* Averted ComicBook/PostCrisis in ''Comicbook/{{Superman}}'' (albeit played straight elsewhere in Franchise/TheDCU.) The chronic health problems that plague SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor in both his comic book and cartoon series appearances are a result of exposure to the KryptoniteRing he wore for quite some time. While it certainly hurts Comicbook/{{Superman}} very quickly, having it around you for ''years'' will have the same effect any kind of radiation will.

* The [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] [[ComicBook/TheAtom Atom]] from the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica was originally just a short guy who worked out a lot, but when he came out of retirement in TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks he had super-strength because the writer who brought him back didn't read the history. It was later {{Retcon}}ned that he absorbed energy from a nuclear-powered supervillain, which somehow allowed him to survive an atomic bomb blast, after which he gained his powers.

* In the late 50s and early 60s, there was a belief among certain scientists that the sudden appearance of a number of children of high intelligence was caused by the recent appearance of Strontium-90 from nuclear testing, which led to a fringe belief that humanity was undergoing an evolutionary leap. This may well have been the inspiration for the XMen.
