STAN LEE S SUPERHUMANS: SEASON 1 includes all 8 episodes



Comic book genius Stan Lee and Daniel Browning Smith, one of the world’s most flexible men, co-host this mesmerizing series about people whose extraordinary evolutionary gifts make them the real-life counterparts of Lee’s superhero creations. Their worldwide search uncovers a man from India who can withstand immense amounts of electricity, a Scottish psychic, an Englishman with telekinetic powers and a Texan who is the strongest man alive.Anyone in any field that trains for certain things requiring quick response –from emergency services to athletic competition– will recognize “being in the zone” from this. Anyone willing to dedicate that much of his or her life to such training could duplicate many of the feats performed, though there are also some physical ability realities to take into consideration –an arthritic or awkward human body would have difficulties. Note that doesn’t take anything away from those who can do such things…the dedication is stupendous. But 1 star fr once again spreading misinformation as fact just to make money in an already mislead, overhyped world too far removed from reality.

The DVD comes with a ton of bonus footage cut from the show. The A/V Quality is pretty amazing, but it lacks any real punch-up. That’s typical for most History Channel offerings, but it lacks anything to excite the home theater enthusiast. Still, it’s fun material with Stan Lee. That should be enough for a rental from the Marvel Zombies.
