Adamantium can't be destroyed by god/magic/divine powers/wep?....

#1 Edited by Wolfrazer (6374 posts) - - Show Bio

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..

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.

@gravitypress:  Well was under the impression, Thor hit some with his hammer and it hardly did a thing.

@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.

@Wolfrazer: its not man made. it can be found naturally too. its refined by man so it can be used.

@gravitypress:  I suppose. 
 
@JohnnyWalker:  Ya I know, when I said man made was speaking of the refined.

I heard somewhere that people (e.g. Molecule Man) who had the ability to manipulate particles at a sub atomic level could destroy adamantium....I would be very suprised if this wasn't true.

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.

It's just another one of those little things about the Marvel universe that are retarded. Just ignore it to avoid rage and tears

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.

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.

Magneto was somehow able to liquify it when he pulled it out of Wolverine. It's damaged , just not very often.

@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.

Lol cannon goes by what is written not by what the picture looks like.

Adamantium like all things have electrons. That's why Magneto was able to do what he pleases with it.

Yeah I know about electrons . Anyway if Magneto can do it then so can the Gods and random over powered characters that marvel likes to have.

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)

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.

@TheSwordsman:

What was the claw attached to?

#20 Edited by JoeEddie (483 posts) - - Show Bio

Also, didn't Cyclops destroy Weapon X hand during Age of Apocalypse?

Tendons/muscles used to extend and retract them.

Different universe/non-canon.

@TheSwordsman:

I think the feat is cannon. If I remember correctly, AoA is just a branch off of the 616 continuity

Nah. It was retconned as an alternate universe. Non-canon for sure.

He blew off the skin and muscle not the claw

Okay

If it can be made malleable enough to smelt, to form into shapes, to use in an alloy, then objects made of adamantium can be destroyed. You don't need examples from comics to come to that conclusion; that's simple logic.

What's secondary adamantium?

@shackle: Adamantium is an alloy. You melt the component metals, mix them, pour them in the mold, let it cool, then it's indestructible.
