Phil, I really love this, I really do. But why did you go with kingdom come symbol? It doesn't even look like an S.

I disagree, I remember reading an interview with Alex Ross, the artist who worked on Kingdom Come where this version of the Superman logo was first seen, where he explains that when he looked at early Superman logos from 1938 the S wasn't touching the triangular frame and as the years went by the triangular frame became a diamond shape and it seemed like they were zooming in on the S making it look squashed against the frame so he figured that the future Superman logo would be even more zoomed in on the S so we're effectively seeing only the middle of it blended into the frame so it is an S or part of one.

And that is why it's great! It's not supposed to be an S! It's the Kryptonian symbol for hope, the family crest of El!

In some versions of the comics it's the Kryptonian symbol for hope and/or the crest of the house of El but in Kingdom Come it's an original design that Jon and Clark Kent came up with, but do you know if it has been confirmed in Earth=27 continuity that it is a Kryptonian symbol?

Yes. Roy wanted more emphasis placed on it being an alien symbol and not something that just so happens to coincidentally look like an 'S'. I was speaking about the E27 version. Specifically Roy said that the shield shape designates it as a 'house' or 'family' sigil. Then the marking inside means "hope" in Kryptonian and reversed (like on Bizarro's chest) means "despair". I do not recall what he said the other houses' crests meant or where Roy said it though.

That makes sense, so other houses like that of Zod probably mean "survival of the fittest" or "order" or something like that.

Roy, what is your viewpoint of Snyder's Superman so far? Still early in his hero career, I know, but what do you think of his story so far? A lot of people are complaining on how Henry Cavil's Superman isn't that good (blasphemy, imo) but I see that you've gone with the same influences as Snyder in his Kryptionian heritage.

I forget which version the suit he has comes from, with the ribbing on the side

Great design! Though, I would prefer it if the "belt" below all that red was yellow. It feels like it's too much red. Could you make an additional version of this but with a yellow belt?

Just when you're getting used to it, they're taking it away lol! In Rebirth, Superman doesn't have the collar. I personally like the collarless suit.

collar or no collar, i think the Rebirth suit doesn't have enough red and the blue is way too dark a shade

I grew to really the New 52 suit over the years.  The new Rebirth suit looked like Ultraman at first glace only with an "S" instead of a "U" on his chest.  And I can't explain why but the blue boots really bug me for some reason.

I usually prefer the more traditional Superman look but this design is pretty good. The bit of gray is an interesting touch.

Nice. I especially like the red side-panels--it's a good way to introduce more red into the costume without the shorts.

This reminds me of a proposed Superman redesign proposed by Wizard magazine called Ultimate Superman as an answer to Marvel's Ultimate line when it was brand new. www.superman-through-the-ages.…

This version uses design elements from New 52 Superman, live action movie Superman and old school DC Earth-2 Superman (grey hair) so it's a good combination of Superman through the years.

Good eye. This is indeed a fusion of the Ultimate Superman, New 52, Man of Steel, Donner Movie, and more (the emblem is an adaptation of Kingdom Come). His Clark Kent look on my page even looks a bit like Brandon Routh to me... so there is also an unintentional bit of Superman Returns.

Is Lex getting his own thing too? Since I know he's likely the main Superman villain that Batman would interact with, as Bruce Wayne or as Batman.

Superman: Okay Bruce, I Got your message. (notices him looking ahead) look Batman, I know we agreed that if it's something we could handle alone, we would leave eachother to our own devices...but int his situation with Ra's right now? I think you'll need all the help you can get. (Puts hand on Batman's shoulder) I know that this job is tough, but lets show them why you and I make a good team in the Justice League.
