* EveryoneHasStandards: He's not exactly a nice guy, and he admits it, and certainly doesn't shy from killing his foes, but he is generally assumed to have a deep hatred for ComicBook/ThePunisher, because the latter is even more of a kill-happy maniac than Wolverine himself. The fact that Creator/GarthEnnis wrote a crossover that involved Punisher blasting Wolvie's face off with a shotgun, then [[GroinAttack shooting him in the balls with the same shotgun]], and then ''running him over with a steamroller'', a series of actions that caused Wolverine to swear vengeance on Frank Castle, certainly adds credibility to this theory.

This is an extremely DependingOnTheWriter thing though, as in quite a few other stories he is presented as one of the very few people who can sympathize with Frank and even bails him out when everybody is out to get him (like in Greg Rucka's ''War Zone'').

Added DiffLines:

* SuperReflexes: Logan has heightened reflexes and reaction times, which are tied to his healing factor. In the past he's demonstrated reaction times nearly on-part with Spider-Man's.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperStrength: Yet another byproduct of his healing factor. Logan's muscles, bones, and connective tissue are all denser than those of a normal human, resulting in enhanced strength. In Logan's case this is even ''further'' augmented by his adamantium skeleton: Not only does he ''need'' to be stronger to lug around the 100 pounds of metal inside his body ever day, but because his bones are unbreakable he can utilize far more of his muscles' potential than would normally possible.[[note]]Human muscle is capable of exerting so much force that it can free from its attachments, if not outright breaking bones. Thus why people are capable of tremendous feats of strength in life-or-death situations that they wouldn't be able to do in every day life: adrenaline overrides those safeguards and allows the muscles to unleash their full potential.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* AchillesHeel: While it normally isn't touched on, there is one fatal flaw to Wolverine's HealingFactor: Because of the way memories are formed, if Wolverine's brain were damaged in a specific way, he would be an amnesiac when he recovered.

* {{Ubermensch}}: He lives by his own morals and does not care what others think about his morality... which [[WhatTheHellHero has no restraints against killing in certain situations]]. Thus he fits the trope's requirements of rigidly sticking to a morality that many others often consider at least debatable. See the quote under AntiHero above. On the other hand, he is ''loaded'' with self-doubt and plagued by intense guilt about his past, and if he wasn't effectively [[{{Immortality}} immortal]] he might be suicidal. He sticks rigidly to his morality not because he believes it is the best or most ethical, but because it's an anchor to his humanity, knowing that there are still lines he hasn't crossed yet and that he has some traces of goodness in him. He ''agrees'' with the people who question his morality; he follows it anyway because it's a compromise between [[BloodKnight the man he is]] and [[MartialPacifist the man he wants to be.]]

* CanadianEqualsHockeyFan: A couple of quick gags on ''Wolverine: First Class'' showcase that even Logan is this (and it's a ''big'' BerkserkButton to interrupt him when he's watching a game... at least if you are a runaway Danger Room robot looking for a fight, that is).
