The 1993 SkyBox Return of Superman trading card set chronicles the story of Superman’s triumphant return following his battle with Doomsday. Every aspect of the best-selling comic book arc was covered by SkyBox in several Superman sets from the early 1990s. This set follows the Reign of the Supermen comic story. Each card features an action illustration with a silver border of Superman shields. The back of the cards retell the story of Superman’s return from death.

Cards from this set are fairly easy to track down and sealed boxes are often sold on eBay. Four foil cards are more rare and four promo cards regularly appear on the secondary market. This collection is a follow-up to 1992 SkyBox Doomsday: Death of Superman and is a precursor to the 1994 SkyBox Superman Man of Steel cards which tell the entire Superman story from Krypton to Doomsday.
