Snoopy Magneto

Oh dear Lord...

MTV has opened applications for a new reality show, the premise of which will involve a group of fans who have designed their own super hero characters. Here’s the rub though – the finalists will live together in a house as their hero, and compete against celebrity villains for the grand prize – having their character published in a comic book. According to the production company, a “Legendary Comic Book Creator” is involved.

Each week on the show, contestants will be pitted against villains in tests of their “super powers.”

The show will be casting in Los Angeles, and will shoot in February. Fans of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities and personalities are sought.

More information, and an application, can be found at: http://www.whowantstobeasuperhero.tv/

And that's not going to assist the general perception of comic readers at all, will it?

It's called Season's Beatings.
