  1. From the Way interview – “Some readers are wondering how Daken can have a tattoo, given that he inherited his father’s mutant healing factor. “Ink is not a poison. So when the wound from the tattooing process heals, the ink will still be there,” Way said. “Tattoos aren’t scar tissue. There’s scar tissue underneath but when you traumatize the skin and saturate it with ink, the skin heals and the tattoo remains. Everybody gets tattoos and everybody heals from the tattoo. The tattoo ink is left behind and it’s not poison so his healing factor doesn’t get rid of it.”

    OK, then…so why has Logan been shown by other writers over the years to be unable to sustain a tatoo? This makes no sense…so what here does?

    I still don’t like anything about Daken, but can see him being set up as an eventual Marvel supervillan through this interview with Way. I still don’t like the idea of a mysterious super-manipulator (Romulus) whose sole purpose has been control of this one character(Logan) throughout his whole life, and even into his despicable son’s life. It’s just too narrowly focused on Logan and for what?

  2. I must agree Pamlea has a point. We are always told that Wolverine`s body interprets any sort of foreign object as a threat and thus his body eliminates it. We`re not just talking about toxins – we`re talking anything, from brood eggs to the common cold germs! I don`t see how tattoo ink would be any different…they should have just said it was painted on his skin or something….

  3. Perhaps their healing factorsare different.

    I tend to look at Logan’s healing factor as more of a “status quo factor”. Logan has a set template, and every time he heals, it’s back to that one form. He never heals with more or less muscle mass, his body hair grows back with his tissue, etc. Any foreign change to his body is considered an attacker and, for lack of a better term is “healed” away.
