Superman’s S-Shield

Did you know that the Superman S-Shield is one of the most recognized symbols in the world. Everyone knows the S-Shield. In fact, I recall reading somewhere that it was in the top 5 recognized symbols in the world. Right up there with the cross, the Star of David and the Nike swoosh. Anyway, Prior to 1985 there were two Supermen. There was an Earth-1 Superman and an Earth-2 Superman. It’s too complicated to explain but Earth-2 Superman (or the Golden Age) Superman was the original Superman from the 1930s. The other one wasn’t. Each one had its own S-shield symbol. Isn’t that worth knowing?
