Agreed, and if Smallville can animate the on the cape, then it should be no problem for MOS.

Thanks guys. So yeah, I say the lack of S is 100 percent a stylistic decision. It's just a shame, always been one of my favorite details of the costume

The "S" on the cape looks like a mustard stain (I wonder if I can get "mustard stain" banned if I keep using it lol).

I don't see the point of adding it. I think the cape looks more majestic without it, especially when it's huge and free-flowing. I think the shield detracts from appreciating the cape as a whole. Isn't it cool enough to see a billowing piece of fabric?

i agree people flipped with an s on belt since they felt it was unnecessary and did'nt add anything

s on cape does'nt add anything either as bold and striking as MOS S is on the Chest it does'nt need an s on the cape

i prefer it with the S but to me the cape without the yellow S seems more blanket like in the end but it still would have been nice

I actually like it with the yellow S, too. But it's not such a shock without it to bother me.

I don't really care for The S on the back but if they ever do The Death of Superman, the Cape on Flag loses it Symbolism.

The first issue or two had no \S/ on the cape. The boots also changed from red to blue, sometimes from frame to frame. It very quickly became a fixture so sadly the argument for dropping it doesn't come from the original comics.

You should see how serious I would be if I didn't ban several people a day.....it's downright scary when you think about it.

A lot of ideas don't come from the original comics....doesn't make them any less valid in this case.

It's not a question of whether it can be done or not...it can...just like the red undies can be done, and a caucasian Perry White can be done...and a brunette Lois can be done.

They just chose differently.

You're right but in this case somebody appeared to be trying to use the original comics to justify the missing \S/. Just nipping that one in the bud.

Of course not!
It's because the Deconstructonists (decons for short) are out in full force to impose their sinister multicultural postmodernist agenda on the Man of Steel. Snyder is likely a commie.
Haven't you heard of this?
The nerve of these people, giving Lois red hair!
Everyone knows that she should have played Lana instead right?
