Tell Cyclops I made him a convertible.

It's not just to remember your life-- --but your death, too. It's to remind me that's where I started. If I keep that in mind, that I did that, that I'll always regret it, maybe I can put some new values together, go forward. 'stead of runnin' away from the guilt of it.

As Old Man Logan[]


Born in the 1800s, Wolverine's past throughout his 100+ year life has been filled with love, misery, and death. Having been experimented on by the Weapon X program, which coated his bones in adamantium and nearly erased all of his memories, Wolverine has spent years trying to piece it all together. After fighting the Hulk, Wolverine decided to join the X-Men, where he battled for the dream that humans and mutants could co-exist in peace.

Berserker State[]



  • While his bones are covered in unbreakable metal; his organs, tendons, and ligaments (joints) are not
  • Wolverine's invincibility isn't perfect as it has exploitable weaknesses. [3]
    • Contrary to popular belief, Wolverine CANNOT regenerate from a drop of blood on his own. He was revived by a magical crystal (The Crystal of Ultimate Vision) and even then the event was non-canon.
    • Despite appearing invincible, Wolverine has died multiple times; [4]
      • Sentinel vaporized all his flesh, giving Wolverine nothing to regenerate from (Uncanny X-Men Vol. 1 #142 (1981))
        • Ultron killed Wolverine with a similar blast from his Encephalo Beam.
        • Nimrod (the perfect Sentinel) and other characters absurdly powerful energy blasts most likely can do this as well.
      • Had his heart ripped out by Horde (only for Wolverine to be revived by a magical crystal that came in contact with a drop of his blood) (Uncanny X-Men Vol. 1 Annual #11 (1987)).
      • Had his neck snapped by Hulk (What If? Vol. 2 #50 (1993)) (Noncanon)
      • Electrocuted by Punisher (Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe) (Noncanon)
      • Lightning from Perfect Storm (it should be noted that Wolverine was weakened from a previous duel against Magneto) (X-Men Forever Vol. 2 #1 (2009)
      • His healing factor can be removed by reality-warpers like Phoenix (New X-Men Vol. 1 #154 (2004))
      • His healing factor doesn't work if Wolverine is killed before he has time to heal (Wolverine Vol. 3 #20 (2004))
      • Shadowcat fused her hand into Wolverine's brain (What If: Wolverine - Enemy of the State #1) (Noncanon)
      • Magneto vaporized Wolverine's flesh after destroying his skeleton with his magnetic powers combined with Ironman's and Cyclops' beam attacks (Ultimatum (Ultimate Marvel))
      • Stabbed by a Wolverine Clone, as only adamantium can pierce adamantium (Age of Ultron #9 (2013))
      • Dr. Cornelius covered Wolverine in liquid adamantium. When it hardened, Wolverine was immobilized and theoretically suffocated.
      • In theory, died as was converted into a zombie by some bites given by Colonel America and Hawkeye (Marvel Zombies Dead Days)
      • Died by being beheaded by Deadpool with the carbonadium sword (Deadpool Kill Marvel Universe #3)
    • Healing factor halted (disabled) by Carbonadium, Murasama Blade, and Microverse virus
    • Killable by drowning, destroying all cells, destroying his brain (decapitation) and keeping head from the body [5]
      • Metal skeleton makes Wolverine sink in water: making him very vulnerable to drowning.
    • Adamantium can be destroyed under certain conditions
      • Adamantium can be morphed by magnetism.
        • Wolverine has lost to Magneto multiple times with very little effort.
      • Vibranium and other things that can destabilize the molecules of metals can destroy Adamantium.
      • Adamantium can't protect Wolverine from constant exposure to extremely high temperatures such as solar radiation from the center of the sun. If thrown into the sun; Wolverine's cells will never be able to regenerate.
      • Some depictions of Adamantium can be damaged or destroyed with enough force.
    • Wolverine ages slowly but can still age. When he is older, his healing factor slows. Wolverine can also die from old age.
      • His Adamantium skeleton poisons him. His healing-factor counters this: however in his old age it begins to do gradual damage to his health.
    • Although his healing factor can help him to recover from anything, he isn't able to regrow missing body parts. For example, if his legs are ripped from his body, he's not able to grow new ones. He can still reattach them, however.
  • Wolverine will be immobilized if his cells are killed as soon as they grow back. Deadpool did this to Wolverine's children by having a flamethrower burn them every time they attempted to regenerate. This method also has a chance of burning out the healing factor.
  • If Wolverine loses his healing factor, his adamantium will poison and kill him.
  • Drawing his claws is painful as it pierces through his skin.
    • Despite his healing factor, Wolverine feels pain just like a normal human; meaning his most gruesome mutilations temporarily stuns and overwhelms his pain receptors.
  • Claws cannot stab through very thick things; like Blob's gut.
  • Can still be knocked out sometimes [6].
  • Heightened hearing sometimes leaves him vulnerable. His sharp sense of sight means he can be blinded easily and it takes him a long while to recover.
  • He has no long-ranged weapons or abilities so he requires external help in taking down air-borne opponents as well as anyone who can manipulate his body from a safe distance.
  • Ultimate Universe depiction of Adamantium is destructible.
  • X-Men (Cinematic) Universe depiction of Adamantium can be slightly weakened by hot temperatures. While still powerful enough to resist a nuclear blast: hot Adamantium can be broken by colder Adamantium.
  • In an alternative universe, Hulk managed to tear out the left arm and in the process break one of its claws of the right arm (The Punisher vs Marvel Universe)
  • He tends to let anger cloud his thinking.
  • Every woman he loves dies (except Sara Pezzini, but this is in an alternate universe)
  • He was responsible for the death of all the X-Mem (in an alternate universe) (Old Man Logan)
  • Currently dead as of Death of Wolverine.




  • Ultimate Wolverine simply put has a more absurd healing factor yet a more frail skeleton. Death Battle officially stated that they ignored Ultimate Wolverine due to being non-canonical.
  • Wolverine is the third member of the X-Men to appear in Death Battle (The first was Rogue, the second was Beast).
  • He's the third combatant to be voiced by Xander Mobus, the first two being Lion-O and RoboCop, with the fourth being Agumon.
  • Wolverine is the third Marvel character to lose a Death Battle, the first two being Captain America and Beast. The next seven Marvel characters to lose a Death Battle are Quicksilver, The Hulk, Captain Marvel, Silver Samurai, Spider-Man 2099, Doctor Strange and Daredevil.
  • Wolverine is the ninth Marvel Comics character to appear in Death Battle. The first eight being  Rogue, Thor, Spider-Man, Captain America, Deadpool, Iron Man, Beast, and Doctor Doom, with the next six being Hawkeye, Quicksilver, The Hulk, Venom, Captain Marvel and Silver Samurai.
  • Wolverine's 3D model is from the Deadpool video game.
  • According to Death Battle Live, Xander's Wolverine voice was influenced by Cal Dodd's interpretation from the 90s cartoon. Like Deadpool, the fight also had some dialogue from Wolverine's UMvC3 voice actor, Steve Blum.
  • According to Death Battle Live, Wolverine had been planned to appear since the beginning of Death Battle but Ben and Chad couldn't decide who he should fight until Torrian decided that he should fight Raiden.
    • They also brought up that other suggested combatants for Wolverine by fans had been Baraka (Mortal Kombat), Vega (Street Fighter), Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street), and The Shredder (TMNT). Excluding maybe Freddy Krueger: the Death Battle team deduced that these fighters had little to no chance of victory due to Wolverine's invincibility and so all were scrapped.
      • Curiously enough, while The Shredder didn't get to fight Wolverine, he fought Silver Samurai, Wolverine's rival, in the 82nd episode.
  • Death Battle Chat officially stated that Wolverine's Claws could do very little against Superman. While Doomsday has claws similar to Wolverine, Doomsday's strength is absurd. Wolverine's strength is nowhere near enough to push his claws deep enough into Superman. Even if he could cut Superman, Superman could just regenerate.
  • Dark Claw is a Batman-Wolverine fusion.
