Superman: Red Son - the DC Universe animated film based on the classic 2003 Elseworlds comic book miniseries from Mark Millar and artists Dave Johnson, Andrew Robinson, Walden Wong, and Killian Plunkett - takes place in an alternate reality where the spaceship bearing the last survivor of Krypton crash lands – not in rural Kansas, but in Stalinist Russia. The story asks the question - "what would happen if Superman was raised in the Soviet Union and became a Communist hero?"
