What does you're my kryptonite mean?
Similarly, what does it mean when you say someone is your kryptonite?
It only means that the person or object referred to, for some reason, makes one lose one's resolve, rendering a person easily influenced or coerced to doing something they're usually not predisposed to doing. In other words, “kryptonite” in this context is a metaphor of “weakness”.
Likewise, what was kryptonite to Superman? Kryptonite is a fictional material that appears primarily in Superman stories. In its most well-known form, it is a green, crystalline material originating from Superman's home world of Krypton, that emits a peculiar radiation that weakens Superman, but is generally harmless to humans when exposed to it in short term.
Keeping this in consideration, what would be your kryptonite?
Kryptonite was the green radioactive material from Superman's home planet Krypton. It is his ultimate natural weakness. Anytime Lex Luthor and The Legion of Doom wanted to shut down Superman's strength, they would somehow get him to come in contact with kryptonite. Kryptonite was Superman's Achilles heel.
What is the opposite of kryptonite?
While our traditional Green Kryptonite is completely harmless to humans and very deadly to Superman, Anti-Kryptonite is the exact inverse of this concept and is very deadly to humans but has no effect on Superman or any other Kryptonian living under a yellow sun.
