okay but if cap’s shield absorbs all impact how can he bounce it off of things like a crazy boomerang
I am a huge Captain America nerd.
Steve’s shield is made of a fictitious Vibranium steel alloy. Vibranium is known for it’s vibration absorbing properties. When a shield hits a wall, normally a steel shield would vibrate after the initial strike and fall. When Steve’s shield strikes the same wall, it disperse energy but does not start to vibrate because of it’s vibration absorbing properties, and will not have it’s flight pattern thrown off.
Think his shield, not as a heavy piece of armor, but as an indestructible frisbee.
It’s also noted that his shield is significantly lighter than than it’s full steel counterpart, and that it has been crafted to be perfectly aerodynamic.
and there you have it!
