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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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"...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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-...

Actually there's no incongruency. The Normandy landings happened in June 1944, the atomic bombings in August 1945. Unless I'm forgetting The Wolverine stating Logan was a prisoner for a very long time, it's not unreasonable to think he could have been in both theaters. It's certainly not explicitely explained, but time-wise, it's not physically impossible.

Highly unlikely. The actor you might have recognized is Hiroyuki Sanada, who in Endgame plays Akihiko, the only Yakuza who stays alive long enough for us to see his face. In The Wolverine, Sanada was playing Shingen Yashida, Mariko's father, who had more of a role already. But apart from the fact that they're played by the same actor, there is no real ...
