When Captain America throws his mighty shield, all who oppose his mighty shield must yield! Well, apparently not everyone. Captain America's mighty vibranium shield is not only a staple of the Avengers team, but essentially symbolizes everything the good soldier stands for.
The mighty shield he uses is actually much more than a glorified frisbee. It is composed of vibranium, a powerful metal found in Wakanda that essentially absorbs the power of all impacts through vibrations. It's not quite as strong as adamantium, but it's still a force to be reckoned with. Because of the composure of the metal, the shield is also incredibly lightweight, and sometimes even defies the laws of physics (those of you who saw Civil War already will get the joke).
We've already seen in many of the MCU movies just how strong the shield is. It can take a hit from Thor's hammer without a single scratch, has deflected Loki's scepter, and can hold back Iron Man's repulsor blasts. However, the shield is not indestructible. Across the multiverse in Marvel history, there have been several instances where Cap's shield has been broken or shattered. Now, not all of these examples are from the main universe (Earth-616) simply because there weren't very many times it happened there according to my research. Regardless, Cap's shield was still broken, and here are eleven people that did it.
11 Doctor Doom
10 Molecule Man
8 King Thor
7 The Serpent
This comes directly from the cartoon Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. During the episode "The Fall of Asgard," Loki is seeking to take over Asgard and finally put an end to his brother Thor. Naturally, the Avengers come to stop him from doing so. However, Loki gains access to the Odin Force, and when Captain America comes to fight him, the God of Mischief shatters the shield into tiny fragments. The Captain ends up using Lady Sif's shield for the rest of the fight, but it was a devastating defeat for Steve Rogers, nonetheless.
