The writer of the comics, Tom Taylor said that by this move more people would see themselves in superheroes. “Superman’s symbol has always stood for hope, for truth and justice. Today, that symbol represents something more. Today, more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in comics,” Tom said.
