Some dark days may be headed for DC. Due to legal wranglings of the creator's families, Superman may have to be overhauled. DC might lose the rights to his origin, key characters, and even his costume! Your challenge Comic Viners is to design a new costume for Superman....with some additional rules. 
 
Rule 1: You cannot use the S insignia in its current form. No big diamond with an S in the middle. 
 
Rule 2: If you choose to color your pic, you may only use 2 of the three primary colors associated with the current costume(Red, Yellow, Blue). You can use any additional colors, but only 2 of the 3 his costume incorperates.  
 
Rule 3: Not really a rule, but it would be bonuserrific if you wrote a short summary of who and how your Superman came into existence (because His origin and identity might go bye bye as well). 
 
Deadline is the 10th of January
Get busy drawing, or get busy dying.......

I didn't mean the backstoy was mandatory. Just an explanation if your version of Superman were say a native of Apokolips instead of Krypton. A reason why he looks the way he does. Not required.

The Kryptonian King
  

 
Real Name: Keyl-Cek
Weakness: A gem called AlukaPec found in Apokolips and on Earth
Powers/Abilities: when Keyl is around Kryptonite he has;
- super strength
- super sonic scream
- super leaping
- super speed 
Objects/Suit: 
his green gear is made of Kryptonite which has the abiliy to melt metal, spread intense radiation throughout ones body if touched for longer than a minute, and had the ability to blind people when it was too close to their faces
- Kryptonite blade: blade on his hands made from Kryptonite; all Kryptonite abilities 
- Kryptonite Visor: visor over face; all Kryptonite abilities; also gives him super sight; visor can slide up to reveal his face
- Flight Belt: its not really a belt but a device on his left arm that allows him to fly 
- Kryptonite Cape: able to withstand intense heat, bullets, cannons, freezing weather, and acids
- Kryptonite Boots: increases his leaping abilities even more; all kryptonite abilities

Keyl-Cek's parents were space pirates who traveled from planet to planet stealing valuable treasures. No one knew what planet they were from. But when his mother Cyla found out she was pregnant, they decide to abandon their crew and try to find a planet where they could go unrecognized and raise their child. That was when they found the planet Krypton. Krypton seemed like a peaceful place. A Utopia even. They were all so normal, except the police patrol officers who were given flight belts. No one was super powerful or harmful. Cyla gave birth to two sickly looking twins , a boy and girl, who she named Keyl-Cek and Zay-Cor L . They both looked extremely ill and were under intensive medical care. After about 4 months after their birth, Zay died. However, after the death of his sister Keyl seemed to be getting healthier. His illness went away. Keyl grew up to hate the Kryptonian president at the time, Lexus Lill-Sel. He felt Kryptonians got away with too much. Criminals were sentenced lightly and although Krpton seemed peaceful, there was a secret intricate gang among them. Keyl knew of them. Lexus knew them. Most Kryptonians heard of it. But it was silenced and Kryptonians talked of it as if it was a mere myth. No one would think it was a myth after they slaughtered everyone.
 
This secret gang, Known as the Zarcs, wanted control over Krypton. They had an elaborate plan and used high tech machinery to pump out energy from Krypton's core. The energy that came from the core was known as Kryptonite. This Kryptonite was able to melt metal, spread intense radiation throughout ones body if touched for longer than a minute, and had the ability to blind people when it was too close to their faces. The Zarcs had a difficult time getting this Kryptonite and containing it, however they were successful and had all of Krypton under control in several weeks. 
 
Keyl's mother was killed by being shot with a Krypton bullet to the brain and his father joined the Kryptonian Elite Army to fight off the Zarcs and eventualy died by being drowned by the Zarc's leader. However, success seemed futile. The Zarcs were too powerful and the Kryptonians population decreased each second. However, Keyl found he was unaffected by this radiation. It didn't burn him. It didn't blind him. It didn't so much as tickle the 27 year old. So he began constructing a suit out of the material. He also found he was allow to accomplish incredible feats when near the Kryptonite. He was able to lift buildings, he was able to leap several stories high, he could run at extremes speed, and he had a scream that could shatter mountains. He also modified the police flight belts and made it into a band around his arm. He was strong enough to defeat the Zarcs. 
 
During a battle that spanned over a year of hunting, killing, and tracking down the Zarc leader, Keyl was victorious and sliced the Zarc's lead, Zek's throat. He had his planet back. All the Zarcs were dead. But so were all of the Kryptonians. Everyone was dead. He searched and searched but found no one. He was miserable. Depressed. He considered himself a Krpytonian. All of his people were dead. In a rage he dug himself underground and through the caverns that led to Krypton's core. He saw it. The reason all his people were dead. He wanted no resemblenced of the miserable things that occured on the planet. And so he screamed. The loudest scream ever heard. A scream that was said to be heard throughout the galaxy. The core exploded. The planet exploded. Krypton was gone.
 
Keyl survived but remained in a comatosed state. He drifted unconscious in space for several weeks. That's when he entered a planets orbit and came crashing down. He awoke face to face with a beautiful woman named Lashina, having no recollection of his past whatsoever except the name "Krypton".
 
Eventually he realizes hes in Apokolips and serves as Darkseid right hand man. But when Darkseid throws Lashina (whom Keyl falls in love for) in jail since she stoped Darkseid from murdering an innocent woman, and rumors sweep through apokolips that Darkseid raped her, Keyl kills darkseid, rips his head off and hangs it in his kingdom and gains control over Apokolips. Long live the Kryptonian King
 
 Thats basically the storyy P:

This story has been written by a user on the forums that would wish not to be known. 
 
 
 
 
From the planet Krypton, from the house of El, the son of the head of the house, Kal, was a easy-going teenager with problems against autorithy, he was very intelligent, but he wasnt as any other young man in Krypton. 
 
His Father was head of the science Guild, and wanted him to enter when he grew up, but Kal was more worried in hitting on bar and picking up girl. When he graduated he entered the Science Guild, but not in the physics department, he decided to enter the Archeological research society. 
 
This choice separeted him from his father, and he started to live alone, something unthinkable for the Kryptonian society, and he decided to live most of the time out of Krypton, researching old alien civilizations. In one trip, his ship malfuntioned and he crash landed on Earth, he discovered that the Yellow sun, generated a powerful reaction with his cells any provided him.  
 
They produced a powerful field that altered gravity and other atomic activity only with his mind, letting him ignore the laws of physics and lift absurdly giant weights without any effort, and without collateral damage to his foothold, he could soar the sky manipulating gravity and friction to move at great speed or hardening the atoms around him to create a protective force field strong enough to deflect even the more powerful artillery shells. 
 
He decided to use his powers for good, and to protect this civilization while studying the lost ones and trying to repair his ship, Nicknamed Superman by the press, and in a coincidence Super(Pronounciation) is a old kryptonian word for Protector
