From his wiki: Wolverine's natural healing also affords him the virtual immunity to poisons and most drugs, except in massive doses. For example, it is extremely difficult for him to become intoxicated from alcohol. So to answer your question: Intoxication is a state of being poisoned. Shouldn't his powers prevent him from it? They do, largely. ...

Wolverine and Sabretooth were not in the American Revolution. They were born in the mid 1800s, nearly a century after the Revolution (1775-1783). The first scene of X-Men Origins: Wolverine takes place in 1845, when Wolverine is seemingly a pre-teen (typical age mutant powers emerge). The American Civil on the other hand, did have James and Victor fighting ...

As stated on the Marvel Comics webpage for X-Men: Xavier spent months recruiting his early students (code-named Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast and Marvel Girl), dubbing them "X-Men" because each possessed an "extra" ability normal humans lacked.

From Wolverine V3 #33 In this scene Mystique seems to be sad that Wolverine abuses pills and drugs. It doesn't seem logical for her to be sad for they can't really hurt him. But maybe the backstory might be suggesting him having some probably romantic problems. But still, this comic shows that Wolverine can certainly drink for reasons other than taste. ...

Interesting point - since Wolverine is a fictional character, it could simply be because adamantium teeth are not good looking. However according to this article It seems to be related that teeth do not have any cells to repair themselves, plus they are exposed to what we breath in and eat. Maybe the bones that where bonded where only the ones that could ...

X-Men (1st series) # 20: (May 1966) Years ago, Xavier discovered a city in Tibet being under some sort of alien mind-control. The professor managed to inspire a rebellion against Lucifer, and the alien was forced to abandon his base, however not before causing a block of concrete to fall and crush Xavier’s legs.

I assume that because he no longer has powers (and is no longer a mutant) they see him as no threat. The main idea of prison is to rehabilitate criminals so they can be released back into society safely. Magneto losing his powers was his rehabilitation as such. I assume the authorities think that Magneto's power loss is permanent so he will no longer want ...

Because X-Men is not The Last Airbender? Because the amounts of these metals in the body is far to small, remember the security guard had been injected with a lot of iron (this is about one of the most ridiculous scenes I have ever seen!). Also because the metals that you list are not magnetic (they only generate a tiny magnetic field) With respect to ...

Firstly, the post-credits scene from X-Men 3 hints at his survival. If for any reason you can't view the video, this is what happens (from the wiki): After the credits there is a scene at the hospital, where the comatose man from the video that Xavier showed his students is lying in a hospital bed. Dr. Moira MacTaggart enters the room to see the ...

To answer your main question, X-Men First Class is based before X-Men Origins. X-Men First Class is based in the 60s. In 1962, the United States government enlists the help of Mutants with superhuman abilities to stop a malicious dictator who is determined to start world war III. In Origins, Striker doesn't approach Wolverine until the 70s. ...

Scoping it within the limits of the X-Men movies, specifically X-Men: First Class we have the following on the movie's IMDB Quotes page: Raven Darkholme: We have to call him, Havok. That's his name now. And we were thinking... [points to Charles] Raven Darkholme: ...you should be Professor X... [points to Erik] Raven Darkholme: ...and you should ...

I haven't seen X-Men: Days of Future Past, so I can't comment on whether this was shown in the film, but this site does include quotes from the director, Bryan Singer, on the issue: That wasn’t the only tempting breadcrumb that Singer threw to Empire, as part of the organization’s Days of Future Past marketing blitz. Fans who’ve been paying close ...

Also, the mutant gene that they posses is called the "X-Gene".

Days of Future Past reveals, albeit somewhat subtly and with more inference than direct exposition, the reason for Xavier's inability to walk... Personally, I think this was supposed to be conveyed as part of his secondary-stage mutation: which was perhaps too much of a concept to fit into an already crowded narrative. The real unanswered question, is ...

Liev Schreiber who plays Victor Creed in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is indeed essaying the role of Sabretooth (as depicted in X-Men). From Wiki Played by Tyler Mane, he was a henchman of Magneto in the first X-Men film and X-Men: The Official Game. Liev Schreiber plays him in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Since, your awareness of the comics ...

In humans, teeth make up part of the skeletel system but they are not classified as bones. Teeth are made up of Dentin and Enamel whereas bones are made up of Osseous tissue. So I imagine the adamantium only bonded to the Osseous and not the Dentin or Enamel which results in adamantium bones and shiny white teeth.

Most of Logan's death-defying experiences are excused by his regenerative ability or the added strength of his adamantium skeleton (added in 1979 per the movie canon timeline). When one is inactive, the other picks up the slack, so to speak. In The Wolverine I believe the audience is meant to understand that his skeleton is deflecting and/or softening ...

Professor X does not need to touch his temple when he uses his telepathic powers. I've always thought this was a visual cue for the audience. He can be seen using his powers several times in films when he's having a casual mental conversation, using Cerebro, or touching someone else. He's also sometimes depicted in the comics using his powers without ...

I think the movie answers all this pretty well, but let's look at your questions step by step: When he wakes up at the end of the movie he remembers what he did in the past but has no memory of his new timeline. This is true and is because it is his old-timeline version who awakes at exactly the time when he would awake from Kitty's control in the old ...

I wondered that myself when watching it, but in fact it's actually explained right in X-Men: First Class. When Hank examines Raven's cells, he tells her that the same mutation making her transformable also slows her aging process: You got to see this. Your genes are extraordinary, you know that? Your cells age at half the rate of a normal human. When ...

From Magneto's perspective, Stryker's actions were indicative and representative of humanity's perspective concerning mutants. As such, he identified humanity's disillusionment of mutants as being genocidal. Therefore, he saw it as only fair that, with him being mutant's "representative", he would reverse the situation against those of Stryker's yolk.

I think this quote on the X-men: First Class wiki page gives us a decent amount of insight as to why they're making "prequels": As producer Simon Kinberg read the comic series X-Men: First Class, he suggested studio 20th Century Fox to adapt it. Kinberg, however, did not want to follow the comic too much, as he felt "it was not fresh enough in ...

Well, mostly because the costume is a bit ridiculous when taken out of the context of four-color comics. Might as well ask why Logan's hair doesn't stick out to both sides as much as it does in the comics: just because something works, visually, in the medium of print comics doesn't mean it will work in the medium of live-action cinema. As @AnkitSharma ...

Probably for the same reason that humans are not really magnetic to start with: The amount of various metals in a human is actually quite small. I checked out this Wikipedia entry on the composition of the human body, took the metals you mentioned and checked to see how much all those metals together weigh. The total amount of all those metals in the average ...

Memory is stored as a series of chemical changes or connections in the Brain. So the memory is in fact a neurological matter existing physically in the brain. Amnesia is loss of memory. The memory can be either wholly or partially lost due to the extent of damage that was caused. There are two main types of amnesia: retrograde amnesia and anterograde ...

According to X-Men Origins: Wolverine (which is very loosely based on the Origins comic series), Wolverine was born James Howlett in Canada in the late 1830's. In 1845, he sees his father murdered by their groundskeeper, and that triggers his mutation to activate: bone claws, regeneration, etc. It's at this point that Howlett and his half-brother Victor ...

If you watch the movie The Wolverine till end then you can see that Wolverine meets Prof. Xavier and Magneto at the airport and they ask to regroup. Both these character help Wolverine to get back his metal claws (with major help from Magneto of course, because he controls metal) so that they can fight the Giant Mutant Destroyers in X-Men: Days of Future ...
