The shield in Superman Returns isn't exactly the same as the one used in S:TM and its sequels as well, so I wouldn't say Cavill's Superman is the first to have a different S. Regardless of how subtle, the symbols are all different across the various incarnations of the character.
“Whoever writes English is involved in a struggle that never lets up even for a sentence. He is struggling against vagueness, against obscurity, against the lure of the decorative adjective, against the encroachment of Latin and Greek, and above all, against the worn-out phrases and dead metaphors with which the language is cluttered up.”
