My latent OCD is compelling me to point out that Wolverine's skeleton was merely coated with adamantium, not made out of it. I still knew what you meant, though. OK, now I can sleep tonight. :)

Dude. Not everyone has the same amount of OCD. Some people might say CDO, but not me. I have serious OCD and I don't have that issue. Different people have different OCD on different things. Also, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder sounds better than Compulsive Disorder Obsessive.

My own OCD (or CDO, if you prefer) compels me to point out that "Kinder" means "children", not "child". "Children's garden" was accepted, but I'm just saying.

Dammit, for the "king" question, I was thinking of an "evil" king like Herod, when I read the part about cutting the baby in half. If only I took the time to actually think about it.

I think Wolverine's skeleton is laced with, coated in, or bonded with adamantium, not infused with it... wouldn't the latter destroy his bone marrow? Might not be great for the healing factor.
+1
Level 64
Feb 16, 2020
I think the healing power is independent of everything else, and is his actual mutation. It's because he can heal any wound that they could coat him with adamantium in the first place, so the skeleton and claws aren't really his superpower per se. That's my understanding anyway. I like the X-Men a lot, but I am a dilettante when it comes to superheroes.

While Hinduism is the most-practised religion in Mauritius, it is not practised by a majority of the population, unlike in India and Nepal.
