Some type of Kryptonian coat of arms or symbol, like Superman's "S" is suppose to be.

I'm not that big of a superman reader, but I'm pretty sure it's been retconned a number of times where superman's symbol is from his families coat of arms (House of EL) and not designed by the Kents.


As shown in Jor EL from the Christopher Reeve movie:

MAN OF STEEL WRITTEN LIKE REAL STORY, NOT COMIC BOOK

Goyer (writer):

“We’re approaching Superman as if it weren’t a comic book movie, as if it were real.”

“I adore the Donner films. Absolutely adore them. It just struck me that there was an idealist quality to them that may or may not work with today’s audience. It just struck me that if Superman really existed in the world, first of all this story would be a story about first contact.”

“He’s an alien. You can easily imagine a scenario in which we’d be doing a film like E.T., as opposed to him running around in tights. If the world found out he existed, it would be the biggest thing that ever happened in human history. It falls into that idea of trying to humanize the inhuman. He’s made out of steel, he’s not made out of flesh, metaphorically speaking. We are portraying him as a man, yet he’s not a man.”

“It is obviously a much longer process with a character like Superman. It is much easier to do a realistic take on Batman. You know nothing can hurt Superman, presumably other than Kryptonite. The challenge was simply: can we figure out a way to make those elements work, quote unquote, in the real world? It’s very much a story of a man with two fathers.”

I actually blame you and people like you who have these impossible standards for children's comic book movies.
