So we know that CA’s shield is made from a Wakandan Vibranium-steel alloy that can only be destroyed by the strongest of forces (Doctor Doom used the power of the Beyonder to fire a Beam From Out of the Blue that killed many characters but only broke a piece off of the shield) but could Antarctic Vibranium (also known as anti-metal) dissolve the shield?

  • the Antarctic-Vibranium produces vibrations that completely weaken a metal at a molecular level. So considering a shield made of vibranium-steel alloy (and not pure vibranium), it would definitely be damaged. However the pure vibranium shield would be strong enough to absorb the vibrations and stay put. – Shreedhar Mar 23 '18 at 12:58
  • I thought it was proto-adamantium, not vibranium-steel... – OrangeDog Mar 23 '18 at 13:10

  • @Edlothiad I was thinking the same thing – Kevin Fischer Mar 23 '18 at 14:23

Well if Antarctic Vibranium can't affect its Wakandan cousin, then it probably won't affect an alloy of Wakandan Vibranium. Therefore it would not destroy Captain America's shield.
