The best reality show idea. Ever.

stan lee; superheroJust when I thought reality shows were a thing of the past, SciFi goes and breathes new life into the television genre. The cable channel just announced a casting call for its new reality competition, Who Wants to be a Superhero? The grand prize: Immortality. Yeah, baby. Yeah.

Producers are currently seeking audition tapes. You need to get your geek on with a costume, an original idea, and some serious superhero personality. Contestants will be chosen through interviews with comic book creator, Stan Lee (Spider-Man, The X-Men, Fabulous Four, Daredevil, Incredible Hulk). Lee will write a comic about the winner of the contest, making the superhero immortal in the world of comics.

To give you an idea of what producers are looking for, Lee said, "While no one is expected to leap tall buildings in a single bound, our aspiring heroes will be tested on their courage, integrity, self-sacrifice, compassion, and resourcefulness - the stuff of all superheroes."

What would your superhero powers be?

I love this idea! One minor correction - I believe it is "The Fantastic Four" that Stan Lee created. The "Fabulous Four" would be The Beatles. Although, come to think of it, Stan Lee probably created The Beatles, too.
