"X-Men" co-creator Stan Lee is set to re-explore the world of mutants - or, at least regular people with genetic gifts. The History channel has tapped Lee to co-host "Stan Lee's Superhumans" with David Browning Smith a.k.a. "The World's Most Flexible Man. Each episode will put the pair in search of folks with unique abilities granted at least in part by their special genetic makeup. For everyone's sake, I hope Cerebro is involved.
In a way, the show's premise seems a little like Lee's comic book film cameos in that the wonderfully hyperbolic host will take something of a back seat to those with special abilities. Depending on how the series' subject matter is presented, that might be a good or a bad thing. I personally wouldn't mind watching Lee host a weekly 5 hour-long freeform talk show, so what do I know?
There's no official launch date set in stone for SLS, but it's expected to air sometime between July and September. Keep your incredibly powerful eyes peeled - or peel them off - whatever your unique biology safely allows.
