    TL;DR - With your theory, Logan's healing factor should have killed him earlier, not elongated his life, do to too much cell division. And if not, he would have experienced genetic degradation that should have left him crippled and deformed. And if his healing factor could have healed even that damage, then it would have the ability to know what Logan's should be like psychically, even without the rest of Logan's DNA to tell it what to do. And if It could do that, then age would have no power over it, and Logan would be for all intents and purposes, immortal.

    Your theory supposes that the "X Gene" is located in a part of the genome that is susceptible to age, like a normal Humans. Except that Logan is 200 years old, give or take a decade, and has gone through more trauma then any 100 people in existence. Surely he would have regenerated so much, cell-divided so much, that if his healing factor could be taken out this way, he would have not had an elongated life, but a shortened one, his healing factor forcing him to regenerate constantly as his healing factor is always working non-stop, and his cells dividing until his healing factor cut out, and he stayed dead; premature aging also should have occurred, not elongated youth as we see in the movies. But let's then assume the possibility that the "X Gene" exists at the core of the genome, making it one of the last markers to be destroyed by cell division. Then A) It wouldn't have been affected yet, because B) why didn't Logan experience huge genetic degradation, and potential deformities as a side-effect? If all that was left was the healing factor, all the other markers determining Logan's appearance and the like, would have completely deteriorated before that, and Logan would have "healed" into a giant blob of semi-flesh, as there wouldn't have been enough genetic material left to properly determine Logan's form; there wouldn't be anything of substance left to heal because the rest of Logan's genetic code would have been gone or at least several compromised. He definitely wouldn't look like a hot Australian. "But the healing factor would fix those deformities" you might say. But how? The blueprint for what the "X Gene" is supposed to heal is gone. All that would be left would be the code to heal, with no knowledge of what to heal. The only option then, would be that the somehow, the "X Gene" itself could contain a copy of Logan's entire DNA within itself. This would explain Logan's constant youthful appearance, and why he always regenerate from things like the A-bomb into his "Hugh Jackman Form". But that is where all this falls apart. If the "X Gene" is at the core of Logan's genome, DNA, whatever you want to call it, so it isn't susceptible to age, and it contains a complete blueprint of Logan's DNA within itself to always build from then Logan shouldn't be being poisoned by adamantium, or lose his healing factor, or age. Really, at that point, Logan is Cell from Dragonball Z; as long a single cell of Logan's were to exist, he would regenerate back into Hugh Jackman every time. Some fans have suggested that the corn syrup that sterilized all the mutants, could have adverse effects on the "X Gene" in already existing mutants, and that is what caused Professor X's accident, and is what is suppressing Logan's healing factor. So, since Logan "died", like he "died in DOFP when he drown, he won't have access to corn syrup, his cells will continue to regenerate (at least the non-compromised ones; he still had a bit of healing factor, even at the end, so some of his cells are still perfectly fine; the ones that are fine will regenerate, and the ones that aren't will die off, making way for new healing factor functioning cells), until, days, weeks, months, years later, Logan would come back to life.

  • Chris Foisy

    Movie was good but they fucked up badly killing Logan. The poisoning would have never killed him. Doesn't matter how long he lived or anything. Go back and read the comics. Wolverines healing power made him basically invulnerable to diseases, drugs and toxins and never stopped working. His healing power would have just kept healing him as long as he lived. Also there was a version where Logan powers are completely inactive however beast developed a cure that stops him from being poisoned from the metal. Also wolverine is considered as a self adaptive healer. That means the more trauma he takes the better he gets at healing. So even if the adamantine is poisoning him it's been doing it long enough now that his healing power more than likely adapted to it enough to nullify it completly. So suck a dick. The only way Logan can die as stated by professor Xavier in the comics is to cut off his head and keep it very far away from his body. So suck it twice..

    This video is completely off the mark. They directly state why his healing powers (therefore, why the adamantium is poisoning him now) in the movie. Its not some crazy scientific explanation, its just that in many popular food products something has been put in to weaken or stop the mutant gene.

    Seems you forget that with cell mutations that even tho they are extremely rare like this video says, cells have several checking methods within them that check and correct any mutations (DNA copying errors). And get this each checking method the cell has each catches and corrects up to 99% of all errors. So this makes mutations in ones genes even Logan's impossible.

    I call bollocks.
    We're talking about a guy who can heal bullet wounds in seconds. Cell divisions don't work like that, hence all science can do is throw their hands in the air and say "We don't know crud".
    For all we know, Wolverine *would* be able to keep his telomeres long (and heal all other signs of aging). This is a small stretch compared to surviving a gunshot.
    For all we know, he *would* be able to keep it up indefinitely. You can put some technobabble labels onto it, but it's essentially magic.
    I'm much more satisfied with the idea of the corn suppressing his superpowers.

    haven't rewatched Logan in a wile, may do so for fact checking what I'm about to write.. but i doubt it, but I believe it's hinted at in the movie that whatever company was actually manipulating food crops to deal with the mutant problem.

    The metal has over taxed his healing & it began to & continued to falter. It was no longer able to regenerate his youth as well as eventually his physical health & it may haven even ravished his body with toxicity & caused it to break down very fast.
