Hi guys (and Bulgarex
Both the Champions Universe
and its subsidiary Champions Online
employ a variety of fictional super metals, elements, and materials. Most of these items only have a brief explanation of their origins and physical properties. I am pretty curious about the history and appearance of these substances and have contemplated creation a number of characters incorporating them in some capacity. Without further ado...!
Let's start with neutronium
! From what I have gathered, it is suggested
to be from dead neutron stars and is considered "ultra heavy". Just how heavy is it? What does it look like? How long have we
known about it?
What can be said about kendrium
describes it as such: "An alloy of Titanium steel, with a number of chemicals and stuff made by Prof. Darryl Kendrick. It's stronger than steel without being too heavy. A more affordable supermetal if you will.
" So it is, indeed, an alloy? Is it just "shiny gray" like regular steel? How comparable is its weight with steel, exactly?
Next up are destreum
, and questionite
. The first is Dr. Destroyer's de-facto personally crafted metal, destreum
. It is said to be used in the construction (and armoring) of his various robots and suits of armor.... and that's about it! So I gotta' ask: is it purple?
It is said to be lightweight and robust... just how much? Orichalum
actually has a very concise physical description! Yay! It is said to be "redish-orange" or also "brownish orange" in color. It is also said to "hold magical properties very efficiently/well" and primarily finds uses in Atlantis. In fact, evidently it can only be found there
. How heavy and robust is it? Just how much of the stuff does Atlantis possess/have access to? Are they sitting on top of an enormous mine of it? Lastly, let's address questionite
! Is it, indeed, blue? It is said to be extremely
lightweight yet durable. Also it apparently originates from space -- asteroids and meteors, I assume? How much is on Earth and how "available" is it? Would it be more practical as an armor material or as a blade material, due to its ability to keep a sharp edge nearly indefinitely?
I'm also curious about other things such as "super plastics/polymers" and various chemicals, like draysha
. What similar analogs are there in the canon?
Thanks for reading all this garbled stuff and thank you for whatever information you may offer!
