My gaming group has been running a x-men campaign for over a decade. Its amazing how ineffective Wolvie when following consistent rules. Basically he is a baseline human with no special mobility and only possessing melee range stabbing attacks. Sure, he is damn near impossible to kill but he ends up spending most of his time healing from attacks by much more mobile opponents with ranged attacks.
The amount of plot armor that allows him to get within stabbing range with his short 1-foot blades is astounding in the comics. Flyers, jumpers, speedsters, ranged blasters... virtually no opponent would let him get anywhere near but in the comics he always magically is right in their face.
Once you notice it you'll never unnotice it. "why again did they wait for wolvie to be within arm's reach to react to the angry midget with the daggers attached to his wrists?">>103273673
In all fairness, Spidey had spent 2 issues running from Firelord who was caught off-guard when he suddenly pulled a 180 and started throwing spidey-speed 20-ton punches at his head. Its often been shown in Marvel that high-durability characters still have brains that are subject to unconsciousness from being rattled around a bit too much.
Firelord could've beat Spidey at any moment if he wanted, he mentioned multiple times of holding back because he could've casually nuked the city to make sure a blow landed on Spidey.
So basically this grand feat comes down to, do you think rapid-fire 20-ton punches is enough to knock out an offguard herald? I read this issue when it was on the newstands and it didn't shock me at all. Think we saw Sabretooth knocking out Rogue that same month when he got the drop on her and slammed her face into a boulder. Humanoid brains are fragile even when housed in a metahuman body.
