Just caught the first episode of SciFi's new reality show. I thought it was cute. Rediculous, but fun to watch. And Stan Lee rocks. ^_^

Stan Lee hosts a bunch of ordinary guys who dress up in costume and tasks them to be super humans. Naturally, they can't jump over buildings and shit, but they're tested on their ability to be selfless and think of the good of others. ... And, as tonights episode displayed, their ability to change, unseen, into their super hero outfit in public. Very Happy

If you win? Stan Lee draws a comic about your character! There was other stuff, I think, but that was by far the coolest.

So, what would you guys be? Your super powers?

My family has dubbed me the Wiseass, with the power to... um... be a wiseass. Think SpiderMan, minus the spider, and in a skirt. With a few more curves. ^^

(edited for grammar, as always >>)

So is the premise to be a humorous superhero, or can you make a character that takes the idea too seriously?

Dude, I'd love to see this. From what I know, Stan Lee has never drawn a comic book (one published, anyway. Lily, correct me if I'm wrong). It would be like the attack of the runaway stick figures.

Oh, totally my bad, Omega:
"The winner of this six-week competition will walk away with their character immortalized in a new comic book created by Stan Lee himself."

Ooh, the other part:
"And that's not all the winning character will also appear in an original SCI FI Channel movie!"

Ha ha, can't wait.

WoC - Doesn't have to be humorous at all. In fact, I think you're supposed to take it seriously. ^^; One of the contestants, "Monkey Woman," jumps around and screams like a monkey, even in her off time. She actually climbed a tree to change into her banana-clad outfit. ^^

Yeah, you say that now, but just try waiting at a bus stop. Fucking know-it-all, passing out advice to anyone/everyone. Eventually, it gets out of line, and someone's always there to whoop it. Confused

Very Happy Ha ha ha ha ha! That's fucking awesome! x3 I had no idea that you draw! <3

But you haven't said who you'd be! Suddenly, my fingers are itching for a pencil... ^_~

As for why I'm not on the show - not rightly sure, but I'd imagine the other contestant's body odor might be an issue... All that running around in spandex and fake fur. Confused

I don't draw as much as I like.

Hey, there's an idea. Any forumers want a rendition of them as a superhero of their design?

I think a Sinfest Forum Justice Super Consortium comic would sell like hotcakes.

I'd like to be a superhero and all, saving lives, stopping catastrophes. It's all cool, but if it means i'll have to wake up early if someone is attacked at 8.00 AM i'd rather not.
