    It was explained, right back to Action Comics #590 where John Byrne shows us the remaining earths merging into one, up to Dan jurgens' own recapping a few years ago and showing the main ingredients to be Earth's 1 & 2... Earth-2's sensibilities in particular being something very obvious to see in the remodelled post -1986 Superman landscape.

At the end of COIE, the surviving characters of various Earths populated the last remaining Earth (E1, I believe).

There was no indication that ANY of the survivors had their history or memories re-written. No indication that ANY had forgotten about the Crisis except at the very end when Pirate non-sensically says that no one remembers the COIE or the multiple earths.

Therefore, we are left with the whereabouts of E2 Superman in his paradise dimension and E1 Superman one of the survivors on the lone single earth.

Then one day Byrne's reboot hits. No explanation as to how/why this happened! None! Is this the E1 Superman rebooted? If so, then how? And why *just* him when other characers, such as Batman, retained bronze age history and memories?

Or was E1 Superman simply "vanished" somewhere and the post-crisis guy a new and distinct guy?

The point is, the post-crisis establishment made it clear the silver/bronze age of Superman "never happened."

Lots of unanswered questions here about the whereabouts of E1 Superman that are unique to him! Other characters retained their histories and memories!
