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.
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).
