I’d like to quote TexanJoe (the commissioner and creator of these characters) with regards to this particular image, “Some amazing things can happen when you just let an artist loose on your characters.”

[And] when I draw the character [Superman], I put the ‘S’ on last, because that’s the thing that defines him and empowers him. Without it, he’s just another superhero with a cape. But when you put the ‘S’ symbol on, it raises him to an iconic level.

“People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can’t rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right.” — Sara, from the movie “The Crow”
