    Superman - What/who do you picture?

    I'm not going to post a poll because there are about a million choices. I am curious, when you hear the name "Superman", what do you picture in your head? What's the first image of the actual character? It can be of a particular actor in the suit (or even out), an image from a comic book artist, an animated version of the character, anything. Yes, it can even be Tom Welling in a t-shirt. I'm honestly curious what people will say. Please try to post a picture of your response. Keep the dimensions small if you can. I will post my answer at some point, but I don't want to influence anyone else's choice in the first post.

    I have to be honest it would be Christopher Reeve in the \S/uit from the 1978 movie.

    I said it in another thread, but probably the first image that comes to mind is Superman as drawn by Dan Jurgens (with short hair).

    It all goes back to my introduction to the character. If it were just real people, I'd go with Christopher Reeve.

    I absolutely love that it took until the 6th person before we got a duplicate. I gotta get more people in here. This is fun.

    Do you see a specific image of Tom Welling? Do you see him in costume? In one of his proto-suits? In the red jacket with blue t-shirt? It's come to my attention that some people, when they think of Superman, don't necessarily think of the costume as even being necessary. They think of the man/character. I'm just trying to get a clear picture of what that image is to you.

    Ditto.

    Jim Lee's Superman from stories like Hush and For Tomorrow also comes close (can't find suitable pics atm).

    I was looking for a screencap from the movie for this...but that image of Chris sums it up for me.
