    Of all the actors who've played Clark Kent/Superman in live-action, who looks the most like the character to you? Please note that I'm not talking about acting here, I'm just talking about who best fits your mental image of the character.

    Christopher Reeve, obviously. Anyone who says otherwise is mentally ill.

    The correct answer is Jon Hamm...

    If I saw Welling in a suit, I might have to vote for him. I mean, this photoshop job is pretty spectacular:

    But until he actually dons the Reds and Blues, I've gotta default to Reeve.

    Dean Cain is the spitting image of John Byrne's Superman. Most iconic still goes to Reeve though.

    BTW, who's the guy in the black t-shirt? I kid, I kid....

    It's funny, but I find Tom Welling looks the least like Superman. If Paul Gross were younger, I'd say he'd be a good pick for the next movie.

    Only the best portrayer of Clark Kent ever... and yes, that includes Reeve. :p

    Chris Reeve by far, Gary Frank's Superman even modeled his designs after him during his run with Geoff Johns.

    Gary Frank's designs are my favorite Superman designs since Curt Swan.

    Christopher, although I also love George R's performance.

    None of them. Superman should be huge. Given those choices, Tom Welling I guess?

    I will be stunned if Chris Reeve doesn't win this by a landslide.

    Agreed. I'm not voting until they come up with a real guy who looks like this.
