Quote:This is not a recent problem. Going way back to the eighties he stabbed Rachel Summers to prevent her from killing Selene, the mutant vampire who had become the Hellfire Club's Black Queen. It was Claremont's way of writing Rachel out of the X-Men to put her later on in his new series, Excalibur. I remember I was so upset it was the first time I ever wrote someone at a comic book company and it was really when the shine came off of X-Men for me. That was how big a Wolverine fan I was at the time.
Well, I'm not saying he shouldn't stab. He's got claws after all. The Rachel thing was a "last straw" situation, if it was even meant to kill (and I'm not so sure). But it's become his first reaction to everything because writers simply cannot think better. He's become a caricature.
In fact, that example is the perfect display of how Wolverine should be written: talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and then stab. As mad as it seems it made you, it had nothing but love from me: that's one of the best X-Men arcs of all time.
