The critically acclaimed Superman: Red Son now collected in a
brand-new edition! In this vivid tale of Cold War paranoia, the ship carrying

Soviet Union, where he is raised on a collective. As he becomes a symbol to the
Soviet people, the world changes drastically from what we know - bringing
Superman into conflict with Batman, Lex Luthor, and others.
