Hence, the "MUCH grander scale." \:\) Of course, Wolverine was intimately involved in the Cuban Missile Crisis in assassinating Soviet leaders, apparently, so the actual answer seems to be "about as often as Ares". \:\)

I figure we have to take Ares as starting over after the miniseries. He IS trying to be better... he's just really, REALLY bad at it!
