As for definitive Superman, there's really isn't one in comics. It comes down to favorite, Alex Ross'.
And in your defense, Cavill doesn't look anything like Ross' Superman.
My personal definitive version of the character has always been John Byrne's Man of Steel. There's something about the way he draws him that's just so...Superman. Having said that, I understand (and see) Cavill's resemblance to other artists depictions of the character.
