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). ...

The Muramasa Blade The Muramasa Blade (the second, made specifically for Wolverine - not the Black Blade) has been shown to effectively negate healing factors entirely. It has been used to It was described by Wolverine as "the only thing in the world that could put him down." At this point in time, Wolverine removed Daken's Muramasa-coated claws and ...

Adamantium's durability has less to do with weight than it does with resilience. Logan is 5'3" tall and without his adamantium weighs 195 lbs. With it, he weighs 300 lbs. His body has been reinforced but adds only 105 pounds of total weight. It is wrong to assume its indestructibility is related to weight. There are plenty of heavy metals (gold, lead) ...

Wolverine (4th series) #16 - Issue Date: November 2011 - Story Title: Wolverine Forever They’re WRONG. Every damn one of ‘em. ‘Cept Namor, I can’t swim worth a damn. Unknown comic issue: "You ever try staying afloat when your bones are laced with Adamantium? It's like swimming with an anvil on your back" Damn. Put me in water, and I'm vulnerable....

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 ...

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.

Rogue does get Wolverine's claws when she absorbs his abilities, but she gets his original bone claws, without the adamantium. The bone claws can be seen in X-Men Legacy #235 (2010), when Rogue absorbs the abilities of several X-Men.

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 ...

I've never come across a canon answer to this question -- at least, I never heard of any evil scientist attempting to clone Wolverine. But if we were to speculate, we can assume that the answer is related to how Wolverine recovers his memories and personality even after most of his brain is destroyed. I'm guessing that whatever part that receives the soul (...

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.

I'm not sure if this is canon, but I have found this drawing here. Is show a nice cut out technical drawing in the center that show some muscle attached to the claws to move them.

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.

Short answer: No. If he were standing directly near the epicenter of a nuclear weapon, his organic materials would be incinerated and destroyed, even as his skeleton survived relatively undamaged. His organic flesh having no special invulnerability to fire, radiation, radiated energy and blast over-pressure would certainly be destroyed completely at ground ...

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 ...

The Punisher blew up all of the other X-Men and most of the major X-Men villains in a giant nuclear explosion on the moon. He then attacked Wolverine whilst he was drunk from drowning his sorrows after losing most of his friends. During their fight he stabbed Wolverine in the throat with a knife and in the chest with Wolverine's own claws and threw him into ...

An answer I hate to give: It depends on the writer. (See the end of my post) He should be able to. Or, at least, the adamantium won't keep him from swimming. It will just make it harder. From the Marvel Wiki entry on Wolverine: Weight: 195 lbs (89 kg) (without Adamantium skeleton) 300 lbs. (136.1 kg) (with Adamantium skeleton). An extra 105 lbs is ...


31

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 ...


31

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 ...

Whilst still calcified, teeth are not bone in the sense that his skeleton is. They grow and change in a different way. It's also possible when his healing factor adapted to the infusion of adamantium it forced the metal out of his teeth. Furthermore, as HNL points out, when the adamantium was first injected, it was only into his bones, not into his teeth. I ...

I remembered this comic after mulling over this discussion. Here is a summary from comics.ign.com: In Brian K. Vaughan's mini-series Logan, the titular hero is a prisoner of the Japanese. He escapes along with a fellow prisoner and finds solace and love in a local girl. Unfortunately, the girl's hut happened to be in Hiroshima, and thus Wolverine ...

The Weapons Plus program deals with various experiments - mostly genetic in nature. While adamantium has figured into some of the experiments, it is not a primary component.

The only surefire way would have to be complete instantaneous obliteration to remove the possibility of any cellular regeneration. That said, Professor Xavier compiled a set of failsafes called "The Xavier Protocols" detailing how to defeat the X-Men in the chance that any of them became a threat. As per Wikipedia: It has been stated in the Xavier ...

To answer this, we'd need a couple of experiments: Cut him in half and see which half regenerates Cut him into more than two pieces of the same size/weight and see which regenerates Burn him until he stops regenerating In one comic, he was burned to ashes using Napalm, so even living tissue in pockets in the andamantium would have been cooked, so the last ...


27

Well, I don't have direct backup from the comic, but as I recall, his bones weren't so much covered, as partially permeated. That being the case, it would have interfered with red blood cell genesis, but not completely stopped it. (And, in fact, we know that the adamantium DID interfere with his healing, just not completely; what we may not know is what ...
