Adamantium/Vibranium Alloy ShieldEdit

Cap Shield

Dr. Myron MacLain tried to create a metal that was comparably durable to Hercules' Adamantine mace. He experimented on Wakandan Vibranium because of its unique capabilities. One night, Dr. MacLain fell asleep and an unknown catalyst fused the Vibranium and an experimental metal alloy later to be named Adamantium. Because he fell asleep, Dr. MacLain wasn't able to replicate the bonding process or knew what the catalyst had been. It was then poured into a mold for a tank hatch to give it a circular form, and painted into an American flag motif. President Franklin Roosevelt presented this new shield to Captain America.
