Never-Before-Released Super Hero Created in 2000 by Stan Lee and Marvel Animator Will Meugniot Uncovered by Former Marvel Comics Publisher Shirrel Rhoades
Boca Raton, Florida, April 25, 2022 — McapMediaWire — CYIOS Corp’s: (OTC PINK: CYIO) wholly owned subsidiary Immortals Group PTY in collaboration with SLH Ltd announced today the lost spider-man parody Slam-Girl to debut as a limited edition NFT collection anticipated to be released in May. In the year 2000, Stan Lee co-created Slam-Girl with Marvel animation and comic book artist Will Meugniot, reinventing the super hero in the form of a female parody of Spider-Man. In 2017, SLH Ltd (HK) acquired the rights to the unknown super hero character franchise and approached former Marvel Comics publisher, and Lee’s personally-appointed successor, Shirrel Rhoades, to spearhead sharing this super hero secret with the world. Curated by Rhoades, the Slam-Girl CYBERspace Collection will be offered to the public by Immortals Group. Rhoades has a long history in the publishing world as writer, publisher, author, filmmaker, syndicated film critic, comics scholar, comics historian, former college professor and former museum president.
An introduction to Slam-Girl: In 2000, at the dawn of the Internet Age, Stan Lee and his Hollywood-based Internet animation studio of 150 artists, writers and flash animation wizards, were experimenting with reinventing the Superhero genre by parodying his 1960’s Spider-Man creation with interactive animation storytelling on the Internet. It was at this studio that not only was Slam-Girl created, but also lost in time due to the dot-com meltdown. As conceived by Stan and co-creator Will Meugniot, Slam-Girl was a 20-something, anti-superhero slacker whose encounter with radioactive-contaminated Old Spider Bite Lite Beer imbued her with an array of superpowers she very reluctantly embraced. Stan was convinced that the millennial culture was ready for a Superhero upgrade – now as a budding feminist.
Mr. Shirrel Rhoades, Curator of the Slam-Girl NFT CYBERspace Collection, commented, “The original story and character of Slam-Girl was nearly doomed, due to the dotcom meltdown and demise of the original studio in early 2001. Since that time, the untold story of this amazing super hero remained quietly undiscovered for years until acquired by a private collector in 2017. The owner had reached out to me and asked that I review the collection of assets and IP, upon which I stumbled upon Slam-Girl. This was a historic find – that Stan created a parody successor to Spider-Man was something very few people knew. We needed to identify the perfect artist to take the character and story from circa 2000 Web 2.0 into the metaverse and Web 3.0. I reached out to the one person who was most qualified to work with us on the project, Will Meugniot, the original artist and co-creator of the franchise with Stan. Will was the perfect choice to be Director of art and NFT artist of the Slam-Girl CYBERspace collection. This collection is distinct from all other works created by Stan, and contains numerous franchises with dozens of never before released characters and stories.”
“The first drop consists of 10,000 NFTs (PFP), with additional drops being developed and planned for the lucky holders. We have a lot to be excited about as our long-term roadmap and utility list is quite robust. In the coming weeks, we look forward to sharing additional details of our future plans for the Slam-Girl collection including additional utility, airdrops, as well as announcing future NFT’s from the CYBERspace collection of assets developed by Stan Lee Media between 1999-2001. Slam-Girl is the first of numerous franchises to be developed with the aim to build a community that thrives for years to come,” concluded Mr.Rhoades.
