Elements of Steel: Superman’s Iconic Logo Rebuilt by Shutterstock
Shutterstock rebuilt the iconic Superman shield from a series of symbols, using only images that speak to the personal history and attributes of the Last Son of Krypton.
It's a big year for the Man of Steel. Not only is he celebrating his 75th anniversary, but he's also getting a much-hyped reboot on the big screen. As we celebrate three-quarters of a century since Superman first appeared in Action Comics and anticipate the cinematic spectacle that opens this Friday, we've been thinking about what exactly it is that makes a hero. In a way, they're just like the rest of us: the sum of their combined nature and nurture, shaped by the people and events around them.
With that in mind, we set about rebuilding the iconic Superman shield from a series of symbols, solely using images from our collection that reflect the personal history and attributes of the Last Son of Krypton. The resulting composite speaks to Superman's alien heritage, his Midwestern childhood, his life as Clark Kent, and a host of other influences that made Kal-El the most high-profile superhero of all time. Check out our re-envisioned Superman logo below, then take a look at all the images we used to create it.
