I root for Steven Seagal as his replacement.

I've never read any of the Superman books, just a few here and there... but I always bought the issues in which he's a guest star, even from series' I don't even read, whenever he's in a side book his mere presence commands authority, and just fills you with an awe. The world's most powerful boy scout, the exact epitome of justice and good will. The only time I've felt the same awe, was when I was a child and I watched Superman for the first time. That's why I read those side books, in hopes of feeling that same emotion I got when I was a kid, seeing Christopher Reeves kick ass for truth, justice, and the American way.

He was truely Superman. And he will be greatly missed, I was hoping he would become a real Superman and learn to walk before his death. Nonetheless he will be missed, I only hope that future generation of silver screen Supermen will leave the same mark he left on me, when I was a child.

R.I.P. Supes

ahhh bummer
Usually I don't a lot of good thing to say whenever I talk about Christopher Reeve, but seeing how much he has done after the accident, it is still tragic that he died.

May god rest his soul.

"The original Superman" was George Reeves, who played Superman on a 50s TV show. In 1978, when the first Superman movie came out, the TV show was still fairly well-known, at least to Americans.

When i heard about his death on the radio this morning, i thought it quite ironic.

Yesterday, my family and i were talking about fetus research and how Christopher Reeve supported it because he wanted to do anything to walk again. But his dream never came true, he died before it got anywhere.

52 is quite young to die too.. from an infected bed sore... poor soul.

Here's to you Chris.

What happened was he got a bed sore (from lieing in one position too long, i'm sure you know how it's caused), and it got extremely infected. That triggered cardiac arrest. The bed sore was how it started.

*sniff* Poor Superman...



Though every death is sad, Reeves was really doing a lot of work to help out other people with the same affliction as him. I was really hoping Reeves would walk again but alas, that day will never come.

I miss John Ritter too.

I started out reading American comics, before I got into anime. So of course I've read almost every single Superman comic. And watching the movies was really great as a kid, because you could see your favorite super heros come to life. Christopher Reeve's work as a hero to almost every single American child from 1980 until now, is unmeasureable. I doubt if there is a single child who doesn't know who Superman is, or atleast have an idea about him. It's those roles and those movies that get remembered. So here's to the greatest American Hero EVER!

Apparently you've never seen the movie "The Iron Giant." I suggest you do so immediately.
