OK Wolverine's claws come out ether the top of his hand or between his knuckles and they are housed in his forearm, my question is if he was to extend his hand like in the pic would the claws come out of his wrist?

according to the movie, and basic logic, they're housed in his forarm...

see? that allows the wrist to still have full movement :D

so if he 'snicked' them open while his hand was in the poisition you have pictured, then it would rip through his hand and out of the palm, unless they were stopped by the adamantium hand bones that is...

From the page:

"The point of the claws rest just behind the bend of the wrist axis, allowing for freedom of joint movement, and the external, Adamantium part of the claw sheath (something that no longer exists in more recent Wolverine illustrations) contains an inert silicone bushing that acts as a resilient body seal. While Logan can bend his wrists with his claws retracted or fully extended, he cannot, in fact, extend them with a bent wrist. Such an effort would torque the line of his claws' exit point, distorting where they would surface. But more importantly, attempting to unsheathe his claws with an unaligned wrist is impossible, simply because the muscles could not function to push them out."

What ever happened to Two Spirit? She was pretty excited about making the page. It was a great idea. Then she disappeared. Maybe Weapon X wasn't too happy with her divulging their secrets.
