    Since the whole Rebirth thing started with the revelation that Dr. Manhattan had messed with the timeline as Barry ran through the time stream after fixing Flashpoint, what if "The truth about his life" thing is that Pre-52 Superman and New-52 Superman are each one half of an incomplete being? Everyone knows how powerful Superman was before the reboot in 1986. You know who I mean, the Silver-Age Superman. What if Dr. Manhattan feared that Superman so he found a way to suppress his powers by slitting him into two beings and placed on seperate universes.

    And now that the two have found eachother things are starting to happen to each of them and the only way to fix it, just like in the 90s, is the two halves to come back together. 

    Then Superman becomes the Silver-Age Superman in the modern comics. More powerful than he's been in the past 30 years of comic history.
