Superman Red Son
In many ways, Superman really did die on the outer reaches of the solar system all those centuries ago. Luthor might have dropped a decimal point when he calculated my density, but he successfully made me realize that the human race could thrive without me.


A strange visitor from another world with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men who, as champion of the common man, fought a never-ending battle for Stalin, communism, and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact. Defending Earth from innumerable threats and coming to govern most of it, he eventually came to the conclusion - in large part thanks to his old arch-nemesis, American scientist Lex Luthor - that his presence was stunting societal growth, and allowed it to believe he had perished after saving it from a black hole bomb. Assuming a normal identity, he watched with pride as humanity achieved all he had dreamed of it.

In a twist ending, he was shown to not stem from Krypton, like his mainstream counterpart, but rather from an evolved far future human civilisation, sending him back in time from a doomed Earth, and causing a temporal paradox.
