    Can Teen Wolf Dunk?

    One thing to note is Michael J. Fox is only slightly bigger than an average sized wolf. So, his wolf powers are slightly increased from a regular wolf. Still this is more than enough for Fox to dunk. If all things stay proportional, a teen wolf should be able to jump up to 13 feet, or a 77” vertical. This is calculated for a four legged spring. Two legs could be half as powerful making only a 39" jump, not enough for the Foxy one to dunk. But considering that most of the leaping power is in the back legs probably only a third of leaping strength would be lost. That's a 51" leap and more than enough to slam dunk.​

    Hmmm....awesome comparison.
    Oddly...those guys defending teen wolf...play a defensive style similar to Will's.

    The powers for werewolves are additative, that is you still have the human jumping ability but you also have the jumping ability of a wolf added on top of this. This is supposed to be the main reason why mutants/hybrids are so dangerous and therefore forbidden. Another interesting fact, if you inject admantium into the skeleton of a werewolf it will become indestructible. They've actually tried this on wolverine/human hybrids.

    I've seen some documentaries on this. It also causes memory loss.
