10 Wolverine Fates Worse Than Death

9. Having The Adamantium Pulled From His Body

Uncanny X-Force Apocalypse Solution Wolverine Death

More often than not, Magneto is not someone who f**ks around. Back in 1993's Fatal Attractions story, Wolverine found this out the extremely painful way.

Still standing to this day as one of the most iconic X-Men images of all time, this tale served up the twisted, terrifying image of Logan having his adamantium skeleton being pulled from within him. It was grim, it was garish and the artwork from Andy Kubert is utterly jaw-dropping.

In this '93 story, the UN Security Council initiate a network of satellites around the globe in order to put a halt to Magneto's powers of magnetism. Of course, the villainous sort doesn't take too kindly to this, and thus he retaliates by shutting down all of Earth's electronics - which then has Magneto butting heads with his old pal Charles Xavier.

Things actually start off rather cordial between Magneto and the X-Men here, with the Master of Magnetism remaining cool, calm and collected. Well, until Wolverine loses his cool and takes a swing at Erik. There, in the blink of an eye, the enraged Magneto tears the adamantium out of Logan's body. As in, the one and the same metal that is literally forged to Wolverine's skeleton.

So brutal was this attack, the only reason that our Canucklehead was able to survive was thanks to Jean Grey using her immense powers to hold Wolverine's skeleton in place.
