S2E3 – Mr. Mitzvah’s Dick Smasher

Oops! Uh oh! We thought season 3 was good but it turns out if you take a rotten brown apple and apply a lovely coat of beautiful expensive red paint, you still get sick when you take a bite. In fact, the paint would probably make it worse! This is a metaphor for how it feels to watch season 2 episode 3 of WWTBAS: it looks so much like a real show that it hurts all that much more when you see what unacceptable horrors Stan has in store for his poor helpless victims who just wanted to run around…

S2E2 – Bee Attitude 🎷🐝

Okay, first of all, I want to apologize in advance for all the bee puns. I tried to stop it, but it just kept happening. I didn't try very hard, but I did try, so now you can't bee mad about it! Anyway, it's season 2 episode 2. It's the makeover episode! But wait, you say, wouldn't it be a waste to get rid of all these cool costumes? Yes! It would! Don't worry, Stan has a special trick up his sleeve to make the new costumes absolutely necessary. Sam | Val | Gigalithic Twitter

S2E1 – Don’t Wear Glasses, Don’t Go to College

Welcome to season 2! We've got eight beautiful episodes produced with a budget of eight beautiful dollars, which in both cases is two more than last season. How will a 25% increase in resources help the show? Quite a bit, it turns out! It's actually pretty alright, despite three of our ten contestants being uhhhhhh. You'll see!

S1E6 – Feedback Busts It Open

Hey kids, stop watching Dog Vision Live, it's time for the season 1 finale of Who Wants to Be a Superhero! Don't worry about changing the channel, Stan will take care of that for you! In this surprisingly low-action, low-drama, low-stakes finale, we mostly just hang out at Stunts Camp and then go to a party at CityWalk. At least there's some very good 2006 CGI along the way!

S1E5 – Punch the Hidden Nazi

The superheroes are going back to school! We're joined by Alec, the Human Porch himself, to discuss episode 5 which is allegedly titled "The Rise and Fall of the Superhero Empire". How will the superheroes fare against a bunch of children? Probably very well! Also, the show finally figures out its stupid theme on episode 5 of 6! Well, better late than never!

S1E4 – Beautiful Fruit Bowl Moments

This week on a truly rancid episode of Who Wants to Be a Superhero? the heroes are degraded and humiliated by their friends and families before being forced to degrade and humiliate some actors pretending to be prisoners. It just goes to show you, there are no rules, and every choice is a conscious choice. Content warning for brief discussion of suicide for about 30 seconds starting at 1:16:05.

Hot on the heels of last week's episode where the heroes were given a test of courage and a test of reality show drama, the heroes are given a test of courage and a test of reality show drama.

S1E2 – Spread It

On this week's episode of Who Wants to Get Attacked by Dogs? the superheroes get attacked by dogs. They also write rude notes to each other and get a makeover. What a show! One of the superheroes even gets a new name by mistake! Wow! You're not gonna see anything like this on any other reality show - and according to the pre-challenge disclaimer, you shouldn't be seeing it here either. Ah well, everyone makes mistakes.
