Does anyone know what the Superman logo stands for. I always thought it was a "S" meaning Superman but Jor-el wears the same logo on planet Krypton and it's Lois that calls him Superman in the film. I'm just confussed what it means. Thanks.

Its the symbol of their family. Like in the opening scenes all of the kryptonian elders are wearing different symbols. The "S" is the El family symbol.

when Superman appeared in the 1940's the 'S' was meant to represent 'S' in Superman. The in the Superman:The Movie, it was implied that it is the symbol of the 'El' family. John Byrne's Man of Steel series, went back to the 1940's definition and coincidentally the 'S' also was the 'El' family symbol. Recently, the 'S' symbol is also the kryptonian symbol of hope.
