If the comet was headed right for us would it actually make an impact or would it get destroyed in our atmosphere?

It's the size of a city block, it would definitely impact.

First comets are made up of ice for the most part this was an asteroid made up of rock/metals.

Second that would depend on several factors like what its made of and how that material is compressed.Also speed and angle play a factor super steep and it would burn up are explode.Super shallow and it could bounce off.
