    If you got a blood transfusion from Wolverine would his blood take over and turn you into Wolverine?

    No but it would heal you slightly faster. He can make antibodies really fast too

    I would argue that the phrasing of this question at the top of the thread implies that Wolverine has been circumcised

    The use of possessive language, defining Wolverine's circumcision as being his, creates the idea that it is a procedure that has been internalized and is a part of him

    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?

    If Wolverine was a trans woman, would her body begin to self-modify as it regenerated? Would it wait until she came out to herself or would it begin even if she was denying her identity?

    Isn't there a story where he gets burned to ash but regenerates from that

    I'm not surprised if his healing factor is wildly variable

    if it is the one you're thinking of, that is fueled by a magic space crystal where a drop of his blood falls on it.

    Wolverine can be drugged so hormones should act normally in that regard. Anything surgically modified might be an issue

    A realistic healing factor ends up being an autoimmune disease.

    Over a long enough timeframe would Wolverine’s cells deteriorate due to age (as seen in hit film Logan) to such a degree that he is just a wrinkled lump of flesh unable to die?

    Is the second way you’re very short, or is it knuckle claws?

    I was thinking more like, if it's based on Wolverine's mental self-image, would she not even need hormone therapy, and would her mental self image instead regenerate her into her ideal body as determined by her self-image bypassing the need for any surgery or HRT.

    okay, if you had Wolverine's accelerated healing but not his metal bones, would getting run over by a steamroller kill you, or would it be like the end of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and you'd like

    flop around while your body like, re-inflates and your bones and organs regrow

    would it just make new bones, or would it turn the bone shards back into regular bones?

    where does he get the energy to regenerate? do you think Wolverine has to eat a lot to keep his power going?

    His healing factor can burn out if over taxed. In X-Force one of the Horseman gave him every disease and it borked him up for a good while.
    A Steam roller would likely be fatal with no adamantium

    I think I'd rather have Deadpool's crazy healing factor

    sure I look like a slice of pizza that all the cheese slid off of, but I'm pretty much unkillable

    and if set during a certain time in Deadpool's career, literally unkillable because Thanos was jealous of the budding relationship between Deadpool and Death and made him immortal

    Sorry it came off as a gross appropriation of real struggle for a joke, instead of a legit interest in LGBT themes in fiction. My fault.

    Imagine how swole he could really be.

    Since building muscle is essentially tearing it down so it can heal stronger, he could basically work out nonstop and get massively ripped really fast.

    Kind of like Hugh Jackman...

    some sort of huge, jacked man
