Become a superhero

sciFi.jpg

Have you ever found yourself wishing to be a superhero? I think I wished to be one at different times in my life; in elementary school, when someone bothered me, I always wished I could be just like batman and and I will stop right there to avoid eternal embarrassment.

In any case, should you also wish (or have wished) to become a superhero, you now have the chance to actively pursue your dream.

Sci-Fi channel and comic book creator Stan Lee (Spidermen; X-men; Hulk; The Fantastic Four) will produce a reality show where you can become a real superhero and be immortalized forever in a comic book and a movie.

In nationwide open casting calls, potential heroes will arrive in costume to prove their mettle revealing the true nature of their superhuman abilities and invoking the noble credos by which they live. [] From thousands of hopefuls, Stan Lee will choose 11 lucky finalists to move into a secret lair and compete for the opportunity to become a real-life superhero.

Now tell me this doesnt sound promising. I cant wait to see the parade of superhero wannabees embarrass themselves in front of millions of viewers and yes, if I had a cool superhero idea and felt confident enough about it, I would probably consider joining.

I thought this might be a nice attachment to this post. Last weekend This American Life did a piece on Superheroes. In particular, there was one woman who spent years training herself to be a modern Batwoman.

Tony:

Have you heard that Marvel Comics trademarked the term "superhero"?

Ahem. Please refrain from using the term "super hero" -- lest you wish to have Marvel's permission to use the term:
