I have to say I agree.
dean cain was a good superman dammit
Hey... he has a point.
I can understand where this guy's coming from. I often find myself in the same position vis a vis Adam West's Batman. No one appreciates great art.
There's been a renaissance in Adam West appreciation in recent years. Maybe Dean Cain's time will come as well.
Won't *somebody* think of the Cain?
Whoa, finally one of these things where the kid actually makes sense.
Dean wasn't a very good Superman, but he was a damn fine Clark Kent. If the writing on Lois & Clark had been better he could have been much better in the role, too. He definitely had the whole all American boyscout thing down.
At least there was no spittle when he said it. /wink
Cain rose up...and slew Brandon Routh in every way.
Wow. There's a lot of love in this room today.
I totally agree with this guy. Lois and Clark was a pretty decent show. Dean Cain was a great Clark Kent. Then again, I typically hate Superman.
See? Now we know that we're not all cynical bastards. Most of the people from these comics are legitimate asstards. Just not this guy.
Watching Lois and Clark with my parents was my introduction to Superman (I was eight), so I have to give this guy props.
Eh. My wife has loved Lois & Clark since she watched it as a kid, so I've been made to suffer through it several times. Dean Cain always struck me as exemplifying the worst side of Superman: a smug, not-overly-bright, jerk-ass who is somehow completely emasculated by a shrieking, immature harpy.
(whispers) Dean Caiiiinnnnn ... (stops whispering) I have nothing but fond memories of Lois & Clark. I'm not totally sure if I ever knew Superman's origins before that point of my childhood, though to be fair I didn't really read much DC back then.

Shrieking, immature harpy? Teri Hatcher? What are you, some kind of Margot Kidder guy? Love a man in drag, do you?
Teri Hatcher was the best part of Lois & Clark. Mainly because she was smoking hot. It's sad that she appears to have melted since then.
@pengo: Margot Kidder was almost as annoying as Teri Hatcher (who is like nails on the chalkboard of my brain). Erica Durance is about the only tolerable Lois I've seen.
DC was the 2nd best Superman ever, after Christopher Reeves, hands down. And Teri Hatcher will always be my number one Lois Lane.
While I agree with most of the above about Dean Cain being fairly good, I still see the humor in the comic. How often have this guy and his friends had the pro/anti Cain conversation? He said "as usual" and "always" as if this is a common topic for them, but was Lois and Clark really such a good show that they still talk about it regularly almost 15 years after it got canceled?
That is pretty funny, Most Recent Anonymous Poster.I liked Dean Cain, but I'm biased, because I also grew up on Lois and Clark, and I, too, had a massive crush on Teri Hatcher.Thing about Dean Cain, though, I mean...he's good-looking and all, I'll admit it, but it's a very specific kind of ridiculous 90's sexy. Like he escaped from a Harlequinn cover or something.
Dean Cain was the best Superman ever...at the time. Then Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League/Unlimited blew him away. You want to see a real Superman, watch "Destroyer", the final episode of Justice League Unlimited. Then you'll understand why I maintain that the only way anyone should be allowed to write, direct, or star in a new Superman movie is if they've watched the entire DCAU first.
I actually enjoy the comics where I somewhat like the customer more than the ones with the jerks. Both are funny, but one doesn't make me want to slam my head into my keyboard. Also, shrieking emasculating harpy? Oh... kay...
Dean who? *googles*Oh, the guy from the send up of Superman.
I also agree with this kid. Dean Cain was a great Superman, and Lois and Clark was damned good as a Superman series with mass appeal. Sure, it went to complete crap in the last season, but you can't blame Cain for shit writing :-D
