THE MAN OF STEEL #1
SUPERMAN v2 #1
Writer/Artist John Byrne was handed the task of recreating the Superman mythos.
The guiding principle of this revised version was that Superman was the last son of Krypton: gone were Supergirl and the Super-pets, along with Superman's career as Superboy. Perhaps the most effective change, however, was made to Lex Luthor: the mad scientist was replaced with a brutal capitalist.
Byrne began with THE MAN OF STEEL, a 6-issue mini-series, retelling Superman’s story beginning with his origin.
ACTION COMICS #584
After a 6-month break, the Superman titles returned in
ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #424
SUPERMAN began with a new series beginning with issue #1. The original SUPERMAN series was retitled THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN and continued the original numbering, starting with #424. ACTION COMICS picked up where it left off at issue #584, converting to a team-up series featuring different guest-stars in every issue. Byrne handled the writing and art on SUPERMAN and ACTION COMICS, while THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN was created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist Jerry Ordway.
