Purple Kryptonite[1]

Purple Kryptonite is a type of Kryptonite that is purple in color. Its' effects on Superman or other Kryptonians has never been revealed, but it's presumably the same as Green Kryptonite.[2]

When Krypton exploded, a large number of rocks that could be called Kryptonite were launched off into outer space. Some were brown in color, and others were purple Kryptonite.[3]


  • Purple Kryptonite was created by Don Cameron and John Sikela and first appeared in Adventure Comics # 171 (December 1951).[4]
