i think the death of ONE of Clark's adoptive parents is necessary -- to keep him humble and show that even with of his great powers, he has limits, and is a SuperMAN, and NOT a god.
But as I said, we're talking about someone who would feel the loss just as keenly if he failed to save anyone. If he only felt grief at the loss of someone important to him personally, if the death of other people didn't matter as much, then he wouldn't really be Superman.
I think that's holding Superman to too high of an ideal...he cares about everyone, but even he's going to feel it more when he loses a parent or other loved one.
