For today’s Friday pic, here’s a photo that goes along with my prior two posts, which tie in with the San Diego Comic Con happening right now…
Of course, as we found out from the current movie, Man of Steel, that symbol does not stand for “Superman,” but instead is the family crest of Kal-El. In the language of Krypton, the symbol means “hope.”
Well, looking at today’s pic, you might be inspired to hope for a few things.
We owe our gratitude not only to the woman above for wearing such an inspiring top, but also to Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, a couple of high school kids, who came up with the story — and the symbol — in the first place. As well as DC Comics who, in 1938, took a chance on publishing a new story about a guy named Clark Kent who dressed in a cape and could leap tall buildings in a single bound.
DC Comics is not only alive and well, it is thriving right now (along with all things comic-book related), continuing to create characters that entertain us and inspire the imagination of guys around the world.
