Special capabilities of Wolverine
There are many superheroes - but Wolverine is simply special: especially cool. He is a mutant with superhuman senses that make him a truly dangerous warrior. His senses are so sharp that he can see and hear perfectly even at great distances. He is also superhumanly strong and fast. His body adapts to the weather and he can heal himself. Muscles, internal organs, and even his eyes can regenerate within seconds.
Wolverine's biggest characteristic is of course his claws. At each hand, it has three bone-claws, that can move out as required. They are almost 31 cm long and made of pure adamantium. With it, it already made out the gar to many an opponent. The way he uses them in battle and flattens his opponents is simply typical Wolverine!
Things to know about Wolverine
Even though Wolverine is one of the most famous superheroes of all, we know relatively little about him. We know that his entire skeleton was modified with adamantium. He is also immune to all diseases, drugs, and alcohol. If you wonder how the good Wolverine can fight so gallantly even with over 100 years on his back, we have the answer: He ages much slower than non-mutants.
But he also has a weakness: the Muramasa blade. This mystical blade is considered the only weapon with which Wolverine can be wounded or killed. We doubt that!
Finally, a few fun facts about Wolverine: He has a veteran's card that says he has a metal plate in his skull. This is the only way for him to pass airport controls. Originally, he wasn't supposed to have claws at all, but to wear gloves with claws. Luckily they decided to place the blades in his hands after all. When he extends them, a unique sound can be heard every time. In the comics, this is represented by the words SNIKT. And with that we wish you a nice first appearance of Wolverine - don't let the claws catch you.
