Actor Dean Cain turns 46 today. In the 1993-1997 ABC series Lois and
Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Cain perfectly played an
updated version of the superhero. While the show embraced many elements
of the traditional Superman mythos, the major twist was the
portrayal of Clark Kent as the "real person", and the Superman identity
as a disguise. As he said in one episode, "Clark Kent is who I am...
Superman is what I can do."
