What is Superman: Red Son about?

In the Soviet Union during the year 1946, a young boy is chased by a gang of bullies. A young girl, Svetlana (Winter Ave Zoli), defends him by chasing them away. He reveals to her that he was not scared for his own safety but that of the bullies before demonstrating superhuman strength and the ability to fly. Svetlana tells the boy he can use his powers to help the country.
A decade later, the Soviet Union releases propaganda film of an alien superhuman under the command of Joseph Stalin (William Salyers), whom the American media dubs "The Soviet Superman". United States President Eisenhower tasks Lex Luthor (Diedrich Bader) to develop a countermeasure against the superhuman. Meanwhile, Superman (Jason Isaacs) prevents a satellite from crashing into Metropolis, which leads to Lex's wife Lois Luthor securing an interview with him. She shows him a top secret document that leads Superman to a secret gulag where he finds a dying Svetlana, who was imprisoned there because she knew his real identity. Enraged, Superman confronts Stalin about the gulag and destroys him with his heat vision. As a result, Superman becomes the leader of the Soviet Union, pledging to use his powers for good and to spread the influence of the Soviet state.
Superman uses said powers and influence to stop conflict, bring nations to the Soviet side, and forge an alliance with Wonder Woman (Vanessa Marshall) of Themyscira. Meanwhile, Luthor unveils a clone of Superman, dubbed "Superior Man", made from harvesting Superman's cells from the crashed satellite and remotely powered with an orb of energy before sending it out to confront Superman. The two superhumans battle until Luthor overloads the clone with excess energy, causing it to swell up and degenerate as the fight progresses until it finally collapses and dissolves. Superman is left appalled and sickened by Luthor's actions.
