How would he function without his powers?

#1 Edited by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

If Wolverine didn't have his adamantium skeleton, claws, healing factor, or animal like senses, how do you think he would cope? 
 
I'd like to think he'd carry around a katana and firearms if he wanted to do damage to any of his enemies.  
 
EDIT: I think some people are misunderstanding me. I mean that in today's Marvel Universe, if he were to loose his healing factor, adamantium skeleton, claws, and animal like senses, but still still look and feel like he does, how would he do?

I think he'd be a lot like the punisher.

He would use swords, knives and at least 1 firearm. I'm pretty sure though that after all of the training he has been though he would still be a dangerous threat. 
Although Wolverine went through a bad time when he lost his adamantium skeleton I don't think he would want to commit suicide or anything.

Without his healing factor he'd die within a couple of days, by either getting stabbed or shot.

He would age to his actual age (meaning he die since he is very old), if not I 'd guess he'd use all the skills he has earned over the time I mean he is very skilled . Such as he is  Advanced Cover Ops Expert, Master Martial Artist(That is just great.),  Skilled Mechanic.

His style of fighting would likely lead to him dying.

 Wolverine's proficient in guns and swords and is a superb h2h fighter, one of the best fighters in Marvel. He would be fine actually.

He would've died a little over a century ago

If anything the adamantium poisoning would've killed him.

Read the OP please, people. I think you're misunderstanding the question.

as usual haters be mouthing off...... my answer he'd rethink hes strategy of fighting, back to relying on fighting skills and planning. he'd still kick ass. he's lost his powers before and survived just fine. for more than 2 dozen issues

If he wasn't born with powers - he would've died in a war a looong time ago and that would've been the end of that. 
If he lost his powers + adamantium currently - he'd likely have to go into hiding to avoid getting butchered by one of his many enemies. Or he'd have to be a lot more subtle on his crime fighting strategies.

Problem here is Wolverine tends to suck when it comes to tactics, strategy, planning, and leadership compared to someone like the Punisher. I see wolverine getting killed very easily and quickly if he lost his metal bones and all of his powers. Logan would not be near the same level as someone like Frank Castle if he was normal.

Logan is an expert martial artist and has shown it in the past. Without the claws, healing factor, and animal like senses, he'd still be a huge threat when in terms of hand to hand combat, but would prove ineffective in the long run when fighting crime.
