Stan “The Man” Lee creator of the greatest superheroes of our time, Spider-Man, Daredevil, The Hulk, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men and so on knows a thing or two about folks with special abilities. An expert on the fantastic, wouldn’t you say? With that being the case it appears reality has finally caught up to his marvelous (<– haha see what I did there?) fantasies. According to THR, Stan Lee will be seeking out and exposing real life people with superhero like abilities for his new TV series for the History Channel called “Stan Lee’s Superhumans”. This is not to be confused with “Who Wants to Be a Superhero“. Which was a reality series that offered comic fanatics the chance to immortalize their own super character creation into a comic book. Nope. Stan is tired of that (which is a shame because that show rocked). His latest venture will actually be similar to the show Superhuman on the Science Channel. A show that looks at the remarkable abilities of those that are genetically diffrent. Kinda like X-Men but in real life.
Just so you know, there are in fact crazy ass things some people can do. There are folks than can drain electricity from everyday batteries, to full on buildings. Magnet men that are able to attract metal objects. Blind folks that use echo location like Daredevil. Stan Lee looks to show us these mutant like powers and prove that superheroes are indeed among us.
“Stan Lee’s Superhumans” is scheduled to air during The History Channel’s third quarter. It will also be co-hosted by Daniel Browning Smith, who’s also known as the world’s most flexible man.
