...  might be an interesting costume for, say, a far-future descendent of Superman's to wear.---Al

I think it was Kingdom Come's "Brainiac's Daughter" - the daughter of Supergirl and Brainiac 5 - who's S logo was so big that it was too large for her costume.  All that was left was the middle curve of the S.  The rest of it had fallen off her torso.

"The bottom line involves choices.  Neither gods nor humans have ever stood calmly in a minefield forever.  Good or evil, they are bound to choose.  And when they do, you will see the truth of all that motivates us.  As a thinking being, you have the obligation to choose.  If the fate of all mankind were in your hands, what would your decision be?  As a writer and an artist, I've drawn my answer."   - Jack Kirby

I likes me a big "S"! The pentagon it's in fits a broad chest quite well; the bigger it is, the more it accentuates Superman's physique. I always like to think that it should look a bit like it was bursting, or at least stretching.

On a live-action actor, an "S" that big swallows up their chest and makes them look stupid. Dean Cain looked like a total moron with that gargantuan shield. The smaller one he wore in the pilot suited him much better.

Besides, it's stupid to have the emblem be that big because it negates the whole point of a blue tunic. What's the point of Superman wearing a blue shirt if the emblem covers his entire chest?

My first novella, Wounds of the Heart (, has been published. Check it out, if you like.
