Are you a real person?

Wolverine's are members of the weasel famil, they're not cats.

But seriously, are you for real?

I heard from my big brother that wolverine can regenerate wounds. Is this true? I don't believe him. Duh! wolverine is based on an animal, a wolverine cat, and wolverines don't regenerate.

How much can wolverine regenerate? What's the baddest wound you've seen him recover from?

#7 Posted by MShades (75 posts) - - Show Bio

I think we're still waiting to see how he recovers from being pulled apart like a piece of taffy by Ultimate Hulk....

#8 Posted by The Voidwalker (272 posts) - - Show Bio

He's been reduced to a single drop of blood and completely regenerated before.

Here's a link of him fighting Nitro.

Wolv gets back up a bit later and beats him senseless.

Yeah, you're right. I just chastised someone for being rude. Apologies. I don't think they are going to continue the Wolverine vs. Hulk thing, i've only seen one issue in like nine months.

Wow! a drop a blood. I don't think I like him anymore. Same reason I said I did not like doctor doom, that to powerful and seems like just a lame idea some writer slapped on him..

#16 Posted by Ebony Bishop (748 posts) - - Show Bio

Sadly, the drop of blood was NOT from a What If?, but an in continuity Wolverine Civil War tie in. I believe it was recent, as in #47.

I agree that this translates into bad writing. I want my Wolverine to heal fast, but not that fast. He was up and on Nitro within minutes after being vaporized to the skeleton. I think that devalues Logan's heroism. Watching him jump into situations where he's going to get hurt bad, and have to heal over time painfully, made him more interesting and heroic. He came close to dying in the old days, which is what he needs to maintain his heroic status.

There's a reason why Deadpool was not as heroic as Wolverine -- he could regenerate a limb in minutes, so he didn't have to be afraid of anyone. I remember a sequence I loved in "Fall of the Mutants" where Wolverine gets decimated by lasers and has to just lie there, helpless, until someone helps him up and to safety.

Far more compelling reading.

The drop of blood was separate from the Nitro/skeleton thing. Totally agree though.

#18 Posted by Ebony Bishop (748 posts) - - Show Bio

You're right...drop of blood was from X-Men, when they fought...god, I don't remember his name, but it was the one where the villain convinced the X-Men to retreat into their dreams -- Storm ran off with Yukio, Dazzler became a bag-lady...and Wolverine decided to fight him.

It was over a crystal, and Wolverine was killed by this Sabretooth look-alike, and when a drop of Wolvie's blood hit the crystal, it supercharged his healing factor, and he regrew his whole body from it.

Damn, I wish I could remember when it happened. All I remember is the awesome Alan Davis art, and that Captain Britain guest starred.

#19 Posted by Buckshot (18678 posts) - - Show Bio

I had never actually read that comic. I'd heard of the drop of blood thing and kind of accepted it, but never really thought about it. The way you're saying it, it was the crystal that made him regrow, not just Wolverine's own healing factor. That makes more sense.

Heh, I read my earlier post, yeah the drop of blood thing and the fight with Nitro were two completely seperate instances, I shouldv'e worded that better. My bad.

(Bear with me, first time posting an image in here with Markdown)

I found the comic I was talking about -- and the exact page of the blood drop.

A really cool idea. I think we need more believably powered heroes, and insanely powerful but sloppy villains!

#22 Posted by Fourpower (R.I.P) (2021 posts) - - Show Bio

I guess the only way to kill him is to obliterate his entire body. Wow.

#23 Posted by The Voidwalker (272 posts) - - Show Bio

I've always wondered if anyone has tried to throw him into an active volcano. If they throw him in the dead center it would be pretty hard for him get out of that situation.

#24 Posted by Fourpower (R.I.P) (2021 posts) - - Show Bio

That would burn every cell in his body, even his brain, and leave only a charred metal skeleton. Being popular won't do everything.

who need heroism when you have kick ass swords,

Could wolverine actually lose a limb or would it have to be ripped off, i dont remeber him getting his arm chopped off or anything.

I admit that wolverine is better even though my fan boy attitude is yelling at me. (Forgive me Wade)

#26 Posted by fesak (6981 posts) - - Show Bio

It was stated before that his brain needed to be intact for him to

regenerate, but i guess that's no longer the case.

I just pretend that

the regenerate from a skeleton in Wolverine 43 never happened, besides

he regenerated from a burning skeleton in minutes, and in the issue

after he took hours heal after getting punched in

the face by Namor.

He should be really easy to drown if you think about it, that skeleton

must weigh a ton.

I never thought of that. How does he run around and be so agile? It must be like having 100 pounds strapped to your back. And what's the deal with Deadpool? He's cool, but he's not ALL THAT.

Marvel counters that by a) claiming he has superhuman strength like Captain America, and b) saying that Adamantium is "an extremely light metal for it's strength".

Since I'm pretty sure they invented it for Wolverine (anyone know for sure?) they made it as convenient as possible to his abilities.

#31 Posted by Fourpower (R.I.P) (2021 posts) - - Show Bio

Wolverine doesn't have superhuman strength, does he?

#32 Posted by fesak (6981 posts) - - Show Bio

Wolverine doesn't have super-strenght and adamantium was introduced long before him in Avengers.

How could Wolverine logically NOT have superhuman strength? His muscles regrow every time he tears them, which should, in effect, make him a miniature body builder. There are no limitations on weight with his bones as the are unbreakable.

If memory serves (please, anyone who still owns one, please confirm), the Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe lists Wolverine's strength as being able to lift 800 lbs.

I think that qualifies as "super strength".

But thanks for the info on Adamantium.

#34 Posted by G-Man (18889 posts) - - Show Bio

That does sound familiar. I think he was listed at being able to life 800 lbs but not more than 2 tons.

#35 Posted by Fourpower (R.I.P) (2021 posts) - - Show Bio

There are real men who can bench 1000. It's not super unless it's at least 3 tons.

#36 Posted by G-Man (18889 posts) - - Show Bio

Well he's a 5'3'' guy that is listed as being able to lift between 800 and 2 tons...

That page previously posted doesn't talk about regeneration at all. Was there something left out? I've read X-Men and Wolverine for years and have never come across anything in the normal Marvel continuum showing him regenerating fully from a single drop of blood. That's crazy talk.

In reading X-Men and Wolverine it's obvious that his healing factor has actual limits. When Magneto tore the Adamantium from his body Logan reverted to a more primal state and his healing factor was in a funk for quite a while as his system attempted to recover.

When he fought Nitro he was burned down to the bone, that's about as extreme as I've seen his regeneration work so far.

It's nice that wolverine has adamantium laced bones again since it makes his regeneration ALOT easier in that no enemy can easily cut limbs off or cut him in half. I'm guessing it would take a bit of time to regenerate an arm or low half of the body etc...

Wolverine in the Ultimate Universe and his battle with Ultimate Hulk happened in an alternate universe, and although that world isn't any less significant than the 'usual' Marvel Universe, you have to admit there are alot of differences in characters, events, and powers.

One thing that always bothered me was how much his healing factor was limited in X-Men movies. I remember one scene where he gets a bullet in the head and collapses to the ground for a minute while regenerating. While this may be impressive to the theater audience, I was disappointed as a Wolverine fan because I knew that in the comics a bullet would have just bounced off his adamantium skull or lodged in the skin outside it....never causing him to be out of commission for so long.

#40 Posted by Fourpower (R.I.P) (2021 posts) - - Show Bio

Actually, the drop of blood thing doesn't really count, as it landed on a crystal that augmented his healing ability. Nitro's blast is the worst injury Wolverine has survived in normal continuity without help.

#41 Posted by Christy Lovell (15 posts) - - Show Bio

I can't believe tyhat you didn't know that! Iknew that when I first saw X:Men the movie! OMG!!!

#42 Posted by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (84704 posts) - - Show Bio

You wanna know how you beat Wolerine? You punch him,no serious. In one of the civil war tie-ins,Nitro burned him to the bone nothing left but a skeleton. He came back fully recovered in two minutes. But when he got in a fight with Namor,he got hit with an upper cut and was knocked out for a couple hours. So burn to the bone no. Left hook yes.

#43 Posted by Christy Lovell (15 posts) - - Show Bio

WOW! I didn't Know that! It's pretty cool in one way, but bad in another. How did you find that out, on the internet, by comic books, or some other source? Really! I have to know!

#44 Posted by GL Bertron (3708 posts) - - Show Bio

Read any Wolverine comic, especially the ones where he fights Sabertooth. Wolverine gets tore apart and ends up healing and carrying on.

As for he left hook, it's issue #43 of the current wolverine series that is tied into Civil War. For a guy with a metal skeleton he sure has a glass jaw/skull where ever he was hit. It looked like the back of the head to me, but that has been a few monthes.

#45 Posted by Fourpower (R.I.P) (2021 posts) - - Show Bio

That healing ability has always been one of the coolest things about him. The ability to get shot and laugh. I wish I could do that.

#46 Posted by GL Bertron (3708 posts) - - Show Bio

It would probably be more of a get shot, fall over writhing in pain, force yourself to cut bullet out, repeat step 2, get up, laugh nervously, hope there aren't anymore bullets.
