Hey Everyone thanks for stopping by and looking at my profile "S" stands for, Superman states that it is not an "S", but rather the Kryptonian symbol for "hope". The House of El was one of the noble ruling families of the planet, Krypton. The name El translates in Kryptonian to "of the star". In 2004, Mark Waid's Superman: Birthright series says the S-Shield is the Kryptonian symbol for "hope" and Superman believes it may have begun as a coat of arms for the House of El. Later, writer Geoff Johns confirmed it was indeed a coat of arms, as well as a symbol for hope. In the 2013 film Man of Steel, when asked by Lois Lane what the "S" stands for, Superman states that it is not an "S", but rather the Kryptonian symbol for "hope".
