International techno-pop and dance music recording artist, Sir Ivan can now add reality TV star to his list of accomplishments. Beginning July 26th at 9.00pm (EST) television viewers can see Sir Ivan's alter-ego "Mr. Mitzvah" in the new NBC Sci-Fi Channel series "Who Wants To Be A Superhero?"To kick off the series, Sir Ivan hosted a superhero themed costume party at his legendary Hampton's castle on Saturday July 21st. Hundreds of guests, including Oscar Nominated Silvia Miles, Ch 11 ace reporter Jill Nicolini, Emmy winner Rita Cosby, covergirl Cindy Guyer, singer-producer Tomaczek Bednarek and MSNBC producer Andrew Dallos with his beautiful wife Laurie. Media from around the globe got a sneak peek at the world premiere episode of the new series on a huge drive in screen behind the Castle, with food, drinks and superheros everywhere.Guests when they arrived received a superhero costume and were greated by champagne and anything else you could have wanted or even dreamed of. Sir Ivan provided luxury transportation from Midtown Manhattan to his Castle in the Hamptons for media and celebrity guests. In the show, Sir Ivan adopts the mantle of "Mr. Mitzvah," the world's first Jewish Superhero. He created the character to honor his late father Siggi B. Wilzig who was an Auschwitz survivor, and to promote Holocaust education for future generations. Says Sir Ivan: "I am asked all my guests to indulge their superhero fantasies and to come in costume as their favorite characters. The party is sure to impress Stan Lee, the genius who both created the show and the world's most famous comic book superheroes."Sir Ivan, the 51 year old philanthropist and heir to the Wilzig banking empire, is best known for his music career, scoring three consecutive Billboard hits including: "Imagine," "San Francisco," and "Peace On Earth." These songs, an unreleased version of Bob Dylan's "Blowin' In The Wind" and his newest single, a remake of the Buffalo Springfield classic "For What It's Worth," will be available in July on iTunes through his global Internet label PEACEMAN MUSIC.For almost a decade Sir Ivan has carried the mantle of "Peaceman" -- recognizable by his elaborate capes encrusted with crystal peace symbols. He says he hopes through his music and his appearances he can encourage people to focus on peace instead of war, love instead of hate. "We live in very dangerous and deadly times. I want to use my power as an entertainer to project positive healing energy," says Sir Ivan.
