"You're like rich-dude Kryptonite, Veronica."

Kal-El, last son of Krypton, better known as Superman, is invulnerable but for one major weakness: Kryptonite. That's right, rocks from his home planet make him weak. Home totally is not where the heart is, huh? Dick's metaphor here isn't entirely appropriate, as Veronica doesn't make the rich dudes she associates with weak, per se; she just gets them into loads of trouble. She's more like a rich-dude black cat. But not rich-dude Black Cat. Though that would make her that much hotter. Mrow.

"Well, we should hang out. Even Superman would leave his Fortress of Solitude from time to time."

The ultimate superhero had the ultimate pad — a private stronghold, originally hidden somewhere in the icy wastelands of the vastness of the Arctic and latterly at the center of the sun. Thus Wallace seeks out the company of the lovely Jackie, living in self-imposed exile due to her father's alleged heinous crimes. Does Wallace know that at one point, Superman didn't come out of his fortress for 15,000 years? For the fans who object to her very existence, even this may not be a long enough exile for Jackie.
