Is a dead or dying Superman the ultimate storyline for the character?

IS death the granddaddy story plot for Superman?
DC Comics and Warner Brothers seem  to think it is ....

SPOILERS ahead ....

If you watched the movie "Batman v Superman," you know what happens.

Also in April of 2016, DC is killing off Superman too.

In the JLA Comic No. 8, that I thought was outside the regular DC Comics continuity, Superman is shown as dead in the last panel. His battle with Rao was too much. He had suffered broken ribs, a ruptured spleen and collapsed lung.

Then, the same month in Superman Comic No. 51, Superman is shown to be dying.
His triple whammy of exposure to the firepits of Apokolips, being temporarily powered up by kryptonite when he was powerless and his battle with Rao is slowly killing the Man of Steel.
So, the JLA stories are IN the regular DC universe then?  (That doesn't even add up!)

Anyway, DC -- first you take most of Superman's powers away last year and now he is dead or dying --- what's next? A plausible resurrection?

This Superman dying thing has been overdone as it is.
Please DC, come up with some new twists.
