Cain has already spoken out about his support of our men and women in uniform. Prior to the ceremony, he told The Daily Caller that, although he is proud of his time as Superman, he is happy to don the uniform of the real heroes.
“Real heroes don’t wear capes. Real superheroes wear uniforms and insignia and the white coats,” he said. “Real super heroes are the members of our military, police and first responders.”
As People reports, part of Cain’s duties will include together with his former “CHiPs” co-star, Erik Estrada, to help in the fight against online predators and bullying for the “Kids” initiative.
“Lois and Clark” ran for four seasons between 1993 and 1997. In the Cain starred alongside Teri Hatcher as the duo defeated a number of the comic book hero’s biggest threats. Cain has worked consistently in film and TV roles since then, even returning to the world of DC Comics for guest roles on The CW’s “Supergirl.”
