In-universe, if someone is willing to make a sword out of Adamantium (for example to fight Wolverine), are there places where they could find it?

Is this a metal that one can mine or purchase? And if yes, where would one find these deposits?

  • Are you asking if Adamantium deposits exist and where you'd find those deposits?

  • Unfortunately, even if you can find some adamantium, you will not be able to fight Wolverine. He's too fast and strong, and he heals much faster than you. Sorry about that. I'd suggest you aim for easier opponents, like Ronda Rousey and Chris Kyle. ;)

According to the Marvel website entry Adamantium does not occur naturally, but is instead produced by combining chemical resins. The details of the procedure are a closely guarded secret, although there is canonical precedent for leaks.

So, no on there being deposits and only very rarely, expensively & illegally on it being for sale anywhere, much in the same way you can't buy a nuclear warhead easily.

  • Also, assuming a Wolverine with his full set of regenerative properties, what good is a sword going to do?

  • A sword did a decent amount in the movie "the wolverine" - but who takes those seriously?
