Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
DC Entertainment Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee will appear with a half-dozen DC creators on the Jan. 22 episode of Face Off, the Syfy competition series that pits special-effects makeup artists against each other.
The episode, shot in July at Comic-Con International, challenges the competitors to create their own superheroes with assistance and advice from Lee, Mark Buckingham, Cliff Chiang, Tony S. Daniel, David Finch, Nicola Scott and J.H. Williams III. The winning design will be featured in Justice League Dark #16, which goes on sale Jan. 30.
On Face Off, contestants are whittled down each week until only one remains. The winner receives $100,000, a 3013 Fiat 500 and a change to become a guest lecturer at the Make Up For Ever academies in New York City and Paris.
The DC Comics/superhero episode airs Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy.
