I'm sure we all know the S symbol on Superman's chest is in reality the crest for the House of El, the Kryptonian family to which the infant Kal-El belonged, and his cousin Kara Zor-El too of course!  In the just-released Supergirl tv show trailer Kara briefly references the symbol's family origin (see here.)  But did you know (I didn't, until recently!) that in the 2003 comicbook "Superman: Birthright" the crest was further explained to be based on the Krypton pictogram for the word "hope"..?

Hmm... I thought to myself... hmm...  that gives me an idea for a bit of fun..! Wink/Razz

What do you think of the trailer, btw?  Does is give you hope?  :D (Big Grin)

 You know..this show has been my dream since that flop I saw from the Supergirl movie back in 2003 (thou its been out waaay longer). I hope it goes as well as I think it will because I REALLY want this chick to get the LIGHT she deserves beside her cousin! I mean I know I'm a 90s baby and don't know much still about Kara's story but I know enough that she could beat the brakes off of Superman if she had the intention (not mind controlled, literally bloodlust) and plus the fact she was trained by EVERYBODY..yeah-thou I doubt they'll show her getting the training from Bruce and Diana in this show-she's still badass.

Very creative! You should print them on posters. You would make a killing.

The trailer indeed gives me hope 5red :) I love what I've seen for Melissa B. as both Kara and Supergirl. She's just like a perfect blend of caring, desire to help people, and just she comes off as really being in sync with who Kara is. 

Great work with the pic!
