It's more likely to be one of the thousands of other kooky types of metal in the MU. Like Anti-Metal or something. I'm not gonna go ahead and say that's what it is because WE DON'T KNOW.
My point is that Stark did NOT create a new element that never existed. He created a new element uknown to the masses. Nick Fury clearly new the existance of this new element. I just think if Vibranium was already known to the world it would've been used and weaponized.
But in the end, you're right about us just not knowing. I'm confident I know, but really who does??
It's fun to talk about this stuff, anyway...
