Stan Lee's Superhumans
Full Name: Tom Owen
Hometown: Birmingham, USA
In 2009 in Milan, nine trucks weighing a total of 30,000 pounds ran over American bodybuilder Tom Owen in quick succession, a fitting feat for the man known as the "Human Speed Bump."
Now 63 years old, Tom has dedicated his life to bodybuilding and power lifting, but it's the unique strength of his stomach and abdominal muscles that may earn him superhuman status.
Tom can apparently withstand the crushing force of heavyweight trucks driving over his stomach. However, this is not without serious risk: In the past, Tom has had his leg and ribs broken, punctured his lungs and was almost crushed to death when a truck remained on his stomach too long.
Daniel witnesses this amazing spectacle of strength firsthand.
If you think that people with superhuman abilities are only found in comic books or in Hollywood movies--think again.
