Despite the fact that Krakoa has made it so that all the X-Men can die and return, Wolverine still finds himself carrying out the most violent and dangerous missions.
From the X Men transferred to Krakoa, Of Wolverine The classic role as a team member taking on the most violent tasks has just gotten a bit more complicated. His ability to heal quickly has been useful on more than one occasion in the many confrontations he and the other X-Men have faced throughout their history. Now that the X-Men have established their own nation, things are a bit different. Mutants have the ability to resurrect, which means that the ability to take an excessive amount of damage is not unique to Wolverine.
That said, it doesn’t mean that they still aren’t putting their claws, strength, and killer instinct to good use. While X-ForceColossus has left fighting behind forever now that he doesn’t have to, Wolverine is still tearing through enemies as a fast and efficient means of eliminating the threats they pose to Krakoa. On the surface, this doesn’t seem too bad, as it’s not much different from before. But the fact that he’s not the only one who also comes with a useful form of invulnerability complicates his continued dedication to the fight.

The resurrection protocols on Krakoa have changed things enormously. Wolverine has done a lot to try to protect people, especially children with powers, from having a life of imposed violence. This includes Scout, the clone of his own clone, X-23. Now that there is a paradise like Krakoa, its usefulness as a tooth and claw damage sponge is nil because it is no longer the only one who can afford such damage. His persistent slashing through foes seems far less heroic now that it is no longer partly for the sake of protecting his most vulnerable comrades.
One of the fascinating things about Wolverine as a superhero character is how he is portrayed as the “reluctant hero.” Unlike Spider-Man, whose youth, inexperience, and desire for the life of a normal teenager prevent him from taking responsibility for a hero, Wolverine already knows that he is strong enough to take on anyone who threatens him or his friends. , and it’s more a matter of what he knows he might have to become to do that. The beastly implications of this are very similar to the fighting of many werewolf characters, as well as other characters who possess power rooted in the attributes of a predatory animal. To harness that power, they must get rid of their humanity. This is something that generally makes them very reluctant to use their power and shame when they do so and then potentially lose control. Wolverine experiences this when he gets caught up in battle and goes into a “berserker rage”.
This is most likely a way of life that someone like Wolverine cannot put aside, even if it only serves to paint him as even less of a hero. That was never the point with him. While his initial intentions were noble, deep down the most important thing was to prevent many of his teammates from getting hurt by bearing the brunt of injuries in the midst of tearing up those who threaten those same teammates. But it seems that for him, sadly, the fact that the dynamics have changed does not change things for him. He still needs to be the one to cut through threats because that’s all he knows. A violent way of life can be a hard thing to forget, and considering everything Wolverine has been through, it’s no surprise that he can’t respond to threats differently than he had before.
While it is also possible that Xavier keeps it this way because that is the only way he can be useful as a member of the X Men, Glutton He was never one of those who allowed themselves to be tied up. Your unresolved trauma is more likely to make it difficult for you to deal with problems other than with violence. And if that’s the case, it will be interesting to see where the character develops from here on out.
