Why is CapIW not metal and Vision is?

So captain infinity war does not get magnetized by magneto. The logic is that vibranium is a special metal and his shields are vibranium.
Idk about the comics, but in the movies at least, Vision AOU was pure vibranium. So why does vision AOU get magnetized?

    This is because Cap IW is a super soldier. His main strength is his will power, stamina and raw strength. The shield is just his toy.

    CapIW just has the two Arm Shields/Weapons. Nothing else about him is metal. Kabam has stated they aren't making champs with metal weapons #metal.

    Tags are approved with Marvel. So if they say Vision is metal, he's metal.
    Still doesn't really explain why vision is metal and black panther isn't

    To have too many champions of metal is a very bad idea because it means it would overpower Magneto and so underpower them. It also also means to allow Magneto to be unstoppable on the quests.
    Magneto is already powerful enough. Do you really want to see him nerfed like Scarlet and Strange???

    Viz is a "robot". Seems obvious

    Cap can drop his shield (metal - although vibranium tends not to be considered metal in the game, vision exception or wtvr) if vision dropped his metal, there would be no vision

    The OP has a fair argument, on its face. Let's drill a little deeper.
    If Vision has a vibranium exoskeleton, Magneto could not magnetize that. Correct.
    But that would not protect any of the metal parts inside that are not vibranium. The wires. Any welding. Any metal on circuitry boards. Screws. Nuts. Bolts.
    All it would take is for 1 metal component not to be made of vibranium. That is all Magneto needs to destroy Vision's body internally.

    The simplest answer? Vision has had numerous bodies. Maybe the MCOC version isn't vibranium. 🤷

    This probably explains it

    Vision age of ultron is just vibranium and biological matter

    Hes made put of more than that. As has been discussed previously you cannot really make effective machines out of just 1 type of metal. You need both insulative parts and conductive parts for machines that use power to operate. Considering that Viz AOU is not handcrank (no dirty jokes!) I think hes probably needing to be able to conduct and/or store power using non-vibranium components.

    Vision isn’t pure vibranium, he’d have to have some sort of internal technology to even function and process things. Vibranium isn’t a replacement for all that. That’s probably why he’s metal.

    True... this is the only reasonable explanation i guess

    Drop your shield and magneto will throw it through your heart 😂

    According to comics Vibranium can not be magnetised.

    Nah cap would catch it. Hes kind of good at redirecting it. Magneto doing that seems like he'd end up thinking he'd dealt with Cap and then have his helmet caved in when Cap twists it a bit and it bounces off a gas pump, a book store, and a passing minivan to dome him.

    They've addressed that and said that not every comic logic/reason applies to every reality or character in the game, and also he can't actually function as pure vibranium. He has to have other components that can conduct.
