August 23, 2014: Super Robin Williams TributePrint

Robin and Chris As everyone knows, earlier this month the world mourned the death of Robin Williams. Many Superman fans know that Robin Williams and Christopher Reeve were very close friends. While I did post a quick message on both Twitter and Facebook at the time, the fan art shown here (by Cynthia Sousa) caught my eye today, and I felt it deserved to be posted here as a tribute to both men, who made our lives so much better through their talents.

In his book "Still Me", Christopher Reeve related a few stories about Robin Williams...

    "The first person I met at Juilliard was the other advanced student, a short, stocky, long-haired fellow from Marin County, California, who wore tie-dyed shirts with track suit bottoms and talked a mile a minute. I'd never seen so much energy contained in one person. He was like an un-tied balloon that had been inflated and immediately released. I watched in awe as he virtually caromed off the walls of the classrooms and hallways. To say that he was 'on' would be a major understatement. There was never a moment when he wasn't doing voices, imitating teachers, and making our faces ache from laughing at his antics. His name, of course, was Robin Williams."

And then, after his horse riding accident in which he suffered severe spinal injury, Christopher Reeve relates this story about lying in the hospital ICU...

    "As the day of the operation drew closer, it became more and more painful and frightening to contemplate. In spite of efforts to protect me from the truth, I already knew that I had only a fifty-fifty chance of surviving the surgery. I lay on my back, frozen, unable to avoid thinking the darkest thoughts. Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately. My first reaction was that either I was on way too many drugs or I was in fact brain damaged. But it was Robin Williams. He and his wife, Marsha, had materialized from who knows where. And for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay."

Their deaths, ten years apart, saddened us all...but their lives brought us so much joy.

That's a nice piece of art.

Reeve's death was a tragedy. Williams's was a waste.

It sucks.

Two legends gone who could have offered much more to us with their selfless selves if they were still alive today.

Thank you so much for touching our lives with your talent.

This is a lovely fan art, although when I think of Reeve and Williams, I think Superman and Popeye.

I had never known the connection between these two until Robin's passing. Rest in Peace both of you.

Indeed, Hypoxic.

When I think of Reeve and Williams, I think of Superman and Peter Pan ( from Hook).

R.I.P. Robin William, he is one of my favorite actors, including Christopher Reeve, of course.

Nice Tribute picture but it would be cool if Robin William, as Peter Pan, could have been flying along Christopher Reeve's Superman!

R.i.P. Robin Williams, you will be missed always.

I'm glad to see you post this Steve, I had not seen this piece of artwork. Two men who loved each other and touched our lives forever. Robin Williams will always be the Genie in Aladdin for me, a sense of humor and vision operating at warp speed. Chris will always be the man who made us believe a man could fly. It was more than just a movie, he was Superman.

Superman and Mork were there two break out roles, hence the artwork depicting them as such.

And did not Mork act Super heroish in an episode or two?
