Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

Weekdays 2pm-6pm

BEIJING, CHINA - FEBRUARY 24: People walks under a poster of Superman during a ceremony to launch a joint venture to sell cut-rate DVDs on February 24, 2005 in Beijing, China. Warner Home Videos set up a joint venture with the state-owned company China Audio Video, becoming the first U.S. studio to distribute and market cut-rate DVDs inside China in a bid to compete on the counterfeiters' home turf.

As I was preparing for today’s radio show on ESPN Southwest Florida, I came across a fact that today is the anniversary of Christopher Reeve’s passing in 2004.  Naturally I thought we’d do Superman Trivia on Wiki-Pete-ia on the Shemon and Sheppard Show .

In case you are not fortunate enough to be lucky caller number nine at 239-337-ESPN, then you are in luck!  Play at home and dazzle your family!  Stump your co-workers with useless knowledge!  Amaze your friends with your newfound intelligence!  Below are the actual questions AND ANSWERS heard during Wiki-Pete-ia on our show.

Christopher Reeve was an iconic actor but he will always be known for his leading role as Superman.  He had many super powers that he used time and time again to save humanity against evil.  He could fly, had superhuman strength, x-ray vision, speed, and enhanced hearing, just to name a few powers.  However, my favorite scene was in the first Reeve Superman movie when he encircles Earth so fast that he makes our planet turn in the opposite direction, turning back time so he could save love interest Lois Lane.

So if you like comics then dive into Superman Trivia on Wiki-Pete-ia.

Good luck to you!
