SUPERMAN: THE DARK SIDE examines the sinister ramifications of Superman's escape pod landing on the war-torn planet of Apokolips instead of in the Midwestern cornfields of Earth. In this warped tale, Superman is raised by the tyrannical Darkseid and becomes a savage force of destruction. Devoid of conscience or virtue, the Man of Steel uses his powers to destroy his adopted father's adversaries, the heroes of New Genesis. But when the war against his sworn enemies is over, Superman turns his destructive attention towards Earth and a group of men and women who could have been his friends in another life.
