You are correct about the movie directly taking the plot from the Bible; however, I think you should take it a step further and consider "S" as serpent instead of Satan. Satan is simply a metaphor for the malevolent reptilians. The word for God in Hebrew is "El" just like the "House of El" in Superman. Elohim is the plural from of El and is found in this popular phrase in the Bible as the subject: "Let us create man in our image according to our likeness".

I was watching the movie MAN OF STEEL. It's funny how they kept asking in the movie.....
"what does the "S" stand for???"
So I was thinking about it....
And here's what I came up with... This is a little out in left field, but hear me out...
The Superman story seems to have a odd similarity to the story in the bible. Which is in another world a superior race existed. They had a battle there. As a result one male individual with super powers was sent to live out there life on earth. However this superior being who had the form of a man has super powers and was able to dominate humans.
That's the same story as the bible. Battle in heaven. Satan is sent to earth. He has super powers and is able to dominate humans. Like a striking similarity in some ways.
Then the irony gets thick as in the movie/story the "S" stands for Superman, but maybe it was suppose to be sort of a spoof on the idea that it could also mean "Satan".
Now I'm not saying Satan is good, the way superman is portrayed to be good. Obviously satan want to kill and destroy everyone but I'm just saying the way the stories unfold and the "S" and a super powerful male figure seems rather coincidental???
What do you think?

In the 1978 feature film Superman: The Movie, it was said that the S-shield was actually a Kryptonian glyph that served as a family seal for the House of El.
Later TV and animated adaptations all followed this explanation.
Finally, in 2003, the comic books followed suit. In the story Superman: Birthright, writer Mark Waid modernized the hero's early days to much acclaim and altered the origin of the shield. Waid revealed that the symbol was not only a family crest, as the films had first indicated, but was also an ancient Kryptonian symbol that meant "hope." This meaning and legacy was why Clark chose it as his seal when he became a public hero and its resemblance to a stylized letter S, along with his incredibly abilities, is what inspired reporter Lois Lane to call him "Superman."
Initially, the S-shield had one meaning: S for Superman. One of the first alternative meanings was presented in Superman: The Movie, in which it was not an S, but rather the S-shaped Coat of arms of the House of El. After the Superman reboot story The Man of Steel, the symbol's story was that it was designed by Jonathan Kent and was derived from an ancient Native American symbol. The symbol was featured on a medicine blanket given to an ancestor of the Kent family by a Native American tribe after he helped to cure them of a plague and was supposed to represent a snake, an animal held to possess healing powers by the tribe (implying that, by wearing this symbol, Superman was a metaphorical healer). In 2004, Mark Waid's Superman: Birthright series says the S-Shield is the Kryptonian symbol for "hope" and Superman believes it may have begun as a coat of arms for the House of El. Later, writer Geoff Johns confirmed it was indeed a coat of arms, as well as a symbol for hope. In the 2013 film Man of Steel, when asked by Lois Lane what the "S" stands for, Superman states that it is not an "S", but rather the Kryptonian symbol for "hope".
