Comic Book Superstars #2 “Wolverine”

Let's talk about Wolverine this week. What can I say, he is bad to the bone and can kick some major butt. I have to say that he is my most favorite Marvel character. He is one of those guys that you just don't want to make mad. I think that he is just a down right cool character. Let's hear what you have to say.

  1. Let me start out by saying that I like Wolverine just fine. He’s a great character. What I don’t like is how Marvel constantly try to shove him down everyone’s throat. I mean he’s on like seven different teams now?

    And don’t even get me started on the whole “Wolverine as leader of the X-Men thing”. Cyclops got screwed.

    …I’ll shut up now.

    I agree. Wolverine was fine. Then he became Marvel’s Meal Ticket. Now he’s a self-parody.
    Moral: Yes, there can be too much of a good thing.

    Wolverine? This isn’t a Hero, this is a foil for the Hulk…
    His ‘history’ is a mess of contradictions, his ‘attitude’ grows wearisome after about 3 panels, and as far as his taste in women goes, I’m not really into worshipping pedophiles…
    Actually, he seems to have moved from cradle robbing to moving in on redheads who are married to current or past temmates, but is that really much better?
    {Okay, let the flame war commence! By the way, I don’t like Mr. Data all that much, either!}

  4. Anarchangel said it best. Marvel really did shove Wolverine down the fans’ throats. He’s a cool enough character who fills the brick role very nicely. However, he’s just over-exposed.

  5. An all time baddass in the top of a very short list of guys who are super cool and can whip just about anyone.

    I think my main dislike for Wolvie came from when he beat Lobo in the Marvel/DC crossover, solely for the fact that most people who voted had probably never even heard of the Main Man.

    The healing factor is pretty cool, but his attitude has just gotten to the point where I can’t really take him seriously anymore….

  7. I’ve never seen a sustained commentary on Wolverine that was this critical..!

    For myself, I think Wolverine is a fine character. He has cool powers that are useful for closing power gaps. I don’t think he has any more inconsistencies in his storyline than other characters who receive such attention from their publishers. I have to agree with Anarchangel’s first comment on how Marvel pushes the character at every turn, and it certainly gets tiresome. They did something similar with Spider-Man for a long time as well, but Wolverine seems to have won out from the two, in Marvel’s eyes. I just wish Marvel’s writers were as enthusiastic about the rest of their line-up as they are about Wolverine. And Spider-Man, for that matter!

  8. I’ve only ever seen H. Jackman’s Wolverine. The yellow spandex was a put-off. Covers may never have been such a deterrent.

  9. wolverine is hands down my favorite character. too much exposure? noone is forcing you to read every comic. how many comics is batman in? or spider-man? wolverine has never been a pedophile. he has teen sidekicks. is batman a pedophile? also lobo is a lame ripoff of wolverine. they creator even admits it. granted bone claws shouldnt really have hurt him, but with adamantium wolvie goes toe to toe with the hulk. hes the best there is at what he does!

  10. Me likey Wolvie!That’s all from me.

  11. I think Wolverine was probably fine when he started out, but he’s turned into a bit of a walking cliche’ at this point. I also think Marvel has a lot of other, more interesting characters (Spider Man chief among them). Wolverine feels like he was made by a min-maxer for a D&D game. He’s a combat monster with a bad attitude. He’s got an oh-so-badass mysterious past (that conveniently leaves him without any true friends or loved ones, etc.), and so forth.
