Achilles' Heel

The Super Friends desperately battle the World Beater, searching for his Achilles' Heel.[1]

An Achilles's Heel was any type of weakness a character might have had.

Superman for example, was weakened by Green Kryptonite; making that his Achilles' Heel.

The term originated from Greek mythology, a reference to the legendary Achilles, who was a demigod and a soldier during the Trojan War.
