TV's Superman of the 1990s comes to Israel and Armenia

Dean Cain, who's notable for playing Superman in the Lois & Clark TV series of the mid-90s, has taken up some good causes in the past decade or so. This time, it's coming to visit Israel at the Knesset on Wednesday:
Superman is coming to the Knesset.

Dean Cain, famous for his iconic portrayal of the Man of Steel in Lois and Clark, the New Adventures of Superman, will visit the Knesset this Wednesday to support Israel as the guest of MK Hilik Bar (Zionist Union).

Cain has come out in support of Israel in the past. He supported Israel's right to self-defense during Operation Protective Edge in 2014.

"If rockets were being fired from Mexico into my home town of San Diego, Americans wouldn't accept that for a minute, we'd be taking over that part of Mexico and making it part of California," Cain said on Fox and Friends during the conflict with the Hamas terrorist organization.
For this, he deserves a lot of credit and admiration, much like when Christopher Reeve visited Israel in the early 2000s prior to his death. And that's not all he's accomplished. He also produced a documentary about the Armenian Holocaust during World War One, and visited Armenia where got a medal of honor for it along with his co-producer from the country's president:
President Serzh Sargsyan on March 6 received producers of the documentary “Architects of Denial,” Dean Cain and Montel Williams, and their families.

The President shared his impressions from the film that premiered at Moscow Cinema on March 5, emphasizing its importance in the international recognition and condemnation of genocides, including the Armenian Genocide.

Sargsyan noted that although there is much discussion on the topic in scientific circles, there is a lack of documentaries, and the “Architects of Denial” fills the gap.

“The parallels between today’s reality and the events of 100 years ago are very important,” Serzh Sargsyan said. He pointed to the parallels between the Armenian Genocide and today’s developments in Nagorno Karabakh.
There's more on this at Asbarez. I think Cain's more or less a conservative politics supporter, and these sojourns he's taken certainly do prove he's dedicated to good causes. That's one of the reasons his role as the Man of Steel on television along with Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane can be well remembered. It's a pity the cast of the new Supergirl TV show, by sharp contrast, aren't supporting causes like these.
