    I'd just like him to be portrayed by someone his comic book size in the movies. He has omega level macho thing going and is short, a characteristic that people think is emasculating. At least action figures and video games portray him better.

    Thanks to Hugh Jackman the casual fan thinks he is tall and clean cut (He was not near as scruffy as Wolverine was at times in those movies) At least the 90's animated Cartoon had him as shorter then everyone else.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

He has also wielded many different types of firearms throughout his careers as a soldier, a mercenary, and a spy. While he was highly skilled with firearms and because of his perfect eyesight it is very difficult for him miss when firing a gun, he has stated on multiple occasions that he isn't fond of them and prefers to use bladed weapons, despite this, Wolverine used guns frequently after he lost his healing factor.

    New Muramasa: After seeking out the ancient swordsmith whom created his prior blade, Wolverine now wields an all new enchanted Katana to participate in the battle for Krakoa.

    I think they have also said that Logan can lift more that Steve because of the adamantium laced bones...they will not break under the stress of heavy weight.

    Edit...there it is above.

    He's the Bat God of the X-men, isn't he? If so, you can expect that whatever his abilities are will be magnified to ridiculous levels. Truth be told, it happens to quite a few popular characters. Modern era comics are just broken that way.

    If Wolverine is capable of survive this:



    yes, I would say he has become too powerful.

    It does present quite the paradox, eh? I mean if Wolverine can reconstitute himself from complete incineration, why bother spending bazillions to lace his bones with adamantium? Is a fractured femur his lone Kryptonite? (Of course, we know why. The writers never originally intended for Wolverine, or his healing factor, to be that powerful. But here we are.)

    It's been a long time since I read that Hulk issue, but I sort of remember a good chunk of it was Logan jumping and avoiding getting hit by the Hulk. Once Wolverine joined the X-Men, he actually got smacked around quite a bit for the first couple of dozen issues.

    Wolverine to me has had relatively mild super strength. Maybe lifting a couple of tons or so. His adamantium skeleton makes him a lot more resistant to damage from getting hit by anything physical. His senses are superhuman, maybe more than Daredevil's. His healing factor is what varies wildly and is totally story dependent.

    Outside of the claws, he seems like a very early Superman powerwise. Where he can be boosted is his experience with his abilities. He's been actively using them for decades and is demonstratively very good with them. One does not have to take his word on that.
    Why yes, I do enjoy hearing myself talk. it is very kind of you to notice>

    Couldn't agree with you more. Snapping chains definitely counts for something (IMHO):

This started when Jeff Loeb had him regrow himself from a single cell after Nitro blew him up. The most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. I'm Canadian, and love the character, but some of the stuff he does goes way beyond what he should be able to do. His brain would be mush after some of the hits he's taken. Healing factor or not, there's only so much he should be able to take.
    The Hulk rattled his brain inside his skull multiple times during WW Hulk. In reality the Hulk would squash him like a bug if he didnít stick and move which he usually does when he fights him. Ironically he never fights Thor. Probably because adamantium conducts electricity well and Thor could knock him out in just a few seconds. Wolverine is tough but he is nowhere near omega or in the league of the heavy hitters. Spider-Man would kick his ass and heís not in their league. Peter is much stronger, faster and has more skill and agility. Plus heís smarter. Like any character it depends on who is writing him. Heís a popular character so of course heís going to be written to please.

    Itís comics. Heís just popular. Stat drift is something that happens to several characters overtime.

    Look at Spider-Man or Luke Cage. As Loganís evolved he became far more impressive just like Batman or the Punisher etc.

    His healing factor is stronger than it ever was. Heís become a better fighter because of his long lifespan, some writers have thrown in martial arts masteries that I donít think for his style.

    Than weíve got the adamantium skeleton, which writers have coupled with his healing factor to make him close to immortal. I do kind of miss him as this shorter underdog character that just pushed through with effort and tenacity, but at his core I think heís still the same dude. If you want to get super nit picky you could argue about the force heíd need to generate to slice some of those incredibly dense objects as cleanly as he does. Again, itís comics all these A-list characters have these over the top feats.

    I donít acknowledge him being as strong or stronger than Captain America. He can be very strong for a person, but as far as the Marvel tiers go he should be high level human strength. He can be up there with Batman and Daredevil, but Cap, Winter soldier and BP are on a level beyond that. Than Spider-Man is on a level beyond that. Than youíve got Luke Cage, mid-tiers, top tiers etc.

    Thats because no one was in love with him yet. And certainly not Claremont and Cockrum. They found him nasty and, amazingly, useless. It wasn't until Byne came along that anyone saw any worth in him. I really don't always like what Byrne brought with it. He is not a good person.
    Dear snobs, don't try to figure out my avatar.

    Sorry, I am agnostic. And your presumptions makes you something.

    Yeah he's pretty OP, I think it will be quite hard to revert him back.

    He can come back from a single cell, is pretty ridiculous.

    I know he was depowered in Wolverine Killable, but that was temporary

    That was a specific case of a drop of his blood hitting that gem.
