LOS ANGELES — Not to be confused with Kryptonite X, which restored Superman's powers during the Reign of the Supermen (1993) comic books' storyline, X-Kryptonite is discovered by Morgan Edge (Adam Rayner) in this week's episode of "Superman & Lois," Haywire.
X-Kryptonite first appears in "Action Comics" No. 261 (1960), and it has the ability to endow normal people with Kryptonian abilities. X-Kryptonite was accidentally created by Supergirl in the pages of DC Comics nearly 60 years ago.
One of the most notable instances of X-Kryptonite's minacious effect occurs in the pages of "Superman Family" No. 203 (1980) when Ellie Leeds is exposed to the Kryptonite isotope, but her body can't handle her new powers.
As a result, Ellie slips into a seven-year coma.
While this version of Kryptonite can be advantageous for human beings, those whose bodies can stand the strain, X-Kryptonite also strips Kryptonians of their superpowers. So, it's discovery on "S&L" should provide plenty of plot points for Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) and the rest of the Kent family.
