Flying With A Green Screen - August 31|
We started with 11 heroes all with
one dream... immortality. Last time, we whittled it down to
three, Major Victory, Fat Momma, and Feedback. Feedback, whose
powers went over the heads of his audience, Fat Momma, who had
nothing to offer but 100% positivity, but was hampered by a
competition, and Major Victory, who couldn't keep his cape on,
were tested to the limits, resulting in the elimination of Major
Victory. Now only two will remain. Who will be America's newest
After a recap of the events so
far, in which Stan is still trying to determine which one to
translate to the comic universe.
That morning, Stan lets our
heroes know of the day's activities. They talk about their
superpowers... and today, they'll get to act on them! Including,
but not limited to... FLYING!
How? Fat Momma and Feedback are
going to what looks like an ordinary suburban house, but in
reality, is actually a stunt school, complete with swings,
harnesses, and green screens. They'll need all of them.
This house belongs to John Moyo,
who worked as a stunt coordinator on both Spiderman movies. And
as soon as Feedback saw what he had to offer... He was
First things first, the
trampoline. Feedback finally gets it, as Stan wants to see the
two in action. He gives it his 110. "We've got ourselves a real
Fat Momma... Not so much.
Next, we're going to do some
fighting against each other. Welcome to Throwing a Fake Punch
Final lesson... flying! This will
be done with a green screen and a swing. The secret: height and
distance. Feedback is a quick study. He felt like he really was
flying... until he landed. "Then I came back to reality...
because it hurts."
Fat Momma... couldn't do the
swinging. "What am I trying to prove here? Feedback is young and
very athletic. Too many people depend on me, so I decided to
Next, how to grow after eating a
donut and how to catch a falling meteorite.
Stan tells them that this was
purely to see how they'd look on the big screen. The time is
approaching to decide on a superhero.
That said, they return to the
lair and prepare to leave it for good. But first, the heroes
must talk to Stan for a bit.
First, Feedback. Stan wants to
learn more about Matthew, not Feedback. He wants to win. "I want
to be a superhero. I learned that it's not about doing backflips.
It's about who you are and how you react to people. I want
people to know that they can trust me." He says that Stan is his
hero. "It all started when my dad died. My father was in the
military, and he seriously injured his back. After years of
excruciating pain, he just couldn't handle it anymore and he
committed suicide. I identified with Spider-Man. I so needed a
positive male role model. It felt like you were writing a story
for me so that I could learn a lesson."
Now, Fat Momma. Again, Stan wants
to learn more about Nell, not about Fat Momma. Her most
significant moment was when she was told that he was proud of
her. "It seems like such an honor." Her hero? Her father. "To
me, the backbone of the family was a good man. Now he's getting
older, and I know that he won't be here much longer, but I
really appreciate every day I have with him. Being here has been
hard." She talks about his memory loss and how hard it is to
talk to him. Stan calls her his hero. She thanks him for being
there to talk to.
Stan has grown close to the two
of them, and they're both winners. It's going to be hard to
choose one. He'll have to choose, but not on the roof... Both
will meet Stan at Universal CityWalk to hear the result. "Your
own journey has led up to this moment."
UNIVERSAL CITY WALK, UNIVERSAL
And the moment at long last has
arrived. Tonight, we'll crown the world's next great superhero.
At stake, the greatest prize ever
given away on reality TV... IMMORTALITY! The winner will
- his or her own comic book
created by Stan Lee for Dark Horse Comics
- his or her own SciFi Channel Saturday Night Original Movie
- a vacation for two to Universal Orlando Resort, where he or
she will ride in the Superhero Parade at Islands of Adventure.
First, demo clips of both of Fat
Momma and Feedback. Fat Momma can take out drug smugglers and
the irrepressible Chicken Man. Not to mention the Dark Enforcer
and lesser creatures from other SFCSNOMs.
Next, Feedback's demo reel. We
see his backstory, as he protects the world from the Dark
Enforcer, cannonballs, rocks from the sky, and... lesser
creatures from other SFCSNOMS.
The fantastic journey has finally
come to an end. Stan has come to treasure both of them greatly,
but a decision has to be made.
The last person to turn in
his/her costume is....
Fat Momma. "You're an amazing
woman." She wishes Feedback the best. And speaking of which...
FEEDBACK IS THE WORLD'S NEWEST
SUPERHERO! Yet all he can do is stand there dumbfounded.
Until.... "WHOOOOOOO!!!!" He's soon joined by his wife, family,
friends and the rest of the contestants. Speech! Speech!
"Every dream you have ever had is
possible!" he says to an adoring public. "Stan will not regret
this decision." Fat Momma is soon rejoined by her friends and
family. And Stan?
"One thing I love is a happy
ending. Good night, good luck, and Excelsior!" This as the TV
blacks out... and Stan joins the crowd!
Congratulations to Feedback. The
end for us... the beginning for him?
"To be continued..."
Excelsior, true believers. Masked
