It seems like you have a pretty good list of the most critically acclaimed Superman stories in the Modern Age. The few suggestions I have are:

Superman: Peace by Paul Dini and Alex Ross

Final Crisis: Superman- Beyond 3D by Grant Morrison and Doug Mahnke

Superman in the 50's and 60's- Compilations with forwards by Mark Waid (because I'm a sucker for the Golden Age)

Action Comics #1 (the original because, hey, it's the book that started it all)

And for my most controversial selection: The Kingdom by Mark Waid because even though it wasn't as good as Kingdom Come, I still liked it a lot.

Oh! And Reign of the Supermen which was the story that followed his death. That was a lot of fun.

Very Good List. I would put Emperor Joker on there. And I'm personally not a big fan of Public Enemies because I don't like the art and there are some silly bits that are ridiculous such as the composite Superman Batman rocket but that is more of a personal preference. Great List Brah!
