What would happen if you fired Wolverine into the sun?:

For some reason, this has been on my mind today.

It's hard to kill Wolverine, but that would do it.

Wolverine would be bombarded with cosmic rays and achieve near omnipotence.
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous- Almost, at times, the fool.

His skeleton, being coated with adamantium, would survive. He'd probably regenerate from that. It happened during Civil War, when Nitro reduced him to nothing but a skeleton.

Sweet fuck, that was retarded.

He would die. Being a mammal, animal, heterotroph, Wolverine's cells require oxygen to respire. No respiration, no regeneration. DEATH!

He'd die. I remember there was one alternate universe where he was burned faster than his healing factor could regenerate, and eventually it just gave out and he died.

The sun would probably melt adamantium too. Remember Human Torch's nova burst took out Ultron.

[up][up][up][up] Didn't that one get an Author's Saving Throw that he was actually saved by some sort of Angel of Death or something? I could swear I heard that somewhere.

[up] Sort of. Basically, it was revealed that, every time he "died, " he could fight an Angel of Death to have his soul returned to his body. Of course, if his body couldn't heal itself, that wouldn't do him much good, as pointed out in the story.

So, his body was still healing itself.
Let's see...his lungs would explode, he freeze/dehydrate, he'd be flash incinerated, leaving only his skeleton behind?

I used to like Wolverine. I really hate it that they've taken him from being merely formidable to Mary-Sue level invincible.

He was a Mary sue the minute he they decided to introduce his fourteenth old flame. He is as small as Little Jeanne, hairier than A-Train, doesn't bathe, should be a terminal alcoholic and is prone to random fits of berserk rage. How does that package translate into "sleeping around" with anything but prostitutes?

Dave Cockrum originally wanted Nightcrawler to be the Marty Stu, believe it or not. Wolverine was slated to be killed off in his third issue with the team because he was deemed too similar to Thunderbird; of course they killed Thunderbird instead because they decided his powers were less interesting.

[up] Canucklehead John Byrne also fought to keep Wolverine on the team.
 14 C0mraid, Mon, 1st Oct '12 7:58:56 PM from Here and there
[up][up] It's quite obvious from the Cockrum issues that Nightcrawler is the artists favourite, he's drawn in interesting positions whenever possible and he's got the biggest role outside of what Claremont then considered to be the core three X-Men. He also was the first New X-Man to have some presence in the wider MU. Wolverine and Colossus really don't have much panel time.

As for Wolverine; he should be easy to kill. Anything that his adamantium skeleton wouldn't protect him from and would kill a person quickly should be fatal to him.

Agony. Sheer, sheer agony. I think this could be one thing that could off Wolvie.

I liked it when he was just scrappy and, despite not being nearly the most physically powerful guy, had an array of powers that made him a credible threat to even folks much more powerful than himself. One of the things I like about Hellboy, for instance, is that Mignola lets him get kicked around alot. Wolverine used to be like that, he'd get the crap beat out of him, LOOK like he was getting the crap beat out of him, but he wouldn't lay down. Now, he just seems like he can wade through scores of Eternals while stifling a yawn.

@Post 11: All Girls Want Bad Boys?

Also, would adamantium really withstand the sun? It's the goddamn sun, for crying out lout!

War ALWAYS changes. Man does not.
You could send the Hugh Jackman version of "Wolverine" anywhere you like to kill him. The sun would be just about the minimum level of lethality I would accept.

For I know Wolverine, and he ain't no Wolverine!tongue

Some one tried that once. It didn't kill him, but it would have permanently removed him, which would have been just as worse. Maybe even given he'd be burning alive for a couple hundred years or so.

I cant belive this hasn't been said yet

Okay, so how precisely does Wolvie's "rapid healing" work? Can he heal AN Ything, or would sufficiently massive trauma kill him? If, for instance, you disintegrated his heart, would his brain die from lack of oxygen or would he just flash grow a new heart?
 
Taking Back our 40 acres
He's been shown to be able to heal from anything, and yet he still ages, just at a reatarded rate. He presumably will die of old age.
