Christopher Reeve was a villain in the animated TV series South Park. His first appearance was in the episode "Krazy Kripples", but later appeared in episode "200". He was based on the real-life actor and activist of the same name.
He was voiced by the series co-creator Matt Stone.
In "Krazy Kripples", Christopher Reeve comes to town to promote stem cell research. In order to 'cure' his quadriplegia, he is shown sucking the fluids out of fetuses from a medical bio-hazard container. With each fetus he sucks dry, Reeves becomes healthier and more dependent on them for his developing super human strength.
In a reversal of character, Reeve becomes the villain when stem cell research is banned, making Gene Hackman, who portrayed the villain Lex Luthor, his rival become Hack-Man. He was eventually imprisoned by the passing of a law banning stem cell research in a manner similar to the end of the movie Superman II, trapped in a 2 dimensional Phantom Zone in outer space.
He makes another appearance in "200", as one of the celebrities suing South Park.
- While "200" had aired in 2010, the real-life Reeve died in 2004.
- In DVD commentaries it is stated that creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker had been developing the idea of a Christopher Reeve parody for several years but refrained from carrying it out due to its potentially contentious nature. The reason they decided to eventually go through with it was that they saw his appearance on Larry King Live in which he espoused what they considered to be an unwarranted sense of self-entitlement, especially in relation to people who were born with disabilities.
