What is this? Perhaps you comic book geeks knew this already, but this is news to me.

The radio show also provided the Superman mythos with one of its most enduring elements. The actor who played Superman was to go on vacation. The scripters, looking for a way to write the lead character out of the show for a week, invented an element that would rob Superman of his powers and even kill him with prolonged exposure. And so kryptonite came into existence. Superman fell prey to a trap, and generic moans were used each day to indicate an incapacitated and increasingly weaker hero. Batman took over the action duties, looking to locate and free his fellow crimefighter before it was…too late. Afterwards, the writers of Superman’s comic book adventures eagerly glommed onto this Achilles’ Heel for their character. The omnipotent Superman was difficult to keep exciting, since he was never in genuine real danger.

Destined to fight the world's evil, The WAMBAG endures massive battles involving impossible stunts, races on horse-pulled carriages, and the desecration of enchanting medieval castles (all done with dizzying computer graphics). Not only does the eye candy keep on coming, the tongue-in-cheek writing and deep Transylvanian accents perfect the film with a dose of dark humor.

Apparently PHP7 doesn't support the same function calls I wrote in 2008? I should fix this at some point.
