And meanwhile, I'm not a big Superman fan, but the "Red Son" triple was... awesome. A world where Superman crashed to Earth twelve hours earlier, and as a result, landed in the Ukraine, and was raised a Communist. The best part of it was the fact that it had a tragic aspect that Superman normally lacks... because in this, Superman wanted to do the best for everyone, he wanted to end plague, famine, violence, etc. And he almost succeeds.
And there were other wonderful touches, like the fact that while he was raised a communist, he puts lie to the ideals- living proof that all men were not created equal. Very thoughtful, very intriuging.
