Superman Logo T Shirt

The icon of a Superhero

Did Superman really design his own Superman logo t shirt?

Well, in real life he didn't, it was actually Joe Schuster an aspiring american artist. But in the comic book story itself, it doesn't really say. If he did come up with it, then not only does he have superpowers, but he must also have super design skills too.

But if he had not designed it himself he might have asked a designer to create it for him, but then if he had, it might have revealed his secret as to who he really was, Superman.

Besides Superman himself being an icon of the American culture, his very "S" symbol on his shirt was and still is an icon today. Most people might never have seen a Superman movie and read a comic but will be able to identify the Superman logo.

The Superman logo that we know today is not the original logo that was created for Superman. When Superman stared in his first comic book in 1938, he had a logo icon on the chest of his costume.

He wore a red, blue and yellow costume, with a stylized "S" shield on his chest as well as a cape. The shield was yellow the the "S" was in red.

In 1940 the Superman logo was improved upon, with the "S" now being yellow in color and the shield red. The "S" also was enlarged a bit and the shield began to look more like a diamond.

Superman then appeared with a large red "S" behind a black diamond background. Almost each decade thereafter the logo was tweaked and improved upon until what we now know as the modern Superman logo.
