Agreed, and I pointed it out in the versus thread where he tried to pass them off, but he shouldn't get away with it here, either.
Not knocked out, only lasted due to scrambling of mindcontrol.
Very incomplete scans, he took a ton of damage, including a blast from Rachel Phoenix, a plane crash, a log to the head from Kitty, and a blast from Cyclops, almost all of it taking place at near freezing temperatures.
Very, very early in his life, no longer applies to current Wolverine.
Not knocked out, just temporarily incapacitated. On the next page, he gets up, and traps him faster than Ock can react to, even while utilizing his spider sense.
Early version of the character, has developed a much stronger healing factor over the years.
Very incomplete scan, only took place after he was blasted to a skeleton, and had an extended fight with a super strong Atlantean Royal Guard.
To paraphrase you, 'thats one way to look at it'.
Stilt said i posted an example of Wolvie at his worst, and highly disagreed. That was Wolvie at his norm, prior to his many power ups, which guys like stilt dont recall, and guys like you seem to dislike/try to disregard.
I mean, look at your crap reasoning to other posted scans:
Just because you dont like it, doesnt mean it doesnt apply.
You're more childish than than stilt.
You say 'dont pretend time stopped in 1982', yet act like those early stories dont apply because they dont depict a power level you like.
What a maroon.
Its always very telling (and sad, so SO sad) when the only way someone likes a character is if that character's invincible.
Thankfully, i barely ever see you post, and dont intend to return to this particular thread, so you can keep fantasizing over a Wolvie that sprung full blown at the highest of power levels and who's defining stories 'no longer apply' without me making fun of you for it.
When he said that, he was referring to character abilities. The fact is, historically, that's a very weak version of Wolverine, before he had even completed his initial development, let alone all the changes he's been through since. And lol at you acting like Stilt's ignorant, he's one of the world's most knowledgeable Wolverine fans, which is why he doesn't need your skewed history lessons.
Hey, if that's your favorite version of Wolverine, rock on, I'm not taking that away from you. However, unless otherwise stated, we aren't using 1982 Wolverine in these threads, we're using the character who has gone through tons of growth in the years since, so the limits he used to have when he was just starting out don't apply anymore, even if the events of those comics still inform his character.
Lol, like you know anything about my fandom. For the record, it's Wolverine's life of failure, and his refusal to stop believing he can be more despite those failures, that is my single favorite aspect of his character. And the 1982 Wolverine mini series is etched as either my all-time #1 or #2, with Weapon X pretty much tied with it as my favorite Wolverine stories.
That being said, while it stands as his single most character defining comic, he is no longer limited to the abilities he displayed back then. Nor should he be, imo, though you are welcome to yours, so long as you acknowledge that it's your preference, not the characters actual state.
Superior Spider-Ock did knock Wolverine out. Not for long but it was a clear cut KO. He was uncouncious long enough for SpOck to talk to the other x-men and examine the giant spiders they were fighting. Wolverine comes to after the giant spiders are down and grabs SpOck from behind while he's distracted. While it is true that some of the scans in this thread need context (like the one with DD for example) there's no reason to downplay every scan posted.
