Storytime - Superman Red Son Anonymous Comrade 12/16/2019 (Mon) 21:57:12 No. 3352
What if instead of landing in the burger heartland, Kal-El landed in the middle of the Soviet Union? What if instead of Ma and Pa Kent, the man of steel was raised by the other man of steel?

In light of this thread >>>/leftypol/164364 I think it's time to storytime Superman Red Son. It's about 150 pages total, over 3 parts.

End of part 1.

I'll be back in a few hours with part 2, so there's some time to read and react.
Just from aestethic viewpoint this is gold, I don't even care about the stupid way it ends and the dumb politics.

It's full of god tier Soviet imagery, the US superman is a horrible abomination, and that final panel should be framed and hung on the wall of every soiboi.
Reiterating here:
The overall story is garbage about how Superman would be a 'good boi' no matter if he was raised by "le evul stalin" or not. The series is basically just "muh gulags" only with superheros. batman is an anarkid shove-in and somehow Lex-Luthor makes America compete with the USSR even when all the world but the USA is controlled under socialism. In the end Brainiac tries to go genocidal and since he is the cybersyn running the soviet planned economy everything falls to shit and Superman comes to a lib-soc conclusion.

While over-all it still jerks off "capitalism is great" ideology it has some interesting moments and ideas and character uses such as with Bizzaro Superman and Anarcho-kulak Batman.

TL;DR: Rad-lib fap-fantasy about succ-dems triumphing under 'le red fashism'. BUT there were cool aesthetics and actually interesting parts.

PS This isn't the first time Superman has gone over to the communist side (pic related)
>The overall story is garbage about how Superman would be a 'good boi' no matter if he was raised by "le evul stalin" or not.
Which is funny because the whole point of Superman is that nurture > nature and muh wholesome murrikan way can make a gud boi out of even a fucking alien.
Gonna post part 2 starting in about 15 minutes.
>Sick of working in a system where, no matter how hard I try, I'm never going to make it to the top of the party now that you're here.
This would be a much better premise.
Superhumans being a metaphor for both capitalist states' powers and the enriched themselves.

Perhaps Batman is a Trot of some sort.

And that's the end of part 2. I'll be back in about an hour with part 3, the final part.
I'm not saying it's true, but it's a line you hear from MLs sometimes that anarchists will work with capitalists and imperialists to fight socialists.

Batman might be the dumbest part of the comic since the original character is based so much on a specific person's psychology, and in this universe there just happens to be the same character in a different setting, complete with batcave trophies that make no sense.

What about that time in 1939 Madrid when anarchists supported a coup by General Casado and the "National Defense Council" who wanted to surrender to Franco
I'm not saying it never happened either. Just that it's a stereotype. Anyway, here comes part 3.

thanks anon

kinda cringe ending tbh, earth never got saved in the end
All star was better. Red Son is just too contrived especially the Wonder Woman characterization. Her just outright defecting because she can’t get into Supes pants is just stupid.
But IS true anarkiddies’ hate for MLs, their self righteousness and loosed organization make them a prime target for porky subversion.
Their hearts are in the right place but their actions usually fuck everything up. Still better than leftcom armchairs tho.
Since there's an adaptation coming, does anybody have thoughts on that? Are they likely to change anything in particular? IMO the strongest point of the comic is the art, and the animation is going to lose a lot of the character. Kind of like the adaptation of The Killing Joke.

As soon as the epilogue started I knew where it was going and my eyes rolled out my damn head.

Wondy was done extremely dirty but I maintain Batman was the most nonsensical and poorly conceived. Given the historical significance of anarchy and Batman's significance in the comics, it's pretty weak how little he's in the story.
Hey I'm not gonna say you're wrong because you're not. That's a very real weakness of anarchy. Don't want to start some sectarian shit, but anarchists' flaws and MLs' flaws could be significantly offset if there was more co-operation and accounting for the differences in strategy.

Batman: Red Son when?
Despite claims by casuals that Batman is an ancap wet dream, he is also anti porky and anti establishment like in pic related or Dark Knight Returns.
An actual socialist take on Batman would be kino as fuck
Thanks lad. Reading it rn.
Batman IS porky
>Batman is an ancap wet dream
Says who? Batman's class character is inherently porky and his actions are vigilantism see the Batman thread.
>Batman was the most nonsensical and poorly conceived.
Of course this is what a radlib American view of anarchism. They don’t understand it as inherently leftist but just “anarchy=le no rulez no tax!”.

The only mention of gulag in the comic was that red supes lobotomize people (which is hilarious considering how it was the Soviet Union that pioneered in banning the barbaric practice). After her depowering incel ww becomes lib and hating all violence but somehow still fought supes when he defended the USSR against the mass produced green lanterns.
>>8041 I think they find (or thought) that the brainwashed maid army was little enough to show the Eeevil of gommunism. So Svetlana, was the first love of Sups (wordplay with Lana amirite?)... Really a priority of the state to kill a good soviet citizen. Fucking DC movie studio.
>>8053 Which I really don’t get since why would Supes identity be hidden? Wouldn’t touting him as a farmer in a collective farm and the pinnacle of Soviet proletarian power like they did with Gagarin makes more sense? They’re just doing it for arbitrary red scare bullshit to spook the Amerilard watching. Probably because Amerilards would support lobotomy just as they did in the States.

While overall the movie is not all that great, I think Superman's fight with Superior Man is much better, with Luthor's actions and his own 'patriotism' leading to his gruesome and depressing death. In the comics, his fight with Red Son causes the British to panic and launch a nuke at a city. So Superior Man does a Bizarro and sacrifices himself. While it makes him a sympathetic character, it takes away some of Red Son's legitimacy IMO, which is eh the movie does this scene better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNinzcfun2U
Something that rather annoyed me was that Red Son Supes is really weak in terms of feats compared to even normal superman... for like no reason at all.
>>18495 lol he literally starts sputtering amerikkk at the end over and over again
>>19144 It's not really funny, it's horrifying and pitiful.
>>19145 do they keep that horrible ending with the soviet union collapsing and luthor creating krypton?
>>19149 No, Superman pretends to die while sending Braniac's ship into orbit and detonating it, while Luthor and Lois retire, leaving Jimmy Olson to be president and Superman hiding among the population of America.
>>19151 sounds like the soviet union still collapses. mad cringe, and he lives in america? quad cringe!
>>19141 It’s a problem with modern, early-2000 writers like Millar. They’re big fans of the type of assholes with guns rather than supes so they’ll wank those guys to oblivion while nerfing people like Superman. Only Morrison do it right.
