Superman was a activist-type character back in the late 30s and 40s (from the very start). He was a very socialist kind of superhero who stood up for
the little man against big businesses and so forth... Hence him smashing that car into a wall in Action Comics #1 and all those guys in suits running away.
It seems like to me that Morrison's trying to bring back what he used to be (before WW was even around).
I have to admit however, I think WW can represent this kind of stuff more better as things stand, or at least have the potential to do so.

Ishmael, Moses and Job, knew the divine order.
To my knowledge Reformation Island was a golden age concept that turned a few people around (most prominently Paula Von Gunther) but it was never seen after COIE. Likewise I seem to remember the Amazons hospitality dropping at the same time, they might help shipwrecked people who drifted ashore but they didn't really like if people showed up without someone they trusted (like Donna or Diana).And before Flashpoint, the Amazons were peaceful and truly did appreciate others, to the point of setting up Reform Island as a service to humanity.
