Stan sends Daniel to meet four people who can control their perception of pain, and push their bodies to unthinkable levels.
Despite creating many fictional pain-proof characters in his comics, Stan never thought real people could possess immunity to pain—until he met four individuals whose staggering tolerance challenges the known limits of the the human body.
Eduardo Lasaga claims he can withstand extreme amounts of bone-crunching weights on his body. Evgeny Kuznetsov withstands the excruciating pain of dozens of darts penetrating his flesh, but he also doesn't shed a drop of blood. Matthew Ahmet claims he's trained his body to tolerate the same level of pain as the ultimate shaolin warriors. Li Xin's demonstration of skull strength is almost too gruesome to watch, and he claims he's developed a superhuman head that is virtually indestructible.
Stan's comic-book character's bodies had physically shocking features and gruesome modifications, enabling them to perform incredible feats.
Check out the search for real people with the extraordinary ability to do seemingly superhuman things, including a man who claims he can partially swallow a jackhammer and then turn it on.
Daniel Browning Smith investigates rumors of an entire family in Vietnam that claim to be shock proof. John Doyle has a real-life ability to control his eyes like a chameleon. Thomas Blackthorne claims he can insert a jackhammer down his throat and then turn it on. Stevie Star claims he can swallow objects and regurgitate them in any order he chooses. Ryan Stock puts a meat hook through his skull and attempts to pull weights that will push human bone strength to the limit.
The competition reaches new heights.
