Stan Lee's Superhumans
Full Name: Tim Friede
Hometown: Wisconsin, USA
Tim Friede has made himself into a human guinea pig by allowing some of the world's deadliest snakes to bite him and recording the results, in a quest to help reduce the 20,000 deaths that are caused by snakebites throughout the world each year.
Tim received his first snake bite age 5 from a garter snake. From that moment on he developed a passion for herpetology, which is the study of reptiles and amphibians.
Tim works at a python farm in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin. It's here that he regularly injects snake venom directly into his blood. He even claims to be able to survive the deadly bite of the black mamba, one of the most venomous snakes in the world.
If you think that people with superhuman abilities are only found in comic books or in Hollywood movies--think again.
