Can Cap's Shield harm the Man of Steel?

#2 Posted by Veshark (9058 posts) - - Show Bio

Can it take a blow from Supes? Sure.

Can Cap's strength and the shield's durability harm Supes? I doubt it.

If someone like Shazam or Hulk threw it, than I'd assume it would hurt a bit.

If Mjloner cant dent it, it must be strong so I think it can

If someone strong enough threw it, I'm sure it would hurt.

So a thought just ran through my mind. Cap's shield is supposed to absorb kinetic energy, making it easy for Steve to endure pretty powerful attacks. What if Superman was flying from orbit at maximum acceleration, and he struck a fully prepared Captain America? I'm pretty sure the shield will endure, but what will happen to its wielder? Would the entire force from the punch be absorbed by the shield? Would we see a similar effect like in the Avengers movie when Thor struck the shield with his hammer? I kind of want to see this happen now...

When Cap misses with the shield it barely makes dents in walls.

Clark wouldn't even feel it.

Not unless someone close to Superman in strength hit him with it.

Would it hurt if it hit supes in the nuts?

I think so.

Depending on speed almost anything can be deadly.

man of "steel" would be possibly sliced into two if the "vibranium" shield is thrown properly by someone powerful

I think it could knock him back quite a ways. Don't know if it would actually hurt him, though.

And as far as this goes....

THeoretically, if something could absorb and disperse any vibration and impact, it could withstand anything. Of course that would make said object too powerful in comics. So they just treat it like it can absorb some of the impact, a lot, but not all, so Cap receives some of the damage and force. For example he sometimes flies away after a powerful blow, which makes little sense if the shield actually absorbed all impact.

So with supes I would think that the blow would be reduced but still, with such a powerful blow, Cap would be seriously banged up.

I do not think it would hurt Cap....if you review cap books he has taken many massive hits behind the shield, will he be moved....yes.

Yeah, even this month in the new Cap America comic book "living legend", he takes a shell from a WW II tank and gets straight up and destroys the tank with the shield. He's battered Wolverine unconscious with it, despite Wolvie's adamantium laced skull, so sure, Superman would feel a direct hit from it..

Hmm I don't think it could harm Superman in any serious way really, but I think Cap's shield could still pack a punch. It would definitely "smart".

But yeah obviously Cap stands no chance or really injuring Supes, much as I don't give a hoot about Superman he's so superpowerful so it is what it is. Cap could block a couple blows though I bet.

Agreed!

supes would probably be soup.
