As I mentioned yesterday, my rules here include caricaturing the actor as they looked onscreen as Superman when they first appeared as the character, including the year on the chest. Reeves’ first appearance was in the 1951 theatrical film “Superman and the Mole Men”, which served as a “pilot” of sorts for the television series “The Adventures of Superman” (1952-1958), which also starred Reeves.
Although the later seasons of the TV show where filmed in color, they did not appear in color to the public until the show was in syndication in 1965. Thus, I went with the black and white version.
