If this sort of thinking interests you, I’d recommend checking out Red Son by Mark Millar.
It’s an ‘Elseworlds’ story in which baby Kal-El’s ship crashes in the Ukraine instead of Kansas. Superman is taken in by the Soviets and grows up with all the same powers but a Socialist ideology. It shows a whole alternate version of the 20th century and how the rest of the DC Universe changes.
It’s clear that a lot of thought went into it and it’s one of my absolute favorite Superman stories.
