huh... at the Olympics they have 50m prone and three positions with .22's. Other than that they have the 10m air rifle. All those events were won by east European dudes (Slovenia and Ukraine I believe, not sure about the air rifle but was definitely won by an European).yo mato said:A good sniper has the ability to put a bullet in the exact same orifice the first bullet left.
The world olympic champion is a marine, I think, and he can do exactly that.
Well, like myself and others have mentioned, he controls metal, including non-ferrous ones. It's fair to assume it's not actually the scientific magnetic force in that case.Maximum_Power_Cheese_Supreme said:The real question is whether magnetic force travels faster or behind the speed of the bullet?Joshimodo said:He has an electromagnetic field around him, so yes, he can "feel" or sense metals within that radius. That said, bullets (typical ones, anyway) are lead. Non-ferrous, as in, non-magnetic. Any gun would realistically take him down.
That said, it's known that he controls/feels all metal, not just ferrous ones, so who knows?
Anything that can conduct electricity will be effected by magnetic fields. Certain metals like Iron are affected differently and I can't remember the high school physics reason why but the electro-magnetic effect stated in certain laws (again I can't remember them) means that any conductor that moves through a magnetic field will have a current generated within it, the current will experience a force as it passes through the field that will resist the direction of motion and thus the conductor will lose kinetic energy.Iron Mal said:Well, seeing as he is the 'Master of Magnetism' (as in he has control and influence over magnetic fields) that doesn't nessercarily give him a mastery over all metals (something I always found weird in the films).
Not all metals are magnetic (if I remember correctly from school, only Iron, Steel, Nickel and Cobalt are) so it's very easy to assume that not only could you shoot him with a sniper bullet, you probably could do it with most bullets (I'll give Adamantium a free pass in this because that is a fictional substance so it could very well be magnetic).
So 'Master of Magnetism' wouldn't suddenly mean you are the master of all that is metal (that power belongs to Iron Maiden) and it definately wouldn't make you immune to assassination.
i always thought he could sense mental, had a connection of sorts with it, so he would be able to 'feel' the bullet coming towards him. the sniper could always get non metal bullets though, unless magneto wears armour...Kapol said:Pretty much this. Though I think he can 'sense' metal in a way, which means that he'd sense the bullet coming at him and be able to stop it. I say that mainly based on the second movie where he 'senses' the iron in the guard's bloodstream and tears it out of him.Meatramen said:Depends, he is aware that a lot of people hate him, so he might have a strong magnetic field around him at all times... However they could make the bullet out of something other than metal and BOOM, headshot.
Adamantium, while TECHNICALLY an unobtainium-like concept, has always been considered an indestructible metal, even when it was known in mythology as Adamant. Sometimes this was referring to diamond, sometimes it literally meant a metal that would not break. Tolkien may have created mithril as an elven word for this kind of adamant. Also, in the Marvel universe, it's made of an unobtainium called Vibronium when alloyed with steel. So, literally, while unobtainium is whatever you want it to be, adamantium has to be indestructible, or else it isn't adamantium.The Lugz said:Adamantium is a fictitious indestructible metal alloy.Nieroshai said:Adamantium. Different concept.
which is the definition of Unobtainium by default
any substance with impossible characteristics, used to fill a specific theoretical role
quite the same concept, in fact
