Losing his adamantium claws

In the series Scarlet Samurai, Logan went up against one of his deadliest enemies; Gorgon. Gorgon is a mutant with super strength, speed, and the ability to turn someone to stone with a glance (hence the name Gorgon). Logan is one of the few people to really put a beating on him. Because of that, Gorgon has become obsessed with killing Logan.

With Wolverine dead, Old Man Logan would have to do. Gorgon made his plan personal by resurrecting Mariko Yashida, brainwashing her, and forcing her to fight Wolverine. During this fight, Wolverine had his hand chopped off. In danger of dying, Logan abandoned his hand and escaped. Logan never retrieved his hand.

More than anything, Logan is known for his adamantium claws. Now, Logan has one set metal claws and the other is made of bone. This seems like another example of Old Man Logan being taken out piece by piece. Seeing Wolverine with one set of bone claws on top of the scars is a sad sight. It’s like they neutered Wolverine. At least when Magneto ripped the adamantium from his bones it was in battle.
