The site won the award from X-Men Prime for the Summer 2002 Best Wolverine Site. My thanks to all who voted.
As of 20 Jul 2003 - the 50,000 visitor mark! Past landmark pics.
This is an unabashedly pro-Wolverine site. You have been warned.
My first encounter with the enigma called Wolverine began when Professor X treked up to Canada's Department H to lure away the current Weapon X - namely Wolverine himself.
I might have missed that encounter altogether had it not been for my local comic provider who knew my taste in comics. That issue came along at a time when I was, quite frankly, avoiding most super-hero type comics -- including the original X-Men team, who had zip appeal to me.
My comic dealer was a pro-Fantastic Four buff - the two of us had had past discussions on the topic of super-hero ruts. At that time, most of the current crop seemed to fall into one of basically three types:
(1) Too good to be true (Or the "I could give Mother Teresa lessons" type) - Not only did this kind catch the bad guy, they made him fold his prison napkin after dinner.
Then came Wolverine - when the comic guy called me over, he had an issue open and was pointing to one panel in particular. The one where Wolverine was punctuating his resignation as Weapon X by slicing through the tie of the man (Major Chasen) giving him lip. I was hooked.
On the side of the angels, but known to toe the line awfully close and occasionally slide over an inch or two. A guy that seemed to take more than a little pleasure at harassing and tweaking the noses of higher authority, but a guy that wouldn't give a meter maid a hassle over a parking ticket. Someone who could make a grown man afraid of the dark and still be viewed as a young girl's best friend. All that and more.
He intrigued me enough that I became a regular reader both of X-Men and, when it came along, his own comic series - a habit lasting from then until now.
1974 - 2004
Yes, it's now been over 35 years since Wolverine made his first comic appearance in November 1974 (well, if you count a shadowy cameo, October). And May 2011 marked his 37th year as an X-Man as well as the second anniversary of the opening of his 4th movie with Hugh Jackman filling his shoes.
