Who Wants to be a Superhero? I do.

>> Tuesday, February 27, 2007


Who Wants to be a Superhero? (Official page | Wiki page) is a Sci-Fi Channel reality television show hosted by comics legend Stan Lee, in which costumed contestants vie to be America's next great superhero. The winner gets his or her character featured in a comic book written by Stan Lee, and an original movie about the character that will air on the Sci-Fi Channel.

And of course I'm sending in an application for the show.

I've been scrambling since I learned the deadline for Season Two is only a few weeks away, but much good work has already been done. It helps when one half of the Gratz Industries team (yours truly) is a writer, and can thus tackle the nine-page application form (requesting, among other things, a full back-story for the character), and the other half of the team (Wendi) can sew up a costume for me.

Oh yes, you must have a costume.

And no, I will not be in tights.

I am not at liberty to reveal my super-hero identity to you at present, but I should be able to say more soon. I'm also required to send in a ten-minute video as both myself and my super-hero alter-ego, and if I can summon the courage I will post the video here for public ridicule comment enjoyment.

Excelsior!

I weep for you, and yes they are real tears that sting my face even now. Please come back to me. It's not too late.

Great Caesar's Ghost!! I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Of course, I can't wait to see the costume.
