What if Superman landed as a child in Russia instead of America? Raised as a communist, friend of Stalin...
This is the premise of Superman - Red Son, a masterpiece by Mark Millar. An alternate world where Communism takes over most of the world except the United States, who finance Lex Luthor (the most clever person in Earth and husband of Lois Lane) so that he can discover a way to kill Superman.
A different Batman (soviet), Wonder Woman and other surprises I won't spoil make this comic a really incredible work. Sometimes direct and cruel, sometimes humorous, but one of the best comics I've read lately.
Absolutely recommended, even if Superman is not your favourite superhero.
