What do you think would happen if we turned a kryptonite inducing light of pinpoints size on any of the Kryptonians? Aiming for pressure points or acupunction points of course.

What if we increased the width of the light to cover certain portions of the body?

Would it be possible to make one of supermans arms weaker to say human level or less? What if we did that to his head? Would he catch a headache?

Does turning it only on one part of his body screw up his or other krypotians entire body?

Well, that's a rather... Odd question (;)). Interesting, nonetheless.

I think that it would spread to the rest of his body. But that's just me.

EDIT: Who's the guy in your avatar?

his name is ID, he's from a Video Game called Xenogears.



Id
Id, a form of the subconscious mind according to psychologist Sigmund Freud, is Fei's destructive side. This coincides with Freud's principle of the "Id" versus the "Super-ego" (see: Ego, super-ego, and id). The Id is the "instinct" side of the subconscious: it craves self-gratification. The Super-ego, in turn, is the logical and less instinctual side. Moreover, the Ego is the side that decides the balance between the Id and the Super-ego. In this case, Fei is the Super-ego. Id wants to destroy everything and cause chaos, while Fei's Super-ego side is stable and peaceful. The third, recessive persona existed as a catalyst and the balance between the two: the Coward, which is a representation of the aforementioned "Ego" in Freudian psychology. In Fei's case, this takes us into Dissociative Identity Disorder, or DID for short. This is also known as Multiple Personality Disorder. When Id asserts himself, Fei's hair eyes and skin change color. His brown hair turns crimson, his brown eyes turn bright yellow and his dark tanned skin turns a sickly pale. In some cases it has been documented that when various personalities assert themselves people have been known to change eye color in a blink [citation needed]. The seeds of Id were planted because of the trauma that Fei suffered as a child at the hands of his mother, Karen Wong. As a small boy, Karen was possessed by Miang. Fei was taken to testing labs and hurt mentally and physically. When he dissociates, he becomes insane, destructive, and extremely powerful. Because of this, Fei was indirectly responsible for his mother's death, as well as the destruction of Lahan Village. Also, there is a scene in "Xenogears" where Fei sees into his subconscious mind. He sees the "Coward" personality, and the "Id" personality. The Coward and Id walk off, then Id says to Fei, "Sorry, but you can't come.". Whenever Id surfaced Fei's Gear Weltall transformed into Weltall-Id, a blood red Gear of incredible power with six glowing wings made of energy.

Cool. Thanx for the thorough information. PS2-only, right? Is there an anime based on this game?

EDIT: I know. Kinda off-topic, isn't it? ;)

This game actually came out for the PS1.

I don't mind, any conversation is a good conversation so long as it doesnt involve arguing.

Ah, PSOne? Thankfully, I have an emulator. So playing it won't be a problem. Any good?

Those japanese guys, they always come up with cool stuff.

Yeah, its one of the PSones greatest hits, though its hella long, and very very wordy. the graphics were neat for its time and the game play system itself will keep you playing for a good while. The characters are memorable, and the story itself is very will done.

The way I see it working on Supes is similar to how radiation on Earth affects the average human. The K-radiation woudn't be restricted to just that given part of his body, but the whole thing. Idunno just my guess.
