See if King Thor or whatever can only dent it I don't know how Supes can break it without it taking a while.

I really dont see why, Superman wouldnt be able to break adamantium. It is a mineral native to Earth.

i find it retarded that supes, captian marvel,hulk or thor being semi god like characters cant bend a earthly metal from our planet.


its all in how they write the characters=)

one week supes pushes a planet, the next he's holding a mini black hole in his hand the next week he cant break adamantium doh.


adamantium comes from fictional earth. I think any of the above characters should have no problem breaking it.

Yes, Superman could easily crush, crumble, bend, break Adamantium.

He has limitless strength.

It's not like adamantium is pulled up out of the ground. It has to be carefully created to get the finest grade of stupidly durable metal or you end up with crappy results that get dented and bent by angry gods and monsters with infinite strength.

I think the greatest defeat of adamantium was to Magneto, who didn't actually bend it or break it, but destabilized it molecularly.

yeah, he destabilized the shiit out of it laughing out loud


Unless the adamantium is outfitted with super, self-restoring nanobites, there is not a chance that adamantium can endure Supermans strength.

The Steel is from Earth, Earth Physics have little to no bearing on Superman. If they did, he would not be able to fly or shoot lasers from his eyes. 100,000 tons to us, is 100 pounds to superman.

Are you for real? Planets don't have their own physics. Superman doesn't have powers because he has "Kryptonian physics."

To bring this back up, sorry, as someone who reads both DC AND Marvel extensively, I'll give my two cents.

Pre-crisis Superman could do anything, therefore, he probably had a super-admantium breaking power somewhere.

Post-Crisis? He could dent it, DEFINATELY not tear it if it was an adequate amount.

For those of you that say Superman is stronger then Thor, that's not true. Like someone else stated, they both have the same base strength. Thor has the ability of his power belt, as well as drawing from the odin force.

Also, recently in the comics, it was shown that Thor has NEVER used his full strength in fear of killing someone that he didn't mean to. He ALWAYS held back, much like Supes. So it's very practical that they have the same strength PHYSICALLY.

However, like I said, he can draw upon the OdinForce. This allows him almost an unlimited strength gain potential, comparable to Super-Man Prime.

So just because Thor can do something, doesn't mean Superman can. Likewise as well. Just because Super-man has been god powered at some points, doesn't mean Thor can perform all his feats.

So to wrap up: Yes, Post-Crisis Superman could DENT probably a thin amount of Admantium, but not break it. However, assuming he had access to unlimited tech, he could essentially just get Vibranium, and Vibranium is the strongest metal, and it disrupts other metal.

not in real life, but we are talking about comic books here dude. There is virtually no physics in comic books and when there is, they are always conflicting.

When i said Earth physics, however, i was being silly. What goes up does not have to come down when superman is involved. Supermans muscle mass should not be able to break Steel, but with superman, it is not muscle that gives him his strength.

I agreed with everything 'til I read this.

Superman Prime is physically not only Thor's superior, but Odin's as well.

I think Superman could break an Adamantium needle, but not much more.

Every instance of Adamantium being broken in 616 continuity has been retcon'd to Secondary Adamantium. Adamantium remains on broken in 616 Marvel, people stronger the Superman have failed to break or damange it and Superman will fail also. 'Nuff Said.

That was an alternate universe, and that Wolverine didn't have Adamantium on the joints.

wow, that sounds like the same kind of bullshit that turned me off of mainstream comics.
"Yeah, that happened, but it doesn't count because it was in a different timeline or universe that we just made up" so, why the fuk did i just read it?

If Superman can move a planet, you can not honestly believe that he cannot break adamantium. Although, that feat may be ridiculous and he had help, he still did it.

Superman can probably at the very least bend adamantium, which means either way Wolverine would be screwed.
