** In a more positive light, Bizarro. In spite of his disfigured appearance and altered superpowers, Bizarro ''does'' have the same ideals for human life and happiness that his original does. [[spoiler: When human life is threatened during his fight with Superman, Bizarro chooses to sacrifice himself to save them rather than continue his battle.]]



* 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.

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.

As an adult, he aligns himself with the government of UsefulNotes/JosefStalin, protecting the citizens of the Soviet Union from even the smallest crimes and accidents, eventually succeeding Stalin as the country's leader. When the people of the United States learn of Superman's existence, they're naturally terrified, and the government turns to the smartest man in the country, scientist SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor (husband of ComicBook/LoisLane), to combat this newest threat to the American way. Thus begins a superhuman arms race and a legendary battle of power and philosophies between Superman and his archnemesis.

* GreyAndGrayMorality: Superman is a TotalitarianUtilitarian, [[BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood dissenter-brainwashing]] KnightTemplar, but Lex Luthor, despite all he does for his country, is still SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor, a [[MadScientist mad]] [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] [[ItsAllAboutMe egomaniac]]. [[spoiler: Though Luthor does lead the world in a long Golden Age after Superman has gone, this is probably for his ego as much as anything else.]]

* StylisticSuck: Not the miniseries itself, of course, but the first few pages are deliberately written in the style of a bad SilverAge comic... then Superman saves Metropolis from a Sputnik-turned-meteor. Which, as you should have guessed, is in the country he's at war with.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Pyotr Roslov, the head of the KGB and Satlin's bastard son is an Elseworlds equivalent of Superman's childhood friend Pete Ross, but he is also a parallel to Stalin's eldest son Yakov Dzhugashvili, who Stalin famously let die in a German prison camp.

* HumbleHero: Superman initially resists the idea of being elevated to leader, noting (correctly, but unsuccessfully) that putting him in charge because of his inborn advantages is [[{{UsefulNotes/Socialism}} utterly contrary to socialist principles]]. This later changes as he slips into believing he knows best for humanity.
