Thanks to his adamantium skeleton and healing factor, Wolverine is one of the most powerful characters in all of Marvel Comics. However, there have been a few different versions of the character, and in this new video we’re going to go through them to reveal just which are the absolute strongest versions of Wolverine/characters who’ve taken on his powers.
We’re starting this video off with a nearly unstoppable version of Wolverine — and it involves the Phoenix Force. In an alternate timeline, Wolverine became the host of the Phoenix Force, which enabled him to travel around the universe and wipe out celestial bodies. This form of Wolverine is nearly omnipotent and is likely the most powerful version of the hero. The Phoenix Force is already one of the most powerful cosmic entities, so being combined with the Phoenix Force makes him absolutely deadly. While this may be the most powerful version of Wolverine on this list, there are plenty more that are absolutely deadly.
Check out the video below for even more of Wolverine’s most powerful forms of the character — including some alternatives to the character who have his powers — ranked.
Created by Len Wein, John Romita and Roy Thomas, Wolverine first appeared in 1974’s The Incredible Hulk #180. While he originally started as an antagonist, Wolverine went on to become an absurdly popular hero. As for Wolverine’s on-screen future, the rights to the character now belong to Disney and Marvel Studios, which means the hero can now appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, it’s unclear just when that might be. While Marvel Studios does have plans for the X-Men, no definitive announcements have been made about when they might debut.
