What planetary and above character do you guys think has the dumbest weakness? I would say it’s Gladiator. That confidence weakness is just dumb. It really tops kryptonite imo. At least superman can scan for it or just blow it away (which he hardly ever does). Kallark can’t do that at all. All you have to do is bring in someone who’s “that guy” and you win.

That is oversimplifying it. Kryptonite is substance that originates from Superman's home world and it emits a unique type of radiation that can kill kryptonian cells. The "red lamp" simulates red solar radiation and replaces the existing yellow sun radiation in his cells, which effectively de-powers him. Red sunlight in itself doesn't harm him. It merely strips him of his power. They are both logical, thought out weaknesses that do make sense.

Probably Kaminari from BNHA. Using his powers at high voltage fries his brain and turns him into a idiot

Hal's weakness to the colour yellow

In real life confidence is important and can affect a person’s performance. So I don’t see why that’s a dumb weakness. Kryptonite is dumb and was only created because the writers wanted an easy way to depower an overpowered character.

@mickey-mouse: actually kryptonite was created because the guy playing superman on the radio was on vacation. Confidence doesn’t actually make you physically stronger or weaker.

Magetta has a weakness to insults. (Come to think of it, that's kind of a confidence weakness as well).

Wonder Woman can take anything at herself unless it's a bullet because then she dies.

Wonder Woman should be weak to piercing, but not that level. 'Mortal' weapons as Bullets and such, shouldn't do nothing to her, bullets are too common and no special!

Swords, Spears and Axes -'' Should cut and pierce her because of the battle, and she's related to war and that kind of stuff'' That's what I think

It always boils down to someone throwing a rock at him like the plot device it is. And the dude with Superspeed. heighten reaction doesn't move. That's why it's so stupid.

Alan Scott weakness is wood. Example being a wooden baseball bat. What is funnier I remember my jewish friend mentioned a number #2 pencil.

Green Lantern the color yellow. Example being a banana.

A lot of superheroes have or had very dumb weaknesses, but these two the cake.

It does not have to be in the form of a rock.

You can't react to something if you are tricked or caught off guard.

not to mention a lot of time the kryptonite isn't even sealed in lead. it's just hidden somewhere and he doesn't feel the effect of it until someone reveals it. it was there the whole time and he doesn't feel it until someone dramatically reveals it. that bugs me also. king brown has a point. superman can always just move out the way, blow it away, or maybe just search for the ONE substance on earth that he is weakens him.

I think original Green Lantern, Alan Scott had a vulnerability to wood.

This was the first thing on my mind.

Also Wonder Woman for being able to take hits from the likes of Superman but her body can't take a bullet.

she is supposed to be weak to piercing strikes which is bull crap by feats. she has survived and sometimes tanked nuclear missiles which have far more shrapnel and piercing force than one freaking bullet. a missile basically contains every kind of trauma and she can survive that but gets hurt by a single bullet.

His strength is even dumber, he's only strong on Earth cause the atmosphere is different. Superman is a goof

Being weak to a radioactive substance from your home planet where you have no powers isnt stupid. The way its applied sometimes is though

Lead as a weakness for Mon-el is pretty stupid

When Alan Scot had the wood weakness was too. The explanation didnt ring true. So his power comes from the green (the magic bbn of life) meaning he couldnt harm life so couldn't affect trees. In his origin story he killed the bad guys who caused the explosion that killed his friends and made the ring find hin. Shouldnt a power not harming life have not worked to do that.

Wonder Woman being bound by a man is as stupid as it gets.

Classic Dr Fate without his helmet (and its magic) having a lung weakness was also. Especially when he was shown overcome by being lassoed and choked (i mean how does putting a rope around the nwck of a class 100 invulnerable individual allow a normal man to cut off his air supply??

MMH weakness to fire also damn stupid

His strength has nothing ro do with atmosphere he has super strength in many parts of the universe. Hes even flown across it.
