question: How does wolverine win that when Maul could just take his head off with the lightsaber? I would have to say Maul would win that one, unless he didnt have his saber then by all means Wolverine

Well we have to take a look at cross universe. Wolverine's bones are covered in adamantium, the strongest and most dense Metal in marvel Universe. In Star Wars a lightsaber does have trouble cutting through certain metals of particular properties, Cortosis for example.

Cortosis: Cortosis ore was a very rare, brittle, fibrous material whose conductive properties caused lightsabers to temporarily short out upon contact, although the wielder could solve this problem by turning the blade back on after a couple of seconds.

Adamantium: Prior to molding it, the components of the alloy are kept in separate batches, typically in blocks of resin; when the Adamantium is prepared, the blocks are melted, together, mixing the components while the resin evaporates. The alloy must then be cast within an eight-minute time period. Adamantium's extremely stable molecular structure prevents it from being further molded after its eight-minute initial time period, even if the temperature is high enough to keep it in its liquified form.
Meaning, you can't melt it once it has solidified, even if you heat it to the temperature it was kept at in Liquid form.

To me this says, that not even the heat of a lightsaber can cut through it. Cause from observing The Phantom Menace we notice that the Lightsaber cuts through metal by heating it up, liquidating it. A great example is when Qui-Gon cut's through the blast door on the Trade Federation Ship. He doesn't just slice straight through, he has to force the blade around. Then when the blast door seals shut, he has to hold the saber in one place, turning it to heat up the stronger metal. And we see the other side of the door slowly falling apart.

Now from what we know of the description above of adamantium. Were you to attempt to cut through Wolverine with a lightsaber you would instantly find resistance upon contact with his adamantium Skeleton. Like hitting a solid titanium steal pole with a red hot poker. You won't instantly go through. SO this will leave wolverine plenty of time to react and slicing through the hilt of the lightsaber, thus destroying it. His wound would then heal and he would proceed to kill you, or in this case, Darth Maul. Wink

Winner = Wolverine.

That's right I am a nerd. And not only do I think outside the box, but I think inside it aswell. I even think about the box. Where did it come from, what is made off, who or what created it, how does it work? Razz

okay now that we know maul survived getting sliced in half by using his rage to keep him going and that makes him one tough cookie.

wolverine has a habit of being annoying to his foes thus causing maul to get fully enraged therefore negating any serious injuries.

also maul has the power of the force so him would probably be able to do magnetos trick and pick him up an twist his tin bits around

You're assuming that wolverine didn't cut Maul's Head off.

Malcom Reynolds.

Hands down.

As Ash (oigen) said, "when was mal reynolds ever in a battle that he either won or did not lose his cargo or half his crew."

But more logical thinking lets take a look at actual action. So give me some time to anylise the footage. Tonight I will be watching every instance where reaction speed was key. For Han, there is only 1, but for Reynolds there is more than 1. Razz

Oh and before anyone goes off and says "But hang on Solo has had multiple times where he had to react wquickly and shoot". Wrong, there is only one moment where he goes from weapon holstered, to aim, to shoot. This is when he runs into Vader on Bespin. I'll be checking this reaction timming. Along with a few different Moments where Mal does the same.
