Should Green Kryptonite be the only type of Kryptonite?

Quite literally, the radioactive remains of Krypton, Kryptonite radiation is deadly to Superman in it’s standard green variety. Other color versions have come and gone over the years, each having a different effect… some silly, some interesting.

Another instance where the real issue is the overuse of plot devices. Using the Smallville version of Red K as an example, the point should not be to simply show Kal-El out of control. Instead it should be to reveal aspects of his personality that he normally keeps hidden, or truths that he doesn’t share with peope close to him.

As someone who thinks Kryptonite is very overplayed, I think Green Kryptonite is more than enough.

As a long time fan of Superman, there has been in the comics a lot of different kryptonites. Having known of green to gold types, it gives a bit of story line to build from.
