Batman and Superman are very different characters but they're both iconic and elemental. Finding the right story for them both is the key.
— Christopher Nolan

Don't call me an icon. I'm just a mother trying to help.
Princess of Wales Diana icons quote

Supergirl is such an iconic brand, and for me to be able to be the new face of it is extremely exciting.

These are icons to be treasured.
— Robert Stack

Iconic clothing has been secularized. A guardsman in a dress uniform is ostensibly an icon of aggression; his coat is red as the blood he hopes to shed. Seen on a coat-hanger, with no man inside it, the uniform loses all its blustering significance and, to the innocent eye seduced by decorative color and tactile braid, it is as abstract in symbolic information as a parasol to an Eskimo. It becomes simply magnificent.
