Christopher Reeve bulked up over 40lb of muscle mass to play Superman with the help of David Prowse. Superman and Darth Vader were gym buddies.

Superman was originally a vigilante fighter and in one instance was fired upon by the National Guard after he destroyed a slum to force the government to build better housing for the poor. He was also often depicted using lethal force and attacking wife beaters, profiteers, and lynch mobs.

Actor Jason Segel said that until he was 12 years old, he wore Superman cape concealed under his clothes. Whenever his parents asked him why, he always told them “just in case.”
