Wolverine is the best there is at what he does, and if you don’t know that he’ll happily tell you. He’s known for two things, the “healing factor” that has made him nearly immortal and somehow gave him enhanced senses, and his big metal claws, later retconned to be bone claws because they wanted to ditch the adamantium but still keep his signature weapon. And now they also glow white hot after his recent resurrection because apparently death just gives Logan MORE powers. Here I thought DC was the only one misusing death.
However, since I’m continually at war with the growing insistence on “realism” that certain loud voices keep demanding we have to ask…are Wolverine’s claws even good weapons? Author and melee weapon, medieval, and fantasy enthusiast Shad M. Brooks looked into the famous blades to see if they are actually effective or just a work of fiction.
