An unfinished vote incentive from the comic. I don't know what you make 800lb plates out of, but luckily Archon has them, otherwise Anvil would only be able to work out using the hydraulic platform.

Hmm, solid lead? No, maybe depleted uranium. It might be dense enough, and hey, its Archon, so who cares about a little bit of radiation here and there ^^

Any chance this might be finished someday?  I only ask because muscle-girl art is awesome, y'know.  ;) :D

you know, I was thinking of what those weights can be made out of, depleted Uranium is the heaviest natural element, but it's still a little radioactive and rather soft to make weights out of.  Lead is the heaviest element that's not radioactive, but it is still very soft, not to mention BOTH of these things are heavy metal toxins so the weights would simply be dangerous to touch or even be around.  But if they were made out of lead and then coated in plastic or something that would prevent it from coming into direct contact with people then it might be safer, assuming they didn't rip themselves off the bar because of their weight...(again falling back on the whole too soft thing.)  OH OH OH!  How about Tungsten?  It's a little lighter than lead but still really heavy and much harder.  It might be a little brittle so if she dropped it they might shatter, but I think you can make a plate out of that stuff

Lead is perfectly safe to handle for brief periods of time. You wouldn't want to make jewelry out of it, but handing lead weights is no problem. Given that it's also about 700lbs per cubic foot, it looks like a good contender for the weights on Anvil's bar. 
The REAL question is what the BAR is made of, since ten weights on either side means a total of 8 tons(!) total. The bar is very well reinforced, but even a steel I-beam that width would probably be pushed to its limits to hold that much weight.

the bar could be made out of titanium, which has the highest strength to weight ratio of any element, or it could be an alloy such as tungsten carbide or high carbon steel.

I can't tell which shirt I like more, the "This is why I squat shirt" or the Mario Mushroom shirt. One appeals to my inner pervert, the other my inner otaku.

Hmm, Carbon-titanium plates with solid dark matter cores?*

*Futurama reference :P
