Congers, NY (June 17, 2008) – If আপনি thought She-Hulk and Wonder Woman were impressive, just wait until আপনি meet the real-life powerhouses Venom and Phoenix from NBC’s “American Gladiators” at Wizard World Chicago.

Beth Horn shed her skin to become one of the most feared warriors in Gladiator Arena. Now as Venom, she stalks her prey with caution and strikes when it is least expected. Any opponent that faces her had better come prepared because there is no known antidote for Venom, who is lethal in any dose.
Making her debut this season, the beautiful and bewitching Jennifer “Phoenix” Widerstrom is as impossible to defeat as her mythical namesake. And just when a competitor has fooled herself into believing she’s got a chance, this dangerous bird of prey rises with talons fully extended to shred anyone into submission.
“American Gladiators” debuted in January of 2008 and was an instant success. Hosted দ্বারা legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan and professional মুষ্টিযোদ্ধা Laila Ali, the প্রদর্শনী matches amateur athletes against each other and the show's gladiators in contests of strength, agility and endurance. The competitive program, now in its সেকেন্ড season, is a revival of the immensely জনপ্রিয় original series that ran from 1989 to 1996 in syndication.
