Christopher Reeve Superman wp

By
My second Superman wallpaper. As with the first I placed the S symbol in a celestial background. This time however I used an image of the man who, for my generation, truly was Superman. Christopher Reeve's portrayal of the Man of Steel was so perfect it's hard to imagine anyone else playing the role.

For the image I looked for specifically a shot of Reeve flying straight at the camera. I felt this was the most appropriate since the tag line of the original movie was "You will Believe a Man can Fly."

Christopher Reeve certainly made us all believe that.


Made with Photoshop Elements 8

Next up in my superhero wallpapers will be BATMAN BEYOND.

UPDATE: I gave the wallpaper a color upgrade. ENJOY!!!!
