Now in its second season, Who Wants To Be A Superhero? is a competition reality series unlike any other, challenging 10 lucky finalists to create their very own superhero alter ego, live together in a secret lair under the watchful eye of Stan Lee and compete for the best reality competition prize yet: immortality! The winning superhero is immortalized in a new comic book from Dark Horse Comics created by Stan Lee himself and appears in a SCI FI Channel original movie. This year's winner will also see his/her character turned into an action figure by Shocker Toys.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST Reality Show June 25, 2008
Format:DVD
Let me start this review by saying that I am not a reality show fan by any means. If it doesn't star Kathy Griffin (Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List - The Complete First Season), then I don't want any part of it. Why? I prefer well-scripted shows. Something that involves a writer...with creative and intuitive talent.

I watched WHO WANTS TO BE A SUPERHERO? Season 2 for two reasons: (1) I enjoy anything involving comic books, superheroes, etc. and (2) I knew one of the contestants. WHO WANTS TO BE A SUPERHERO turned out to be one of the most entertaining and "real" shows I've ever seen, so I'd recommend it to people for that reason alone as my number three (3) reason. I enjoyed the motivation behind the people wanting to try out, as well as their stamina and perseverance during the "contests."

To me, it's the only reality show worth watching because of its substance. Yes, there were some silly moments, but even one of my friends who's not into superheroes truly enjoyed it. I hope they do a Season 3...and now I've also got to get Season 1 (Who Wants to Be A Superhero? (2 DVD Set)) to watch it, too!

4.0 out of 5 stars You can feel the heart in this show January 25, 2008
Format:DVD
I am a big "Who Wants To Be A SuperHero" fan, I am saying this right at the beginning so anyone reading this will know I might be biased towards the show.
When you start watching this show, you have to going in knowing this show itself, doesn't take it seriously. There are a few eye rolling moments and some parts are so corny you cannot believe they actually said it with a straight face. And the effects are not ground breaking in any meaning of the word.
But then there are some genuinely heart-warming moments where the contestants drop the superhero act and show you who they are deep down inside. There are sights of the heroes facing fears, using their heads and truly caring about their actions. If all people were like these guys, the world would be a much nicer place.
Good wholesome family fun. I recommend it buying it for anyone who isn't trying to take over the world with a deathray on the moon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy, Fun, But Not Quite as Good as Season 1 November 13, 2013
By Adam

Who Wants to be a Superhero? returned with ten contestants and eight episodes rather than season one's six episodes with eight contestants.

The show is full of heartfelt moments. Unlike other reality shows where fame and fortune awaits the biggest backstabber and liar, Who Wants to Be a Superhero had a different tone. It was a show about the type of character it takes to be a hero. The core members of the competition bond in a way that's really touching particularly when you get down to the final three. While they remain aware that they're in a competition, they often encourage one another, bond with one another, and feel bad when someone is asked to leave the lair. They also challenged each other to grow and at least one really stepped up, faced her fears, and became a stronger person.

These were people living a childhood dream of doing superhero stuff and you have to admire that.

The show has plenty of goofy fun. In some ways, this season dialed up the cheese factor with a lot of silly special effects added in post-edit and plot point worked into regarding "Evil Stan." I found it endearing, but others may have groaned.

What bogged this season down was that many of the contests were obviously not up to this either emotionally or physically. Not until after the first six eliminations did we have a team of people who was truly heroic. It seems incredible that these were the best choices, the audition could come up with it.

Still, the show had a lot of heart and it kept my wife and I both fully engaged watching it six years after it first aired.
