He made us believe a man could fly...

Lois: "Any more at home like you?"
Clark: "Uh, not really, no."

Indeed. Rest well, Chris...

Christopher Reeve

From Dan Jurgens' legendary Superman #75 (1992):

"But most will remember this sad day as the day the proudest, most noble man they ever knew finally fell. For those who loved him -- one who would call him husband, one who would be his pal, or those who would call him son -- this is the darkest day they could ever imagine. They raised him to be a hero: to know the value of sacrifice, to know the value of life. And for those who served with Superman in the protection of all life comes the shock of a failure: the weight of being too late to help. For a city to live, a man had given his all and more. But it's too late. For this is the day that a Superman died."
