Subj: If Superman's vulnerability to Kryptonite was toned down any further, he'd be immune.

Reply Subj: Then show him respect by taking away his red sunlight and mystical force allergies and toning down his susceptibility to Kryptonite, Mr. Morrison..

Drop those crutches and return to the way things typically were under Berganza, in other words. Challenge yourself to come up with creative means to challenge Superman, or simply throw villains at him who can give him a good fight without resorting to cheap, unimaginative, facile tricks. Also get rid of his need to breath in space, his inability to travel interstellar distances, and his commonly low strength and invulnerability levels. Retcon out all other Kryptonians including Zod (wish you could Kara, too), kill off, retire, or simply do not use characters like Doomsday, Prankster, Toyman, and Darkseid, and most of all, cut out the meta-fiction naval gazing bullshit. Write yourself a term paper if you want to show off your junior college chops and keep it to yourself; leave that garbage out of Superman's life.

No thanks. It needs to be increased IMO, but I do agree with you about the red sunlight. I'd like his susceptibility to be back the way it was before Loeb took over. As for magic, I say keep it. As powerful as Superman is, he needs something other than Kryponite to give him a challenge and not just "good storytelling" or "a bad guy who is a threat to him".
