So has anyone seen Who Wants to be a Super-Hero? This has got to be one of the lamest attempts at television programming ever. This piece of crud is on the SciFi Channel. The basic format is similar to other competitive reality shows like Top Chef or Project Runway. The difference is those shows take people trying to make it in a real profession, like cooking or fashion design. They are presented with challenges in their field, and each episode one is booted from the group. In this new show, the competitors are given challenges and one is booted each week. However each competitor on this show has created a Super-Hero character for themselves. They are given “superhero” challenges and the guy in charge is the legendary Stan Lee.
Stan Lee was the guiding light of Marvel Comics for decades and co-created characters like Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. Now he is seen giving the challenges to these wanna-be super heroes. These people look completely ridiculous in their costumes. I can’t even begin to imagine what would make someone so desperate to be on TV that they would take part in this travesty. I watched part of it with Max last week and not only did it look low budget and cheesy but it was boring and stupid. Will they please stop!
