Format: DVD
With comic book movies being released every other weekend these days, the world of superheros has never been more prevalent in our culture. Enter the History Channel and A&E with their perfectly timed new series "Stan Lee's Superhumans." To be sure this exciting series reveals itself to basically be a reinvented "Ripley's Believe It or Not" by the end of the eight-episode first season. But the people profiled here more than make up for the slightly overdone title - for the most part they really are superhumans. From the Houston man who can bend metal and hold back a motorcycle with his hands to the samurai who can cut a beebee pellet in half after it's shot at him to the Indian man who can conduct electricity through his body without being harmed, there's more exciting feats of human uniqueness than you can fully comprehend.

The series is narrated and led by Daniel Browning Smith, known as the most flexible man in the world (I was honestly disappointed he wasn't fully profiled in an episode, but oh well). Stan Lee also makes a few appearances each episode from behind a desk, reminding the viewer why his name is attached to the show. Smith and Lee manage some decent banter, but Smith's personality is really the big selling point of the show as Lee mostly reads stiltedly from a teleprompter. As Smith travels around the world interviewing and helping with experiments on the various supposed "superhumans" his presence serves to ground the show with a light-hearted but inquisitive tone that does the people being profiled justice.

Stan Lee hired the world's most flexible man to go find the greatest superhumans on the planet. They bring a camera crew with them to show you that these people are really out there.

As the team encounters the "superhumans," they are asked to perform tasks that can't really be faked. And they generally get them looked at by a doctor to see what's going on to make them so spectacular.

A few people you'll meet are:
- A man who can dive to the safety limits of a SCUBA diver, but only while holding his breath.

- A musician who can play a nearly a whole symphony of sounds with his voice, all at the same time
- Another musician who can hear a song and play it almost perfectly -- and he remembers every song he's ever heard
- A runner who actually gets less tired the more he runs -- and he can run from the moment he wakes to the moment he goes to bed.

What makes these guys tick?
How did they discover their ability?
And how many people out there have spectacular abilities that they don't even know they have?

You'll learn the answers to all of these question through their compelling stories. Some thick with drama (like one man tried to kill himself but found he couldn't -- he was impervious to his chosen form of death). Others are displays of sheer insanity (like the man who likes to bash things with his skull).

You'll have fun and your understanding of what it means to be human will expand with each interesting episode.

My son is fascinated with people who have unusual skills and loves watching Stan Lee's Superhumans on TV. He's also a huge fan of the Guiness Book of World Records, movies, speed, action, anything that's beyond the norm. I was glad to find that Superhumans is on DVD. It came fast and well packaged. I've been buying from Amazon almost since its beginning and have been pleased 99% of the time. For that 1% that I wasn't happy with, Amazon and/or the seller were always fast and efficient and very polite in making sure that they either refunded my money (usually within 24 hours or less) or replaced the item and rushed it to me.

Not bad. This isn't a show about people with laser eyes or retractable claws, but rather about folks with curious abilities and features that seem like something you'd see on the old 'Ripley's Believe it or not' program. The people that are featured are fascinating and their abilities really have you wondering what the potential is of the human body and mind.

When this was on the History Channel, I watched one episode with a guy they call the hammer head. They go to the boxing gym he works out at and break cinder blocks over his head and hit a cinder block on his head with a sledge hammer. The host remarks that the cinderblocks could be absorbing most of the energy of the hit, and thus his head isn't super human at all. To that I would challenge the host to break a cinderblock over his head, but instead the guy says "I can show you something else.... But we can't do it here". Whoa! Where are they going to go to show us this amazing feat? Is it in Mexico? Is it at the guy's house? No, they end up at a Goodwill. Apparently, you can perform amazing stunts of inhuman proportion at the Goodwill where the typical gym will say "Not Here!"

In the meantime they conduct an MRI on the guy and find his skull is like 30% thicker than a typical human's so the guy really is "Superhuman" That's the great thing about this series. Not only does it show you the superhuman feats, it attempts to explain why the person is able to do the things he or she does.

Back at the Goodwill Hammerhead pounds a nail into a board with his head. He gets it about an inch in before he starts bending the nail beyond the point of any further penetration. The host is amazed by his feat and tries to give him attaboys, but he is sitting there with a big welt on his forehead and the only thing he could muster up to say is "I did that" or something like that.

If the rest of the characters in this series are as entertaining as Hammerhead, I look forward to adding this set to my DVD library! That was easily one of the best things I saw on Television last year. Actually, just having the Hammerhead episode is worth buying this entire series.
