If we're being honest with ourselves, everyone has dreamt of being a superhero at least once in their life, especially since the Marvel Cinematic Universe came along and tricked us all into forking over a buttload of cash every few months to see what happens next. But very few of us have gone out of our way to actually try to make it happen.

Of course, most of us are not The Good Place's lovable doofus Jason Mendoza (Manny Jacinto), who thinks trapping a spider in his hands while getting an MRI in Thursday's brand new episode, "The Brainy Bunch," will give him superpowers.

In the episode, Jason and the rest of the gang, which now includes that sneaky jerk Trevor (Adam Scott), take part in Chidi's (William Jackson Harper) experiment to test their moral instincts after their near-death experiences. Check out Jason's full plan in all its ridiculous but surprisingly ambitious glory in the sneak peek above, and tune in Thursday to see if it actually works.
