A little to say before I go off onto the repeated description of the TV show they're on. (Who Wants to be a Superhero?) This particular strip takes place further on in the series. Several superheroes have been kicked off by Stan Lee and this particular one is after a mission Jix hasn't done very well at. So now Jix has to try and stay on the show.

Also...Stan's image is coming to them from a billboard that has a giant screen in it (or on it...I don't think there's an actual screen in it. I'm pretty sure they edit Stan's face into the scree on the billboard.)

What's important is that he is talking to them.

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.
