Nth-Metal is a metal native to Thanagar. Among the unusual properties of the metal is the ability to negate gravity, allowing a person wearing an object made of Nth-Metal; such as a belt, to fly.
In addition, the metal can also speed the healing of wounds, increase the wearer's strength, and protects them from the environment and extremes in temperature. The metal also possesses innate anti-magical properties.


In ancient Egypt a Thanagarian spaceship made of Nth-Metal crash-landed, only to be discovered by Prince Khufu and his betrothed, Chay-ara. Constant exposure to the metal forced Khufu and Chay-ara into a cycle of reincarnation. In the 20th century, they were incarnated as Carter Hall and Shiera Saunders, the original Hawkman and Hawkgirl where they wore Nth metal belts, made with the help of the Thanagarian Paran Katar.


  • A sample of Nth-Metal appears as a captured artifact within the Nexus of Reality. Due to it's presence, power pools will appear on the floor during the final battle that will provide Power if a player stands within them.
  • Nth-Metal is the core reagent for Artifacts. Once the player has acquired their first Artifact, they will be able to find Nth Metal as a rare drop from defeating NPCs and be able to get large caches of Nth Metal by completing the Vault and the Stabilizer Event. Nth Metal comes in various qualities, with rarer, more refined pieces granting larger amounts of Item Experience when used to fortify Artifacts.



  • In the future, members of the Legion of Super Heroes wear flight rings made of an alloy of Nth metal called Valorium.
  • Carter and Shiera's son, Hector Hall, made a suit of armor made of Nth metal and took the name Silver Scarab as a founding member of Infinity Inc.
  • Hawkman and Hawkgirl's chest harnesses are made with Nth-Metal which is the source of their strength and ability to fly.
