Superheroes and supervillains are known for their legendary deeds, often compared to gods. Even though you have beings like Iron Man and Spiderman who possess superpowers, at the end of the day, they are mortal and can die. But there are some characters that become stronger than ever by attaining the power of a god. In so doing, they become mightier than anyone. These moments fascinate readers, as they want to know what happens next when someone like Spider-Man becomes the mightiest hero in the universe. It’s not something that happens often, but a number of characters have achieved godlike status, and in this article, we are taking a look at one such popular Marvel superhero that attained God-like powers: Wolverine
Wolverine is virtually immortal thanks to his accelerated healing factor and adamantium skeleton. The only thing that could make him even more dangerous is godhood. In the 1987 Uncanny X-Men Annual #11, Wolverine temporarily becomes a God after a mysterious entity called Horde instructs the X-Men to break into the Citadel of Light and Shadow to steal the Crystal of Ultimate Vision. The X-Men face danger at every turn, with the Citadel tempting the X-Men with their deepest desires. Nearly all the X-Men are defeated. Yet Wolverine refuses to stay down.
He is about to acquire the crystal when Horde appears and kills him, having wanted the X-Men to make a safe path for him. But when Wolverine dies, a drop of his blood hits the crystal and Wolverine is awarded the powers of the Crystal, resurrecting him and becoming one with the universe, turns into a God. But Wolverine being Wolverine rejects the power and returns his teammates back to normal.
