A Samurai Cuts a Speeding Bullet in Half on 'Superhumans' (VIDEO)

Think feats of superhuman skill are impossible? On 'Stan Lee's Superhumans' (Thu, 10PM ET on Hist), a modern-day Samurai neatly slices a baseball thrown at 84 mph in half and connects with a bebe pellet traveling at 200 mph.

In one fluid motion, the samurai draws his sword and bisects a fastball. Then, he uses his sword to deflect a bebe pellet, breaking the projectile into chunks in the process.

An on-site expert reviews slo-motion footage of the samurai and comments on what she sees. "This is about processing at an entirely different sensory level, because he's not visually processing it," said the expert. "This is a different level of anticipatory processing, something so procedural, something so fluid for him. He's working as a perfectly calibrated machine."
