It’s a moment that has been teased in comics since these two first crossed paths and is even hinted at in the original X-Men movie during the scene where Magneto controls Wolverine’s body in the train when he kidnaps Rogue. But in the Fatal Attractions storyline of July of 1993, it finally happens.
After the Magneto protocols are instituted by the UN Security Council to protect the Earth from Magneto, he unleashes a magnetic pulse, destroying all electrical devices. The X-Men, along with a walking Charles Xavier in a Shi’ar battle suit teleport themselves onto Magneto’s base known as Avalon. A battle ensues and an angry and berserker Wolverine attacks Magneto, nearly gutting him.
Magneto has finally had enough of the little guy and does what many in the comic book world have always wondered if he could. He tears the adamantium off of Wolverine’s skeleton and leaks it out of Logan’s very pores. The trauma of this nearly kills Wolverine and Xavier, having seen enough, mind swipes Magneto into a coma.
The X-Men fly Wolverine back to Earth and eventually he heals from the trauma but he is not what he once was. Without the adamantium exo-skeleton he is a shadow of his former self. But as he participates in an exercise in the battle room of the X-Men, the world finds out that Wolverine actually possesses…bone claws!
