Superman: The Man of Tomorrow (MOT) is the title of a comic book series published by DC Comics that ran for 16 issues from 1995 to 1999, featuring the adventures of Superman.[1] At the time, the four Superman titles (Action Comics, The Adventures of Superman, Superman, and Superman: The Man of Steel) were released weekly with an intertwining story. The Man of Tomorrow title was created to fill the extra week in months with five weeks.[2] At about this time, however, DC began its fifth week events, disrupting the schedule of The Man of Tomorrow, and it was subsequently canceled with issue #15.

Issue #1,000,000 of the series was a part of the "DC One Million" storyline, which was a top vote-getter for the Comics Buyer's Guide Fan Award for Favorite Story for 1999.
