I did a search prior to this and found that there was actually a lack of topics created about this. Most included X-23 in a triple-threat match. So, after much thought, I decided to compile this.
 

Setting/Rules

  • No muramasa blades/Daken doesn't have his claws merged with muramasa metal
  • No ambushes/traps
  • They begin on a rooftop in Hell's Kitchen, and it's raining (similar to when Daken fought Punisher)
  • Both are prepared for the fight, but they don't bring any side weapons
  • I would say to the death, but, it's kind of hard with their factors. I suppose its whoever takes more than twenty-seconds to get up off the ground.
 

Comparing Their Traits

Wolverine:
  • Adamantium skeleton
  • More experienced fighter
  • Arguably stronger than Daken
Daken:
  • More agile due to lack of adamantium
  • Healing factor is faster due to lack of adamantium
  • More psychotic
 
Begin your debate, lads and lasses!

I would think(or at least hope) that if Wolverine would stop crying about his son, who clearly doesn't care about him and is often the one trying to kill him, and stop helping him whenever he feels he's in trouble, Daken would be dead by now.

#3 Posted by RainEffect (3240 posts) - - Show Bio
@Westlife: I assume what you meant by that was that Daken's only alive because Logan keeps saving his life?
 
If so, that's entirely untrue. Daken has done some pretty amazing things since he's been introduced. He elaborately blackmailed/murdered his way to becoming kingpin of Madripoor (his 'empire'), he's taken on a variety of deadly fighters (Demonically possessed Wolverine, X-23, Punisher etc). He doesn't get enough credit, honestly.

@RainEffect: I'm saying I hope so. What I really mean is I don't like it that Daken is constantly trying to kill Wolverine and his friends, and yet Wolverine doesn't want anyone else to fight him. Can't wait for X-23 to fight him and fights anyone who tries to fight him. I hope she kicks his ass(wish Wolverine and Gambit would be there to see it).

@RainEffect: you said that his healing factor is worse with adamantium? it was my understanding that it was in fact better because his body was constantly rejecting it and so is forced to be at a consistant level and a high one at that in terms of healing speed.
#8 Posted by SoA (4843 posts) - - Show Bio

@Blood_guts: wolverine's body sees the adamantium as a foreign substance so it slows down his healing since the adamantium is poisonus and its focusing on preventing him from getting poisoned . when he had just bone claws it was said he healed alot faster than with adamantium

i understand the foreign substance bit but i had a conversation about this, specifically deadpool's healing factor vs wolverine's. my friend told me that the consistency of wolverine's healing factor versus deadpool's sporadic healing is because of the adamantium. also my friend seemed to be under the impression this over working of his system put his healing factor into overdrive making it work better than bone claw. is there any truth to this you think?
#10 Posted by SoA (4843 posts) - - Show Bio

@Blood_guts: no , not really lol. if there is any depictions showing otherwise it may have to be whoever is writing for wolverine . deadpool is essentially immortal and can grow back a head . ive never known wolverine to do that . near decapitations , disembowelment always kept wolverine down for a time . also in what-if or alternate world stories if wolverine lost his healing factor his skin boiled up or sores started appearing proof of the metal poisoning , wolverine can heal fast but when its heavy damage like what i mentioned above he takes his time to heal . bone claw version i think his only drawback was bones didnt heal as fast so if he broke any bones it would be awhile. if anyone can prove otherwise by all means speak up lol

Wolverine is always better than Daken. 125 estimated years life of fighting and killing experience vs how ever old is Daken and whenever he started train and killing. 

#12 Posted by Fluke-buddha (644 posts) - - Show Bio

With morals off Wolverine definitely wins.  He has waaaaaayyyyyyyyy more training than Daken, and a wealth of battle experience.  The only reason Logan hasn't already killed him is because it's his kid.

It's an interesting theory, but think about it this way.
 
If you have a cold, your immune system devotes its energy (white blood cells) to fight off the sickness, therefore other portions of your body may suffer (dehydration, sore nose from constant blowing, exhaustion due to constant battle). It's the same with Wolverine, his immune system is rapidly fighting off an invasive poison and devoting much of its energy and concentration on the adamantium not killing him. As SoA said, Logan stated his healing factor was much more effective without the metal because it could devote full capabilities into healing. 
 
This is further cemented in the X-23 and Daken issues where they heal almost immediately from pretty lethal things, as they don't have an adamantium skeleton (though Laura has the claws and talons, of course).

Logan has the experience, Daken has the pheromones. That's what it comes down to, imo. You'd think Wolverine would be immune to the pheromones, since he spends his life knee deep in them, but.....I don't know.

Oh c'on. Wolverine has his share of experience sniffing and tasting the pheromones of other enemies before. Omega Red being the most distinct of the kind.

Logan can say whatever he wants, there should be a decisive on-panel fight between the two. Or barring that, a side-by-side evaluation of their respective skills and abilities. Comic books are filled with characters making statements that aren't necessarily true.

You would also think that there might be some form of resistance considering they are from his flesh and blood.
 
Although, that'd be one heck of an 'F-You' to the old man to mess with his mental stability mid-fight.

Wolverine has more experience over Daken, he's been through a-lot more, he's also had more fighting skill and can take more punishment.

Omega red's & Dakens Pheromones work differently thou omega red's are fatal while Dakens changes peoples perspective & their emotional state so daken using that he can beat wolverine .

 Logan "said" it after Daken beat him and sliced his throat as the coup de grace. And it was not a statement, it was a thought. Logan thought to himself, "he's better than me."
 
 
 
As for decisive fights, there have been two. One that Daken won, and another that Wolverine won by using the muramasa blade and receiving additional training from Silver Samurai as preparation for facing Daken.

right right thats how a human system works. however i thought since he was a mutant with his powers related to his healing that they would work differently. keep in mind though its not my theory its my friend so i cant defend it so well. however if x-23 and daken heal faster than him then the only conclusion is the adamantium hinders his healing.

I would give the majority to Daken as far as their confrontations have gone, Daken's done some pretty impressive things that have gone under the radar, like punking Cyber and leaving him to die, also punking Deadpool.  He definitely doesn't get as much attention as Wolverine, but if the writers would give Daken more confrontations with more established and mainstream characters, his appeal would significantly increase, i'm sure.

Bone. There was a period where the Tinkerer laced them with a derivative of the Muramasa blade metal, though.

@Morpheus_
Wait, you mean Wolverine actually fought the brat?


I hope X-23 kicks his ass. Daken's ass, not Wolverines. I hope Gambit kicks his.



WHERE THE HELL IS SABRETOOTH! I WANT HIM BACK! And I'm usually against bringing back characters.

@Westlife: Not to burst your Daken getting his butt handed to him, but X-23 and him had a pretty crap fight, like 3-5 pages and no one really got the edge as Daken left after the fight, they only got cut up. But if it makes you feel better Gambit blew off Daken's arm like a bawse but they didn't fighter either more talked.

@Westlife: It bounced between the X-23 and Daken solo series I'll look up the issue numbers if you want I wanna say it's 8-10 for both series. Also since you didn't see the Gambit there, here you go.

The fact that he's stomped Logan in damn near every encounter they've had. I guess Wolverine holds back because it's his son but... I don't know. That's not really enough for me to believe he can win. Even if Logan isn't fighting to his fullest, he can at the very least make an effort to react to Daken rather than pretty much get blitzed. This leads me to believe that he can't react, that Daken is just better.
