows website... http://www.scifi.com/superhero/



I have to say that it reall was amusing! I enjoyed it and imagined how myself and some of my LJ friends would fare on this show! LOL!!

THE PREMISE



Bruce Nash Entertainment (Meet My Folks, For Love or Money, Who Wants to Marry My Dad?), executive producer Scott Satin (NBC's Most Outrageous Moments specials, Outback Jack, Who Wants to Marry My Dad?) and renowned comic-book writer, editor and creator Stan Lee's (Spider-man, Hulk, The Fantastic Four, X-Men) POW! Entertainment bring viewers this six-episode, one-hour weekly competition reality series that will challenge a lucky few to create their very own superhero and reward the winner with the best reality competition prize yet: immortality!

Each contestant begins with an original idea for a superhero, a self-made costume, and their best superhero mojo. From thousands of hopefuls, Stan Lee chooses 11 lucky finalists who move together into a secret lair. There they will begin their transformations — and their competition for the opportunity to become real-life superheroes. Over the course of the series, they will test their mettle, try to overcome their limitations, and do what it takes to prove that they truly are super.

The finalists will leave their former lives behind and become their brainchild heroes, all under Stan Lee's watchful eye. Each week, our aspiring heroes will be challenged with competitions designed to test their true natures. No one will be asked to perform feats of impossible strength; our superheroes will be tested for courage, integrity, self-sacrifice, compassion, and resourcefulness — all traits that every true superhero must possess.

In the end, only one aspiring superhero will have the inner strength and nobility to open the gates to comic-book immortality. The winner of this six-week competition will walk away with their character immortalized in a new comic book developed with Stan Lee. And that's not all — the winning character will also appear in an original SCI FI Channel movie!

Our contestants don't have to love comic books to be the superheroes we're looking for, and you don't need to read comic-books to appreciate their struggle to become the best they can be. So tune in and see what drives these rare individuals who are willing to push themselves to their limits, and find out what motivates someone Who Wants to Be a Superhero!


I've apparently missed the first few episodes...not having seen the eliminations of Iron Enforcer, Levity, Cell Phone Girl and Nitro G! Too bad too because 'Levity' is a hottie and from his write up, probably gay!!

Last night I saw the elimination of Monkey Woman (For giving away her secret identity) and Tyveculus (for not being self sacrificing).

Following are some links to pics of these guys...

Who could I be?
I think if I were a Superhero, I'd be like Superman and have my spectacles as a disguise.
Then, when I took them off... I'd be...

Blindman!

We had that show here in NZ a few years back, or something very similar, it was called who wants be be the next super hero, or action hero or something to thats effect. For some reason we get the shows like that here first, i was talking to one of my professors about it awhile back and he said NZ is often used as a trail audience for things in America, such as eftpos machines!

WOW! I didn't know that we Yanks were using you guys as guinea pigs! I know that we revamp quite a few English programs and they become instantly popular!
