    That's a plausble theorie but if you saw Logan this guy ( antagonist ) put certain chemicals or something in the food supply to kill off mutants what if that canceled out Logan's healing factor?

    hunterh Voxland Day ago

    If he has heal factor he can heal the telomeres dude. I think that fox ran out of money to give hugh jackman and that’s how wolverine died.

  • Sakthivel Ganesan

    Corn syrup

  • Game Shit Studios

    So can this happen to Deadpool?

  • Matt _Monroe
    Matt _Monroe Day ago

    I don’t buy this. The whole premise for his healing factor is that it literally heals anything. That essentially makes everything about him all the way down to his cells indestructible. So the same would apply to his telomeres. As the telomere is damaged and eaten away it simply grows back. Therefore his DNA would never be damaged. So I hate to say it film theory but you’re wrong.

    I thought he was taking the medicine to cancel his powers to live a normal life like prof. X

  • Total Mayhem Custom Knives

    I thought his healing factor was gone was because of the whatever they did to kill off all the mutants affected it

    If adamantium was unbreakable, (I do know only a little about the series, correct me if I'm wrong) it could not corrode. How should it poison him at all?

    • Ti M
      Ti M 2 days ago

      It can break, depends on the type of adamantium. In the comics there’s 4 types, one of which is Captain America’s shield. It’s a synthetic kind of adamantium mixed with Vibranium and Iron. Logan’s is the direct form it takes from the meteorite from when it crashes on earth. Over time it’ll rust even tho it’s extremely strong, it just takes way longer than expected

  • JazzyPC

    @The Film Theorists
    The real reason why Logan dies is the chemical which is put in every food by Dr Rice, which kills other other mutants and is affecting Logan' s X-Genes like you said in the video and slowly reducing his healing factor making him age like a normal human and thus isn't able to recuperate from the poisoning of the adamantium.

  • Armando Heredia
    Armando Heredia 4 days ago +1

    Logan is as old as America hes well over 144

    • Kyle Bradley
      Kyle Bradley Day ago

      Not even gonna fact check how old America is?

  • Savage Entertainment

    Coming back to this I don’t think it’s becuase he got old. The adamantium has to have slowed his healing factor due to constantly being poisoned. At the end of the Wolverine it’s implied that magneto fixed his skeleton and will give him his claws back, probably bonding it with a better version of adamantium since he has the metal claws in days of future past, which takes place after the wolverine and seems to take place further than Logan does, Since the entire human race was able to have been killed and enslaved. His hearing factor seemed to work fine and he wasn’t dying. But that’s just a theory ...

    As Logan got older according to the comics his healing Factor Got weaker but the adamantium actually did affect the healing for according to the comics

  • Freeman Pennington
    Freeman Pennington 10 days ago

    Actually Logan's healing factor is slowed down by the adamantium without it he would have eventually it became extremely feral and lost his human side which is what eventually happened to Sabretooth and others like wolfsbane

  • Freeman Pennington
    Freeman Pennington 10 days ago

    Actually it is adamantium poisoning adamantium which is nothing more than vibranium B is extremely poisonous the only thing that's more poisonous than that is carbonadium which is also Radioactive according to the comics

  • Josh Dunne
    Josh Dunne 11 days ago

    In the movies he was born in 1812 i'm pretty sure. And Logan is set in 2029, so he'd be 217 years old. Not 140 years old. I think

  • Hunter80843
    Hunter80843 11 days ago

    adamantium is still a huge factor since his body is fighting that off, so if he didn't have any sure he would still lose his healing power but he would live so much longer

    Adamantium has been poisoning him from the get go. It's highly toxic. His healing factor was way better before the Adamantium.

    Just gold plate titanium implants. Is rly that ez.
    Gold is stupidly inert and you need rly strong acid combinations to disolve it. And there is no way in hell you are going to see in the human body concentrated sulfuric and hydrochloric acid without... well... dying... in a very painfull way
    Titanium is lighter and stronger than steel, plus, its oxides look rly nice (it can range from blue to yellow, from green to pink). The only downside is the price.

  • Scoped Bambi
    Scoped Bambi 16 days ago

    He is dying because he got nerfed no other reason, if it was poison he would of healed it, if it was dna he would of died at 126 not 170s, if it was slowed aging he wouldn't of stopped aging at 30 for 100+ years, more importantly would be if you could cut him in half would he of regenerated into two? I would assume he would, so all the times deadpool gets blown up or sliced up there should be like 40,000 of him by now if not 40,000,000,000,000 due to him trying to kill him selves for the lolz But he has his own issues that should also limit him due to the healing powers also healing the cancer at the same rate so he should just be a super fat tumor in a matter of days.

    But, aren't there 2 version of Logan after the events of Future Past? The one that stays in the past under the lake and the one that returns to the future?
    We see the past Logan in Apocalypse when Jane sets him free, recovers parts of his lost memories and them runs outside into the woods, but what about the Logan that returned to the future?
    Which Logan died? The past Logan or the Future Logan?
