I was surprised this hadn't been done before, at least properly. It took eleven hours and I'm a little tired of these films now, but I think that comes naturally after such tedious work. Anyway, I hope everyone is satisfied with what I've archived and reviewed.

Note: Some of the .gifs are a bit heavy, so those of you with slower connections may want to be patient and conservative about opening them.

And there will be peace. There will be peace when the people of the world, want it so badly, that their governments will have no choice but to give it to them. I just wish you could all see the Earth the way that I see it. Because when you really look at it, it's just one world.

Reeve was essentially Silver Age Superman, at least that's what he was based off, and his feats and power fluctuations are definitely in support of that. There were a few things I omitted, such as Superman lifting Lois's car and hitting a baseball into the upper atmosphere, as they seemed redundant and not really impressive given the rest of what's been listed here.

As far as the comic adaptions go, not too much is different. Superman undoes the tornado Nuclear Man creates, puts together the Great Wall by hand, even the subway tunnels are still round... for some reason. As for the novelizations, I don't really intend on reading them to archive statements here, but the one for Superman III is supposed to be really good, so I may read that and take a few notes.

Added a few tidbits, corrected some grammatical issues and rearranged a few feats.

Terrific work. I think we all know Reeve Superman was an OP mother F'er.

Great work, but you should probably rename it "Respect: Christopher Reeve Superman".

Some of the things on those films were so out there... like the brick rebuilding vision or the memory erasing kiss.
