In 2003, Mark Millar ("Kick-Ass") dreamt up an alternate reality for Superman in which his Kryptonian spaceship landed in the Ukraine instead of Kansas. The three-issue comic book mini-series was nominated for the 2004 Eisner Award for best limited series.

Now, the fighting game, Injustice Gods Among Us, will include a special Red Son Pack based on that comic book mini-series. In order to receive the pack you'll have to pre-order the game at Gamestop or EB Games.
