This preview is pretty neat. Superman originally started in an era when there were not a lot of ways to protect the common man from the whim of the rich and from big business. Seeing as how many in the US (and Canadian) Government wish to return to this era, it seems like a great moment for Superman to return to his original form.

Also, the original Superman never had Ma and Pa Kent to teach him right from wrong. He was raised in an orphanage. Any word on how this versions adopted parents will fit into the picture?
Morrison says both Kents are dead by the time Superman makes his debut, but they did provide the basis of his moral outlook.

The Kents adopting him has been part of the Superman story since ( the original ) Superman #1 from 1939.
The is a nice Wikipedia summary here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_and_Martha_Kent

So we are basically going back to the pre-Crisis status of the Kents.
