Iron Man to Bruce Banner[src]

Cull Obsidian's Chain Hammer was a massive weapon utilized by Black Order member Cull Obsidian.


Infinity War

Attack on Greenwich Village

Cull Obsidian arrives on Earth with his weapon

Under orders from Thanos, Cull Obsidian along with Ebony Maw invaded Earth and descended in New York City. During the invasion, Obsidian used his hammer to fling Iron Man down the street and into Washington Square Park where he continued his attack, transforming his hammer into a shield to block blasts from Iron Man and continued his attack. Obsidian eventually overpowered Iron Man and knocked him down into the ground, but before he could crush Iron Man with his hammer, Spider-Man intervened and effortlessly held the hammer back.

Tossing Spider-Man aside, Cull Obsidian used his hammer as a massive pair of pliers to trap him and throw him away. He then continued to fight both Iron Man and Spider-Man, once again using the hammer to block Iron Man's blasts and to strike him, although he could not break through Iron Man's own shield. Cull Obsidian then once again used the hammer as pliers, restraining Iron Man on the ground, but before he could land the final blow, he was forced through a portal by Wong, stranding him in the Arctic.[1]

Battle of Wakanda
