In this paper we study a degenerate evolution system $\mathbf H_t +\nabla \times [|\nabla \times \mathbf H|^{p-2}\nabla \times \mathbf H]=\mathbf F$ in a bounded domain as well as its limit as $p\to \infty$ subject to appropriate initial and boundary conditions. This system governs the evolution of the magnetic field $\mathbf H$ in a conductive medium under the influence of a system force $\mathbf F$. The system is an approximation of Bean's critical-state model for type-II superconductors. The existence, uniqueness and regularity of solutions to the system are established. Moreover, it is shown that the limit of $\mathbf H(x, t)$ as $p\to \infty$ is a solution to the Bean model.
