Has anyone ever tried to snap Wolverine's neck?

Also, wasn't there an issue where Wolverine was laughing off Spider-Man's punches and it was implied Parker would have to kill Old James in order to put him down? Thanks.

You can't snap Adamantium.

Eh...I think Dracula tried ripping his arms off but wasn't able to.

That's interesting though, cause Parker said the same thing about the Hulk.

@texasdeathmatch: That's kinda disturbing for some reason.

@PaperRonin: I can't, but there are some who are powerful enough to destroy it (Thor the Reigning).

@The_Last_Son_of_Czarnia: It kinda sounds like Spider-Man might be in over his head and just saying, "Yeah I could beat them...but I don't want to."

That does not matter. People who get their neck snapped and die, don't die because their neck bones are shattered. 
And yes, Wolverine should die if someone 'snaps' his neck, because even his head should be turnable to an unhealthy degree and his nerves would be badly damaged = he would be near death, but probably instantly regenerate again. At least that's how I see it.

You wouldn't have to. The vertebrae in the spine are not fused, they are separated by cartilage disks, which are the things that usually fail when someone's neck is snapped. As far as I know, Wolverine's cartilage isn't reinforced like his bones are. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't matter, though, as his healing factor would fix the disks and his spinal cord after a break.

Mary Jane asked Pete if he could beat the Hulk, to which he replied that he could, but in order to do so, he'd have to kill him. The method was never specified. It was during the JMS/JRJR run on Amazing Spider-Man.

No reason to assume such a thing. Whether the statement was feasible is another thing entirely.

I can just picture him webslinging along, snapping people's necks like Steven Seagal on Mad TV.

And we all know that statement isn't true - Spidey just needs a cement truck. (I'm joking)

Wolverine is the person who stated Parker would need to snap his neck to put him down.  It's from Spider-Man vs Wolverine #1.  It's the same issue in which Ned Leeds was murdered.

Spidey knocking out the Hulk by throwing a truck on his head and trash-talking him afterwards is one of the funniest things I've seen in comics, anyway.

Wolverine bones are Adamantium but not the tendons, muscles and joints that connect each bone. 
 

With the hip bone connected
to the back bone,
and the back bone connected
to the neck bone,

to the head bone,
Oh mercy how they scare!

Do you remember the issue number?

@Morpheus_: I wish Superman would stop trash-talking.

And yeah, I'd pay good money to see the infamous cement truck incident. Happened around the time Hal KO'd the General with a truck IIRC.

BTW, the question I am asking isn't whether or not neck-snapping would work on Wolverine. It's whether anyone has ever tried.

Yes, people tried, but he would still heal from it. However, no one has tried to rip his head off, probably because he can guard his head well. But if Wolverine was asleep  or in a coma and someone with a hack saw is able to hack each limb off by the joints.

@tron_bonne: I believe his entire skeletal structure is bonded and fused on a molecular level with Adamantium in such that it doesn't inhibit its natural abilities.

Hi Skeletal structure, yes but not the tendons, fat and muscle that connect each joint to each bone. Logan got his forearm permanently cut off before because of what I've mentioned.

@tron_bonne: Was that in Age of Apocalypse? He's regenerated his arm within panels fighting Cassandra Nova.

Also, who (besides Chris Redfield) has tried to snap his neck? Thanks.

There are lots of incidents. I'm trying to find Hellfire Club fights, because one of the Shaw's I think it was Shinobi did snap Logan's neck. 
 
Spiderman could have snapped Logan's neck, but his moral value of life prevented him from doing it.

Wolverine's ligiments and such are as indestructable as his bones. I want to say it Beta Adamantium or something. That his healing factor altered it when it was introduced to his system so he can move and be unbreakable and all that lameness. Otherwise Ba'al and others who have tried to tear him limb from limb would have pulled an Ultimate Hulk. Tronne, Logan seems to me like he was humoring Pete. At the end of that faceoff, Logan would have dusted himself off and Pete would be drinking a beer with Uncle Ben and Saint Peter.

I think you're thinking of Ultimate Wolverine. I recall reading in one of the Marvel Bullpen Bulletins at the back of a comic someone asked why Wolverine's bones don't pop out his body after he falls off a building or something. The editor answered that each of his bones were connected by microscopic Adamantium chains.

@HughJass: I think Stan Lee went on record in one of those to say Mjolnir isn't magnetic. It clearly is.

I thought Magneto moved it by creating a thin electromagnetic forcefield around it (or something similar), which doesn't necessarily make it magnetic. If that's the instance you're referring to.

Ulik disarmed Thor with a magnetic shield in Wolverine First Class.

Well if he does have those adamantium mircoscopic chains linking his bones then he can't we can assume his skeletal structure is virtual unbreakable (particularly if his ligaments are also adamantium beta) which seems to be indicated by the times he's had his flesh stripped from one of his arms etc and his bones have remained in place. So dislocating any bone truly would appear to be impossible though it might still be possible to move/twist his neck vertebrae enough to snap the spinal cord. Whether that would kill him or just take him done for a bit I'm unsure, it probably might not kill him outright though and I assume he would heal.

In the Wolverine vs X-Men arc recently in the Wolverine book Cyke had a plan to kill Logan (assume he got out of control) that involved Maggie stripping him of his adamantium, and then having Namor rip his head off.

616 Logan with adamantium has not been dismembered ever.

I've only seen it in a What If? which doesn't count for much. It was an older What If Hulk Killed Wolverine? (the cover is shiny and pretty neat).

Characters alternates weren't displayed as only more or less than their 616 counterparts. In the intro Hulk becomes enraged to the point he

punches a vertebrae from the Wolverine's spine near the neck lose and out his mouth. As a What If? take from it what I will but I always found

the scenario plausible personally.

Didn't Sentry dent the claws against Wolverines 'bones' and easily knocked him out thanks to that move?
Besides that sorry for bumping, but here is an interesting scan! 
 
#44 Posted by God_Spawn (37710 posts) - - Show Bio

@Chibio: Sentry was squeezing the blades together which pushes them together inside his hand which is damaging the tendons in his hands, but he didn't tear the claws out or bend them at least that's from what I remember.

And I've seen that scan dozens of times, it doesn't prove anything and if you really think Wolverine can't heal from a snapped neck. I don't know what to tell you.

I already said before that I believe that Wolverine could heal back from a broken neck, since the deadly thing about it are the destroyed nerves and he could regenerate them very quickly.
It still does not change the fact that Wolverine himself says that the only way to kill him would be to break his neck. Of course there are other ways like cutting his head off =D
But yeah, I don't know either. Wolverine is not immortal, don't forget that. Deadpool wouldn't have any problems with his neck being badly broken, but if Wolverine actually dies of for good, he should also stay dead.
