Outhouse tvphile Nightfly reviews this week's superteam on Stan Lee's Superhumans.This week 'The Man' assembled quite the motley crew of 'superhumans.' Stan's bendy sidekick, Daniel Brown Smith, dutifully continued the series' worldwide quest for proof of real life superhumans, beginning in Nevada.
Faster than the eye can see, Bob 'Quick Draw' Munden can fire not one, but two cocked shots with a single handgun in significantly less than 1/10 of a second. Also known as 'The World's Fastest Gunslinger', Bob's quickdraws produce an astonishing 10g forces of acceleration. He may live in Las Vegas, but Quick Draw's instinctive speed is a sure bet everytime
"Perhaps it's genetic" said the dumbfounded scientist to Timo Kaukonen, famed Finnish Sauna Champion, recruited by Stan as Heat Wave. Though native to a land known for its cold, Kaukonen has an uncanny ability to withstand tempertures exceeding 265 degrees fahrenheit. Owing to his bodies power to redistribute heat, Timo can endure more than a quarter hour in temps hot enough to boil water.
The World's Most Flexible Man completed this week's team with two very different Americans. To New York's Chinatown...
Born in a Shaolin Temple, Kung Fu master Shi Yan Ming a.k.a. Ultimate Warrior, uses his amazing Chi' power to deliver an undeniably 'superhuman' punch. The devastating force of his (Bruce Lee inspired) 1" punch, alone, measured twice as deadly as a car crash. Crash-test scientist Cindy, who wrote her dissertation on chest impact injuries, literally marveled at Shi's explosive power.
Lastly, Daniel traveled to the cold of Colorado to spotlight a physics defying daredevil dubbed Splash. Combining heroic levels of mind-body, as well as, mathematical coordination, Darren Taylor manages to momentarily increase his body's density up to four tons in order to survive a 33ft. shallow dive into 12 inches of icy-cold water.
As superhuman abilities go, Splash's power seems the hardest to effectively fight crime with,... but I digress.
Next week's crew of 'superhumans' appears even more motley, so don't miss my next review of Stan Lee's Superhumans.
Onwards and Upwards!
