Lot of buzz this week about a compound found in Serbia that matches a description of kryptonite (http://tinyurl.com/2ohfnr) seen in the movie, Superman Returns (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman_Returns). Very cool, except the description was not of kryptonite.

First, in the movie, the kryptonite was clearly inside the meteorite on display, but did not form the entirety of the meteorite. Lex Luthor used special optics to spot the green k inside the rock, and his boy Kumar cracked the rock open to get at the deadly center. The chemical description was of the rock that surrounded the kryptonite, not the kryptonite itself.

Second, Lex Luthor can read. If that compound really was kryptonite, he wouldn't need special equipment to spot it; he could've just used his eyes.

I know I told people not to waste their time on Superman Returns (http://sumocat.blogspot.com/2006/07/back-from-superman-returns.html), but maybe some of you should so you can stop wasting everyone else's time with uninformed topics of interest.

  1. So...are you planning to see Spidey 3, or are you purely a DC man?

  2. I'd have to be pretty hardcore anti-Marvel to not see Spider-Man 3, and I am definitely going to see it. Best superhero movie franchise ever!
