James, it certainly will give you a variety of options.  I would vote against green.  Maybe you could score some Red like they used on the TV show that made Superman apathetic.  That would certainly force others to step-up, don't you think?[/quote]

Hey SoaP,

When I initially proposed feeding Mr. Man a bowl of kryptonite cereal, I was leaning toward the gold variety:

[!--QuoteBegin--][/span][table border=\"0\" align=\"center\" width=\"95%\" cellpadding=\"3\" cellspacing=\"1\"][tr][td]Quote [/td][/tr][tr][td id=\"QUOTE\"][!--QuoteEBegin--]Gold Kryptonite exposure permanently removes superpowers from Kryptonians like Superman.[/quote]

This would make him just like every other citizen of Metropolis, and remove their dependence on him.

But after looking at that link on types of Kryptonite, I would say that, instead, every citizen of Metropolis should dive into a bowl of healthy kryptonite X:

[!--QuoteBegin--][/span][table border=\"0\" align=\"center\" width=\"95%\" cellpadding=\"3\" cellspacing=\"1\"][tr][td]Quote [/td][/tr][tr][td id=\"QUOTE\"][!--QuoteEBegin--]Kryptonite-X bestows temporary superpowers to Terran lifeforms.  Kryptonite-X, a synthetic variation,  was created by Supergirl as a potential cure for exposure to Green Kryptonite. Kryptonite-X accidentally imbued Linda Lee Danver's pet cat, Streaky with super-powers.[/quote]

This would allow the Metropolitans to be able to do the same things that Superman does, and at the same time, would lessen their dependence on him...

But it seems that such powers have always been available to the citizens of Metropolis. When they began living in the city, they were given a life-long supply of this miracle worker.

Some use it every once in a while... Some don't even realize that it's stored in their pantry. Some spend hours upon hours denouncing the effects of it... And some have concluded that to use it, would be unlawful. All in all, many don't bother with it because they would rather have Superman flying around, handling everything for them.

I took off my blue pajamas a long time ago... I hung-up my cape, and put on my wide rimmed glasses. I realized that there was much for me to do, but the other citizens had been leaving almost everything up to me. Just recently, I remembered that I had some of this X stuff stored on the top of my fridge.

When I was the Man, the power that this stuff gives flowed through my veins... But in the midst of keeping up with the rest of the city, helping the needy, rescuing those in peril... I forgot that this power was available to all of Metropolis.

I still remember what it's like to fly... But I've been keeping my feet on the ground, so as not to attract too much attention... I still do a lot of those same things, but my cape now hangs in the closet. At times I'm tempted to put it back on... but the closet is where I intend it to stay.

But wait... Maybe I could get the others to start eating X, at least in small doses?

Maybe one day, with enough convincing... maybe they'll start gobbling it down? Maybe they'll dump the twinkies and the ho-ho's?...

Maybe one day, it will be a main staple?

Maybe?... One day?...

We can all be Superman!

Maybe... One day...

Here's another epiphany from the Fortress of Solitude.

I'm thinking our churches should become more like the residents of Smallville rather than the citizens of Metropolis.  It seems to me that to the people of Smallville, Superboy was more of a useful hand in time of trouble.  Metropolis has become more like a crack-house--where they stand around waiting for their Superman \"fix\".  Superboy only pops-up when thing are really bad because he is busy living his own life, being a teenager, and longing for Lana to lose to the necklace of Kryptonite.  

Now Superman has all his own problems.  That kooky wife of his is always finding ways to become the \"damsel in the dress that's in distress.\"  But the citizens of Metropolis don't care that he has a damsel in dress... they just want him to save the day.  Whenever Superman is not around they gripe and moan and say, \"Superman betrayed us.\"  

Smallville, I dare say, is more what it should be like.  They are a community, not a city.  It is a place where everybody knows everybody else.  They try to be there for one another.  They reach out a helping hand whenever possible.  Superboy is just another friend that is there to help them through the darkest days.

  :lookaround:  ???
