The unknown iron-Vibranium alloy of which the shield is composed resembles True Adamantium, although Adamantium itself contains no Vibranium,

Thank you, Hookerville, I couldn't have said it better myself. I hope that puts to rest this debate. Now on to more pressing matters.

Who here's read the story where the Green Goblin nails Spidey's girlfriend, knocks her up, and then kills her because she won't let him see his kids?

You couldn't be more correct. The side fights were far more entertaining. I'm a far greater fan of Marvel, (Batman is the only DC character I'm fond of), but frankly the DC universe should squash Marvel's.

some of you know far too much about fictional technologies.

Dude, I pull fictional technologies out of my ass as a hobby, like demon-killing HERF guns.

Did you read Avengers/JLA? Because that's exactly what happened. Wonder Woman took out half of the Avengers by herself, and Thor had his ass handed to him by Superman.

Saint of Killers, if I didn't like JMS' other books so much I would have dropped them completely when he screwed with Gwen Stacy. I just can't fathom that Marvel let him do that.

Programmer Cat so when you pull out the fiction technologies does it hurt? or is the pain only fictional?

TinyPrancer dude calm the fark down before I take your pocket protector away. I wasn't taking a shot at you I was mearly stating a fact.

I hate threads like these. I always come in too late. Like the Superman vs Thor thread. Anyone with half a brain knows Superman would take him, but yet in the Fark comments, it was said to be contrary. In fact, someone used a page from the comic where Superman *beat* Thor to argue otherwise. Curse my tardiness.

On closer inspection, the magnaguard's droids staffs are not made of any hard material, but are themselves like an energy weapon.

"As see in the Star Wars databank under General Grievous.
The tall MagnaGuard droids wield a special electrostaff pole coursing with energy, allowing them to parry lightsaber attacks."

That was the OG guy with the Lantern that Alan got, right? The one powered by the Malthusian Starheart, if I'm not mistaken. If so, his story always made me feel that Alan's weakness to wood wasn't so bad.

And, oh yes, Guillotines do fly -- fly to kill the one-armed boxer!

Then again, cortosis is an EU (expanded universe, meaning not in the actual films) and therefore doesn't really exist. Everything in the films does. Or did. Thank you.

Preach on! The Expanded Universe is nothing short of heresy.

Well, the demon-killing HERF gun hurt a bit, and the human-emulating AI built from nanomechs stretched me out for a few days.

Ummm if lightsabres are so powerful how come the rails on the cloud city of bespin were able to deflect them (Vader Luke fight ESB)?

How come the sabre 'bounced off' the railing on the DS in ROTJ?

Sabres arent nearly as powerful as everyone thinks, it's just that metals in the SWU are basically as tough as silly putty. Blasters prove this again and again.

Adamantium doesn't need to be indestructible to fend off a lightsabre.

Result: Dead Jedi or Sith.

Case closed thank you for playing.

The Saint of Killers:

Non-Canon. The shield predates the discovery of adamantium by decades. The confusion is understandable, a lot of people get their marvel trivia from cards and handbooks instead of going to the source.


Yeah, the offical handbook of the marvel universe wouldn't be a good source for offical handbook material.

Can't you just admit that the farking shield has andamantium in it?

I think I have learned to appreciate these posts (like the blackhole one yesterday).

The consequence of these 'nerd-magnet' posts is that all the really funny links and the good boobies links don't get farked, and I can enjoy them while all the nerds are fapping to girls posting shiate about light sabers.

Jesus, do you even read comics?
 
2005-03-18 11:09:54 AM  
I just wanted to add to the above comments that adamantium, as hard as it is, cannot "destroy" partials. Matter cannot be created of destroyed. It can change shape and form. If you fired a bullet at superman and he did deflect it the probability is that the energy from the moving bullet would knock them both down/away from each other. Newton's Third law "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." They would just transfer the kinetic energy from one to the other.

As far as the adamantium vs. lightsaber goes....if adamantium is indestructible the moment it hardens then even a lightsaber couldn't melt it again. It would however probably get really really hot and thus the bearer of the lightsaber would probably when the battle against adamantium claws.

kasarul: Wolverine can't touch a Jedi thanks to force powers. If it was a normal person with a lightsaber, sure. But with force powers, the Jedi can backflip and lightning the living hell out of Wolverine before even gets close.

I didn't know that, but I'm glad to hear it. JLA is simply the most powerful group of super heroes ever assembled.

If I were to get back into reading comics (I stopped in the last 90's but still follow things in Wizard, for all its faults), JLA would be tops on my list.

Also, Marvel needs to bring back the Deadpool title. That was the only comic that ever made me laugh out loud.

1) You're assuming that Wolverine wouldn't try to bushwhack the Jedi.

2) Wolverine, based on the movies and the few comics I read as a kid, is one stubborn motherfrkker. The Schwartz might not be enough.

Sure they would, just like they're letting Bendis screw with the Avengers right now. Don't worry though. In a couple of years they'll get Geoff Johns or Kurt Busiek or James Robinson to change everything back to the way it should have been all along.

"kasarul: Wolverine can't touch a Jedi thanks to force powers. If it was a normal person with a lightsaber, sure. But with force powers, the Jedi can backflip and lightning the living hell out of Wolverine before even gets close."

You mean like Obi-Wan did against Jango Fett? I missed the backflip part as all I saw was Obi-Wan getting his hands tied, being knocked around by ill-aimed rockets and blaster fire and losing in fist fight.
Oh wait you mean like how that Jedi was gunned down by Jango Fett when he landed on the balcony... Oh wait.
No, you mean how Mace Windu backflipped against that charging rhino monster and didn't end up losing his sabre nor did he end up knocked to the ground...

Oh wait.

I can provide proof all day long about how badly Jedis and Sith suck. Please either provide canonical proof to support your position or capitulate.

Im assuming that adamantium can conduct heat. I could be wrong on that.

I must say it is sad how much some of these people calling themselves nerds know about fictional science without any apparent understanding of actual physics or chemistry. I'm basing this mainly from reading some of the early posts, I got bored and skipped to the end. True nerds know real science - which helps us make real money in the real world.
 
2005-03-18 11:16:53 AM  
Didn't read the entire thread, but a few things.

Adamantium is made through a chemical reaction. Once hardened it's impossible to bend, cut, etc.

Super-man's bullet proofedness comes from his tactile telekinesis. Not common knowledge.

Captain America's shield is a vibranium/adamantium alloy.

NineInchNader: Wolverine should have never beaten Lobo. That was a travesty.

Didn't they have to write it that way because the outcome was based on votes? My favorite was the Aquaman vs. Namor fight, even though Namor should have won. You just can't beat seeing a big orca come flying out of the water and landing on Namor to smoosh him.

There was also a What if... where Wolverine went to an alternate universe and killed Conan. I think he lost a hand, though, perhaps by magic?

Programmer Cat:

1) You're assuming that Wolverine wouldn't try to bushwhack the Jedi.

This is very true. I think a Sith Lord wouldn't worry, because he would probably sense how farking crazy Wolvie would be, and just toast his arse extra crispy.

However a Jedi would probably be skewered post haste. Judging by how on the ball they are in the prequel trilogy, they wouldn't realize Wolvie is a threat until they've lost a few limbs and a pint of blood.

2) Wolverine, based on the movies and the few comics I read as a kid, is one stubborn motherfrkker. The Schwartz might not be enough.

Keeping him down would be tough, but the nature of their power should allow them to turtle long enough to wear him down.

Now if it was the Schwartz Wolvie was up against, then Yogurt would probably convince him to license himself up (much like real life) for Wolverine: The T-Shirt, Wolverine: The Lunchbox, Wolverine: The Breakfast Cereal, Wolverine: The Coloring Book, Wolverine: The FLAMETHROWER (The kids love this one), and lastly, Wolverine: The Doll (May da sknit be wit you).

Adorable.

They fought him and got WTFPWNED.
Although it was a rather weak version of the JLA at the time.
