Quote:That is a good question. Now that I am older I can look back and say that yes, Wolverine was awesome. He was the short, ugly loner, a man always on the edge of going berserk. I loved how he had to deal with this inherent savagery as he was written as a guy coming into the role of a mentor and surrogate father figure. The way Claremont wrote him, it felt as if becoming Kitty Pryde's teacher gave him more reason to be a better man than pining for Jean Grey ever did. Then Claremont sort of ruined it by trying to get lightning to strike twice, having him do it with Jubilee.
Quote:And Hugh Jackman was an awesome Wolverine, he still is when given good material. The failure really is the over exposure. There can be too much of a good thing and Wolverine adopts so many hats it's impossible to believe he can be a stand up Avenger, a merciless X-Men assassin and a teacher of kids.
