Some mutants are immortal, like Apocalypse living for thousands of years even before enhancing himself with tech
Some immortal mutants need to absorb energy of some kind to remain young, like Selene
Some mutants age very slowly, like Wolverine

I wonder if Mystique is immortal, she is around Logan`s age maybe older.

I think Mystique just ages slow like Logan, they've pretty much explained that her shape-shifting greatly retards her aging.

Why are Rogue and Strong Guy on this list?

And Rockslide is a psionic entity.....so he could be considered immortal....unless his energy just fades for some reason and he ceases to exist.

@Pr He's never been shown to have to turn back to normal. He stayed metal about a week before until he willingly changed back. Although there's no reason to think his aging stops while he's transformed.

mystique is not quite as old as wolverine, but she pretty closes. She may not age it, never been really stated either way.

Wolverine may not age at all. To be honest he yet to age at all in past 100 years. I don't believe he does age.

I think it's been stated that every time she uses her shape-shifting to change form her cells get rejuvenated, meaning she's potentially biologically immortal.

And while I don't know if she's as old as Wolverine I know she's over 100. She was alive during the Victorian era IIRC.

Obviously Wolverine ages. He's aged since he developed his powers, and he talks about aging, he's never just said I don't age anymore.

Some mutants live a shorter time, some a longer. It varies based on powers and other factors.

I wonder why Wolvie didn`t appear to have aged in Here comes tomorrow (150 years into the future). Most future "what ifs" and timelines depict him with varying older apperances.

No idea, but like you said, in just about every other future incarnation, it's obvious he's aged. Old Man Logan, that thing with the half human/half robot things....where they melted him with acid, etc...

If Logan didn't age at all, he would be stuck at 13 or so when his X gene activated. He must have aged some to get to the point that he's at now

Not neccecarily, Selene and Apocalypse both grew to full adulthood before ageing halted.

Logan does appear to age, but is it possible that he would age slower without adamantium?

actaully in most of the closest alternate realities Logan does not age.

He did not age in old man Logan, that was from stress. In fantastic Force which is the same reality, wolveirne 500 years in the future looks like he always does and the gray vanished.

Also even in age of the future past, in the mini his gray is gone again many years after the event. People assume gray = old, but in fact it a sign of stress.

He has not aged since hitting his prime in fact that disprove your point. The fact he aged normally untill his prime which then stop suggests his age has been halted permently. Because if he in facted aged he would have remained aging at the same rate.

Logan yet to mention that he body gotten older and he has yet to age since hitting his prime. He has question himself as well as others if he in fact immortal.

why would his healing factor attack the hormones that activate during puberty? they're not harmful and they're natural.

Umm, wouldn`t a strong healing factor prevent hair going gray because of stress? Has his hair gone gray like this before?

I guess it is not impossible that Wolvie is immortal and only seems to age when "stressed", but it sounds like a stretch to say the least. On the other hand it would add another layer of meaning to Logan "being what Romulus wants to be". Shrug, I doubt the various writers had the same thing in mind anyway.

No really, becuase it not becoming anything less, it simply changing colors. If one is in constant state of stress it remain.




He not aging. Simply becuase your hair grey does not make you older. I know friggin 18 year old kids who had gray hair.

Not really a stretch at all. We know for a fact that Wolverine from old man Logan lives another 500 years, we know his hair goes back to normal. We know he has not age at all.

Then in days of the future past the original one had him gray hair (but remember back then Logan barly even had a healing factor at the time) this was reconnted in Wolverine weapon x days of the future past which happens several years later maybe even a decade later and Wolverine is as young as ever.


People are assuming that he ages because of what again? alternate realities? except the three closest realities to 616 have him not aging, so I think it a stretch to say the least that he does age.
