Well, your question kind of answers itself. It's exactly because Superboy has the potential as a character to so perfectly embody the themes of "Kingdom Come" that the conflict comes into play. The question then becomes, can either Superman or Superboy rise above their respective beliefs to do what is right?
Ultimately, the story you and Karl Moline are telling seems to be one of honor. It's all about who has the right to carry this mantle. What about the story you're telling together speaks to the core idea of what Superman is and who he's supposed to be?
It's a little less about the right to carry the mantle as, ultimately, the maturity to understand what the mantle embodies. What if winning a greater war requires the maturity to accept losing a battle? What does it take to learn that respect isn't granted because you have powers but because of how you choose to use those powers?
Pitting Kon-El vs. "Kingdom Come" Kal-El makes for tailor-made conflict to address all these questions.

Pak can't answer what Superman's reaction will be to the villain's reveal without getting into spoilers, but will say that "everything that happens to Superman is tweaking his thinking in certain ways. These are new experiences and there are going to be consequences to them."
Plus, he adds, "not everything gets put back into a neat box. Certain things can't be tied up so easily and certain locks may be broken."
And when Superman fan base gets a full look at this insane threat, Pak hopes they'll "be surprised and deliciously freaked out," he says. "The joy of thrillers and horror stories is it gives us a safe place to indulge in the worst fears we have. It's that kind of crazy thing where we laugh the most when we go to horror moves - it's our nature."
