    What would happen if you took a character with an advanced healing factor like Wolverine,Deadpool or the Hulk and split them in half down the middle, keeping the too halves seprate and then left them both alone for the night?
    Like this -:-(--------

    Would the two halves each regenerate what they needed and become two seprate yet identical beings?
    Logicly I believe they would. If you look at animals that regenerate like worms and sea stars it would have to be true.
    I think this is a very cool concept and the only plausible explaination for Wolverine being in so many places at once.

    It's a good thought.

    I hope a writer puts it to the test one day.

    Imagine someone in a lab, using an adamantium saw to cut the Hulk in half over and over again.

    Mass produced Hulks would be a bad idea for mankind, but a good idea for us comic readers.

    Wouldn't really work on Wolverine since he has the admantium skeleton.

    Could the Hulk survive getting split down the middle? Splitting his brain and spinal cord in half? He'd be in a hell of a lot of pain, which would make him angry, which would make him really strong, same with the resulting clone.

    I may have to steal this idea, when I write a comic.

    The thing about Wolverine is that he's supposed to just have a healing factor. Not regeneration. Someone like the Hulk or Lobo, this would apply to. With DP and Wolvie, they should just die. But they've done some crazy s**t with Wolverine in the last ten or so years. So, who knows.

    Brain death = death. Cutting the brain in half would take care of that in a hurry.

    Regeneration is just like a more extensive form of healing. Normal people can't heal from half the stuff that happens to Wolverine given any amount of time. I think it is safe to say that Wolverine has a degree of regeneration. Like regrowing all the meat back onto his arm or something.

    Don't do drugs

    Go to Church

    Stop reading comic books

    You think I listen to that insanity? Noooo.

    I like to spend my Sunday mornings getting stoned and reading comics.

    If Deadpool can get half his head destroyed and regrow it,why can't you spilt Deadpool's head in half and have each half regrow what it needed?

    Of course you would have to do the whole thing or else you would just end up with two headed Deadpool.

    Hey that might be cool they could play off one another.:)

    Actually, Deadpool's healing factor is more comperable to The Hulk and Lobo, and it definately dwarfs Wolverine's. Or at least it should.


    Ecxept, there are recorded cases of perfectly normal people losing half of their brains, survivng, and functioning perfectly normally.

    Plus we are talking about comic book characters. The Hulk in particular.

    Tell the Hulk that he can't jump into the moon, and you will probably make him mad enough that he will leap out of Earths atmosphere, grab the moon and volleyball spike it on your head.

    Hulk is strongest one there is. Disection no stop Hulk. You think he puny like Banner?

    I hate when people do crap like that with The Hulk. They make him capable of any feat of strength they can think of. It's ****ing annoying.

    It fits with the Hulk's mandate, though.

    I hope someone applies this idea to Wolverine someday. He's so beyond being anything but a joke character at this point that they should just go all out and run with it.

    I can imagine this happening to the hulk with some sort of laser cutting device. That takes care of the whole "he'll be very angry" part, cause it would take only a few seconds.

    A more interesting theory. What happens if ou cut him in half at the waist? What happens to his pair of legs that just flobble around?

    Not without losing the things that seem to make him popular these days. I'd love to see him return to his roots as the scrappy underdog who wins by fighting dirty and (here's the key) intelligently, but people seem to like the fact that he fights like a drunken brawler and his healing factor's been trumped up to the point where they can seriously discuss his regrowing two whole new bodies after getting cut in half. :o

    Nah, I think Logan's had his run in that respect. He's no longer Wolverine, the good character, he's Wolverine, the cash cow.

    I refuse to believe that there's no hope for any character. Batman's a cash cow, but DC's managing to slowly but surely return him to being a pretty good character now, as well. Same with Spider-Man. He was actually starting to shape up and develop beyond the chronic man-child cash cow with the new teaching job and stuff, until all of that was set on the back burner for ridiculous stories about coccoons and his girlfriend ****ing his arch-nemesis.

    Exactly. I'm afraid Wolverine is doomed to that same fate. At least, y'know, Spidey is able to stick to New York half of the time, but Wolverine, they don't even attempt to create a timeline for his adventures.

    That's a secondary concern for me. I'd like to see Wolverine not be a waste of what was once a good character before I become concerned with his ridiculous overexposure.

    The two are linked in my opinion. Wolverine's overexposure seriously dilutes the character.

    I suppose it does to some extent, but that takes me back to Batman. He's been portrayed pretty well in most of his appearances, so the overexposure doesn't seem as bad. It still detracts from the character that he appears everwhere all the time, but not as much as it does for Wolverine because he doesn't have the added problem of being a crap character these days.

    You've got a point there. Maybe Wolverine is redeemable, but not if they keep this up for many more years to come.

    I say no.


    My initial thinking was the the human body isn't semetrical. if cut in half down the middle the heart would only be on one side. That side would live.

    But also as mentioned above cutting the brain in half would kill them. We saw in the AOA that Deadpool without a head is dead.
