Kryptonite ... strange meteorite meme.  In an old Dr Who, the meteorites were aliens, who turned into giant plant monsters, beloved by "Green Thumbs" everywhere.

Probably looked over by the unmoving angels.

Those are rated as the scariest Dr Who villains of all time!

Either that, or sentient plastic.

Poly-esther?  Sounds like a cross between a parrot and a Jewish woman ;-))

Oh I love Superman.  Somehow, flying around the Earth fast reverses time.  My favorite thing was when, in one comic, he held a jet from flying.  Now wait a few...  It is one thing to use his super strength to hold something when he has something else to hold onto or crush stuff in his hands (never mind that COAL is plant material and can't be turned into diamond). 

But when he holds a flying jet just by standing on the Earth, all he has is his weight.  And I don't think even DC Comics claimed he weighed 80 tons.  That would have crushed the floors of The Daily Planet offices.  LOL!  IIRC, Marvel comics even made fun of that decades ago.  'Nuff Said'...
Did you notice that the lump of coal and the diamond were the same size?
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

Yes, but I didn't want to quibble too much in one post.  As I also didn't mention that when he caught bullets in his hands they should have been flattened, knives don't actually shatter, and he doesn't routinely snap pens in his hand, LOL!
