Sueprgirl is listed as the star of this issue, but Action 685 (Dec. 92) is really a wide-ranging story, by Stern, Guice and Rodier, and the second chapter of Funeral for a Friend.

Cadmus wants the corpse of Superman, and the Guardian gets into a conflict with Maggie Sawyer, Dan Turpin and the MSCU over his corpse.  Supergirl dives down into the midst of the debacle to bring some sanity, and the MSCU remove his body.

The issue, in fact this who story arc, has no many great little scenes.  Lana Lang calls the Kents, after seeing the news of Superman’s death.

Even the ending, with Bibbo praying, made me choke up.

The story continues in the next issue of Superman – The Man of Steel.
