* FallenStatesOfAmerica: By 1978, America is pretty much in the gutter. Wonder Woman suggests it all began with the assassination of Richard Nixon in Dallas back in 1963, and now John F. Kennedy is running the show. He's forced to grant independence to Georgia, with similar pressures being exerted by Detroit and Texas, riots in California, and a white house bombing by communist sympathizers.
--> '''Luthor:''' I'm afraid you won't be getting my vote next year, Jack.

** Brainiac to Superman as well.

** Brainiac to Superman as well. Superman initially defeats and reprograms Brainiac to help him increase the efficiency of his burgeoning Global Soviet Union, [[spoiler:until Brainiac reveals that he merely [[NotBrainwashed faked being reprogrammed]] since Superman was already carrying out Brainiac's plans anyway. This leads Superman to the HeelRealization that he's no better than Brainiac in trying to control humankind.]]

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In this timeline, Batman considered Superman a serious enough threat that he was even willing to make a temporary alliance with the man who killed his parents just to try to take down Superman.

* WhoWritesThisCrap: Perry White has this reaction to Soviet propaganda about Superman. It doubles as a TakeThat, since said propaganda mimics the introduction of TheAdventuresOfSuperman.

** Also, Sputnik-2, which weighs 5000 pounds/about 2268 kilograms, hitting the ground at 100 meters per second wouldn't be nearly enough to wipe out an entire city.

* SmartPeoplePlayChess: Superman, Brainiac, and especially Luthor (who is first seen playing ''fourteen'' games of chess at once while reading ''ThePrince'' and teaching himself Urdu on a tape recorder he designed that morning). It acts a recurring motif throughout the story. Funnily enough, in spite of his typical portrayal, Bizarro is skilled enough at chess to beat Luthor at it.

* SuperSupremacist: ZigzaggedTrope. At first Superman subverts it when he refuses to become the new premier of the Soviet Union after Stalin's death because ruling on the basis of his innate superpowers is directly contrary to the communist ideal of equality. He later recants when he decides that he could use his powers to protect and improve humanity, but he gradually becomes a totalitarian dictator and his promised utopia a CrapsaccharineWorld. When [[spoiler:Brainiac turns on Superman after apparently being reprogrammed to help him with his new order, Superman acknowledges that he's no better, just another powerful alien bullying a weaker species. He decides to fake his own death and let mankind decide its own fate.]]

** On one hand, Lex's ArmorPiercingQuestion is appropriate. Then, he goes to do the exact same thing with Luthorism except this time, Superman doesn't mind only because the only difference between Lex and him is Lex being human. It defeats the point of the utopia since, you can improve a place only if you were born there. It goes on for [[spoiler: for millions of years to boot. It's heavily implied a single bloodline has been ruling Earth during all this time. So much for democracy and the right to choose its ideology]].

''Superman: Red Son'' is a DCUniverse {{Elseworlds}} story, written by Creator/MarkMillar and published in 2003, that dares to imagine what would have happened if the spaceship holding baby Kal-El had landed in the Soviet Union instead of the United States, due to a small difference in the Earth's orbit compared to the main DCU. Instead of being adopted by the Kents in Smallville, Kansas, he is raised on a collective farm in Ukraine, where he discovers that he has powers greater than any man, powers he decides to use for the good of his country, and the world.
