Yep, definitely talking about Grendel's fork. In a few internet sources, it's even referred to as the Grendel Fork...

In any case, it's pretty obvious that this isn't a character, unless it's sentient (I don't know...), so it can be safely deleted.

"In addition, the majority of the Grendels to date have used a

weapon refereed to as a 'Fork.' The weapon appears as a staff,

with twin parallel blades perched upon one end. Many variations of

the weapon have appeared in the title."

If it were alive or sentient or had an attitude in any way, shape, or form, I think they would have mentioned that. Just a thought.

Changed to object?

Oh. Yeah. Better idea. ;D

Why not, as it's been wielded by more than one person, I think...

And if you happen to come back to this topic, there's the ongoing issue that Omnium, Adamantium, and Vibranium are all Objects while Carbonadium is a Concept.

I'm not going to say which one is more valid, but I think all four metals should be the same type.

why would it be a concept?

Darkchild says:why would it be a concept?"

The argument for it being a concept is that it's something out of which other objects can be made. I mean, as a comic book concept, adamantium is the metal from which Wolverine's skeleton is made. As a comic book concept, it has certain properties such as being the strongest metal known to Man. In real life, it's actually more brittle... (I had a friend who worked with metals for some reason, I forget which, but he made a point of saying adamantium really isn't "all that" IRL, lol).

But yeah, it's also a physical object, if found in its raw form.
