    Can I just say - Wolverine has many different "superpowers", his bone claws were covered in adamantium - a procedure only possible due to Wolverines ability to heal himself. He also has a feral sense of smell and hearing, increased agility, strength & stamina. His original claws were only able to cut through things like wood etc, but the adamantium is the reason he can cut through almost anything.

    Therefore, even without the claws - Wolverine is still the best superhero.

    I never understood Wolverine`s claws anyway. I mean, when the claws go in, wouldn`t that mean you wouldn`t be able to move your wrists or anything? It`d be like having a splint on your wrist.

    And how is Wolverine always cutting through metal? Just because his claws are made of the strongest metal ever, doesn`t mean he should be able to cut through a metal door that`s a foot thick. He`d need more strength than just an average joe who works out a lot to punch the claws through the metal and drag them through.

    God, the character has always bugged the crap out of me.

    The adamantium adds extra weight to his swipes, as well as the aforementioned added strength. Plus his blades are razor sharp and cant be blunted by anything other than Captain Americas shield (which is the metal adamantium was scientifically copied).

    Its like saying why can a razor cut through a coke can?

    schwabos: "Its like saying why can a razor cut through a coke can?"

    Yeah, but it`s not is it? A coke can is a completely thin piece of metal that can be pushed through with minimal effort. Where as a foot thick steel door would be a bit more difficult, I would think, no matter how "sharp" the metal was, you`d still need the strength in the arm to push it through. But, I digress, it`s a comic book, it`s not supposed to make sense. Let`s just say "It`s magic".

    "He also has a feral sense of smell and hearing, increased agility, strength & stamina."

    "...increased... strength...."

    Logan can push his muscles past the boundaries of normal humans, therefore giving him... wait for it... increased strength. And the adamntium adds weight to his increased strength, which creates further increased momentum.

    But you`re right - its fictional. Just extremely interesting and cool.

    Holy sh*te I was actually crying while watching this. I found it that funny. And I can`t believe my friends are so lame I`ve had to explain to them that he was born with claws. Here comes the geek in me...If they chose the claws their whole skeletons should have been covered. Not just had claws implanted cause he already had them

    Saw that coming just from the title. Funny. But isn`t the adamantium artificial anyway? and the only reason it was given to wolverine is that he had healing? It`s not a mutant power.

    oh, and they should have taken the healing, went out and bet people no matter how hard they hit them with a baseball bat they cannot knock them out. then with the money they make from that get claws and keep doing it until they are basically weapon 11. for those of you that dont know what weapon 11 is, see wolverine tonight and you`ll know.

    I would have taken the healing, indeed. Of course if there were more options, blowing up people`s head with my mind would be nice. Or teleportation...

    OK. as a Wolverine freak, I must respond to a few incorrect assertions. Yes, the claws are bone, with adamantium BONDED to it. The bone claws were not replaced. At one point, Magneto strips Wolverine of all his adamantium, yet his bone claws remain. Secondly, Captain America`s shield is NOT adamantium, it`s vibranium. And Omega Red`s tentacles are carbonadium. Finally, RandyTheFool - ever tried to cut a sandwich with a really dull knife? Takes a lot of effort. You pick up a sharper knife, and the cutting is easier. You can see how having the sharpest knife in the world would allow some serious cutting ability, even through thick steel. Enhanced strength aside. OK, I`ve nerded out enough.

    I never said Captain Americas shield was made of adamantium. I said it was made of something harder than adamantium, which is what adamantium was based on when it was created. Thats the reason Captain Americas shield could blunt Wolverines claws. I might not have worded it correctly, but I figured it was as close as it needed to be. I didnt count on the most pedantic man in the world coming onto IAB... I also never said his claws were replaced with adamantium ones, his entire skeleton was fused with adamantium, which included his bone claws.

    First of all the claws aren`t a mutant power, they were put there by humans. Second, you can`t have the claws with out the healing!! They`d kill you!

    On a different not, THIS WAS SO HILARIOUS!! Kinda reminded me of smosh.
