Sarcastro's big chance

Stan Lee has found a new way to whore himself out. It was bad enough when he insisted on a cameo in the Spiderman movie. Then there was The Hulk. Ughh.
Now, he is doing a show on SciFi, called Who Wants to be a SuperHero.

Each contestant begins with an original idea for a superhero, a self-made costume, and their best superhero mojo. From thousands of hopefuls, Stan Lee chooses the lucky finalists who move together into a secret lair. There they will begin their transformations — and their competition for the opportunity to become real-life superheroes. Over the course of the series, they will test their mettle, try to overcome their limitations, and do what it takes to prove that they truly are super.

Fans of The Tick are familiar with this plotline, as it was already done in episode 36.
