I like how pretty much all of the ninjas appear disinterested in the shirtless, screaming claw guy in their midst.

I see worse shoops in ads every damn day. Smells like a cheap PR stunt.

They must have seen Origins, that would make me pretty disinterested about Wolverine as well

You don't see Ninjas. That's the point of ninjas.

And how did the Wolverine get past the airport metal detectors to travel to Japan?

The "Silly"  tag is a dark, mysterious force of unimaginable multitudes like a sea of unspecific Asian ninjas that grind on you when you are at your most vulnerable.

They should have Sam Kieth draw a poster. He's the best there is at what he does, and what he does is draw badass Wolverines.

He's a superhero with a mouth full of ninjas, and when he screams ninjas shoot out of his mouth.

GungFu: And how did the Wolverine get past the airport metal detectors to travel to Japan?


It's not unlikely that adamantium is non-magnetic, and that the magnetic field of the detectors is not enough to induce paramagnetism. Metal detectors don't detect metal- they detect electromagnetic fields created by moving metal through a magnetic field. They're actually really big electric guitars, and the change in your pockets is the string.

Except for the small matter of Magneto being able to easily manipulate him due to the adamantium.

Which would be sort of countered by magneto ripping the admantium off him in one arc? Or is magneto master of all metal regardless of magnetism?

Master of electromagnetic power down to the sub-atomic level as he can also manipulate light by deflecting photons and rearrange matter as well.

In short he can do whatever the fark he wants for the most part.

Yeah, he's occasionally been written into a level power that is pretty much the story version of 'game-breaking'. He has pulled the iron out of the blood of normal humans through their flesh and made it solid.

He's basically a story device at certain point and not even a character.

Both there for awhile, they wrote themselves into so many corners there for years I welcomed the reboot and coming reboots.

I mean thats not the only reason, Storm with a Mohawk helps and all that.

It's a reimagining of a sequel to a reboot.  Duh.

adder1: Except for the small matter of Magneto being able to easily manipulate him due to the adamantium.


With a powerful enough magnetic field, you can induce magnetism. Aluminum is non-magnetic, but with a powerful enough alternating field, you can use eddy-currents to make it magnetic. Copper is a more common example. Think about those videos online of powerful magnets being dropped through a copper pipe- a magnetic field is created in the copper because of electrical currents induced by the moving magnet.

So if Magneto is able to induce a sufficiently strong magnetic field, alternating at the right frequency, he could induce electrical currents in adamantium which would make it magnetic.

//This phenomenon, by the way, is called "paramagnetism".

James Bond became a ninja, and took down ninja hordes, in 1967.   I think that makes him the original western ninja-killer.

Yeah, but he had to undergo complex surgical procedures to become Japanese in order to make that possible.

So Hugh Jackman plays the bad guy this time?  Is there a bad guy?  Or is this the one where Wolverine becomes a successful Wall Street stockbroker?

Wouldn't ninjas be one of the more useless things to throw at Wolverine?  His bones are laced with a metal that's certainly stronger than sword blades, he has a healing capability that would keep him from being stabbed to death.  Not to mention ninjas generally would need to get up close the combat Wolverine, where he can then use his claws.

Oh my god, why am i wasting time rationalizing this?

There was a magical red sword which caused wounds that never heal, too.

Didn't he set off the metal detector at Ellis Island in the first X-Men movie?  Which would kind of point to the fact that he is in fact magnetic ...

Is it must me, or has Wolverine become the most tiresome and overused character in the X-pantheon?

I remember the 90s when he was in at least a dozen comics simultaneously, with at least four of his own.

The only character whored out that much is Batman.

I guess that makes sense, since they both benefit from the same plot armor and fan-wankery.

Guess it's worth adding for the purposes of this thread, that increase the magnetism enough and you can levitate a spider. So, adamantium or no, magneto might be able to lift wolverine.

True enough point there. Since I was addressing the magnetic properties of adamantium in relation to metal detectors, I should have also brought up the fact that in X-Men 1, he did set off the detectors at the Ellis Island.

I'd like to think that it was a statement against the studios' use of just Photoshopping the actors in various backgrounds and saying, "Hey, let's get some artists in here and design a piece of art. Something that people would like to hang on their walls for years to come!"

This was the last movie poster I can recall seeing that did not use Photoshop, that was a work of art (even if the movie was the best of teh suck):
