HE REALLY IS SUPERMAN

Things are looking up for Christopher Reeve. Seven years after a horseback-riding accident left him paralyzed from the neck down, the 49-year-old actor has regained some movement and sensation in his hands and feet. "To be able to feel just the lightest touch is really a gift," Reeve tells People. Also, the Superman star can breathe on his own for 90 minutes at a time. An upcoming ABC special, Christopher Reeve: Courageous Steps, reportedly will document Reeve's progress.
