Green Peril by Tarzman Green Peril by Tarzman
Here is Supergirl being menaced by Green Kryptonite. I don't even know if the whole idea of kryptonite as a weakness is still used as a plot device in the comics, but I always liked the idea that at any time in a story a being like Superman or Supergirl who ws all powerful could be layed low with a small rock.

Yeah I always found that plot point intriguing. Same with the Linda Carter Wonder Woman who would lose her powers if she lost her belt. That game changing weakness always ensuring that no fight is too one sided. Kryptonite is still "there" In the comics but it's seldom used

Excellent! I love "superheroine-in-peril" pics! Pretty much my entire gallery of commissioned art is devoted to that theme.

No she wasn't wearing kryptonite. i thought of a pose first, and then tried to tell just a bit of a story with it.

Oh yeah its used. Last I checked, Lex Luthor was running around in a Kryptonite suit... a SUIT! Supergirl though (the new one) isn't all that suseptable to the green rock though, don't quite know why not though.

Just to let you know.

It is still used as a plot device... except now Kryptonite comes in all the colors of the rainbow, even in black, which aparently turns supergirl into two supergirls, and evil one and a good one.

Comics man, comics

I know Batman, untrusting as he is, keeps some kryptonite on hand in case Supes goes crazy. At one point, he even had gauntlets of green K constructed and actually had to duke it out with Superman. Even in his weakened state, Supes was almost too much for the Bat. I guess Anger and adrenaline for a Kryptonian is MUCH worse than it is for a human. Hooray tho, for batman, mister "my superpower is I always have a contingency plan"! hell, he has contingency plans in case his contingency plans don't work! One paranoid MF. lol
