Real Kryptonite Discovered

Superman BeginsA new mineral discovered by geologists in Serbia shares virtually the same chemical composition as Kryptonite used by the Superman's nemesis Lex Luthor to weaken him in the film "Superman Returns". Apparently, the scientific name written on a case of rock containing kryptonite stolen by Lex Luther from a museum in the film Superman Returns nearly matches the composition of the new mineral discovered.

But don't expect green crystals, the new mineral discovered is actually a white powerdery substance, which leads me to believe they still haven't discovered the real Kryptonite. We Superman fans know better. Who knows was missing element might cause the powerdery substance to become green crystals?

After all, Richard Pryor in Superman III couldn't figure out the "unknown" component in Kryptonite so he added "tar" instead which resulted in Superman becoming a bad guy.

Kryptonite is real and so is Superman. Just tune your TV to the CW Thursday nights at 8pm and you'll see the real kryptonite and Superman. Don't tell me it's fake. Everything on TV is reality TV shows these days -  American Idol, Survivor, Hogan Knows Best, The Real World, etc. so it must be real, right? Of course, many would argue "reality TV" isn't "real" at all. Just don't be telling me Superman doesn't exist. I'm still getting over the whole Santa Claus thing.

Hat tip to Rich, who knows I'm a Superman fan like Seinfeld. I'm a fan of everything from the original B&W Superman series to Christoper Reeves in Superman I, II, and III (IV is too forgettable to mention), to Lois & Clark TV series, to Smallville, and lastly to the Superman Begins movie.
