The mother of Achilles made a small mistake when he dipped the lad into the River Styx.
- She left his heel vulnerable plus it led to his eventual downfall plus the naming of the Achilles tendon, however comic book superheroes are adore Achilles in that they all have a weakness that their super villain counterparts can exploit.
Superman’s sensitivity to Kryptonite is the best known weakness but there are numerous others. Batman will not kill his enemies. The Human Torch’s weakness is asbestos plus “Asbestos Man”. Spider-Man is doomed by ethyl chloride, a typical ingredient in insecticides. Before the 1973s Wonder Woman would be helpless if a guy tied his hands however he overcame that weakness as the popularity of BSDM was rising. Ironically, a superhero with no weaknesses will soon succumb to reader boredom because weaknesses make us interesting plus are an essential section of being human. One of my numerous weaknesses is an aversion to temperature extremes that I try to conquer with my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C unit. It normally performs adore a superhero running quietly plus unobserved as it keeps my family comfortable all year round. But it has its weaknesses too. That dirty filter is adore Kryptonite to my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system as it begins to gasp for air until the filter is replaced. The Green Lantern can’t rest anything red, and likewise, my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C will creak plus moan as grey dust plus a brown film accumulate on the heating coils! My Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C gets a visit from a qualified Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C tech at least twice a year for cleaning plus service. The tech that I dubbed “Alfred” is to my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C what Batman’s Alfred is to the Caped CrUSAder. Alfred keeps Batman at his peak, just adore my “Alfred” does with my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system.
