Pic of the Day 44 - Super Heroes Week 1 - Superman

Superman Dark, from one of the Elseworlds series', by DC Direct.

This is from an Elseworlds story, which used to be "What If?" stories, but I believe now most of them are all in continuity, each now occuring on one of the 52 universes. I could be wrong though, I haven't actually read Infinite Crisis yet. Anyway, several of the Elseworlds stories explore alternate beginnings for Superman, What if he landed 12 hours ealier? What if he landing near Gotham City instead of in Kansas? Or, in this case, what if he landed on Apocalypse and was raised by Darkseid? Well, I guess the answer is he becomes a super-powered conquering prince/son of Darkseid. There's also a Good Superman from this story, so I guess his innate goodness comes out at some point, I don't know, I haven't read the story, called The Dark Side, yet.

This armor is actually really cool. I'm not a huge fan of armor, but this looks pretty impressive.
