Superman: Red Son

Soviet Superman Must Break You!

Patrick and Dad delve into Elseworlds, and Patrick tries to use Tim Leong’s Superhero infographic book Super Graphic to educate Dad on the multiverse.

Things are a bit more clear to Dad and then the review begins.

Dad understands the first two acts of Red Son fairly well.  The third act causes Patrick to swear with frustration.

Dad is schooled on Brainiac and Green Lantern but cannot get over the concept of shrinking down a city.

Patrick also schools Dad on the Old Testament parallels of Superman and if they are valid.  Dad mocks the concept of a comic book scholar existing in the world.
