Re: Man of Steel does have kryptonite
The differences between the atmosphere of Krypton and the atmosphere of Earth might have the same effect that Kryptonite does does in other versions of the Superman story, but that doesn't mean it's the same thing as Kryptonite.
The MoS-Verse/DCCU has made it so that the Kryptonian atmosphere serves as an equivalent to Kryptonite, at least for Superman, but it still lacks the 'genuine article', as it were.
