Kryptonite-Plus.

Action #350 tells the tale of The Heroes, a musical group that plays dressed as Green Arrow, Green  Lantern, Batman, and Supergirl.  But they do more than sing:  During breaks at their gigs, they steal from their hosts, nabbing such things as "Carter Hagen's valuable mineral collection."  When Supergirl tumbles to their racket and busts in, the fake Green Arrow pulls out some "Kryptonite-Plus from the mineral collection we stole.  It's a super-powerful isotope of Kryptonite that will finish her off in minutes!"  Need I explain that the Maid of Steel escapes?

Jimmy Olsen #126's cover story featured "The Riddle of Kryptonite Plus," not hyphenated.  However, there really ain't no such animal.  Jimmy, on the moon with another astronaut, comes across Superman's body sprawled on a pile of multi-colored rocks which Jimmy assumes are "some sort of ultra-Kryptonite."  But it's all a scam, part of an elaborate, though doomed, deception by a group of super-powered aliens trying to invade Earth.  And that's the last we hear of Kryptonite Plus, with or without a hyphen.
