Who Wants To Be A Superhero, the new reality series involving Stan Lee, will premiere on Sci Fi on July 26.

Sci Fi is teaming with Lee and Bruce Nash's Nash Entertainment for the six-episode, one-hour weekly competition reality series that will challenge constestants to create their own superhero.

Lee and Nash appeared at NBC/Universal's press event on Friday.

The winner of the six-week competition will depicted in a new comic book created by Lee.

Here's how Sci Fi describes the show:

"In nationwide open casting calls, potential heroes will arrive in costume to prove their mettle -- revealing the true nature of their superhuman abilities and invoking the noble credos by which they live. From these thousands of hopefuls, Stan Lee will choose 11 finalists to move into a secret lair and compete for the opportunity to become a real-life Superhero!

"Finalists will leave their former lives behind and live as their brainchild heroes 24/7, all under Stan Lee's watchful eye. Each week, our aspiring heroes will be challenged with competitions designed to test their true superhero abilities. It's not all just leaping tall buildings in a single bound, a true Superhero will be tested for courage, integrity, self-sacrifice, compassion and resourcefulness. In the end, only one aspiring Superhero will have the strength and nobility to open the gates to comic book immortality."
