The Promethium wiki last edited by TheRavageBeast on 02/22/15 08:17PM View full history


Promethium can always be found where the Soulsword is, as a heavy coat of armor can be summoned when a person swings the Soulsword around. However more skilled users, such as Dr. Doom, were able to instantly cover themselves in the powerful metal. Due to it's magical origins it does not rust, melt and its quite tangible. It also contained a power of it's own that was once sought out by Dr. Doom, as an inexhaustible energy source for Latveria. When Darkoth was killed and then resurrected his entire body was composed of promethium, making him a fountain of magical energy. A person wearing this armor is also immune to the transmode virus.

While promethium can be found as wild ore, its only within Limbo, in a hidden cavern in the form of an animal heart. If removed from the Limbo it causes the entire dimension to vanish.

Charnel was able to replicate the promethium by fusing nuclear reactors with raw magic, seeing as Death Metal was invincible, it assumed this promethium combination went well.


In the DC universe, Promethium was first developed by Dayton Labs, a company owned by Steve Dayton. It was a metal named after the Titan Prometheus. He was being punished by Zeus for giving mankind fire and had his liver eaten on a daily basis, but since he was a Titan, he grew another by the next day. The metal had regenerative properties which could be used in metallic creations that could mend themselves, or be used to make highly destructive weapons.
