Charlie Sheen is a super hero. There I said it, no taking it back. Why now you ask? Because we’ve had time to digest what occurred one year ago. For those who don’t remember or were not caught up in the Made for TMZ television special (shame on you if you weren’t) here is a brief summary:
Jan. 30, 2011 – CBS shuts down “Men” again for Sheen to go to rehab, only this time he claims he’s using a home-based program
Feb. 14, 2011 – On an appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show,” Sheen says he’s ready to go back to work but CBS won’t let him
Feb. 24, 2011 – Sheen trashes “Men” creator Chuck Lorre on the syndicated “The Alex Jones Show;” CBS and Warner Bros. cancel season eight of “Men”
Feb. 25 to March 2, 2011 – An increasingly erratic Sheen appears on NBC, ABC, CNN, a slew of syndicated newsmagazines and more proclaiming that he has “tiger blood and Adonis DNA” and threatening to sue CBS over the shutdown of “Men”
March 5, 2011 – Sheen presides over his own webcast, which draws more than 1 million viewers
March 7, 2011 – CBS and Warner Bros. fire Sheen for “felony offenses involving moral turpitude”
So you ask what are his super powers? Every super hero needs to have something stronger than anyone else. Agreed, and for Sheen his super power is media monopolization.
