Is there a thread or link about the appearances of adamantium in the Ultimate Universe? I really just want to know how rare it is and who uses it.
thanks.

Not really sure. Other than Wolverine's bones, Lady Deathstrike's claws (they were adamantium right?), and the needle Hawkeye shot Hulk with in Ultimates, I don't think its really been addressed otherwise.

To my finite knowledge there's no link, but the impression I've gotten is that its a lot rarer than in 616.

I expect that will change over time.

Just like the amount of mutants.

You're infinite knowledge proves you very....knowledgeable. :D

Yeah, that's most likely to occur.

Not ture, what's his face in Ultimate Spider-Man (blades on his wrists that generate electricity) wanted the adamantium in that facility and Spider-Man didn't know what it was. And Capatian America's shield is now Adamantium, many of Hawkeye's arrows are tipped in Adamantium. You know, they should have an Adamantium conspiracy arc in the UU.

Killer Shrike at Roxxon, correct?

Also, Sabretooth had adamantium bonded to his skeleton, claws, fingernail/claws, and teeth.

Correct. Whatever they do with the metal, I don't care as long as it doesn't pop up everywhere. It should be rare. And The Killer Shrike thing should be elaborated on in a future arc.

Yup. Forgot about those.

Yup to that too. Can't believe I forgot about Sabertooth. I'm getting rusty.

The group from the blockbuster arc had adamantuim plates(armor) and bullets, right?

Yup, I think they did as well, though I don't know what for. It wouldn't be anymore effective against Wolverine than a regular bullet, but the armor would be I suppose. Unless he just cut their arms off.

Sorry, but Sabes ONLY had adamantium claws. Nothing else.

True. But despite that, one of them was cracked/broken. So either somehow his adamantium managed to break, or his claws were around before he got the adamantium bonded to them (a la Wolverine in 616) and one had cracked somehow.

Once adamantium is in its solid state, the ONLY way to make it so your able to do whatever, is to get it into liquid, which can only happen with SUPER intense heat. Therefore, it cannot break. Sabertooth even said himself he had the claws only. Otherwise, Wolverine wouldn't have been able to slice his head off.

True, but this still means that he got the claws, then super-heated it just to break it? Doesn't make sense. And again, thats 616 adamantium, like I said while its similar, shouldn't necessarily assume they're exactly the same.

Don't matter. One or two minor things may or may not change, but overall, its the same deal.

Right, which, LIKE I SAID, if there's even minor changes, means you shouldn't assume they're exactly the same. Point is, how did Sabretooth break the claw if adamantium is unbreakable? Someone should ask on MW about that. I would but I can never get on the site cuz there's too many connections or some crap so I get an error screen unless I go on in the middle of the night.

Which would only mean its either:

A) Not actual adamntium, but something like secondary or lower, which can break with force.

or

B) Something happened behind the scenes we dont know of.

Exactly. Or someone botched the job while implanting the claws for him while they were still in their super-heated state.
