Book Your Kryptonite Tour Now
Serbians must be breathing a sigh of relief at the news there is now a real reason for tourists to visit Serbia. With the scrapping of the Samantha Fox statue and the lack of world acclaim for the decision to build a Rocky Balboa statue in the village of Zitiste, things were looking shaking until the recent discovery of kryptonite on Serbian land.
Yep, that magical mineral previously thought to come from Superman's home planet has now been unearthed by mining giant Rio Tinto in Jadar, Serbia. It's actually a new mineral but coincidentally it matches exactly to the invented formula for Superman's kryptonite. Unfortunately, it's going to get named jadarite after the Serbian town, but we think there's definite potential for a big Superman statue now.
