He is raised as a favorite son of Joseph Stalin. America, meanwhile, turns to their brightest scientist to combat the super-powerful communist menace: Lex Luthor. In the U.S.S.R., a terrorist Batman harasses and evades the communist Superman who is helped by a corrupted Wonder Woman. Mark Millar upsets your expectations with this mind-bending tale from DC's Elseworlds series.
