I have read the entire thread and I have to say that because of respins over the years and as someone mention before, the appeasement of the wolverine fans, they have lost touch with reality in a fictional reality. I think that I can allow for skin, muscle and tissue to regen, but I have to stop at bone. I don't know what makes bones grow with us as we get older, but I do know that you can come back 1000 years later and all the tissue and such are gone...the bone is still there. Loose the bone, loose the regen. I would say stump in that case.
A thought...if the mutant gene is stored in the brain, then all you would have to do to him is take his brain and store it. Take his body and store that. Put the two together say 1000 years later and see if he were to regen then. If the Marvel guys can go WAYYYY to far, so can I.
BTW...I am just old school. What is this A O A that i read in the post?
actaully his healign fatcor is in his soul and every single cell. Also he can gorw back limb's and has been stated as such. He also has gorwn his head, back and has also grown his claws back before as well.
OK...now I do hope that you see how totally ridiculous that is don't you.
Grow back your HEAD???
And grow back something that isn't grown in the first place??? Claws??? that is the most idiotic thing that I have heard of. I have always had trouble with the explanation of a hero across multiple platforms, because they start trying to one up each other or outright refuse to acknowledge each others additions.
We know that wolverine was picked primarily because of his healing ability. This allowed the grafting of the metal to his skeleton. I was just thinking of a couple of things as I read the replies. Some may remember an issue of one of the spiderman comics in which Spidey gets pissed at Doc Oct because he hurts the Black Cat. Spidey Rips the arms out of Doc and throws them away. That reminded me of when Magneto levitates Wolverine in the movie. What if Mags just went nuts and ripped the metal out of wolverine sorta like the security guard in part 2.
The other thing that I thought about was video games and RPG board games. The limit to being able to regen is usually directly related to a persons system. If you think about it like HP (health points), as long as a person has HPs, he can regen...when those points get too low, he can't. So if this is the case, the load that was put on Wolvie would have had to make him collapse from exhaustion after the Phoenix' onslaught in the movie.
Oh BTW....the "cancellation kid" would have been the perfect defense against Phoenix. He would only need to get near her and her powers would be nullified. Then just stick her with one of those needles and problem solved.
His regeneration abillity can't be in his every cell, it's just stupid, what if for example would left 2 cells, and both of them would form Wolverine in adult form, so there would be 2 W. Well, why not tear wolverione into 1000000 cells so the world would be flooded with superheoes. By the way, that would mean that there are some written evidence in his cell about his age, so it would reproduce old Wolverine not the baby. And also, the brain is organ that controle his regeneration, or at least it should be, because Wolverine is a human, not just an ameboid structure being who can regenerate when he's cut in half....
why were people so confused about whether or not logan had bone claws originally?
he obviously had the necessary muscles to move them, i mean, you can't just put metal there and expect it to move by will

Actually in the beginning....before he's complete origin was told, he didnt have bone claws. Muscle tendons and ligaments were attached to the adamantium claws in his forearms. its shown in the weapons and vehicles handbook. but that info is like 20 years old and guess doesnt apply to nowadays. kind of cheesey.
Its all about story lines that sell the book. Marvel cant keep anything consistant with original marvel handbook facts, like 20 years ago. Everything gets bended around to sell an idea, even its far fetched.
