Lex Luther and Batman (among others) both know and use Kryptonite against Superman. But what about the man on the street? Has the Wikipedia of the DC verse figured it out yet, or has it somehow been kept a secret?

This question pertains to the main canon Comic books (New 52) and Movie canon.

  • I reckon it changes from canon to canon, are you referring to one in particular? I know in one, he gave a press conference and told the world he was weak to Kryptonite, I think he wanted to sound as transparent as he could to everyone he was trying to protect. – Daft Feb 2 '15 at 14:07
  • I suppose I'm interested in the current 'main' canon. So, movies and the new 52? – Fhnuzoag Feb 2 '15 at 14:14
  • Maybe pop that into your question? Could help someone track down an answer for you. – Daft Feb 2 '15 at 14:20

    You “suppose” you’re interested in the current main canon? You need to pick your canon son! This isn’t make-believe fun-tim story-hour, this is comics! GO BIG OR GO HOME! – Paul D. Waite Feb 2 '15 at 14:35
  • Paul is right Fhnuzoag, people are VERY particular about canons around these parts... – Daft Feb 2 '15 at 14:42

The government recently detonated a Kryptonite bomb (Action Comics 32) in the atmosphere so I'm pretty sure a few people are going to figure it out.

Kryptonite bomb in the atmosphere

In the news clip intro to Action Comics' 33 there's mention of it in what I assume to be a publicly available publication although it could be simply the author's "Last week on Superman".

Periodical about Kryptonite

Seems likely that
