Sorry Guys, I know this has probably been asked a thousand times, but i just recently found my copy of 'The Death of Superman', and i can't for the life of me remember what happens afterwards.  Like, I remeber that thousands of DC heroes come to Metropolis for Supe's funeral, and I rememer Batman taking care of the streets for a while, but anything else is a blank.  

How does Superman come back to life?

50 years later, superman is brought back to life as a robot. scientists brought him back to life. personally, i dont like the whole idea of superman being a robot but anyway, thats what happens.

I am The Rokyn. You are a Rokyn. We are all Rokyns. But, i chose the name first so you can just call me "The Rokyn."  Rokyn means "gift of God"

Reports of Superman's death have been greatly exagerated.

Superman is a living solar energy battery. So, the Eradicator saved his body still filled with a few energy and put it in a machine that could restore his power.
Meanwhile, Pa Kent saved Kal's soul when he was dying for an heart attack. Jonathan survived, but there was no sight of his son.
Weeks later, the machines of the Fortress and this event made Superman back to life.
Superman knew the truth thanks to Dr. Occult.

Minor correction: The Eradicator used a Kryptonian Regeneration Matrix to help heal Kal-El's fatal injuries.  The matrix regeneration was assisted by the yellow solar energy environment of Earth.  The fortress drew upon extra yellow sun energy to help restore Superman and this nearly overloaded the fortress' systems if Kal hadn't been disgorged from the matrix.  Kal-El was well and truly categorically dead.  Only the Eradicator's matrix in the yellow sun environment which restored his body, and Jonathan's recovering Clark's soul in the afterlife made it possible for Superman to be revived.

But in comic book time, he was dead for a very short amount of time. Less time than say...Hal Jordan, Green Arrow, Ras al Ghul, Jason Todd, or even Aunt May. So his death wasn't a big deal.

For him to have a funeral as big as he did was too much. Pre-Crisis, it would have made sense, because he was the first superhero. Post-Crisis, he was not the first "meta-human" and had been in Metropolis less than 10 years. And they should know by now that nobody stays dead...heck, none of Superman's villians did!

The storyline did  draw new fans to the Superman comics, who stayed until Zero Hour the next year.
