    Default Secondary Adamantium vs Vibranium vs Nth metal

    I'm assuming the good stuff, like what Wolverines skeleton is laced with, is far more durable than any of the metal mentioned in the topic title. As such, this is secondary Adamantium, or Adamantium steel, which is the type of Adamantium that even Thor can break.

    How do these 3 fictional pieces of metal compare wwith one another? Which one is the most durable?

    Well... Adamantium is hard as shit, even secondary Adamantium was like "Thor hits it and claims he did damage but it's otherwise apparently fine,"

    Vibranium absorbs impact so it's harder to actually break but... as I recall, it has limits of energy absorption.

    Nth Metal... that's like... magic shit, right?

    Well, if it's Wakandan vibranium, I would guess that comes in third, though it's going to be hard to damage it because it absorbs kinetic energy.

    If it's Antarctic vibranium, it ALSO comes in third, but it wins any time someone tries a test where you hit one of these metals with another one and see which one gets damaged, because Nth Metal and Secondary Adamantium just go to goo when they get near it. ^_^

    Basically, vibranium isn't nearly as strong as Nth Metal or Secondary Adamantium, (at least as I understand things), but it cheats.

    Wasn't that True/Beta/proto Adamantium(the good stuffs) that Thor hit?

    I have no idea; I only know that Thor lied his ass off when he said he dented it.

    I'm pretty sure it was. And him going "your mortal eyes can't see the scratch, but it's there." Pretty funny stuff.

    Yeah, Nth Metal is more known for its esoteric properties over mere durability. DC's equivalent to adamantium has always been Inertron.

    Is it as durable as True/Beta/Proto Adamantium?

    I dunno, depends on the continuity. IIRC Precrisis, kryptonians couldn't break it, or at least had to work very hard to, but Karate Kid did. In 2016, Half Jordan cut through two inches of Inertron and it nearly killed him, and then White Lantern Kyle Rayner cut through a vault two feet thick and it nearly killed him.

    I'm also not sure what the upper floor of adamantium actually is. I know of the famous Thor example, but I have heard Gladiator broke it once?

    To be fair, I think that the Ye Olde English phrase he used could mean either "It's barely dented" or "It's not dented at all."

    Thor every time he's reminded of this:

    Yeah, but if you... man, we're getting into weird analogy territory, like if you disintegrated Superman's arms he wouldn't be able to go "fool! Little did you know that my arms and I are one and can be remade from me!" and will his arms back into being from pure nothingness. - Pendaran

    In the 90's GOTG, Gladiator broke one of Wolverine's claws. That's an alternate future...is it canon?

    If these metals are unbreakable, how do you forge them? How do you shape them, pass bolts through them, weld them, turn them into something useful?

    I know, comic book logic. Still, has that ever been addressed?

    They are unbreakable to physical force but they can still be melted into liquid form and given shape before it hardens.

    IIRC, Adamantium is an alloy and doesn't become nigh-unbreakable until after you mix it together. Also, 616 Earth has molecular manipulation technology that lets one alter adamantium after it's already set, which is how Ultron can even move in its fully adamantium biggie, IIRC.

    That said, I have no idea how blind sculptress Alicia Masters managed to make a statue of the Hulk out of adamantium. Maybe she just made a mold and someone filed it with adamantium?
