comment Can She-Hulk's hair be cut?
I'd assume the needle that was used on the Hulk is adamantium.

comment Bane: His age and his physique in The Dark Knight Rises
I took his physique to also be of someone who is older. Tom Hardy is muscular, but also toned. Bane was not toned at all. he had the body of a man who had muscle mass, but also fat (not excessive, but there was fat) as well. Also, I felt it apparent that he so easily took on Batman (round 1) because of his League of Shadows training.

comment Is Vader sincere with Luke in ESB?
Regarding EU: However, George Lucas has viewed it as a separate canon from his movie series.

comment Why four lights?
Agreed with @Izkata, Picard absolutely admits to Troi at the end of the episode that he believes he saw five lights.

comment How could Darth Vader be a Transformer?
@Wikis I'm not sure where G1 was tied with Beast Wars (I didn't follow), but based on BBlake comment, the G1 comic series is set in Earth-616, so it's more prevalent. I've updated the answer to reflect that without taking away the gist that it would be an alternate universe.

comment How could Darth Vader be a Transformer?
@BBlake The four issue limited series had Spider-Man in it, so it stands to reason that the Transformers (at least in the Marvel comics adaptation) exist on Earth-616. Additionally, the Marvel cross-over still dealt with that reality, so if it is Earth-616 (where alternate realities are rampant), then it stands to reason it's more prevalent than I implied. I've updated the answer, as this fact doesn't change the core fact that it would be an alternate universe.

@Gilles You of course mean Robot Santa.

comment Why didn't the Bifrost Bridge connect to Scandinavia?
It was also probably partially affected by the fact that in the current Marvel comics universe, Asgard is actually in the American midwest (Broxton, Oklahoma to be exact) and the writers of "Thor" took some cue from this.

comment How did Wolverine get his sharp claws?
They probably took from Wolverine's claws in the comics after Magneto ripped the adamantium from his bones in X-Men #25; for almost five years after, his claws had a rough appearance (see the bottom for an image, or do a Google image search for "wolverine bone claws")

comment What was the thing revealed at the end of the Thor movie?
Also remember that in the retcon for the Beyonder, it's been determined that the Beyonder was an incomplete Cosmic Cube, and look at what he did.

comment How does Captain America's shield work?
It should be noted that others with great dexterity have also been able to wield the shield in this manner, examples being Bucky, Daredevil, and Hawkeye. When Sharon Carter (a highly trained S.H.I.E.L.D. operative in her own right) tries to use it (in the recently released "Captain America" series by Ed Brubaker), she tries to ricochet the shield much in the way that Captain America does, only to have it lodged in a building nowhere near him (although they play it to certainly look like it will get to him).

comment How does Captain America's shield work?
After "Fear Itself" Odin recalled the weapons. The dwarves that Stark worked with fixed the shield, but I don't know that uru was used in fixing it (it would give the shield an enchantment, wouldn't it?).

comment How do the mutant levels correlate with the mutant classifications?
For completion, you might want to consider issue 13 of Future Foundation. In it, a Celestial identifies Franklin Richards as having "beyond Omega level power". So there is some concept of a level above Omega. I assume that this transcends any label applied to mutants, and instead applies to higher-order beings such as Galactus, Eternity, Death, etc.

comment How do the mutant levels correlate with the mutant classifications?
Not to complicate things, but in Future Foundation #13 a Celestial classifies Franklin Richards as having "beyond Omega level power", so something beyond Omega level exists, and Franklin is it.
