Per The Hollywood Reporter, two comic scribes are making history — History Channel shows, to be exact.

First, comics legend Stan Lee will co-host a show with Daniel Browning Smith called Stan Lee’s Superhumans. Smith, also known as “Rubberboy,” is a contortionist. Cue the Mr. Fantastic jokes now. Lee and Smith will be looking for “people who have remarkable abilities because of being genetically different,” the trade reports. It’s set to debut in the third quarter.

And in the fourth quarter, The History Channel will debut Brad Meltzer’s Decoded, where the Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Identity Crisis writer will decode “familiar symbols.” No other details were mentioned, but maybe you can slip in a question about it tomorrow when he answers questions on Twitter about his Buffy run.

Ugh. I’d be making a “that’s not history!” comment right now, but since The History Channel hasn’t been airing that many history-centric shows in a while, I’d feel like I was being redundant. That said, I’d love if Stan did a show that went through the real history of superheroes and their evolution in comic books, but I’m sure that’s never going to happen.
