Farewell, Christopher Reeve

A nice eulogy, better than I can produce, from Mark Evanier on the passing of Christopher Reeve.

A phrase I've always believed in, unfortunately associated with the Nazis thanks to Leni Riefenstahl, is "triumph of the will." Most superhuman efforts have little to do with physical strength, but everything to do with desire. If you saw any interviews with Reeve after his accident, you saw a man determined to walk again. Only death itself forestalled him.
