Superman: The Dark Side is the title of 3 issue limited comic books series. It was published in 1998 by DC Comics as one of their "Elseworlds" titles. The story relates the Superman story imagining he had landed on Apokolips instead of Earth.

Publication history

Superman: The Dark Side was originally published in standard format comic book from August to October 1998. It was subsequently republished in trade paperback in 1999 (ISBN 1563895269).


Kal-El's rocket is diverted from Earth to Apokolips, and Superman is raised by Darkseid. Superman becomes an eager participant in the destruction of New Genesis and a willing disciple of Darkseid. During this comic he wears black and red armor similar to that of Darkseid's son Orion. This armor has a unique Superman logo on it. It is two thunder bolt-shaped S's that form another thunder bolt-shaped S (reminiscent of the logo of the Schutzstaffel - i.e. the SS).
