Sure, that Tony Stark kid is pretty cool (even if he’s not the first guy to come up with the idea of putting on a robotic exoskeleton and calling oneself ‘Iron Man’) but as interesting metallic compounds go, you could probably do better than boring old Iron.  The Metal Men run the gamut from liquid Mercury to nigh-impenetrable lead, while other super-dupers have metals that sound much more dynamic: Steel Sterling.  The Cobalt Man.  Radioactive gunfighter The Roentgenium Kid.  Indeed, even the nefarious Destro, arms-dealing associate of Cobra is known for his molybdenum headgear, leading us to today’s highly-polished query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced “moh-lib-duh-nim”) would probably choose something super-shiny and dense, but still thinks that Titanium is over-played, asking: If you could have a body made of any single metal, what would you choose?

    Liquid metal, like in the Terminator franchise.

    Otherwise, I’d choose Beskar from Star Wars (mostly mentioned in EU sources, such as comics, novels and games), the material that makes up Mandalorian armor.

      Really cant argue with that, liquid metal seems superior in almost every way.

    I think I’d like to be gold, and have all the money.
    “But Armaan, what good is money against supervilliany?”
    To which I say, “Ask Batman.”

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
