I'm not surprised that artists that drew masculine men in tights may have been living secret sex lives. Society has only become more open quite recently.
I am not the comic buyer, nor was I when superman married Lois Lane. I saw the movies; the first one three times and each time I enjoyed it less. I could not reconcile superman disobeying his father's commandment to not alter earth's history. He spun the globe backward, which I think was a metaphor because the act would have power sanded the planet.
Superman was always too powerful and not. Plus he has Heat Vision. Why? Bad Champions character with a one shot to defeat vulnerability. He did coin two iconic words, superman and kryptonite. Good show. Will current authors come anywhere near that achievement?
If there is a market for a multiverse, another way of saying each story had no connection to any otehr, I again am not the market. I enjoy the hero's journey when characters eventually die. e.g., Gunga Din.
