Could Wolverine take on Thanos?

Do it for Ironman!

Avengers: Infinity War was not just another superhero movie. We saw the world’s mightiest superheroes fall on their knees while some turned to dust. We saw the power and potential of the infinity stones. Most importantly we saw the reason why Thanos is called the Mad Titan and how powerful he is with or without the infinity stones.

It also raised a lot of questions as to who can take on Thanos, because we saw Earth’s mightiest heroes and even Gods lie defeated.

Thanos is one of the most powerful supervillains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) even without the infinity stones. So, what exactly are the infinity stones that make Thanos the most powerful being in the entire universe? There are six Infinity Stones:

  1. The Space Stone (blue)
  2. The Reality Stone (red)
  3. The Power Stone (purple)
  4. The Mind Stone (yellow)
  5. The Time Stone (green)
  6. The Soul Stone (orange).

We have heard about the stones in so many MCU movies but they are known by different names.

For example, MCU fans will know them as The Tesseract, Loki’s scepter, Aether, Doctor Strange’s medallion or Eye of Agamotto, and the stone that created Vision. We saw the Soul Stone before Gamora was brutally murdered by Thanos.

Each infinity stone is so powerful and destructive depending on who is wielding the stone. All of them combined makes it the most powerful weapon in the universe capable of doing literally anything.

Like wiping off half the lives in the universe which Thanos did or bringing back the people who were wiped off after 5 years which we saw in Avengers Endgame.

The infinity stones are so powerful that even holding them is fatal. Remember in Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord almost lost his life holding onto one (Power Stone). Even Thanos for that matter nearly lost his life after using the infinity stones.

So the person who holds them is the most powerful being in the universe. By that, I mean both MCU and DC.

Disney/Fox merger has given fans of MCU and DC the idea of an Avengers and X-Men crossover movie. Some fans were even convinced that Wolverine will be in Endgame because of the scars on Thano’s face.

It would have been epic if Wolverine and Thanos face each other. Wolverine is one of the most powerful mutants with the regenerative power, and him facing Thanos would have one of the greatest battles ever.

But since (spoiler alert) both the iconic characters are dead. I mean Thanos did die, not once but twice in Endgame. And Wolverine died in Logan (still not over that scene).

So the chances of these two to facing each other in movies is near to impossible. But we can imagine them fighting, and analyze the result depending on their powers.

The result of the battle between Wolverine and Thanos entirely depends on whether Thanos has his infinity gauntlet where he keeps all his infinity stones. No doubt Thanos is very powerful even without the infinity stones.

Thanos is a very strategic, manipulative, extremely intelligent and excellent warrior. He has known war his entire life and he is very strong.

But Wolverine has Adamantium which is the strongest metal in the MCU world. It is impenetrable and Wolverine’s claws can cut through anything even Thanos strong and thick purple skin. Wolverine too has been fighting his entire life, he has seen so many wars and he is driven by his emotions a lot. If he sees Thanos killing the people he loves, he’ll come onto him with full rage and defeat him.

Also, Wolverine has regenerative powers, which means that he cannot be snapped to ashes. He can recover from that seeing how fast he regenerated himself in X-Men: The Last Stand when Jean Grey tried to kill him.

So, in conclusion, Wolverine can totally take on Thanos without the infinity stones. Even if the fight happens with the stones, it’ll very difficult for Thanos to kill Wolverine but eventually, Thanos will win given that he has the most powerful weapon in the world. But if the battle is between Thanos without the gauntlet and Wolverine, then Wolverine will definitely defeat him. Without a doubt, it’ll be one of the most epic battles ever.
