Red Krytonite and Generalissimo = Super-Duane

Cover to All-Star Superman #3, by Frank Quitely
After Exposure to Red Krytonite!...

There are five distinct varieties of kryptonite (green, red, gold, blue, and white), the first three of which are toxic to Superman.
Green kryptonite, the only variety potentially fatal to Superman, induces lassitude and inertia followed by death if not removed in time from Superman's presence.
Red kryptonite inflicts bizarre and unpredictable - albeit temporary and nonfatal - symptoms, as when it divides Superman into twins or transforms him into an infant or a giant ant.
Gold kryptonite
would permanently rob Superman of his
super-powers were he ever to be exposed to its radiations.
These three varieties of kryptonite are similarly hazardous to
Supergirl, Krypto the Superdog, and all other surviving natives of Krypton.
Blue krypiteton is toxic only to
Bizarro creatures. White kryptonite is harmful only to plant life. Whenever the word kryptonite appears in this encyclopaedia without a specific color designation, it is green kryptonite, the most common variety, that is being referred to.
