The Adventures of the Human Panda

For SUPER… we ask notable people to tell us what their superhero alter-egos would be, and our illustrators bring those characters to life.


Eddie Huang has gone from a hip hop fan in his youth to the owner of a wildly popular restaurant in NYC (BaoHaus) and the author of an insightful memoir from the perspective of an Asian American (Fresh Off the Boat). His growing fame got him a cooking show with Viceland (Huang’s World) as well as a TV series on ABC with the same name as his memoir. In short, the Washington, D.C. native has become one of the most unexpected celebrity chefs.

During a small slot in his busy schedule, we sat down with Eddie to get the details on his alter ego superhero. Watch above as he gets into his Human Panda persona.
