Established with firm Canadian roots, Superman was the first Super Hero, spawning countless new characters in the DC COMICS™ pantheon. He was the inspiration for a new archetype that not only still exists today, but is more popular than ever. Many important Canadian visionaries continue to shape the DC Comics Universe even today, lending their talents as storytellers and further building on the history that began in 1938.
The reverse image combines the application of robust colour over intricate engraving to bring to life these artistic depictions of WONDER WOMAN™, Superman and Batman—the “trinity” of the DC Comics Universe. Throughout the image's background, carefully positioned polygon shapes are contrasted through the use of frosted finishes in order to create a stunning “shattered glass” effect; this visual element is highly symbolic, for it represents the “shattering” of what was established in Man of Steel and the challenges that lie ahead after Superman has revealed himself to the world. Within three of these shapes are the iconic SUPER HEROES™ themselves: Wonder Woman in a battle-ready stance as she holds her Phoenician-inscribed sword before her; Superman appears as a pillar of strength, his gaze steady on the horizon while the viewer’s eye is naturally drawn to the iconic red and yellow S-shield emblazoned across his chest; and Batman, whose gritty expression beneath his cowl adds a brooding feel to this likeness of the seasoned crime-fighter. Each Super Hero’s name is engraved next to them in the intricate Kryptonian syllabic writing system.
