I'd always thought that the movies made him a bit too indestructible as compared to what I remember reading in the comics as a kid.
speaking of, I believe his healing factor has been diminished in the comics before. Magneto once took the adamantium out of him, and it taxed the healing factor to keep him from dying.
Correct. Magneto removing Wolvie's adamantium in that epic comic issue nearly killed Wolverine and overly taxed his healing factor to the point of nearly eviscerating it. The results were he regressed into a feral, loner mess for a while. I love Wolvie's origin story - he was actually not really "indestructible" until the Canadian government laced his bones with adamantium, thereby creating the Weapon-X character that eventually became Wolverine. So much potential with his origin story...God I sound like a colossal dork.
ETA: After viewing the trailer I'm kinda disappointed on the era the movie appears to focus on. I know the original origins movie covered Logan's adamantium bonding and creation but it was so briefly and poorly done...I was hoping the reboot would truly cover his beginnings. The new movie looks like it takes place further down the road, making it not so much a reboot as a sequel of sorts. JMO.
