Before I start writing anything, I always jot down a few notes about the subject first. When I wrote my little 'note to self' about this article, I only put down one sentence, and I stand by it. "I can't decide if this is awesome or scary."

Here's the story. Sci-Fi Channel has teamed up with comic's biggest living legend, Stan Lee, to produce a reality television series guessed it..."Who Wants to be a Superhero?" It will be a six episode, one hour show, and the stars will be picked by a process wherein hero hopefuls will get on stage in their very best superhero duds, and explain to the judges who they are, what their powers are, and what their hero's creed is. From this performance, Stan and Co. will pick eleven lucky heroes to be whisked away from their everyday lives and sequestered in a "secret lair," as they take on their super-personas "24/7." Here's a taste of the planned style from that point:

Each week, our aspiring heroes will be challenged with competitions designed to test their true superhero abilities. It's not all just leaping tall buildings in a single bound, a true Superhero will be tested for courage, integrity, self-sacrifice, compassion and resourcefulness.

The winner, of course, gets to star in a new comic written by Stan the Man himself.

So...who wants to venture an opinion on this?
