    Wait. Mark Waid originated the concept of the S being a Kryptonian sigil? F that. It is an S. As in for Super. As in Clark is a dork and that's why we love him.

    The problem with that being that he would never call himself SUperman.

    That's a good point, but there's an easy fix

    Just have Martha Kent come up with the name/costume

    Clark's not the sort to disagree with his mother, so he'd wear it

    I thought it was the first movie that established that? Like, that it was the crest of the House of El.

    I like it being a Kryptonian symbol, a link to his past. But I also like his mom actually making his costume for him. I think both things are fine as part of Supes backstory.

    Anything that makes Superman less of a good-hearted goober from Kansas is stuff that I'm not a fan of.

    I don't feel it makes him less of a Kansas farmboy if it's a Kryptonian symbol. It just means that he's an immigrant, and that it's a tie to his past, while his present and his upbringing in Smallville is still very important.

    Superman popped up in 1938.

    The concept of the symbol as a coat of arms or family crest came up in 1978.

    It is now 2016.

    In another two years, that concept will have been around for half of Superman's existence.

    How long does it take for it to stop being a "continuity crime"?

    The movie made it the symbol for the House of El. Mark Waid made it stand for 'hope.'

    I think it is a fun, neat little nod to Superman's sci-fi origins.

    I do, however, prefer the Ma Kent outfit over the House of El battle suit.

    I thought the S came from the blanket that Clark was wrapped in, which Martha later turned into his costume since it was Kryptonian and therefore way more durable than earth cloth.

    Think you have that backwards.

    Im confident that they mention it being the symbol of the house of El in birthright and Im certain that the symbol isn't literally hope in Birthright. Sups just notices that the people fighting to help people are wearing that symbol in Krypton history.

    That isn't the same thing as literally meaning hope though

    That just means the House of El was a noble one that people were inspired by

    I really don't think it is

    Something being a symbol of hope is, like, a pretty common thing

    It does not mean that it actually means hope

    Like the exact quote is "At first I thought it was a family crest if some sort-but if it was, it certainly came to mean more than that to these people. Wars were fought over it. Entire cities were built on it. Over the course of time it became a...a promise. A sign of people fighting to make a better world. A symbol of hope."

    Man of Steel is the only place they actually went NO IT LITERALLY MEANS HOPE and that is because David Goyer doesn't know the word subtlety.

    Having it literally mean hope is kind of meaningless since of course clans and factions will take on symbols that mean good things. What house would use a symbol that means cowardice or stupidity for their family crest? Zod's house symbol probably means courage or honor or something like that. Unless Zod actually means Bolton in Kryptonian, in which case his symbol probably means genocide or exsanguination or smooth jazz.

    I'm curious because along with their largely accurate Rebirth scoops Bleeding Cool said that one of the reasons the creative team and plot details of he relaunch are being kept hidden till the end of the month is that a major part of it is modeled after a big spoiler from Batman vs Superman

    So

    I guess that means
    Clark dies in Rebirth?

    batman racks up a higher body count than most schwarzenegger movies. it's not even subtle "car gets hit in such a way that would kill someone in real life but movie logic means they're ok" stunts you would see in the TDK trilogy. full-on cars blowing the fuck up with people still inside them, not to mention outright shooting and blowing up kgbeast in an awful reference to a dark knight returns scene that snyder of course misinterpreted

    lex is fucking awful. i know a lot of folks around here thought he looked bad from the trailers, but i was willing to give the interpretation of the character a shot, and i think because of that it ended up being even more of a disappointment at just how terrible it was. he makes it clear from his very first appearance in the movie that he is not the "lex" in the lexcorp name, that's his father, and boy does his character set out to prove that in every way he can throughout the movie. he's not a genius, he's not a savvy businessman, he's not even really a good socialite. he's a stunted child acting out against his dead abusive father, which i thought had potential once he started to make it clear that that was what was motivating him, but once it's brought up it's dropped just as fast in the rush to get to the next plot point and by the end of the movie he's left a literal gibbering lunatic

    it's also revealed that he's behind a whole subplot involving illegal weapons that are somehow supposed to make superman look bad but it's never really elaborated upon why, and also apparently lex knows who batman is and uses an employee of bruce to instigate him into fighting clark but it's never actually explained how he knows any of this!

    and the hints at the justice league stuff is honestly laughable. bruce has a bad dream about superman working with darkseid (you don't see him but there's the omega symbol and parademons and apokolips furnaces all over the place so it's obvious) and then after the dream motherfucking flash shows up OUT OF NOWHERE in an awful looking costume screaming some shit about not letting lois die and realizing he went back too far. it's the most inane, out-of-left-field shit i've ever seen and it honestly makes no sense other than to be a thing for marks to clap at in the movie theater (which of course they did, despite how fucking random it was) and then it turns out lex has a bunch of files regarding metahumans on his computer, each handily already sporting their own logo! it's basically a bunch of security footage feed of flash, cyborg and aquaman that isn't exciting in the least and, in my opinion, goes over like a wet fart

    the movie is such a huge mess, it's honestly kinda astounding. i went into it not exactly enthused about it but willing to give it a shot, and came away from it ready to write off the DCEU altogether

    the only highlights for me were jeremy irons as alfred, who was perfect, and gal gadot who did a pretty good job with wonder woman. i did find it odd that she still has her israeli accent, but that's likely something not a ton of the moviegoing public will pick up on and will instead just sound "exotic". other than that she's got the physicality and look down pat

    oh and there's also a scene with a naked amy adams in a bathtub, but that's neither here nor there

    In my opinion, Siegel and Shuster were the only ones who could cry in anguish over any of the changes made to Superman and it not be an over the top reaction.

    Everyone else has been tripping over themselves with remixes and reinventions since. It's gunna happen again with every iteration of the character.

    It wasn't over "changes made to superman" it was because they fucked up his specific superman story

    I know you hate when artists use preexisting characters but you can still have ownership over a story even if you didn't invent the character, and they used it without even asking him, he got excited they were using it, and then they turned it into something that was the exact opposite of what he believes superman should be.

    man, what a fucking mess of a movie

    You saw it?

    I was expecting a fucking mess! I want details! Also pictures of Spider-Man.
    batman racks up a higher body count than most schwarzenegger movies. it's not even subtle "car gets hit in such a way that would kill someone in real life but movie logic means they're ok" stunts you would see in the TDK trilogy. full-on cars blowing the fuck up with people still inside them, not to mention outright shooting and blowing up kgbeast in an awful reference to a dark knight returns scene that snyder of course misinterpreted

    lex is fucking awful. i know a lot of folks around here thought he looked bad from the trailers, but i was willing to give the interpretation of the character a shot, and i think because of that it ended up being even more of a disappointment at just how terrible it was. he makes it clear from his very first appearance in the movie that he is not the "lex" in the lexcorp name, that's his father, and boy does his character set out to prove that in every way he can throughout the movie. he's not a genius, he's not a savvy businessman, he's not even really a good socialite. he's a stunted child acting out against his dead abusive father, which i thought had potential once he started to make it clear that that was what was motivating him, but once it's brought up it's dropped just as fast in the rush to get to the next plot point and by the end of the movie he's left a literal gibbering lunatic

    it's also revealed that he's behind a whole subplot involving illegal weapons that are somehow supposed to make superman look bad but it's never really elaborated upon why, and also apparently lex knows who batman is and uses an employee of bruce to instigate him into fighting clark but it's never actually explained how he knows any of this!

    and the hints at the justice league stuff is honestly laughable. bruce has a bad dream about superman working with darkseid (you don't see him but there's the omega symbol and parademons and apokolips furnaces all over the place so it's obvious) and then after the dream motherfucking flash shows up OUT OF NOWHERE in an awful looking costume screaming some shit about not letting lois die and realizing he went back too far. it's the most inane, out-of-left-field shit i've ever seen and it honestly makes no sense other than to be a thing for marks to clap at in the movie theater (which of course they did, despite how fucking random it was) and then it turns out lex has a bunch of files regarding metahumans on his computer, each handily already sporting their own logo! it's basically a bunch of security footage feed of flash, cyborg and aquaman that isn't exciting in the least and, in my opinion, goes over like a wet fart

    the movie is such a huge mess, it's honestly kinda astounding. i went into it not exactly enthused about it but willing to give it a shot, and came away from it ready to write off the DCEU altogether

    the only highlights for me were jeremy irons as alfred, who was perfect, and gal gadot who did a pretty good job with wonder woman. i did find it odd that she still has her israeli accent, but that's likely something not a ton of the moviegoing public will pick up on and will instead just sound "exotic". other than that she's got the physicality and look down pat

    oh and there's also a scene with a naked amy adams in a bathtub, but that's neither here nor there

    Whoever came up with it needs to go to continuity jail.

    I've always heard it was Marlon Brando's idea.
