Well, in the comics he does die and Batman does kill him with kryptonite ( That's Superman's only weakness.) Because Superman turns bad because of red kryptonite. But that's like waaayyyy after the Justice League.

I don't think that Superman's dead. He's famous for so many years and did so many great things. He is the most popular superhero DC because he is the greatest. There's always a happy ending.
