*** In the 1978 film they make it clear that the reason for the S symbol is that traditional Kryptonian garb always included a chest insignia with a family seal on it, and the seal of Jor-El's clan (a serpent coiled inside a shield) just happened to look kind of like what we think of as the letter S.
