    I dont understand why would bat suit be vulnerable to cryptonite ? What has bat suit connection to cryptonite ? How does it make sense if it's only weakness for Superman/Supergirl and now it's batman weakness too.

    Because the writers are going to need it to be?

    Don't make a lot of sense to me, either. But I haven't yet seen this episode, so I may change my mind afterwards.

    The explanation they gave is that Kryptonite is rare (though National City has some) and has properties outside of radiation that make it tougher than a bullet. So while the batsuit is bullet-proof it cannot withstand with being shot with shards/bullets made of Kryptonite.

    This is a different universe than the comics and the writers clearly wanted Kate and Supergirl's relationship to play into this as well. It gives greater meaning/reason for Kate to gain a shard of Kryptonite during Crisis. Means it can be used in the show even when Supergirl or Superman are not guest starring.

    So, as I said... The writers want it that way. From a technical perspective, the explanation given is the hardness of Kryptonite allows it to penetrate when bullets can't.... Too bad they trashed their own theory when they crushed a sample in the press...

    Kryptonite is supposedly remnants of the plant Krypton, which exploded. As such, it *should* be far more rare than it seems to be in the DC universe presented on CW. It's just like the secret identities; everyone and their mother seems to know Supergirl's secret identity as well as having a stash of Kryptonite.
