I'm the best there is at what I do, but what I do best isn't very nice...
~ Wolverine

Tell Cyclops I made him a convertible.
~ Wolverine to Jean Grey

It's not just to remember your life-- --but your death, too. It's to remind me that's where I started. If I keep that in mind, that I did that, that I'll always regret it, maybe I can put some new values together, go forward. 'stead of runnin' away from the guilt of it.
~ Wolverine

Possible Opponents


Born in the 1800's, Wolverine's past throughout his 100+ year life has been filled with love, misery, and death. Having been experimented on by the Weapon X program, which coated his bones in adamantium and nearly erased all of his memories, Wolverine has spent years trying to piece it all together.

After fighting the Hulk, Wolverine decided to join the X-Men, where he battled for the dream that humans and mutants could co-exist in piece.

  • Wolverine's invincibility isn't perfect as it has exploitable weaknesses. [2]
    • Contrary to popular belief, Wolverine CANNOT regenerate from a drop of blood on his own. He was revived by a magical crystal (The Crystal of Ultimate Vision) and even then the event was noncanon.
    • Despite appearing invinicble, Wolverine has died multiple times; [3]
      • Sentinel vaporized all his flesh, giving Wolverine nothing to regenerate from (Uncanny X-Men Vol. 1 #142 (1981))
      • Had his heart ripped out by Horde (only for Wolverine to be revived by a magical crystal that came in contact with a drop of his blood) (Uncanny X-Men Vol. 1 Annual #11 (1987)).

      • Magneto vaporized Wolverine's flesh after destroying his skeleton with his magnetic powers combined with Ironman's and Cyclops' beam attacks (Ultimatum (Ultimate Marvel))
      • Stabbed by a Wolverine Clone, as only adamantium can pierce adamantium (Age of Ultron #9 (2013))

      • Died by being beheaded by Deadpool with the carbonadium sword (Deadpool Kill Marvel Universe #3)
    • Healing factor halted (disabled) by Carbonadium, Murasama Blade, and Microverse virus
    • Killable by drowning, destroying all cells, destroying his brain and keeping head from body [4]
    • Metal skeleton makes Wolverine sink in water: making him very vulnerable to drowning.
    • Adamantium can be destroyed under certain conditions
      • Adamantium can be morphed by magnetism.
        • Wolverine has lost to Magneto multiple times with very little effort.
      • Vibranium and other things that can destabilize the molecules of metals can destroy Adamantium.
      • Adamantium can't protect Wolverine from constant exposure to extremely high temperatures such as solar radiation from the center of the sun.
    • Wolverine ages slowly but can still age. When he is older, his healing factor slows. Wolverine can also die from old age.
    • Although his healing factor is able to help him to recover from anything, he isn't able to regrow missing body parts. For example, if his legs are ripped from his body, he's not able to grow new ones. He can still reattach them however.
  • If Wolverine loses his healing factor, his adamantium will poison and kill him.
  • Drawing his claws is painful as it pierces through his skin.
    • Despite his healing factor, Wolverine feels pain just like a normal human; meaning his most gruesome mutilations temporarily stuns and overwhelms his pain receptors.
  • Claws cannot stab all the way through things that are very thick; like Blob's gut.
  • Can still be knocked out sometimes [5].
  • Heightened hearing sometimes leaves him vulnerable. His sharp sense of sight means he can be blinded easily and it takes him a long while to recover.
  • Has no long ranged weapons or abilities so he requires external help in taking down air-borne opponents as well as anyone who can manipulate his body from a safe distance.
  • Has a tendency to let anger to cloud his thinking.
  • Every woman who loves dies (with the exception of Sara Pezzini, but this is in an alternate universe)
  • He was responsible for the death of all the x-men (in a alternate universe obviously) (Old Man Logan)
  • Ultimate Universe depiction of Adamantium is destructible.
  • Cinematic Universe depiction of Adamantium can be slightly weakened by hot temperatures. While still powerful enough to resist a nuclear blast: hot Adamantium can be broken by colder Adamantium.




  • Ultimate Wolverine simply put has a more absurd healing factor yet a more frail skeleton. Death Battle officially stated that they ignored Ultimate Wolverine due to being noncanonical.
  • Wolverine is the third member of the X-Men to appear in Death Battle.
  • He's the third combatant to be voiced by Xander Mobus, the first two being Lion-O and RoboCop, with the fourth being Agumon.
  • Wolverine is the third Marvel character to lose a Death Battle, the first two being Captain America and Beast.
  • Wolverine is the ninth Marvel Comics character to appear in Death Battle. The first eight being  Rogue, Thor, Spider-Man, Captain America, Deadpool, Iron Man, Beast, and Doctor Doom, with the next two being Hawkeye and Quicksilver.
  • Wolverine's 3D model is from the Deadpool video game.
  • According to Death Battle Live, Xander's Wolverine voice was influenced by Cal Dodd's interpretation from the 90s cartoon. Like Deadpool, the fight also had some dialogue from Wolverine's UMvC3 voice actor, Steve Blum.
  • According to Death Battle Live, Wolverine had been planned to appear since the beginning of Death Battle but Ben and Chad couldn't decide who he should fight until Torrian came to the decision that he should fight Raiden.
    • They also brought up that other suggested combatants for Wolverine by fans had been Baraka (Mortal Kombat), Vega (Street Fighter), Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street), and the Shredder (TMNT). Excluding maybe Freddy Krueger: the Death Battle team deduced that these fighters had little to no chance of victory due to Wolverine's invincibility and so all were scrapped.
  • Death Battle Chat officially stated that Wolverine's Claws could do very little against Superman. (While Doomsday has claws similar to Wolverine, Doomsday's strength is absurd while) Wolverine's strength is nowhere near enough to push his claws deep enough into Superman. Even if he could cut Superman, Superman could just regenerate.
  • Dark Claw is literally a Batman-Wolverine fusion.
