    I think you see weakness in a very
    strange way. Captain America and Spider-Man dying in outer space is not a
    weakness, it is simply a limitation of their durability.

    Kryptonite is a specific weakness in that it can be used as a
    weapon. In fact, it was 'invented' to give Superman any sort of
    weakness.



I have an issue with this, because a weakness is anything that can be exploited to beat someone. It is a definately weakness for Cap and Spidey to be stuck in a vaccum or underwater as they can not breath without outside help. It will sure enough kill them if enough time goes by.

Same with Superman. Kryptonite is not an "auto" win, as has been seen many times. He has time to come up with ways get away from it or protect himself from it.

A vaccum (with no air to breath) very comparible to Superman's kryptonite weakness in that it is a limit of their durability. You can't have it both ways.

In an of themselves Cap and Spidey do not have a natural way (besides holding there breath for a handful of minutes) not drowning or sufficating. Same with Superman, he has no natural way of resisting kryptonite (unless you want to say absorb a TON of yellow sun light which seems to help protecting him but which he never does).
