The DC Extended Universe has seen its fair share of controversy - and yet, it seems that the film that kicked it off in the first place (Man of Steel) remains a fan-focus, four years after its release.
In just the first quarter of 2017 we've seen multiple Man of Steel throwback items - be they pictures and behind-the-scenes looks, or trivia of what could've been. Today we have something that springs from fan inspiration, and it looks pretty cool.
As DC Movie fans know, Zack Snyder's Man of Steel gave us a serious re-imagining of Superman's world and origins, with an entire alien aesthetic created for the fashion, technology, and culture of planet Krypton. Russel Crowe's Jor-El, Michael Shannon's Zod, and Antje Traue's Faora are all character we got to see in their traditional Kryptonian armor - but Kal-El/Superman never got that deep into the culture of his home planet.
Well, if you've ever wondered what Superman would look likein Man of Steel's Kryptonian armor, then artist "HouseofMat" has some work you need to see:

With the imminent destruction of Krypton, their home planet, Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and his wife seek to preserve their race by sending their infant son to Earth. The child's spacecraft lands at the farm of Jonathan (Kevin Costner) and Martha (Diane Lane) Kent, who name him Clark and raise him as their own son. Though his extraordinary abilities have led to the adult Clark (Henry Cavill) living on the fringe of society, he finds he must become a hero to save those he loves from a dire threat.
