WhipsnapFinally caught up with this week’s seg of "Who Wants to Be a Superhero?"

Now this is my kind of reality TV (and that’s a select category. I’m even immune to "American Idol" fever.) These contestants (such as this specimen on the left, Whip-Snap) are all unabashedly certifiable. They’re running around in capes and tights, modified kitchen utensils and junk jewelry, and there’s no pretense that they’re trying to take part in a social experiment, do-gooder crusade or anything else but play the part of a comic book character.

Plus, it’s got Stan Lee popping in and out on a TV screen as the overlord of his domain. What’s not to like?
