The actual Superman was George Reeves who appeared weekly as we grew up in the 50's and 60's and held to the 1940's comic book theme about 'Justice' against Nazi's, criminals, all and every type of evil.
His recent news is on Youtube, reversing the findings of suicide to homicide.
Christopher Reeve was an effeminate substitute that displayed Hollyweird's Left Wing Liberalism and after e became a quadriplegic, was used again by the Left to justify 'Embryonic Stem Cell Research' and cures for his condition which brings us to Planned Parenthood and Abortion, thus, the Church being responsible for his demand for a cure. Not a credible Superman at all. [Note: He was no relation to George or Steeve Reeves who stared in Hercules, actually won the 1949 Mr.America before it was a hoax and married a countess and lived out his days to a ripe old age in a Swiss castle.
The recent Superman was back on track ad stuck to the comic book theme which the Left's critics did not like. I don't remember his name, but, 'Truth, Justice and the American Way' reappeared at a time in history that we need it!
