Who Wants to Be a Superhero? was a reality superhero game show.


Contestants dress up as comic book superheroes based of their own invention. Each week, Lee challenges the contestants to represent what "superheroes are all about." One or more of the superheroes deemed the least deserving is eliminated per episode. The grand prize for the winning superhero is to have his or her character star in a Dark Horse Comics comic book written by Lee and appear in an original movie to be aired on the SyFy Channel. The winner also receives a trip for two to Universal Studios Florida to participate in the park's Parade of Superheroes.


"Please turn in your costume!"
