First of all, I find it sad that the word "yet" was used in your sentence. Not that you were wrong to do so, but that death has become such a joke in the Marvel and DC universes that it is not a matter of "if" a character will come back more as "when".
As for "when" Superboy will return; no, he isn't back yet. In Teen Titans, Robin was attempting to clone Connor and failed, and he and Wonder Girl seemed to come to terms with his demise.
Personally, I think he should stay dead. All characters should stay dead. Make death mean something again and whenever a writer is thinking of killing someone off, make it a huge deal rather than the revolving door it has become.
I so agree with you. Death is meaningless in the comics because they never have the fortitude to let them stay dead. What good is dying if you know they will be back in 6 months to a year? Very sad...
