Calibans Death

#1 Posted by beastmanX (285 posts) - - Show Bio

Ive been thinking about something for a while. Everyone knows that Caliban died saving Warpath from a line of gunfire. But isnt Warpath bulletproof ?

I don't remember Warpath being bulletproof.

Not that I know of.  Fast, strong & agile... but I don't think he's actually invulnerable like Rogue/Ms Marvel.  Then again, I could be wrong :p

I thought he had durability well beyond being bulletproof, but Caliban wasn't shot with just some regular old bullet.

I think his durability has been nerfed considerably over the years. In any case, a high caliber gunshot like that to the head would have put Warpath down.

No it doesn't.Marvel Database made reference to a time when Warpath was significantly more powerful...in which he could take bullets.Warpath was slightly depowered.

Yeah, they did depower him quite a bit. It just doesn't make sense why they would do that. Guido's stronger than him now for christ's sake.

Hold on he is bullet proof i know this for a fact, im not a warpath fan but in one of the X-men when emma and scott were in a hippie town caused by masterminds daughter she took control of some mutants and Warpath was one and thats when emma said he was bullet proof, and i think emma out of all mutants should know what other mutants powers are

Warpath isn't bulletproof.

No, Scott asked her if one of his powers was invulnerability, and she said she didn't remember.

Warpath does have high enough durability to take an optic blast at close range, but not a full power one.

A high calibre bullet would cut through his skull like butter.

Marvel Database isn't  credible source of information because anyone can sign up & change it without any form of moderation.  

In the recent X-Force, Wolverine chastises Laura for setting off explosives within the Purifiers base, stating that although both her (Wolvie) and she could survive the blast neither Warpath nor Wolfsbane had the powers to withstand that kind of blast & therefore she shouldn't have put them in danger.  Moments later Warpath emerged saying that the Purifiers took the brunt of the blast.

If he was bullet proof then he wouldn't give a second thought about a bomb.

When, please.  I'll admit that I haven't read every comic ever, but I'd like to see this...

He should be tough, but not bulletproof.
