Dude, is that Wonder Woman tentacle porn?

I've never gotten a sense that Superman had anything to do with good story telling. But Lex Luthor does have the intelligence of your average Bond villain, never just KILLS THE GOOD GUY WHEN YOU HAVE A CHANCE.

Seriously, folks, you come up with the Kryptonite that weakens Superman to the point where he's weak? That's when you either slit his throat (if his skin softens up) or encase him in concrete with the chunk of kryptonite.

Hmm, how does Superman do with molten steel?

I always get him tulips.... he has a thing for yellow tulips.

I'd buy him a pair of red speedos so he can get back to his proper and classic look.

DC if is not broken do not fix it.

I thought all the colored Kryptonite went away with Byrne's revision in the mid-80's -- what's with the "2011 reset/rewind button"

Crisis on Infinite Earths originally "erased" all the non Green versions of K, but eventually they crept back into canon (but slightly altered):

Mr. Mystlicantspellhisname made some Red K (which temporarily cut his power in half instead of randomly mutating him), but it turned at to be a magic construct, not the real thing. The real Red K was synthetically created later by Ra's La Ghul (using notes from Batman, because Bruce is a paranoid douchebag). This Red K made Supe's skin transparent, resulting in crippling pain from over-absorption of sunlight.

Blue K only worked on Bizarros. It made them smart enough to stop with that damn "ME AM NO BAD!" blather, though it weakened them in the process.

Gold K did shut off Kal-El's powers, but unlike the Pre-Crisis version, it was only for 15 seconds, not permanently.

Black K split Supergirl into 2 separate entities: a good Kara, and an evil Kara.

Silver K drives Kryptonians insane.

Pink Kryptonite....ummm....makes Superman prefer the company of Jimmy to Lois.

There's no Kryptonite in the upcoming "Man of Steel" movie. So it has that going for it.

There's a very small amount of kryptonite in Superman's condoms so he doesn't blow a hole clean through Lois Lane.

Seriously, folks, if you want to have some fun taking the Superman Canon - and playing it straight, just follow the comics' own ground rules ad absurdum - check out Larry Niven's scholarly essay, 'Man of Steel - Woman of Kleenex'.

/seriously, one of the funniest things I've ever read.

And this is why everyone loves Peter David.

Was expecting something about krypton the element.  How disappointing.

Niven's argument that carrying Kal's baby would kill her is incorrect since said baby would only begin developing powers once exposed to sunlight.

Getting said baby in her still presents problems, but once there everything's cool.

Superman gaining his powers through sunlight was a creation of John Byrne in the 80s; Niven wrote his essay in the 60s.

Linked image comes from a fantastic Superman story. It just takes good writing.
