Man of Steel was a six-issue limited series published on a bi-weekly basis from October until December of 1986. Written and drawn by John Byrne, the series reimagined the origin of Superman and provided a snapshot of the events that first inspired him to become the Man of Steel. This series represents the first official appearance of the Post-Crisis Superman and ignores the continuity presented in previous works.

DC Comics management had wanted to revamp or relaunch the character for years. Details of the rationale, and the history of how the changes came about, can be found here, excerpted from an article by Peter Sanderson, originally presented in Amazing Heroes #96, June 1986.

After the Crisis on Infinite Earths, a 19851986 maxiseries which completely reset the continuity of the entire DC Universe, all of DC's major characters and franchises needed to be updated to reflect the changes in the events of their lives. Multiple story arcs were put out to explain these rebooted versions of popular characters.
