Superman: Red Son was 2003 mini-series by Mark Millar, Dave Johnson and Kilian Plunkett. The story's premise explored an alternate reality where baby Kal-El's rocket ship landed in the Soviet Union, rather than the United States, with Superman ultimately becoming a symbol for Soviet values such as communism and expansionism. The Eisner-nominated series has long been a favorite alternate-reality tale, and in recent years has been featured in DC's restructured multiverse.
