What do you feel when Superman rips the first three buttons of his shirt? What comes to your mind when the Bat Signal sparks up in the middle of the night? How do you feel when you see a yellow lightning bolt or an eagle-shaped in a W or a mechanical red eye?
Don’t you feel a sense of confidence building up, a sort of adrenaline rush pumping through your veins! That’s the kind of feeling every other employee seeks when they are working with potential leaders. Who can redefine the true essence of leadership other than your favorite superheroes?
Today, we are going to reflect on how each justice league superhero has an inspiring logo and how it dictates the lesson of true leadership using the right form of symbology.
So, without further Ado, let’s delve in.
Just like bat revel in the depths of murky darkness, a true leader will always stay behind the curtains. If you know about Batman, you must also know that he is one of the few superheroes who doesn’t even have super-powers. And henceforth, he has to keep reminding himself not to go beyond his capabilities. The Batman logo embodies the fact that a bat is blind, yet it is able to successfully hunt its prey in the dark.
Leaders infatuated with the Batman logo do realize that they aren’t super-humans, yet they are able to combat any difficulty coming their way. Batman thrives on the right strategy and those who follow in his wake are more likely successful in becoming strategic leaders themselves.
How inspiring can be an ‘S’ enveloped within a pentagon be, right? Well, to be honest, it can give you more hope than its fictional nature deserves. Do ask yourself what the Superman symbol reminds you of?
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Superman.
One of our childhood favorite superheroes is none other than Superman. The S in Superman symbol sends a very strong message that you are now “Safe.” Secrecy, Sentiments, and Security are the three traits of Superman and they are all represented in his logo. Besides, Superman himself is a very charismatic character and exudes the true essence of confidence in leadership.
She has a whip that can crush your ego and make you spill the beans! She has a sword that can defend her from the most powerful enemies in the world and she has braces that can fend off bullets.
She is the Queen of Amazon; she is none other than Wonder-Woman.
If you look up closely, the ‘W’ in Wonder Woman forms an Eagle. An eagle hunts its prey from high above in the sky as they are the best observers. The ‘W’ of wonder-woman reflects a similar essence. It is a symbol that empowers the perception that a leader should always be a keen observer.
He controls the oceans! He makes the fish swim in swarms around him! He knows what he is doing and if he has his mind set to it, consider it done. Aqua man really does inspire leadership with his strong and rather formidable personality.
Aqua-man really knows how to portray himself with his charisma and presence.
As far as the Aqua man symbol is concerned, it symbolizes the crown of the aqua man. Crown shows that there is one true leader and no other that can challenge him. Leaders who want to be the alpha of their packs can take inspiration from Aqua man and tread the same path.
He is fast! He is really, really fast!
Flash is, by far, one of the fastest superheroes existing in the DC world. He has crossed all sound barriers and in the “Flashpoint Paradox,” he ran so fast that he even went back in time and altered the whole history of the DC Universe in order to save his mom.
The symbol of Flash is a lightning bolt. It symbolizes speediness and agility. Flash runs at the speed of light, he even beats Superman when it comes to speed. Flash inspires the essence of quickness in leadership. Leaders seeking to be productive in their work can really take aspiration from him.
Last but not the least, the symbol of Cyborg is a red-eye. His symbol doesn’t even begin to explain the power he exudes in his personality. Cyborg is a full-packed ultimate destruction machine. He is tactical and can transform into any massive destruction weapon of his choice. Cyborg makes sure that his enemies are floored to the ground; yet, he is very resilient and only uses his powers to defend the world.
The symbol of Cyborg is a red-eye, enclosed within a C. It delivers the lesson of resilience among leaders.
One way or another, when we see these symbols, they remind us of our favorite superheroes and often lead us to wonder how they would have acted in a particular situation when faced with calamities. As kids, they became our source of inspiration, they became our dream leaders who make sure we kept moving forward. Our favorite superheroes became our friends in imagination and our guiding lights.
They not only inspire motivation, but also the courage that a leader requires. So, have you given it a thought yet? Which one is your favorite … Do let us know by dropping a comment below.
