After being exposed to a dangerous quantity of kryptonite, Batman suggests to Superman that he use a lead suit to protect himself from the effects of kryptonite radiation. Wearing the suit, Superman along with Batman scours the globe to collect all samples of kryptonite, which the Man of Steel then throws into the sun.
Though styled in the tradition of his regular costume, the K-Suit is made of lead-lined titanium that protects Superman from the effects of kryptonite radiation. It also can withstand much physical damage and harsh environments.
- Life Support: The suit has internal reserves and a filtration/recycling oxygen system. If the armor is breached, it releases anti-radiation foam to protect the user.
- Regeneration:The armor has regenerative capabilities as demonstrated when Aquaman tore off a piece of it with his hand. A new metal plate immediately sealed the damage.
- Helmet:The helmet possesses a retractable one-way visor. This not only protects Superman, but also allows him to release and focus his heat vision.
- This armor specifically appeared in part of the story arc "K" in Superman/Batman set in the New Earth continuity.
