Expect more thrills, bigger challenges and even more episodes this season as once again the Sci Fi channel partners with legendary comic book creator Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment, Inc.

The show challenges a lucky few to create their very own superhero alter ego, live together in a secret lair under Stan's watchful eye, and compete in challenges that test their mettle and all the virtues of a true superhero. In the finale of Season 1, executive produced by Bruce Nash, Stan Lee, Scott Satin, and Gil Champion, Feedback, a.k.a. Matthew Atherton, was declared the winner. The 33-year-old software engineer from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., will be immortalized in his very own Dark Horse comic book created by Stan Lee. Andy Scheer (Hell's Kitchen) joins as executive producer this season.

For the True Believers ...
Man, I didn't think I'd like this show at first but it really is great. It's very endearing and positive in a way that no other reality show manages to be. Stan Lee just has that magical gleam in his eye that makes you feel like a kid again. Any fans of classic superheroes, or anyone who is just sick of sleazy reality TV and looking for something different, should check this out. Most definitely "Excelsior!"-worthy.
This show surprised me because it shows its competitors in an unusually sympathetic light. Admittedly the premise is a little silly, but despite this, the show is rewarding to watch because it's produced quite intelligently. The participants come across as genuine human beings, even while playing at being superhuman. In the end, Stan Lee comes across as the real superpower, benevolent even as he toys with the contestants. The show's chief flaw is that it isn't as balanced in its representation of the incidental characters involved in particular tasks as it is with the contestants themselves. In particular, it flattens the Asian characters in the initial episodes into uncomfortable cliches.
greatest show of all time
it has humor and action! a little corny, but wildly entertaining.
