This thing is beaucoup scary, and i have plenty of small animals such as chickens, turkeys, along with the big ones up to horses? what would be the best rnd for blasting one, given the descriptions of the beast?
.223 to the left eye socket.
No bone/adamantium in the way on entry and no exit wound since when it hits the back of the back of the skull it will deflect inward again. ping ping ping ping ping, brain squishie! No brain, no healing.
Or a .44 magnum to the back of the head. Sharp impacts will still cause concussions. While he's out one major sword cut to the abdomen, belly to spine. Kinda hard to heal your insides when they are outside!
Edited to add: When do I get my official Geeks Decoder Ring?

Here I go dating myself. Way back in the nether regions of time, when Kitty Pride (I think) came back in time to warn the other X-Men of what was going to come, the <big mutant killing robots> the government used to hunt down all the mutants used a big whompin' laser or flame thrower to blast Wolverine. The skeleton survived, but there was no flesh left to quick-heal.
May 2, 2003, 08:59 PM
That was "Days of futures past" saga I think. Your right, the Sentinal blasted him with an energy beam that striped the flesh from the bones. Left a shiny skeleton.
Oh damn! I think I'm handing out the Decoder Rings!!
May 2, 2003, 09:06 PM
<foot tapping> Ahem? And where's my decoder ring?
Yeah I remember that story line, 'Days of Future Past'... jeez I still have all those comics packed away.
I hope the big fat guy behind the counter wasn't lying about Mylar bags being the *only* kind that would preserve them.

Okay, here's the scenario:
You saw this crazy gorillangutan looking creature by your backyard and it is acting in a hungry and hostile manner. Which gun would you use to "off" this sucker?
According to Marvel comics, yes the super hot flame thrower or laser may work on Wolverine, but to generate the massive power required for that. You would need something that would be so huge and unmanuerable.
Wolverines vulnerability is his throat. For some reason if you slice deep enough, his mutant powers can heal the rest of his body fast enough, but not his throat.
Then there is also kryptonite...... :rolleyes:

Hey, wait a minute here...
May 2, 2003, 10:42 PM
Why not the throat? Is is the stogies that he smokes? ;)

Yeah I remember that story line, 'Days of Future Past'... jeez I still have all those comics packed away. If that's the story arc that involved Professor X getting assasinated in the past, thereby altering the present, then I think I've got those all stashed away somewhere.
That story arc was awesome. Back in my comic book days I wasn't much of an X-Men fan, but I made a huge exception for that story line.
As for what gun to use on Wolverine?
Nothin', man, Wolverine's cool, and I'd rather hang with him than be on the receiving end.
If I had to, though, I'd pick the big orbital laser from Akira.

Wolverines throat is vulnerable? Are you sure you aren't thinking of Kurgan (i think thats his name) from the Highlander?

Whoever mentioned a .44 magnum to the skull to knock him out was on to something.
I don't think it gives away too much since it is not a pivotal plot point in X2, so I'll mention it. Wolverine is knocked out cold for a few seconds in the movie by a 9mm or .40 cal round fired from a Glock right into his forehead. Pretty cool...
I think you would need to cause major organ damage to kill Wolverine. Not being up on the comics I don't know how you'd do that other than knocking him out and basically gutting him like mentioned above. That was the best idea anyone's had on here short of a cosmic laser that doesn't exist, lol.

Ok Kalibear45...I give up:
What the heck was that thing?
It has me reaching for a Ruger M77 Express .375 that's not there...
May 3, 2003, 04:17 AM
geez, the answer is easier than any of you really know: get rogue to kiss wolverine and steal his healing powers, then shoot him with a mousegun. durrrrr!
it sickens me that i had a collection of comics (x-factor, new mutants, wolverine, uncanny x-men) that all are worth bukoo bucks today. i loved the "inferno" and "x-tinction agenda" storylines. i dont know what happened to my collection, lost or thrown away at some point and time.
May 3, 2003, 04:59 AM
Well, I knew one guy whose nickname was "Chupacabra", and a six pack of beer would pretty well mellow him right out.
May 3, 2003, 05:23 AM
Try a rocket launcer. He can rest in pieces...
May 3, 2003, 12:33 PM
well, i know NOTHING about these xman comics, but from what i hear about wolverine being only vounerable in the neck, and not wanting to be anywhere near him pissed off, i'd say the answer is plain simple. Hire the chupacabras to give him a hicky! when that is happening, what about calling in an AC-130 strike and wailing on both of them with 20mm rain!
May 3, 2003, 06:41 PM
well, since it does take time to heal, any major caliber rifle hit to the left eyeball should do fine.
well, that or simply leaving him out in the middle of the mojave desert. he'd melt. he is canadian, after all.
May 3, 2003, 06:55 PM
Not to spoil, but there's a great scene where Logan gets shot--classic comic book stuff!
Now, to answer the lingering what-weapon-on-Wolverine question . . .
If my encyclopedic, geekified knowledge serves me correctly, Marvel editors over the years have agreed that the one sure way to send Logan to the gods is with a missile strike, followed by swift decapitation while his overloaded healing factor shuts him down for a while. Next, removal of the head SEVERAL FEET AWAY from the body is required (I assume something funky would shoot out from the neck and retrieve the head--hey, it's comics after all).
At that point, Logan is dead.
May 5, 2003, 03:13 PM
So, Logan is akin to the regenerative Troll in AD&D. Only, you don't get two Logans if you cut him in two pieces.
Not to change the subject, but in X2, Famke Jansen is too old to play Jean Gray. And Cyclops is too wimpy. He's supposed to be BIG X-MEN LEADER, but he's a push-over. He reminds me of Captain 'Why-Is-Your-Safety-Off-Sargeant?' Steele of BHD.

"regenerative Troll": Don't you find most of those in the Handgun Forums?
