Excalibur #58 (1992) fits the bill, your villain being Alchemy. From ComicVine: Trouble on both sides! With both the Crazy Gang and the trolls that kidnapped Alchemy on the loose, can even the combined strength of Excalibur and the X-Men come out on top? As revealed in the previous issue, Alchemy was in with the trolls who used his mother as leverage ...

Wolverine remembered due to a loophole. Scarlet Witch's altering of the world wasn't solely to create a world where mutants rule, but also, the Scarlet Witch gave many of the X-Men and New Avengers their "heart's desire" (perhaps to keep them content enough to not try to undo things, similar to what was done in a recent Agents of SHIELD storyline on TV). ...

TL;DR: The claws are a part of his natural physiology. They're housed within his bones and likely connected to him/controlled by ligaments and tendons, and never "eject". First, let's go over historical Wolverine. Bonus reading: How exactly do Wolverine's claws come out? Up until the 90's, everyone (including Wolverine) believed that his claws had ...

They didn't think she was a mutant, they thought she was mute. The conversation went like this: WILL How long’s your girl been that way? (off Logan’s look) Mute. LOGAN Since... well.. the beginning. -Mangold, J. (Writer, Director), Green, M. (Writer) and Frank, S. (Writer). Logan. Final Shooting Draft Screenplay. August 2016. because Laura ...

This is the comic you're referring to; Excalibur Vol 1 #58. Wolverine has his claws turned (temporarily) into rubber by Alchemy at the urging of a troll.

Wolverine was shot in the head and he is knocked out, but to me it clearly looks like the bullet is sitting in his head in the video in your question. As his skin heals, the bullet pops out. (Valorum's answer confirms this with a quote from the novelization.) So the bullet does not look like it passed through his Adamantium-bonded skull. And if it had, and ...

He's old and is being poisoned by his Adamantium implants The film Logan has been created in such a way that it doesn't necessarily need to be explained in details. The writers and producers seem to feel that it works better this way. Logan is now not healing the same as he used to, and that's just the way it is. Explanations Sustained Long-Term ...

Director James Mangold answered this in an interview with Empire Online. In this XCU version, Logan's healing factor abilities have altered over time. While they still heal him, they no longer heal him perfectly, leaving scars. “One of the things we all thought about as we worked on this film is, well, we don’t want to rebuild everything. We want to have ...

Read the first couple paragraphs here. TL;DR: The bullet did not penetrate the adamantium layer, he's just been hit in the skull by a lump of metal traveling at probably something over 1,000 feet per second, which is why he got knocked out which seems the most plausible explanation. The bullet was just embedded in the flesh that's around his skull.

He was born as James Howlett, but he adopted the nickname 'Logan' to keep his identity secret. (Logan was the last name of his groundskeeper). Rose was the one who gave him the name. (Jemas, Bill, Quesada, Joe, Jenkins, Paul (w). Origin (2001–2002), Marvel Comics) From marvel.com: Born the second son of wealthy landowners John and Elizabeth Howlett in ...

All the time. Seriously. Cap and Wolverine are both heroes, but have wildly different worldviews. Unfortunately, they've fought so often, and usually with such a narrow margin if "who won", that it's really impossible to call either one a clearly superior fighter. This blog goes over some stats and historical battles between the two. They note that of the ...

Well as per Marvel's Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk comic book series, when Wolverine is hired to kill Hulk (who is in Tibet), Hulk tears Wolverine in half (thats right). He throws the legs 4 miles up the mountain. Even with this amount of huge physical damage Wolverine is still alive and using his keen senses finds his missing body parts. He does so by ...

Because when he travels back to the 1970s, he's not physically travelling in time, he's being mentally projected into his former self and in 1973 he didn't have an adamantium skeleton yet. You can see from the image below (immediately after he gets out of bed) that his claws are just bone. His weight would therefore be around 175lbs not the 300lbs he weighs ...

In Old Man Logan (which is kind of a What-If? story, although — thanks @phantom42! — is set on Earth-807128), Wolverine So if we take that as canon, yup, Wolverine can beat the Hulk.

There are two ways to order Wolverine's appearances. Release order X-Men (2000) - His first on-screen appearance X-2: X-Men United (2003) - Wolverine encounters Stryker, but has only vague memories about their previous dealings X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) - X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) - This shows Wolverine's discovery of his powers, working with ...

No. Wolverine cannot get cavities. His regenerative powers protect him from getting any kind of general diseases including tooth decay. For the record, teeth are not technically bones, so they would have been immune to the process used to cover his skeleton with adamantium. Tooth enamel is one of the four major tissues that make up the tooth in humans and ...

Chris Claremont started it all in the original four-part Wolverine limited series from September to December of 1982 in which Wolverine's catchphrase, "I'm the best there is at what I do, but what I do best isn't very nice," was debuted. This catchphrase, which has been repeated over and over again throughout the years, alludes to maiming, killing or ...

I’m not entirely clear whether you’re asking how Hulk became villainous in the universe of Old Man Logan, or why Millar, out-of-universe, chose to make this traditionally heroic character villainous. In-universe, nothing is confirmed, in keeping with the post-apocalyptic setting. Banner mentions rumours that radiation sickness sent him insane — if true, ...

No one knows exactly for sure. In the comics story Origin, James Howlett is born sometime between 1886 and 1897. There is no record of Wolverine fighting in the American Civil War in the Earth-616 universe. In the movies, however, James Howlett was born earlier within the same century. X-Men Origins: Wolverine shows James and Victor fighting in multiple ...

Mutant Gene Suppression Typically, anything that is sweetened artificially (certain sweet ciders, sweetened ales, alcopops, etc.) will use HFCS as it's cheap and easy. Notably, during the film, Logan drinks fireball whisky, which does contain sweeteners (I'd also like to see a source that states that Logan doesn't drink cocktails, as that seems like ...

It should be clarified that there are at least three grades of adamantium in the comics. Firstly, there's proto-adamantium. This alloy was created by US Government metallurgist, Myron MacLain during World War II, and was bonded with Wakandan vibranium to create Captain America's shield. MacLain never managed to reproduce this metal though, so it only exists ...

Wolverine's claws were cut off by the Silver Samurai during the climactic fight scene of The Wolverine (2013), so no, they're not invulnerable. They regrew, but only as bone.


19

This is a failure of canon and writing regarding the issue of indestructible metals. Marvel has made little effort to describe Adamantium in any given detail and it defies the rules that most metals use regarding taking damage or being destroyed. TLDR Given the premise that the Silver Samurai was supposedly capable of generating a tachyon field (read that ...

They are half brothers sharing a father In the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine you see that Wolverine is originally known as James Howlett. He sees his "father" (John Howlett) being killed by Thomas Logan, a man who works as a groundskeeper on his John Howlett's estate. James then extrudes his bone claws for the first time and kills Thomas Logan, who ...

Johnny Cash - Hurt1 Released in 2002 for his album American IV: The Man Comes Around. Originally written and performed by Nine Inch Nails. Director James Mangold did an interview with Empire magazine, where he explained his choice of music as "standing out": Obviously I have a connection and a fondness for Johnny Cash, and his tone and his message ...

Yes, within the Marvel comics universe, comic books exist for many of the major characters. Some, like the Fantastic Four, "authorize" Marvel (the company) to do stories loosely based on their adventures (and the in-universe Captain America comics were, for a time, actually drawn by Steve Rogers), but for characters like the X-Men and Spidey, who are less ...

No - if Wolverine's wrist was bent, the claws would just emerge from the wrist instead. In fact, this very thing occurs in Wolverines #11 (2015). In a flashback, it is revealed that a heavily-intoxicated Wolverine once popped his claws through his wrists by accident: Years before that, however, in the 1995 "Age of Apocalypse" arc we saw a version of ...

There's no mention of this fear of flying in the comics, the film scripts, the film's novelisations or the various graphic novelisations. As far as Wolverine's evident fear of flying is concerned, it seems that that was purely an invention of the actor Hugh Jackman. The 45-year-old Hollywood star admits he even incorporated a fear into his X-Men ...

First off, the movie is not based in any meaningful way on Old Man Logan. At best, the writers thought the title sounded cool, but other than Logan being old and going on a road trip, every significant detail about the movie and comics are different. In the movie, we never get proof that Xavier is the one responsible for the Westchester incident that But ...
