How strong is the shield?

Forgive me, I haven't read anything since Fear Itself, but:

How strong is the shield right now? I know before, with the vibranium-steel alloy, it was already virtually indestructible, but now it's got some Uru in it too.. Also, was it ever enchanted?

I don't believe it received an enchantment. I honestly have not heard of its strength increasing or decreasing as of late.

It's been sturdy enough in his books though.

The only reference is when Stark says that with the Uru it should be even stronger, but I agree besides that statement it's been completely ignored so I would say it is stronger, but it's still kind of hard to say how much stronger as there is no feats or any other statements. Hell even the scar seems to be gone or retconned, I haven't seen or heard mention of it since as well.

I won't speak about fear then! But Caps shield has been damaged by Thors Hammer and crushed by the Hulk but, it has been improved and that is as much as I'm gonna say!

When has Hulk destroyed the shield?

@evilvegeta74: It's cool, that happens sometimes, The Thor one was when he had the Odin Force making him a cosmic entity like Odin.

In short only cosmic powered people have been able to damage the shield, Molecule Man use his control over matter to destroy it, Thanos used the infinity gauntlet, Thor had the OF, Doom had the Beyonder's power, and most recently The Serpent who's power grows with fear in the fear itself storyline, now it has also been infused with Uru on top of the Vibranium and unknown Steel alloy making it even stronger but how much stronger hasn't been explored yet.

It will get retconned .. Everytime Stark has added something to the shield Cap has hated it and turned it down because it throws off the weight and his ability to throw it. The URU would have to be enchanted because isn't it much much heavier than Earth metal? Stark wanted to put magnetic bracelets on cap that would make it so the shield would always return much like Thor's hammer so maybe now they will use the URu foe that.
