I'd much rather it be the tornado, or any natural human way of dying.

If he was killed by Zod/Faora or anything remotely alien related, then there is a reason for Clark to feel 'guilty' about it.

If he dies of something completely out of his hands, it causes him to feel helpless and frustrated, but it doesn't become 'all his fault'.

I'd rather he was roaming the earth and feeling depressed because his father tragically died, than if he was doing it just because he was feeling a bit blue one day...

Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.

'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
