How Did Mettle Die ?

#1 Posted by Kid_Omega_Prime (1241 posts) - - Show Bio

Ok I was wondering how Mettle died ? It said that "Ken Possesses a body of living Iridium, he is virtually indestructible shown to be able to withstand the intense heat of a flame thrower." It also says... "Along with Hazmat, X-23, Reptil, Juston Seyfert, and a eleven other teenage heroes, Mettle is kidnapped by Arcade and told only one will be allowed to leave Murderworld alive. When Arcade demands for the weakest link to come forward and be killed, Mettle willingly goes forward in order to save Hazmat, at the cost of his own life." But It dose not say how he died ? Plus I never got a answer to my other question... Is Mettle a Human or a Mutant ?

@Kid_Omega_Prime:

If you're looking for the specifics of his death, like how Arcade made him explode, I can't give you those. He just waved his hand and it happened. There really wasn't anything else explained about it. As for him being a mutant, I don't think it was ever said he was or wasn't, but it would appear that he is--at least to me.

Here's the scan, if that's what you're looking for:

As for how he does it: We probably won't know the specifics until how he got them all there to begin with is revealed. Judging from this, looks like he made him go boom from the inside out. Then again, he says he's God there, so for all we know, he screwed around with the gravity around and within Mettle, resulting in him being torn apart. And unless I'm very much mistaken, he's a mutant.

The way in which he died makes me think this is all some sort of simulation. Arcade is not molecule man, nor should he be.

Ok thats just messed up. If he is a Mutant then why is he listed as Radiation ? Shoulded he be listed as Mutant or Mutant/Radiation ?

My statement was based on unfounded guessing. My only experience with Mettle is from Avengers Arena 1. I can't even state with solid confidence what TEAM he's on, let alone his origin. I stated he's a mutant because when I think of teenage superheroes with weird powers and appearances, I think X-Men. It's entirely possible, if not even more likely, that he's merely a radiation accident. I would suggest looking it up via Google, or contacting someone on the Vine whose an expert in his team. More likely than not, they'd know.

Sense when did Arcade get the powers of Dr. Manhattan ? Ok now far a different question. Do you think Marvel will bring Mettle back ?

@Kid_Omega_Prime: Let's just say you're scratching the tip of a mighty big iceberg asking questions like this one.

He was killed instantaneously by a villain who has, up until that moment, always been a powerless joke. His completely metal body splattered blood all over the place when dispatched by said villain (despite the fact that, you know, he doesn't have blood). These are reasons why he shouldn't actually be dead. However he very well may be dead anyway, and if Marvel was willing to have him die this way, I doubt they care enough to resurrect him anytime soon.

Join the Avengers Arena hate and/or serious misgivings train, my friend. Destination: unknown.

So... anyone else keeping up with this series? Cause I'm beginning to think that may have not been Mettle.

@dh69: That sounds like it could be a possibility.
