Reign Of The Superman the sequel of Death of Superman

“Reign of the Supermen!” was a multi-part storyline published in alternating Superman titles from June-October of 1993. The story followed events that first took place during the “Death of Superman” storyline, as well as the follow-up story-arc “Funeral for a Friend”.

The storyline is significant for not only resurrecting the DCU’s most famous super-hero, but also because it chronicled the destruction of Coast City at the hands of Mongul and the Cyborg Superman. While this event is only tangentially tied to the Superman mythos, its reverberations had lasting effects which culminated in the three-part Green Lantern story-arc “Emerald Twilight”.
