Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, in Rebirth Kyle explains that the reason the rings didn't work on yellow is because there is an emotional spectrum that runs along side the electromagnetic one, with colors corisponding to emotions. Yellow was fear, Green for willpower. This is apparently the canon explination for Paralax et al.
My thought was that if these are universal terms (and they must be for yellow to always be the weakness for the rings) then what does that suggest about Superman? He gets his power from the yellow sun, and his weakness is green kryptonite. It suggests that Supes gets his power from peoples fear, but gets weak in the face of people who make an effort to stand up to him
it would make for a fun Elseworlds story; Superman: the Hero who Bullys!
