Wolverine was sort of the test bed page while building the site out. It's fitting that he get's one of the first posts.
Our pal wolverine...
There seems to be alot of variation on the extent of any character's powers, depending on who is writing them in the issue in question.
I think this makes sense. Marvel has released source books, encyclopedias, and trading cards outlining, categorizing, and comparing the super-powers of many heroes; but to some extent I think these are irrelevant. In general it is nice to have a summary of a character's powers but at times I think the editors just go too far in their attempt to "beef up" the said hero in an attempt to make readers happy.
I mean have you ever honestly seen any issues in Marvel comics that allude to the fact that Wolverine can lift between 800 lbs and 2 tons? That is just a load of crap in my opinion.
Keeping the continuity together for the Marvel Universe is not an exact science and I'd have to liken it to keeping the Star Wars or Star Trek continuity together with all the books, comics, games, movies, tv shows, and cartoons that have been released over the years.
I think the point is to just enjoy the characters.....not squabble over the minute details of their lives like we've been doing in the "regeneration" topic string on this forum.
