    That is a cool video.

    Christopher Reeve will always be THE Superman in my book.

    Although I did think Dean Cain pulled it off ok.

    The new guy just looks like such a puss tho.

    Wow! That is one cool tribute to every version of Superman that has been & will be!

    I will always be partial to George Reeves Superman, since he is the one I grew up watching.

    They did a good job for the time of making him look real when he was flying.

    Long Live Superman!

    That is an awesome tribute, very well done. He even ended it with the humble nature of the man contrasted by the bitchin' Lois that Margot Kidder captures perfectly. Nice job of editing done to compliment the song.

    I never really listened to that song before (I've heard it, but never paid attention to the lyrics... and caught the obvious references to Superman but never realized the song was really ABOUT him).

    ANYWAYS, despite that, I still have to ask... why? I mean, it's a video montage tribute to... a fictional character? Not someone specific PLAYING the character, whcih is understandable, especially after the untimely and tragic death of Christopher Reeve, but just the character itself. Don't get me wrong, it was a decent video, I just don't really get the purpose of it.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    Some people like yourself say it's just a fictional character. Others like to think of it as a part of american culture.

    Just like some people ask why do we (audiophiles) devote so much time to this stuff. It's just stupid speakers! Then their are others that feel it's part of our culture to enjoy the finer things in life and speakers are part of it.

    To each their own. I liked the video! Superman rocks!

    Ya know, Margot Kidder wasnt really that hot by any means like the real Lois was supposed to be but she really had the attitude down perfect and basically defined the character as far as Im concerned.

    Terri Hatcher did a pretty good job and while she wasnt as good an actress with the flair of Kidder, she is smoooooookin' hot and thats cool too!

    The Season 1 and 2 DVD's are great! Jack Larson (Jimmy Olsen) and Noel Neill (Lois Lane) provide commentaries on several episodes for Season 2 - well worth buying the set just to enjoy that!

    I'm not a huge Superman fan but that was awesome. I was nearly in tears by the end.
