Default Re: Kill The Kryptonite

The trick to writing with Kryptonite is that the story shouldn't hinge on it. Ie you go leave Superman in a room with a Kryptonite pendent and act all surprised that he escapes and stops your plan.

On the other hand you use it so slow him down or take the time to have a conversation as you send in killer robots.

In Lois and Clark, Lex made a kryptonite cage. Now it sucks for Superman but the story wasn't centered around the cage being Kryptonite. It was a way for Lex to win and gloat. It also forced Superman to think up a real solution.


Its time to be a man..................and run away.
