Maybe Im reading too much into it but...

"As the seed of Krypton grew and bloomed. And so began the age of Superhumans."

...It sounds to me as if they want to develop a link between Superman and everyone else. Which. No. Not again.

Or, if it is so, just like Stracynzski's Supreme Power series.

Which plot point was, itself, overly derivative of the Wild Cards books.

Except post Crisis DCU threw that out since there had been costumed heroes for decades before Superman showed up

yeah, and here that doesn't seem to be the case (except if they are going for Johns' Smallville take where the JSA wasa secret group or a group that fell out of favor with the government, which i don't mind, as i loved that take) so this still kinda works.

I'm not sure what you mean. I looked at it as the rise of superheroes in general--and, if you want to go deeper, there is the idea that Morrison put out in JLA and Final Crisis that Earth becomes the Fifth World and it's inhabitants turn into New Gods.
