"Under a Red Sun" is the tenth episode of the first season of Justice League Action. It is the overall tenth episode of the series.
Steppenwolf intends to destroy Superman on a red sun planet while Batman and Big Barda try to find them to save their colleague.
Big Barda detects the arrival of a squadron of parademons and another entity. She, Superman and Batman battle them in a warehouse. Superman spots a figure high up and knocks it down into the light - it is Steppenwolf. He opens a travel portal and takes himself and Superman away to a rocky, desert planet with a red sun.
There, Steppenwolf tells Superman that he intends to win favour with his master, Darkseid, by being immortalised as the one who killed Superman. His ray blasts cause Superman to retreat and he dons his astro-harness to go in pursuit assisted by two parademons.
Batman and Barda wonder where Superman has gone and they decide to go to Steppenwolf's planet, Apokolips, to rifle through his records. They travel there through a portal, enter Darkseid's citadel and go to Steppenwolf's war-room. They find that there are too many possible planets for them to locate Superman and Virman Vundabar, Steppenwolf's partner, appears and opposes them. They threaten to crush him under a heavy weight unless he tells them where Superman is.
Powerless, Superman uses his scouting skills to avoid Steppenwolf and destroys the parademons. He then jumps on the flying Steppenwolf and causes him to crash and overpowers him even though he has broken his leg. Batman and Barda appear from a portal and they all leave together with the captured Steppenwolf.
