    I wonder if Wolverine resents the fact that he cannot get any lasting piercings

    I feel like piercings aren't that bad. I mean, if he wants a piercing, he has to fresh pierce it, but it will heal up really quickly and then it's in there until he takes it out, y'know? In some ways I feel like I'd be more likely to get piercings with a healing factor. Like, y'know, you want a piercing for an outfit or whatever, you just grit your teeth and do it, and then at the end of the day you can take it out and have it heal back up and not think about it.

    Like, for wearing daily earrings it would probably suck, but this is Wolverine we're talking about - the guy who is causing himself pain every time he unsheathes his weapons. I think he would just get used to it.

    why not? it'd just heal around his hoop earrings, not force them out

    Based on Logan it would - his healing forces the bullets out, then closes up his wounds.

    if he can completely regenerate from separated parts of his body, are there hundreds of Logans running around now, and if not why hasn't anyone seized on this goldmine story opportunity

    Do you think his regeneration is based on his own mental self-image of how his body "should" be? That is to say, if he believes he should be uncircumcised, that being uncircimcised is an integral aspect of who he is, he will regenerate uncircimcised?

    As a brash youth he lopped it off and visualized an echidna penis, so that's what he's got going on. Ladies.

    No because it would have been done when he was a baby, before mutant powers kick in.

    But if he had his wang chopped off now it would regrow circumcised.

    But none of it matters because he wouldn't have been circumcised in the time he was born anyway.

    If wolverine's brain was turned to jelly and he regrew it would he have the mind of a toddler? I'm sure the comics have done this, what's their solution, professor-x magic?

    Would this conception get affected by his repeated bouts of amnesia?

    Is the Wolverine that we have today a product of his changing self-image, and therefore different from previous Wolverines as a result? Would we even recognize a young Wolverine, or would he be an entirely different person who has eventually regenerated himself into his modern incarnation?

    So wait, if little toddler wolverine skinned his knee real bad and left scars, they wouldn't get regenerated away once his mutant powers kicked in during puberty? Becuase I feel like they would.

    I'm specifically thinking a bunch about Wolverine's tendency to view himself as a bit of a monster.

    What if he was extremely handsome as a young man? You know, a real Hugh Jackman type? But his poor self-image led him to regenerating and regenerating and regenerating until he'd fully Ship of Theseus'd himself into a weird hairy growl boy.

    Super healing powers require the body to somehow know what is allowed to regenerate based on the desires of the person or else you end up with questioning how their muscles can become stronger given how building muscles works, how they grow at all, etc.

    If I remember right Canada's at around 1/3 circumcised currently, though in the mid 1900s we were around 50%.

    While I think the question of whether Wolverine even would be circumcised is interesting, it is tangential to the question of if a healing factor like the one he has would reverse a circumcision.

    That's only if you're one of the hoity toity southerners, if I remember right wolverine was a northerner, and if he had it done it would have been done using a beaver.

    I can't speak for all of Canada but Quebec accounts for about a quarter of the country's population and for various cultural reasons circumcision has basically never entered the culture here.

    I was actually wondering the same thing. Dunno if Albertans get snipped.

    Here the combination of it being an American, anglophone and protestant idea meant it never had a chance.

    I think there was a movie where his brain healed pretty well but recorded memories didn't come back.

    It could be fun to only have piercings sometimes.
