Although Neal Adams is credited by many collectors for the first cover showing Superman exploding free from iron chains which have bound him, the powerful image actually dates back to Fred Ray’s cover for Superman #11 from July 1941. Neal Adams, however, undoubtedly popularized the motif, even swiping/homaging his own work on Superman #233 in January 1971 for a variety of characters and publishers, as you will see below.

More information about Neal Adams appears on the Superman #233 homage page.
