@vance_astro: I really had no idea how skilled Logan was. On Marvels website his fighting rating was like a 4 and that seemed way off since dead pool was a 7 and Tchalla and Quill were both 6. So I prefer your opinions > that crap

Wolverine is one of the most skilled characters on Marvel Earth. The problem is that writer often either forget or disregard that and that was attempted to be explained with the "He forgets his training" plot device but even that is so inconsistent you never know which version of Wolverine you're going to get. Sometimes he struggles with a mediocre fighter like Blade, other times he outfights Iron Fist in sparring or completely decimates Shang Chi while in a feral state. Ignoring the inconsistencies I'd say for how skilled he seems intended to be he would be more skilled than Black Panther but by a very slim margin. The reason I wouldn't give the majority to either though is because it's hard to say whether T'Challa's intellect in combat & equipment is a bigger advantage than Wolverine's claws & healing factor. That's hard to calculate because like his fighting skill, Wolverine's healing factor has also been shown inconsistently. Some writers think that class 10 characters like Spider-Man are incapable of hurting him, others think that street levelers even under that level can KO him. More consistently it seems to take quite a bit to actually take Wolverine down. I think T'Challa can do it, just not for the majority.

@wolverine08: I disagree with several things in this article. 1) Lobo has received a cool new costume, 2) You can't deny Falcon the credit he deserves. A former drug lord with wings from WaKanda has a very interesting backstory, as well as a legitimate contribution to the Avengers. As does 3) Black Widow. Don't take these honored superheroes and talk shit about them.

Falcon hasn't made any legitimate contributions to the Avengers and neither has Black Widow. If neither character existed, pretty much nothing would be different. You think they are interesting, good for you. Before Falcon was set to appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier he was virtually unseen. The Avengers rearranged their roster several times in the last decade and he didn't make the roster until they put the team back together completely. They never even made him a member of the New Avengers although he was regularly appearing in Captain America as Bucky's ally. You know why that is? You know why they had Spider-Man, Iron Fist, Wolverine and even Daredevil showing up on that team and not Falcon? Because he's a boring, unimportant character...that's why! The only reason now he's doing anything with Avengers is because of his connection to Steve Rogers. Any buzz around Captain America was created by Steve Rogers, not Sam Wilson. Black Widow is in the same boat. Instead of Marvel using The Wasp who was actually a founding member of the Avengers they decided the female character they wanted to go with was Black Widow, she's never been able to carry a book on her own and the only reason she's appearing more in comics now is because of her role in the films. It has nothing to do with any contributions to the team. I actually like Black Widow as a character but on a team with the Norse God of Thunder, A scientist that turns into a monster, A Mutant that can manipulate reality, A billionaire inventor in an armored suit, A Mutant with Superhuman Speed and another Super Soldier characters like her don't stand out. She's basically a russian, female version of Captain America. As useless as people might say Hawkeye is at least his archery & trick arrows make him different from other members.

@vance_astro: yes he would

You bumped a 6 year old thread to disagree with me about something that isn't even relevant to who wins or loses in this matchup? You're joking right?

I don't think Old Man Logan can win. Miles has too many abilities. As far as I remember Old Man Logan hasn't been shown to be as skilled or as fast as Earth-616 Logan. He's probably more ruthless than his Earth-616 counterpart but I think Miles has too many advantages. Range, stealth, agility, strength & speed are all in his favor.

Recast and use a British actor this time

Idris Elba? Oh wait, no, he was completely wasted on Heimdall.....

Idris Elba would be a perfect John Stewart.

I don't think you can be on both teams anymore.
