So...does anyone see anything wrong with that? A man made metal, can survive strikes from weapons/powers that are above mortals....now I can understand it would be able to survive brute force and normal weapons that I am ok with. But surviving against things that are far beyond and as powerful as they are just doesn't seem right at all..
Adamantium can't be destroyed by god/magic/divine powers/wep?....
Nah its cool. Besides Thor and Hulk could probably dent it pretty well if they went all out. Magic users could probably effect it quite easily. Imagine Wolverine with a dented skull. No healing factor in the world would save him from being mentally handicapped until it was fixed.
Adamantium is a trump in the writers' hand. along the years its capabilities, resistance to heat, resistance to shock have changed so much it's ridiculous. It belongs to the comics' logic where the only important thing is: will it serve the story. Nothing more I can think about that.
Gladiator pulled the claw out whole he didn't break it. And S'ym broke it in limbo where real world physique likely don't apply.
@Wolfrazer: This is probably the scan you are thinking of. Thor says he scarcely dented it. But looking closely this doesn't seem anywhere near a blow of all his might. If he was really going at it without the OF then I could see him making a dent.
That's secondary Adamantium and not true Adamantium. Thor himself states in the scan that he struck the cylinder with all is might.
On topic: I like the fact that Adamantium is virtually indestructible.
Anything can be destroyed. This is fiction, sometimes like in real life, things aren't meant to be absolutely literal. Sometimes writing or phrasing is more about effect. Like me? I will use all my strength to throw this pen against that wall. **literally only uses half my strength to throw pen** but since I said all my strength, it must mean I used all of it. Somehow. Adamantium is basically a handy device in comics to aid plots. Editors/writers will per their discretion try and avoid it losing its luster because once it does it (can) loses (lose) its power to aid stories. Of course if editors don't really care for such things (think of characters like Rhino and Abomination who start off impressive but then go on to job) or Marvel needs to quickly establish a new powerful threat (think Serpent in Fear Itself breaking Cap's shield)
@TheSwordsman: I understand what it says but I have 95% of Thor comics and that didn't look like all his might. As for secondary Adamantium he and Hulk could shatter it easily.
It doesn't matter how the artist portrayed the blows look, what matters is that he stated that it was all of his might. In some books Hulk and Thor crumple secondary Adamantium and in some they only dent it like when Hulk dented Ultron.
