The 50 greatest Superman moments

Got You

The Moment: In Superman: The Movie, our hero makes his first public appearance saving Lois Lane from certain death in a helicopter accident. "Easy miss, I've got you," he promises. "You've got me? Who's got you?!"

Why It's Great: The build-up, with its sublime sight gag about a modern phone box being a poor changing room, and the iconic shot of Clark Kent ripping open his shirt to reveal the 'S' underneath.
