Kyrptonite!Ever wish something from the comics would just jump out into the real world to bite you in the ass? Well, your wishes could be closer than you think, or at least if you’re a Superman buff.

The BCC news reports that a new mineral was discovered in Rio Tinto, Serbia that has the same elemental properties as the fictional Kryptonite from DC comic fame. Dr. Chris Stanley of London’s Natural History Museum reports;

“Towards the end of my research I searched the web using the mineral’s chemical formula – sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide – and was amazed to discover that same scientific name, written on a case of rock containing kryptonite stolen by Lex Luthor from a museum in the film Superman Returns.

“The new mineral does not contain fluorine (which it does in the film) and is white rather than green but, in all other respects, the chemistry matches that for the rock containing kryptonite.”

So rejoice, Lex Luthors of the world. Your quest for world domination and ridding yourselves of pesky flying strongmen in tights is one step closer to realization.
