Outhouse tvphile Nightfly briefly reviews the premiere of Stan Lee's Superhumans on The History Channel.
Comics legend Stan 'The Man' Lee explores the past, present, and future of humankind's evolutionary vanguard in this globe trekking series profiling "superhumans" with extraordinary abilities. Daniel Brown Smith (a.k.a. The World's Most Flexible Man) serves as roving co-host traveling the world to spotlight these amazing individuals and astonish the scientists that test them.
The series opener showcased;
Electro Man a.k.a. "The Human Conductor" (from India), immune to electrocution levels that would kill average humans many times over.
A true math wizard (from San Diego) known as The Human Calculator who effortlessly performs high level math equations faster than a mathematician's calculator.
An astounding Los Angelino, blind since birth, known as Radar who uses bat-like tongue clicks to echolocate, navigate, and, actually identify objects large and small.
And a 5'6" Texan calling himself 'The World's Strongest Man' who bends steel with incredible ease, holds back more than a ton of force for 15 seconds, and scientifically proves his superhuman muscles work differently from ours.
Future episodes will profile Superhumans performing uncanny feats in the areas of magnetism, speed, and temperature resilience to name but a few.
Despite the POW! Entertainment trappings this show is actually the most serious / educational series I've seen 'The Man' produce.
I salute The History Channel for giving Stan this platform to bring True Believers the latest examples of genetic mutation! Fans of comic book superheroes should definately not miss it.
