RIP Her quirky, flawed, funny, and strong willed take on Lois Lane was the best.

RIP. I remember going to see the original "Superman" at the theater when I was a little kid. The "Amytiville Horror" used to scare me! Always thought she was cool.

Love is God, God is love, girls and boys love God above.
RIP Sweet Prince
