― James "Logan" Howlett/Wolverine (Marvel Comics)

The ability to rip out hearts. Sub-power of Cardiology Manipulation. Variation of Body Part Ripping.

Also Called


User can remove the heart of oneself or others, usually resulting in the target's death. This may be done either by physical action (ripping the heart out manually via brute force) or by various supernatural means.

By normal biological means, tearing one's heart out means instant death. However, the heart may be continued to be connected to the body via a magical link, and anything that happens to it afterward will be afflicted to the owner's body.
