I was discussing Superman actors with someone the other day and I got to wondering about the height and weight of the various actors who've portrayed him. Anyone got the stats on that? I think Reeve was 6'4" and uh...yeah that's all I really know. Also, does Superman have an official size and weight?

DC usually lists Superman as 6'3" and 235 lb. Which is ridiculous. They typically draw him looking around 7 feet tall and, at that height, if you know anything about bodybuilding, he'd be well over 350 lb.

Even AT 6'3", Superman's bodyweight would be a LOT more than 235 lb.(given how big he is usually drawn). The man's freaking huge.

Incidentally, DC lists John Henry Irons as 6'10" or 7' ... and they've always drawn Superman to be around JHI's height.
