‘“It is a pretty big deal doing it with Jon Kent as Superman,” Son of Kal-El artist John Timms told IGN. “As we have seen Jon grow up in front of our eyes, it will be interesting to see him not only trying to find himself as a person but a global super hero in the complex atmosphere of modern life. On the other hand, I hope this kind of thing will not be seen as a big deal in the future. You could visualize how it could pan in the future when the most powerful man in the world is part of the LGBT community.”’ ~ GIZMODO

When it’s done gratuitously i.e. for its own sake, it kinda sucks, but when it’s framed and set up properly, as is the case here, it’s challenging, inspirational, and genuine, and a great way for old franchises to rejuvenate themselves and remain relevant and avoid becoming dinosaur tales for dinosaur people. It’s that simple.
