Read a headline yesterday that said:
Captain America Arrested After Assaulting Woman With Burrito
Two weeks ago, a man dressed as Batman was running around London.
How is this not a great story for a culture reporter to cover? It's a gimme!
I'm now officially starting to root for people dressed as heroes (or villains) to show up in life. If you see any, send them my way. We have a mission together.
Tomorrow...really cool announcement.
PS - Okay, this is insane. After I posted this, I just saw this real article on BBC News. They're LISTENING!
'Kryptonite' discovered in mine
The real kryptonite - Jadarite (NHM)
Very definitely not green
Kryptonite is no longer just the stuff of fiction feared by caped superheroes.
A new mineral matching its unique chemistry - as described in the film Superman Returns - has been identified in a mine in Serbia.
According to movie and comic-book storylines, kryptonite is supposed to sap Superman's powers whenever he is exposed to its large green crystals.
The real mineral is white and harmless, says Dr Chris Stanley, a mineralogist at London's Natural History Museum.
"I'm afraid it's not green and it doesn't glow either - although it will react to ultraviolet light by fluorescing a pinkish-orange," he told BBC News.
