i think lightning and earth elements are components of steel release ,because stone(Earth) is a non-conductable material ,thought by fusing it with electricity(Lightning) it gaines extra electrons -like a natural conductor does - so it turns to metal!!! or whatever ..... 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:07, October 29, 2009 (UTC)

I think (if its possible) that steel release is a combination of earth and yin. Not to speculate much on it actually not being elemental but if anyone watches fullmetal alchemist you may remember greed manipulating carbon atoms to give a similar effect to this nature. Since steel is simply a compound of durable iron and carbon, its possible that he uses the carbon atoms in his body to create a super dense shield. This is just a speculation and if anyone else noticed, steel isnt actually black but carbon is. —This unsigned comment was made by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) .
