Superman is raised in the Soviet Union and quickly becomes the icon and champion of his country, inspiring fear in the United States. They quickly hire scientist Lex Luthor to create their own Superman to counteract Russia's own Superman. Superman, meanwhile, makes his presence known in America, saving Luthor's wife, Lois Luthor and making an instant connection with her.
Luthor also creates a number of other villains to send at Superman, none of which are successful.
Superman's personal computer system is Brainiac, who encourages him to take violent actions. When America releases a squad of Green Lanterns against Superman, Superman quickly defeats them by moving faster than the speed of thought.
