Ok I found this page for Matter-Eater Lad and it says..."Matter-Eater Lad has the ability to bite through and consume all forms of matter; including things that which is supposedly indestructible" So dose this mean he can eat anything or dose it have to be sold stuff ? Ok like can he eat stuff like... Kryptonite, Toxic Waste, Dark Matter Basiclly anything hazardass or radioactive... Stuff like that ?

I found some new info...

Bismollian Physiology: Matter-Eater Lad can eat any substance in any amount at super-speed. He can consume an unlimited amount of matter in any form - solid, liquid or gas. He once hollowed out a large meteor in a matter of minutes....

Digestive Enzymes: Their power to eat hard objects, like steel, without having super-strength or invulnerability, stems from the Bismollian ability to produce a variety of digestive enzyme that act on specific substances, making them easier to chew and digest. Once, when Computo had robbed him of his matter-eating ability, he could still produce enzymes, but biting into a piece of steel hurt his teeth...

Content Analysis: Bismollian super-taste buds can instantly analyze the compositions of various foodstuffs and even detect substances which are poisonous to non-Bismollians. As well he can determine the nature of various chemicals in substances...

Metabolism Induced Super-Speed: Bismollians can metabolize food almost instantaneously, and if needed, they can consume tons of food in minutes. Bismollians don't normally possess super-speed but as soon as the digestion process begins, the matter consumed is immediately transformed into food energy by the Bismollian "stomach". That energy fuels the person to move at a faster and faster rate of speed, as long as the energy supply keeps coming. When the person stops eating, the excess energy is collected and stored, in concentrated form, in cells very similar to human fat cells. Over the course of a couple of days, this stored energy is micro-diffused out of the body through pores in the skin...

Matter Eater Lad is like a black hole that can consume anything so he is a sort of super Cookie Monster or Taz.

Cool so He can eat Mjolnir, the Destroyer Armor, The Infinity Gems ? Ok if cyclops were to shoot a blast at M-E lad he can open his mouth and suck in the blast and eat it ? What i'm trying to say is... Is there anything Mater-Eater Lad can't Eat ?
