The Perfect Man Of Steel: Composite Of All Superman Actor's Faces

August 5, 2013


This is a composite shot of all Superman actors' (Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, Brandon Routh, and Henry Cavill) faces blended together by Redditor morphinapg. That's, uh, that's one handsome face. Is it getting steamy in here or are my underwear just moist because I spilled something?

Thanks to lilco, who told me if Superman was ugly people probably wouldn't like him as much and that's just the sad truth.

  • Collin Harvey

    Needs more George Reeves.

    Looks like Routh. Guess he'd be the perfect candidate. I like Cavill but his face is too pointy. His action figures look like cutting tools. But yeah, I agree the picture needs to be cleaned up. Is he part robot?

  • Becca Haynes

    There is this cool thing where as more faces are averaged together, the more symmetrical results also have larger eyes, which makes them appear younger and more attractive than any of the individual faces alone.

    In addition, this doesn't look anything like Dean Cain because he is the outlier; the other three guys have very similar features, while Dean is part Japanese, giving him darker features than the others. He is one part-Asian against three very European guys with lighter eyes, he gets less representation in the final product.

    Finally, that gray swoop on the forehead is because of the varying hairstyles leaving black curl remnants. It could have been cleaned up- I feel- without losing the integrity of the merge.

    did someone drew a dick on his forehead?

  • Richard H Sanford

    I don't know about a dick, but couldn't whoever did all the digital imaging clean it up? It looks like the band from a pair of swimming goggle to me.

  • Ry Keener

    He looks like he's 17 years old.

  • Bubbubsky

    Yep. Way, way too youthful-looking (and I know it's a composite).
    Still, for me, Reeve is the best Superman. He was old enough, acted the part well enough, and owned the role. There is no other.

  • YipYap

    Looks like Chris Reeve and Routh. The others must be generic enough to disappear into the face.

  • Anodos

    Or, yknow....they all look like Superman? BY SOME SORT OF STRANGE COINCIDENCE
