Wolverine was shot in the head and he is knocked out, but to me it clearly looks like the bullet is sitting in his head in the video in your question. As his skin heals, the bullet pops out. (Valorum's answer confirms this with a quote from the novelization.) So the bullet does not look like it passed through his Adamantium-bonded skull. And if it had, and ...

Read the first couple paragraphs here. TL;DR: The bullet did not penetrate the adamantium layer, he's just been hit in the skull by a lump of metal traveling at probably something over 1,000 feet per second, which is why he got knocked out which seems the most plausible explanation. The bullet was just embedded in the flesh that's around his skull.

We don't know. Superman has never been shown encountering adamantium. However, in the crossover comic Superman/Fantastic Four: The Infinite Destruction, Superman is able to shrug off a beam that "can cut through adamantium," so my money's on "probably not."

This is a failure of canon and writing regarding the issue of indestructible metals. Marvel has made little effort to describe Adamantium in any given detail and it defies the rules that most metals use regarding taking damage or being destroyed. TLDR Given the premise that the Silver Samurai was supposedly capable of generating a tachyon field (read that ...

In the Comics In the comics, when adamantium strikes adamantium, nothing happens. They look awesome, they make sparks, coolness ensues, other solutions must be found. Captain America's shield and Wolverine's claws have clashed several times historically. They made sparks, nothing more. Most times in the comic medium adamantium is irresistible, for cutting ...

The Silver Samurai's sword was made of adamantium. It had a heating mechanism built in. Super-heated adamantium can cut through adamantium. This was established as canon on the previous Wolverine movie where Deadpool uses heat vision on Wolverine's claws and then Wolverine decapitates Deadpool, whose body was laced with adamantium. This was confirmed by ...

I will admit that this is an interesting question. In the Ultimate Universe, Ultimate Hulk has broken adamantium. I'm not clear if he can in the current canon for the mainstream Marvel Universe. My expectation is that it would NOT stop a Hulk transformation. As Banner's bones grew, they would strain the adamantium. They would be compressed. The spine ...

Adamantium has been destroyed First things first, Adamantium have slightly more complicated histories than just becoming a metal or finding a metal one day. The first "version" of Adamantium was Proto-Adamantium, which was accidentally discovered by Dr. Myron MacLain during the Second World War. It was then recreated in the 60s, but using a ...

Not necessarily, and not all of it. X-Men continuity is tricky. In general, it's hard to reconcile the X-Men Cinematic Universe together no matter which movies you use. Origins: Wolverine contradicts a lot of things, Days of Future Past reboots things, etc. In this case, there were vague and contradictory statements abounding about Logan, some implying that ...

TL;DR: the organometallic compound created by bonding adamantium to bone at the molecular level breaks down cell walls and prevents the body from making blood & plasma. It looks like this question already has a decent answer, but it got me thinking - why IS adamantium so poisonous? The comics point out that Wolverine's healing factor isn't just fighting ...

I don't recall that this has ever been specifically addressed, but I believe that this passage from Wikipedia is the most spot on. The character Wolverine is depicted as his long-time enemy, although conflicting accounts have been given as to the origin of their feud. It is also known that he and Sabretooth were victims of the Cold War supersoldier ...

The film's official novelisation confirms that the bullet, although penetrating the skin and breaking into pieces, didn't (and couldn't) penetrate his impenetrable adamantium skull. He's not dead, merely unconscious. She yelled at him some more, partly to purge her own terror, but most of all to keep attention away from Logan. She knew the adamantium ...

This is basically a "It looks cool in the move so lets do it." thing. Based on everything in the comics, Adamantium once hardened is pretty much indestructible, even by something made of adamantium or similarly invincible metal (Uru (Thor's Hammer), Adamantite (Hercule's Mace)) They did a test in the Avengers where Thor, one of the physically strongest ...

There are two distinct questions here; 1) Can Marvel freely use the term Adamantium to describe Ultron's coverings? - Yes, absolutely they can. Not only has the metal been a part of their existing comic properties but the word itself isn't trademarked. I can use it, you can use it, anyone can use it. 2) Will they describe his coverings as Adamantium? - ...

Wolverine has actually been decapitated before: This specific case was a result of a nuclear bomb that went off in the Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk #5 comic. Depending on the author Wolverine may or may not die after being decapitated. (Despite the image, being decapitated is generally considered his ultimate weakness that does in fact kill him.) But could ...

Captain America's circular shield is composed of an unknown alloy dubbed Proto-Adamantium. Technically, the explanation is the material was being designed to be a super-strong metallic alloy that Vibranium was added to. After the scientist creating it took a nap, he woke to discover his mixture of Vibranium-altered meta-material was somehow viable and he ...

Besides making an interesting thought-experiment, the answer would be: No. There would be no way to make it safe enough for Banner to survive the bonding process. Without regeneration, he would die on the table or revert to the Hulk, stopping the process. Banner could never survive the initial process. The adamantium bonding technology is supposed to be ...

TL;DR. We find out that his skeleton is made from adamantium in The Uncanny X-Men #126 from 1979. Wolverine's first appearance was a single panel cameo at the end of The Incredible Hulk #180. There's no mention of adamantium until the following edition, The Incredible Hulk #181, where we learn that his claws are made from the substance. Interestingly, in ...

Wolverine has fought villains that have Adamantium bonded to various parts of their bodies, for example: Lady Deathstrike, Donald Pierce, Sabre tooth, and most notably in this area of discussion, Cyber. Cyber's body was coated in Adamantium and Logan could not hurt him at all with his Adamantium claws. He had to find another way to take him out. His ...

Most likely his bones would be replaced with Adamantium similar to Wolverine. If Deadpool had this operation done he would not however have claws like Wolverine as Wolverine's mutation included the claws in addition to his healing factor.

Adamantium was said that once it was set it could not be re melted so if the sword is red hot then it will not be softened resulting in heated adamantium striking cool adamantium, if this is true then the heated adamantium would crack the cooled adamantium much like a glass cup warm from the dishwasher and pouring cold water in, it would shatter, only in ...

It's unlikely. From the comics, we know that the Iron Fist's punch has it's limits. Specifically, it's not strong enough to break Captain America's shield: There's a nice "healthy" debate going over which is stronger: vibranium or adamantium, so it's not entirely clear if the Fist would have the same luck against Wolverine as Captain America. But both ...

I read somewhere that the Silver Samurai could not cut through Wolverine's claws... His(Silver Samurai) mutant ability allows him to generate a field of tachyonic energy around his katana that allows it to cut through almost any material on earth except for adamantium. http://www.comicvine.com/silver-samurai/4005-3174/ (Powers and Abilities section

If this is solely for movie cannon, the only way to know is to wait till the next movie and see what script writers have wolvie snikt-ing. If comic cannon, there are conflicting opinions "officially" it would heal back just as his bones as it is Adamantium Beta (though I would have thought at a slower rate as it is known to retard his healing factor a bit), ...

According to the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, vibranium melts at 5,475°F. Weapons: Defensor wears a suit composed of vibranium; an extraterrestrial metal brought to earth by a huge meteor and found only in the African kingdom of Wakanda and the Antarctic hidden jungle called the Savage Land. Wakandan vibranium has the ability to absorb all ...

I would vote yes. Superman was shown being cut by the bony protrusions from Doomsday. And we know Wolverine can cut through extremely strong materials.


2

It depends on whether or not Superman's invulnerableness comes from a field or Density and then whether the Adamantium has been shaped into a thin enough wedge to cut through the density of Superman at a workable amount of force. Adamantium isn't "sharp". it's strong. It's edge will last a long time if formed into a blade and you could apply more force to it ...


1

The exact origin of Pro-Adamantium was never mentioned in comics. But I believe that the unknown catalyst/X-factor in the mixture must have caused a chemical-molecular reaction between Vibranium and the experimental iron alloy. The process must have converted the iron alloy into Proto-Adamantium and at the same time allowing the Vibranium to fuse. That ...
