From "Smallville: Kandor (#9.7)"
] Defend yourself!
I have no powers. I used the blue Kryptonite to take them away, the same way I corrupted the Orb so none of you could rule this planet as gods.
But you did have it. You came with us in the orb, yet you harnessed the powers of the yellow sun for yourself. How?
I shall never tell you.
