Default Re: Man of Steel does have kryptonite

That's a really interesting way of looking into it -- I thought that the atmosphere explanation was simply another addition to the Superman mythos -- that is, a much more realistic approach where you consider the biological and environmental implications of alien beings.

It has teh same effect as Kryptonite, but I guess it wouldn't become Kryptonite until Batman coins the damn term and creates some.


THE JUSTICE BULLETIN published some of my thematic analysis on the symbolism in Nolan's superhero saga.
I call it Heroic Archetypes. You can read the parts on Batman Begins in the following links:
