Spiderman 2 - Doc Oc Ending
In the very end of the movie when Doc Oc is trying to create his energy source, the thing goes hay wire and he must drown it to destroy it. If the energy mass is acting like a gigantic magnet and attracting every metal source in NY city, why is it the metal frame holding the contraption over the water isn't destroyed. It's just the metal from the building, not like his arms which are not affected by magnets.

Only 3 metals are magnetic. Is it not possible that the frame was made of a metal like Titanium, which is not magnetic.

If iron was to be thrown into the reactor core, there would be too little energy to fuse the Iron nuclei, so the reactor would not act in the way it did. It is that reason that stars eventually die (along with neutrino build up). Also, if we pretended this was to be a proper reactor, all of the neutrons and gamma rays resulting from the reaction would kill Spiderman and Dr. Octopus, and the rest of the characters present in the warehouse. Even though Dr. Octopus's arms are made of metal, they could not survive 100,000,000 Kelvin of a thermonulcear fusion reactor. They would be turned into a plasma.

This is wrong because if you really were paying attention to what Doc oc says at the begining, his "metal" arms are not affected by the magnetic pull of the fusion.

well... i also wondered that since a fusion reaction is taking place... it would vaporize everything within a 4 mile radius... but assuming that is being contained by those weird probe things, wouldn't everything vaporize after Doc Oc knocks the fireball into the water without those guards? oh, and tritium is just hydrogen with two neutrons... not very rare at all

This is no perfect explanation for why the steel beams aren't attracted, but it most likely has to do with the fact that the fusion device is resting on the steel beams. It would be the equivalent of standing on a piece of wood and pulling it upwards. Your or the wood aren't going to move anywhere. One reason why it probably doesn't bend inwards is because it is being attracted at such a sharp angle vertically that it would most likely just compress, and seen as how the beams were designed to support a building I'm assuming they could take the stress. The reason why everything doesn't melt/vaporize, is if you listen to Doc Oc he mumbles a lot about a containment field which probably protects from the heat as well as radiation.
