One needs only look at the torrents of internet outrage that begin whenever a controversial casting announcement about an upcoming superhero film is made to understand the difficulties of playing such an iconic character. Unlike most roles, comic book roles come with a lot of baggage and expectations that can make a great performance seem only passable and a passable one seem downright awful.

Perhaps no role is more iconic than that of Superman, the caped crusader fighting for truth, justice, and the American way. With another DC franchise revolving around Superman now officially up and running, it’s time to look back at the brave men who have donned the Superman cape, or the Clark Kent glasses, and see which performances hold up best.
