Wolverine is definitely one of, if not the most popular X-Men. I’m sure his brash nature, cigar smoking and blue and yellow 90s suit has a lot to do with this continued popularity, but Hugh Jackman couldn’t have hurt his reputation either.
And one of the coolest things about Wolverine, aside from the fact THAT HIS WHOLE BODY IS INDESTRUCTIBLE, is his ability to regenerate. Logan has been shot in the head and broken down on a molecular level, not to mention he’s about 130 years old, so his ability to heal faster than other people is pretty integral to his survival.
The upcoming The Wolverine movie, based on the 1982 limited series Wolverine by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, has Logan traveling to Japan and squaring off with a formidable group of samurai. So this probably isn’t the best time for Logan to become just a mere mortal. Actually no time is a good time for this, considering the amount of damage Wolverine has endured over the course of 4 feature films, as demonstrated by this handy infographic.
