My friend Matt Haley, the talented artist who did the breaks and covers on "Who Wants To Be A Super Hero?" season one, sent me an e-mail telling me the news I have been waiting to hear.

"Who Wants To Be A Super Hero?" has been renewed for a second season. YAY!

Here is the official Sci-Fi press release:

"SCI FI Channel has ordered up an expanded second season of its hit original reality series Who Wants to Be a Superhero?, starring Stan Lee. The second season, which is slated to air next summer, will expand from six to 10 one-hour episodes. The show is produced by Bruce Nash's Nash Entertainment and Lee's POW! Entertainment, Inc.

"Who Wants to Be a Superhero? was a success for us on many levels last summer," Mark Stern, SCI FI's executive vice president, original programming, said in a statement. "The show garnered great reviews, attracted a record-breaking number of younger viewers to the channel and held its own against some very stiff competition on Thursday nights."

The first season of Who Wants to Be a Superhero? averaged a 1.1 household rating (1.5 million total viewers), more than doubled the year-to-date time-period average among viewers aged 18-34, increased the number of 18-49 viewers by more than 74 percent and grew the 25-54 audience by more than 44 percent. "

How cool is that?

Now if we could only resurrect Blade, my life would be complete!
