Kryptonite - Deadly green substance that saps Superman of his strength on the science fiction series ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN/SYN/1952-58 and sequel TV series.

Comic book Superman confronted with Kryptonite

Much like the Fonz, Superman was the toughest guy on the block, but in the presence of Kryptonite, (the remnants of the exploded planet Krypton where Superman was born), he began to lose his super abilities. Prolonged exposure to this deadly green substance (harmless to humans) would cause his death. See also METALS & MINERALS

TRIVIA NOTE: On the situation comedy FRASIER/NBC/1993-2004, it was revealed that whenever either psychiatrist brothers Frasier or Niles Crane needed to be swayed into doing something they didn't want to do, one only needed to use a quote from Sigmund Freud to get their help. This was the "Crane Boy's Kryptonite."
