Amalgam is a fictional character in the Marvel Universe, a hero who is known to go through the timestream and absorb the traits of dying mutants, so that part of them can still carry on the quest for mutantkind. She first appeared in Uncanny X-Men Annual #16. This was also the issue in which she offered Archangel "The Choice;" a decision to allow her to absorb the mutant's features. She is considered a future version of the X-Men Rogue, having the same power, similar outfit, and appearance.
- Amalgam: In dentistry, amalgam is an alloy of mercury with various metals used for dental fillings. It commonly consists of mercury, silver, tin, copper, and other trace metals. Dental amalgams were first documented in a Tang Dynasty medical text written by Su Kung in 659, and appeared in Germany in 1528. In the 1800s, amalgam became the dental restorative material of choice due to its low cost, ease of application, strength, and durability.
- also known as Amalgam table, dental amalgam
- Amalgam: An alloy, typically a mix of silver, tin, and mercury, used in direct dental restorations.
