In Fantastic Four #41, Marvel unleashes a weapon similar to Star Wars lightsabers that can cut through powerful metals like Vibranium and Adamantium.
Marvel Comics gave a character his own version of a star wars lightsaber in the latest issue of The Fantastic Four – and heroes such as Black Panther, Captain America, and Wolverine better watch out, as these weapons can cut through Vibranium and Adamantium.
In The Fantastic Four #41, the titular Marvel heroes launch an attack on the Reckoning in the Shi’ar galaxy when Ben Grimm, also known as Thing, gets a rather personal look at how the mystical weapon works. He crosses the battlefield to fight a villain named Rapture, who is a member of the Reckoning. Upon engaging with the Thing, Rapture pulls out two unnamed lightsaber-like weapons and begins to wield them in a stance that will feel familiar. star wars Fans.
Before long, Rapture makes the most of the Thing and presents what promises to be a striking blow – only, for reasons that aren’t immediately clear, the blow does little physical damage to the hero. Even the Thing is troubled by this, as he pauses to think about how this happened when he “should have cut off my fingers”.
Looking down at his fingers, the Thing sees his wedding ring crumble to the ground into small pieces. Still confused as to how his shot didn’t land, Rapture wonders, “What was that? Vibranium? Adamantium? You won’t be so lucky the second time around!” The implication is that Rapture’s weapon can cut through either metal with relative ease, which could cause huge problems for some Marvel Universe heroes in the future. count the war scenarios.
