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. ...

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. In ...

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 ...

Yes, he has his healing ability and the adamantium skeleton minus the claws which were original bone anyway and due to his healing ability he can regrow the bone. The silver samurai was taking his bone marrow which is believed to be the source of his healing factor...numerous discussion as to if this is the case or not. The script implies that the "Viper" ...

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 ...

No, Stan lee only appears in the film versions of characters he created alone - he was not the sole creator of Wolverine. This is also the reason why he does not have a cameo in Ghost Rider, Elektra or The Punisher. This subject has approached before in a couple of SE questions here and here.

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 ...

From the Wikipedia article for adamantium: Adamantium's extremely stable molecular structure prevents it from being further molded even if the temperature is high enough to keep it in its liquified form. Since this is a fictitious material, you are excused from unsuccessfully applying real world insight. If there is an answer, it is because the overall ...

According to this Marvel timeline: In 1973: "Early" scenes of X-Men: Days of Future Past are set. Mark I Sentinels are created. Between 1973 and 1996, Trask produces 8,732 Mark I Sentinels for the governments of the United States, China, Russia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, France, India and the United Kingdom. In 2013: The year that "The Wolverine"...

Stan Lee says he just didn't have time to fly to Australia to film the cameo.

As was shown in the film, Harada was Mariko's lover at one time, and still loved her. She wanted to save Wolverine, and this prompted Harada to side with Mariko, and attacks Yashida so that Mariko can save Logan.


9

mere speculation I think Yashida "faked" his own death because he could not stay a public figure (head of a big company) while still becoming the Silver Samurai. Since Logan had refused to provide his healing abilities, Yashida might have decided to force it from Logan in the guise of Silver Samurai. It is seen in the final climax that Wolverine vs Silver ...

If you watch the movie The Wolverine until the end then you can see that Wolverine meets Prof. Xavier and Magneto at the airport and they ask to regroup. Both these characters help Wolverine to his metal claws back (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 ...

The adamantium wasn't being drilled, the claws were cut in order to gain access to the bone underneath. It's more likely Yashida was tapping into wolverines bone marrow to extract the healing factor. In humans new blood cells are created within the bone marrow, so it would be realistic to presume that the bone marrow is a great place to harvest newly created ...

The Silver Samurai drilled into the stumps of Wolverine's claws in order to begin the process of stealing his healing factor, but he had no interest in the adamantium. He made no effort to collect the claws he had lopped off, or to reclaim the adamantium shavings left behind by his drilling. The adamantium in the rest of Wolverine's skeleton was ...

My understanding was that claws were just bones. He had the Adamantium put on his bones, as in they covered them. Once he had his claws broken off, the Adamantium came with them, and the original bone is what regrew. Weapon X didn't give him Adamantium bones, they just covered them in Adamantium. He still has bone underneath, and that bone is weak, like any ...

It is possible that they merely knew the Sentinels were becoming more and more advanced. We see the Mark I Sentinels in 1973 with the Mark X (ha!) being the super-powered ones we see in 2023-D (D meaning the Dystopian future). Considering this scene with them recruiting Wolverine takes place in 2015-D we can assume the Sentinel program is probably ...

Wolverine's adamantium skeleton is toxic and a good chunk of his healing ability is constantly in use countering that effect. This is explained in more detail in the months preceeding his death as Beast invents and administers an antidote when Wolverine loses his healing factor permanently. Since his healing factor could be overloaded (Re: Post-Adamantium ...

Director James Mangold explains why it wasn't used in The Wolverine: Superherohype.com: Oh definitely. Now before I let you go, I have to ask about that alternate ending where we see Wolverine’s classic costume (pictured below), was that your idea and why didn’t it make the final cut? Director James Mangold: It was my idea and it was something I ...

No, Stan Lee did not make an appearance in The Wolverine.

You are confusing the part as to what yashida exactly wanted. Yashida wanted Wolverine's healing factor to stop himself from dying. As they fight, Yashida in the guise of the Silver Samurai cuts off Logan's claws, and begins stealing his healing factor. From the onset of the movie, Yashida is after Logan's healing factor and not his admantium. When fighting ...

He was there in a bunker when the bomb goes off. However it doesn't imply that he was there during whole war. WW2 lasted for many years during which Wolverine fought in some battles and moved from place to place. Even after the bombing, he doesn't need to stay in the bunker more than a few days at most, due to his regenerative abilities. According to wikia, ...

I can only recall her mentioning that Yashida hired her. It might not be worth a complete answer since it's just speculation, but I'd consider that motivation enough for her. Yashida is extremely rich and goes out of his way to overcome death, so it's likely he paid her quite a good amount for her services. Unlike Harada, Viper doesn't seem like a person ...

A few key points: Wolverine was not in the epicenter. The epicenter of the Hiroshima bomb was 500 meters in the air. It's fireball did not touch the ground. Minimal fall out, intended to cause soft body damage without too much structural damage. The farther from the hypocenter, the less damage. The Hiroshima bomb was 18 kilotons of atomic power. Weak ...

Also don't forget the adamantium in his body its not normal human bone it's the adamantium (the only thing that it can fight against it is Captain America's shield and adamantium itself). Hence he might have lost his healing ability but his bones are strong as hell and while fighting that big robot guy he was very careful (watch the scenes closely).

Why not? As you mentioned he got remembered Striker's experiment in X2. The same time he may also have remembered all part of his lost memory or triggered some regeneration of lost brain cells process (IMAHO he is a mutant with re-generating capability). Fox was already starting fixing their continuity problems before The Wolverine, so it's not a stand-...

In addition to kicker86's answer Harada probably also realized that Yashida has finally turned mad out of his fear of death. He maybe had to fight an internal struggle all along. While Yashida was his master and the Black Ninjas always served his family, he also realized that his recent ways were a bit skewed. This is evident in his dialog with Mariko when ...

Firstly, Yashida was a nice guy until he was on his deathbed. Logan himself rescued him in Nagasaki due to the kindness shown by the Japanese to both himself and the other prisoners of war. So it's understandable that he would have been inclined to rescue an orphan girl looking through the garbage for food and set her up as a playmate for his granddaughter. ...

While it is highly doubtful that a kid Yukio could have developed mutant powers, once Yashida came to know about them, he must have kept her closer. Earlier on, as explained, she was adopted simply because she could be friends with Mariko. Whatever happened, Mariko was the only heir to the family. Also, Yukio would always be adopted, an outsider. Such is ...
