Reposted from last strip on the subject of Who Wants to Be a Superhero? which Jix and Lauren have both auditioned for:

The basic show's premise is that it's a reality show where a filming crew from Sci-Fi goes to different places and Stan Lee appears on a screen and auditions a person to see if they might make a good superhero or not. (Whether or not the character they dressed up as, original design, of course, is up to snuff of having his or her own comic book.)

Anyway, he picks a certain number of them and you really only get to see about five minutes of it on the season premier. (Those five minutes are kind of like American Idol, except you pitch your idea to Stan Lee who is so much cooler than all three AI judges put together.) Anyway, when the group is chosen, they're taken to a building set up to accomodate the superhero hopefuls.

Every episode, Stan appears on a flat screen TV (he never appears in person to the superheroes on the show) and gives them a mission. They're a LOT more organized this season. He watches the superheroes in action and sees what they did wrong and where their flaws are. Then at the end of the show, he pulls up three that screwed up royaly (anything from fear of the mission to annoying their teammates) and he tells the three to explain why he should let them stay. He then kicks one off.

The winner of this contest gets their a one-shot comic featuring their character published by Dark Horse comics and written by Stan "The Man" Lee himself (their makeshift costumes that they start the show with gets redesigned after a while and they're given to those that are left by that episode.) They also appear on a Sci-Fi channel original movie.

Wait did that guy in the background get run over and get back up? Fucking hell why do i find that so funny. This is why you're such a good web comic writer/artist. Keep up the good work!
