Stan Lee as moral compass.

Who Wants to be a Superhero is the best show ever. It is pratically a litmus test for ethics.

I'm still waiting for you to decide to add a new fragrance called ConFunk to CD update due to your recent stint at SDCC

But this is the gooood kind of burn. Former exotic dancers in tights? Rescuing crying little girls - "Quick, jump into my arms!" Pigeon guns? And that's all just one contestant!

I guess no one is surprised I like the superhero action... even the lame kind. :P

can hardly wait for the next ep this thursday. though.. Fat Momma scares me to a deep visceral level. I don't know why but she scares me.

It's great, but...
Except that it's got a distressing conservative streak. In the very first challenge, one of the women was taken to task over flirting -- because apparently that's just as bad as the other guy being gung-ho about killing people. And the first two people dismissed were the two gay contestants.

Don't get me wrong, I freakin' loved the first episode of the show and laughed my ass off at it. (And felt very proud of my ability to predict who would stop for the little girl.) But by then end... I'm not comfortable with Stan Lee as the arbiter or morals, since he's apparently got a bias against sexual expression. Yes, it could all be coincidence, but... it left a bad taste in my mouth.

Oh my god, I watched that show for the first time tonight. I love the guy in red. He is such a dorky ham. He reminded me of Jim Carey.
