i had an idea once for a what if where instead of adamantium the weapon x  program had used uru metal to make wolverine, would the mystical properties have any effect? and if so what would they be? i was gonna write a fan fic about it but wanted to hear others thoughts on it first

I think the metal would just be stronger.

@joshmightbe: Ha ha ha I found where you got your own idea for Bishop Cain getting Uru embedded into himself :)

if the experiment would be a success (nothing less than the heat from a star, or the very forges of Asgard will provide sufficient heat to shape and mold the metal) uru metal should work and Wolverine would be, among other things the proud owner of the "magic sponge" which means that any oponent using magic can't do much.

The question on my mind is : would Magneto still be able to control Wolverine ? (normally he shouldn't, since uru metal is more..... special, not earthly at all)

It would be cool to see Wolverine with an uru skeleton. I like the idea.

@Skathatch: That's an awesome analysis

@joshmightbe: Doesn't it have to be blessed by Odin or something for it to be magical?

@CapFanboy: I think that only applies to Thor's hammer and it's copies

That's a great idea although how would the Weapon X programme have gotten hold of some Uru metal? And what if Cap's shield was made entirely of uru instead of just having uru enhancements like it currently does? I think that would be awesome too.

Wouldn't it affect his healing factor since he wouldn't be constantly fighting the adamantium poisoning?

@Onemoreposter: Yeah he'd probably heal like almost instanteously, good point

I should probably be flogged for not looking it up in the wiki before responding, but is uru a magical sponge, just sucking magic up and making it disappear, or is it that uru is more magically conductive? Meaning: it's more likely for a spell to stick to it. Seems like Wolvie would be more vulnerable to curses and other spells.
