Superman did not die he was just in coma. His heart was so low that it was nearly undetectable. Yeah it stupid and a letdown but that how it goes.

and there was also the story where Pa Kent has the heart attack and meets up with Clark in the afterlife and convinces him not to go with the demon things

Him dying makes more sense. Also, back in Infinite Crisis, towards the end, they said that Doomsday killed Superman. Just before the 2 Supermen beat his a*s off.

@Z3RO180: it was during the whole Death and Return of Superman story arc after Superman had died and right after the Kents had heard the news Pa had a heart attack and while he was unconscious and close to death he met up with Superman in the afterlife where some demons disguised as Kryptonian priests were trying to convince him to go with them but Pa convinced him not to and Superman sent him through a portal or something back to his body and he woke up

I believe that the final word on the subject was that he did actually die but his physiology when reacting to yellow sun light basically makes it so the rules of death are different for kryptonians. Think Highlander, the immortals do technically die when a fatal injury occurs they just come back. Superman just required a bit more of a push.

I think it's a bit hard to quantify what death is for a yellow-sun powered Kryptonian at this point.
