Stan Lee's Superhumans
Man of Steel
Full Name: Dan Meyer
Hometown: Birmingham, USA
Dan Meyer hails from Alabama, where he reigns as one of the best sword swallowers in the world.
Dan claims that being a sword swallower is no party trick and that the secret actually lies in his superhuman ability to control his body's automatic responses to the sword being pushed down his throat. His near-death experience, when he punctured his stomach while swallowing seven swords at once, demonstrated what happens when you lose control over these muscles.
Dan says that he's able to swallow 15-inch razors, hedge clippers and even curved blades that nudge his heart out of the way as they pass by.
Daniel investigates Dan's body to see what sets this man apart.
