Since neither exists, and to cut something is to change it, then the lightsaber can't as the adamantium remains unchanged, even if only a figment of someone's imagination, so no.

But then the Dark Side is overall stronger. Sure Yoda will tell you different but who is ruling the galaxy and who is sitting in a swamp? Oh, he gets to be a ghost when he dies. Ok.

Meoww!!! Say that to his face, would you?

You mean the Kyber crystal?

I'm pretty sure there isn't a lot of light-sabre cutting going on, since in pretty much any duel they just make a big flash of white light when they collide.

Here's several thins about the Superman, lightsaber, adamantium thing.

1. In the old school Superman it was said his body projected a small field of protection around his skin. Which was why in the original comics his costume never got destroyed. (This has since been dropped I believe but I found it interesting enough to add)
2. The current Superboy is only invunerable through a similar field that surrounds his body and he derives most of his super strength and abilities through projecting that field. (Again this is changing with time)

3.Adamantium can be peirced and cut by a certain Material as shown in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy series. In which one of the main characters (Vance Astro AKA Major Victory) originally wore a protective Adamantium suit to protect him from aging. In one issue his suit was breached using a bullet made of a specific material. Hence Adamantium is not indestructable or inpenetrable in the future (When the comic was set). Guardians of the Galaxy #18 was the issue if anyone cares to look up what the bullet was made of.

4. As further proof adamantium can be broken. In another issue of Guardians of the Galaxy a descendent of Wolverine attempts to track down either his body or him. The descendent finds one of Wolvies metal claws that had been broken off. Eventually it turns out the in that future Doom has killed woverine then mounted his own brain in a robot made of Wolvies skeleton. Complete with broken claw.
not sure on the issue number there.

Ok that's it. all I can add.

I think that a lightsaber could do it, because the technology is of a completley different galaxy. Considering that this is a discussion about two pieces of two different universes colliding, I think we need to look at the fact that in the SW universe they can bend light to create a lightsaber. Thats something I dont think that the creators of the adamantium skeleton thought of, since to them it doesnt exist.

/nerd as well.

It's not "end of discussion" just because you say so. The sources that you have cited (cards, handbooks) are non-canon. I got it straight from the horses mouth. Adamantium didn't even exist when Cap's shield was made.

I thought that lightsabers didn't generate any heat, although that would probably not be true otherwise Luke would have bled to death after his dad went a bit too far with the corporal punishment.

The real question should be who wins in a fight between the Wonder Twins and an inanimate carbon rod?

My money's on the rod.

Captain America's shield is an Adamantium/Vibranium alloy. The exact composition is a mystery that died with it's creator, Dr. Myron MacLain. MacLain did not invent Vibranium however. Vibranium came to the earth in meteors.

2005-03-18 10:25:53 AM  
I don't know what is the implication of Mace Winu's purple saber.

The implication is that when Jules Winnfield says he wants a purple lightsaber 'because it looks cool and no one else has one', he gets it.

I think the question is overly vague. There are several kinds of adamantium/adamantine metals in many different areas of geekdom. There is the aforementioned adamantium from the Marvel universe, but there is also adamantium from D&D, as well as adamantium in Morrowind (at least, if you get Tribunal).

So basically, here's my response to the two underdiscussed adamantium possibilities. If it's the D&D adamantium, then the lightsaber could do it, provided that the lightsaber does more damage per second than the adamantium's hardness plus HP per inch. However, the hardness is relatively high, so it's possible that a standardized lightsaber from some d20 incarnation of the SW RPG might list lightsaber damage and fail to bypass adamantine armor or shields.

As to the Morrowind version of adamantium, a lightsaber could cut through it like it wasn't even there. I mean, shiat, if you hit rats enough with an adamantine sword, or if rats bite into your adamantine armor enough, it just breaks. Because everything in Morrowind breaks, if it's a weapon or piece of armor. So, logically, if a rat can break adamantium, then a lightsaber would have no problem.

Ooo, ooo my turn!!! In the comics, Doomsday not only beat the snot out of Superman, but shredded his costume with his exoskeleton... how does this weigh in, or is that considered to "new" of Superman? Discuss.

Mace Windu and Lando Calrissian, the two smoothest ass brothers in the galaxy.

If threatened with a lightsaber or an adamantium weapon, your best defense is the threaten to use the Corbomite Device.

Bullshiat! The Corbomite Device doesn't really exist. Kirk pulled that out of his ass. Twice.

And for everyone biatching about this thread, I'll hang out with someone who wastes work time bullshiatting about this stuff over sports freaks anytime.

God, everytime a good geek discussion comes up someone throws the sex farctor in

who ever you people are that think that sex is anti geek you are wrong - I have wilder and more sex in one saturday then you have in your boring "normal" lifetime.

I am a geek - I like anime, I like comics, I like cartoons, I like expanded universes and most of all I like having sex after delving in some of the aforementioned hobbies.

The perfect saturday - hockey followed by video games followed by some comics or novels followed by karate followed by sex followed by dinner followed by more sex finishing with sex or some video games (depends on who is more tired)

Supposedly from the comics written in the "Aftermath" of his death. Superman's body acts as a huge solar battery. When he was presented with Doomsday for some reason the insuing battles drained his energy reserves faster then normal (I think they said "It was the hardest he'd ever fought" or some schlock)So when Doomsday really started wailing on him he just didn't have the energy left for his body to be invunerable to Doomsday. He was still bullet proof and needle proof etc. But Doomsday hit like comet impact. At least that's what they said. Now that he's back though he's had several changes in his powers. Even becoming energy at one point. I think though the Doomsday thing was the begining of the end for the "Aura" of invunerability
I think now they just say he's a tough bastard. Perhaps with a touch of the aura left. But his cape and shiat still gets shredded all the time.

Actually that whole Mithril thing had me second-thinking.

When Frodo got stuck with the spear by the cave troll, why did the Mithil just not line the outside of the blade and pass through his body?

The Mithril would still be intact, but it's all pliable like and could pass through his fragile skin with enough force.

It is, but not in the way I've intended. DBZ fans can become quite belligerent in discussions due to DBZ's non-existent continuity. Like a Pre-Crisis DC comic (God, I am a geek) DBZ has hundreds of explanations and origins for the characters and their powers and they all contradict each other. Best to stay away from any discussion about DBZ, for that and other obvious reasons.
