Superhuman: Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee had many superhuman abilities.

Born in 1940 in San Francisco’s Chinatown, Bruce Lee lived a short, full, remarkable life until dying from a cerebral edema caused by Equagesic prescription medication in 1973 in Hong Kong’s Kowloon Tong.

Bruce Lee grew up in Kowloon, Hong Kong and was a young thug in a street gang called “The Tigers of Junction Street” until he was taught kung fu in 1953 by Master Yip Man.

Bruce taught Jeet Kune Do (The Way of the Intercepting Fist) and also used to chew Nepal Hashish (a strong form of marijuana). He was an avid reader with a collection of over 2,000 books.

Chuck Norris was a pallbearer at Bruce Lee’s funeral. Bruce Lee helped Chuck Norris break into the film industry.
