Superman logo history

Hot on the heels of the Batman logo evolution poster which did the rounds last month, is this infographic featuring the multiple versions of the Superman crest.

There have been dozens of different variations of the Superman ‘S’ shield over the years between 1938-2013, with twenty-five of them included on The History of the Superman Logo poster by The Geek Twins. It appears that there may be some inaccuracies, even so, it’s a nice visualisation of the changes made to the Man of Steel’s chest insignia over the seventy plus years since its creation.
