Mark Millar published the Red Son mini-series in DC Comics under their Elseworlds imprint in 2003. Superman: Red Son mix alternate versions of DC super-heroes with alternate-reality versions of real political figures such as Joseph Stalin and John F. Kennedy.
In Red Son, Superman’s rocket ship lands on a Ukrainiancollective farm rather than in Kansas, an implied reason being a small time difference (a handful of hours) from the original timeline, meaning Earth’s rotation placed Ukraine in the ship’s path instead of Kansas. Instead of fighting for “… truth, justice, and the American Way”, Superman is described in Soviet radio broadcasts “… as the Champion of the common worker who fights a never-ending battle for Stalin, socialism, and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact.” His “secret identity” (i.e., the name his adoptive parents gave him) is a state secret.
Superman: Red Son cast is comprised of Jason Isaacs (Superman), Lex Luthor (Diedrich Bader), Amy Acker (Lois Lane), Vanessa Marshall (Wonder Woman), Phil Morris (James Olsen), Paul Williams (Brainiac), Roger Craig Smith (Batman), Sasha Roiz (Hal Jordan), Phil LaMarr (John Stewart), Jim Meskimen (John F. Kennedy), William Salyers (Joseph Stalin), and Travis Willingham (Superior Man).
