HELL YES IT CAN! just looks like it could
Yes it can
No it can't
The most popular debate from IRC comes to Penciljack!
well there's so many factors to deal with in this equation. first off the sheild is adamantium alloy so that makes it retardedly hard to destroy. but perhaps a laser can indeed break it apart at the nessacary heat levels. but just how powerful is a lightsabre? sure it can cut through metal designed to deal with a vaccum, but what about different powerlevels and...wait...WHAT THE ****??
i said no ultimately since a light sabre exists in the mind of george lucas. its a fantasy world where concentrated light inexplicably stops at three feet from it's source. whereas the sheild works in a more realistic world where a man dresses in armour and throws a giant metal disc around like a boomarang for the betterment of his country.
ok i said i know be to an ass...
This is such a stupid question.
OF COURSE a lightsaber can cut through adamantium! Its a sword made out of PURE ENERGY. Its not a matter of if its a matter of when. It'd just heat the metal until it is soft enough to be pushed out of the way. The only problem is finding something strong enough to support the shield as it is being repelled by the saber.
The REAL question is are we talking about before or after the Beyonder destroyed and reassembled the shield during the Secret Wars?
We all know that after the Beyonder recreated it there was a submolecular flaw in the adamantium-vibranium alloy and it became vulnerable.
The new photonic energy shield with a flexible containment matrix Cap. America got after his first shield broke could take the brunt of the lightsaber attack due to the photon composition of both the weapons.
Now unfortunately since I posted on this thread , that insures that I will not be getting laid tonight. My girlfriend may not know of this thread but she will know that I did something that makes me unf!ckable.OK, in the Marvel Universe the two most powerful artifacts on planet Earth are Caps shield and Thor's hammer.
Cap's sheild is made of an adamanatium/vibrainum alloy. Completly unique in the universe. In the 1980's Marvel Superheroes RPG it had a tensil strength of Class 3000.
Whereas adamantium was Class 1000 and vibrainium was Shift X (150)
Thor's Hammer was composed of two parts, the head was made of Uru a metal from the storm giants mountains which was forged by goblins and the shaft was composed from the wood of Ydgrassil the World Tree. Both these pieces were bonded by the powerful magicks of the All Father Odin. Mjolinr's tensil strength is Class 3000.

Dammit, the tape on my glasses just broke.
Actually, this sounds like a job for "Hey! Spring of Trivia." It's similar to an episode where they determine whether a high pressure water cutter can cut through a samurai sword. There was even an awesome clip of the samurai sword slicing through a bullet that was fired at it.
Is there anything in our world that closely mimics lightsabers and Cap's shield? Perhaps, someone should set up a Mythbusters-like test/experiment.
A plasma torch turned all the way up to it's highest setting might recreate a lightsaber's effect, but I can't think of anything that approximates adamantium.
What's the melting point of adamantium? Have they ever said?
Like Cap's arm.Originally Posted by Akira X
Course it can!
