Magneto and adamantium

I am kind of confused on how Magneto took the adamantium out of Wolverine. It appears that he liquified the metal and ripped it out of him. Also, in the movies it shows magneto bending it with little effort. I read up on magneto's powers and it said that he has the ability to liquify metals including Adamantium. I thought once Adamantium was solid, it couldn't be melted, but does that mean it can't be liquified by other means? I think that there is anti-metal or anti-vibranium or something like that that can liquify metals including adamantium as well. Can someone explain this? Is magneto just manipulating the adamantium on an atomic level witch makes it appear liquid? Thanks!

The short answer is yes, though the molecular level would probably suffice. He wouldn't have to go to the atomic level.

Magneto of the comic books is much more powerful than his movie counterpart. Manipulating adamantium is childsplay.

For me, it can also be not making adamantium to liquid form but rather change its' shape, since metal is highly malleable it can be bended, so the incident where in Magneto extracted it from Wolverine is that the adamantium was made to go out of Wolverine's pore and skin so it passed through like veins.

Its not when its hardened. At the state it was it be impossible just to try and manipulate it unless you do it at a very small level. Molecular level.
