However, his adamantium claws and bones made Wolverine extremely vulnerable to specific attacks, especially Magneto’s manipulation of the metal. Marvel Comics just reminded readers how Magneto’s Most Dangerous Attack, where the X-Men villain stripped Wolverine of his adamantium from his body, led the hero to realize who he was and embrace his human nature. He won his biggest personal victory.

Wolverine Story Magneto

In the end, without the adamantium being stripped of his bones, which sent Wolverine into depths of self-discovery like he had never known before, he would never have emerged as the hero that it is today. He pulled himself out of his most animal form, eventually regained his adamantium bones, and became a teacher and mentor to the X-Men, an Avenger, and an inspiration to other heroes. His biggest defeat pushed him into new territory, from which he would emerge with a massive personal victory.

If Wolverine had never been sent by Magneto into the darkest examination of his true nature, he would never have won his greatest victory. The loss of his adamantium bones sent Logan down a difficult path – but ultimately, Wolverine would become a greater hero because of Magneto destroy it.
