^^ LOL. They must be a very possession oriented society. I think most of the citizens have their family crest emblazoned on their clothing. At least in the New Krypton retcon they did.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I assume it's like that episode of Seinfeld where the mayor's aide suggested that everyone in New York where a name badge, but instead of it ending his career, he was elected Emperor of Kandor.

Fun fact: that particular take on Krypton makes drawing Kryptonians a kind of a pain in the ass because you have to come up with all these different symbols (and for the women, figure out how to pencil it over the topography of their breasts at all sorts of dumb angles, which is really annoying). Poor Gary Frank.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

they did in the Reeve movies also. I think Marlon Brando wanted the S on his costume to mirror the S on Superman's outfit.

Kryptonians seemed like an enigmatic bunch though. they knew of the "various concepts of immortality" but couldn't stop a star from exploding.

^ We're talking about the Donner Verse.


@Myasischev yeah Frank and the other artists after him had to come up with the symbols that weren't used in the movies. What I like about what Johns did though is that he incorporated all incarnations of Krypton that we have seen. The Golden Age/the Bryne era with the green robes and puffy white piping, etc.

Pic from the set...cape with no shield.
Never cared for the \S/ on the cape, so I won't miss it. Damn, though, that cape is long!

I know I'm probably alone in this, but I never cared for the idea of every family on Krypton having their own "family crest" (and naturally Clark's is the only one that looks like a letter in our alphabet. lol)

I preferred the idea that Birthright seemed to put forth, where the S shield was the official crest for all of Krypton. Seems a bit less contrived, and it also allows Superman to represent his entire home planet instead of just one family.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

The Kryptonians already have a flag, though. An obscenely ugly flag, but a flag nonetheless.

I don't mind it looking like an S. With the multiplicity of writing systems on Earth, it was bound to look like something, and it's easy to imagine its similarity to an S inspired the name "Superman," rather than the other way around.

If was pointy and looked like it had wings, would Clark Kent have become a bat?

Did he ever have an S on the cape in the movies or on TV? I never noticed, so I probably never cared either.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Happy Birthday to Amy! Regarding New Krypton and the flags, it was retconned the current head of the military guild has the honor of having their crest emblazoned on the Council temple as well as Kandor (since it was the only surviving city thanks to Brainiac) was recognized as the flag of New Krypton and I think incorporated all the caste colors in it. I really loved the fact that Johns reconciled previous incarnation of Krypton and created one rich culture.


The yellow S on the back of the cape has been featured on both "Lois and Clark" and "Smallville" from very early one. Clark sees it as his future when he touches the seerer Cassandra in I think season two. It was not featured in Superman Returns for the reasons given earlier in the thread but was on the Reeves suit.

You can see a comparison of the costume over the years up to SR.

[edit]@AY I know they showed the cape with the yellow & black shield in "Hereafter" in S3 when Jordan Cross touched Clark...Jordan is the guy who could see people's final moments before they die. The ep with Cassandra was S1...but I don't remember seeing it in that ep...I believe all Clark saw when she touched him was an endless graveyard.

I honestly can't tell if this is you keeping up with your negative Nancy attitude, or if you've just progressed into flat-out misogyny.
