The Shield of Superman: The Evolution of an Icon infographic

If you want to dress up like Superman, it is important to understand which Superman your going to be. The Shield of Superman: The Evolution of an Icon infographic from HalloweenCostumes.com provides visuals and a brief synopsis of each Superman logo in the comics and pop culture.

It’s a bird…It’s a plane…It’s Superman! Well, not Superman himself, but it IS a super awesome Superman infographic.

2013 is THE year for everyone’s favorite Man of Steel. Between it being the hero’s 75th anniversary, and Man of Steel hitting the silver screen on June 14th, we’re bursting with red and blue excitement! Thankfully, we were able to use our energy for good rather than evil, and create a visual guide to the evolution of Superman’s iconic emblem.

We cover the logo’s various incarnations in both comics and popular culture, starting with its first appearance in 1938 and culminating with what the famed “S” will look like when Henry Cavill reveals it on on his Clark Kent-ee chest in theaters in a little over a week!

Love this.  The visual images clearly show the readers how dramatically the logo has changed over the years in both comics and film.  

The footer should include a copyright statement and the URL link back to the infographic landing page.  Readers need to be able to find the original full-size version from the publisher when people share the infographic on other sites without linking back.
