Hama wrote Wolverine's ongoing series for seven years. It's an extremely goofy, ridiculous and frequently fun run, even if its breadth makes it tough to recommend. He nails the sort of over-the-top enthusiastic machismo that you can read as a pisstake or sincerely, and in either case it results in a pretty compelling take on the character.

Speaking of Wolverine, I was really disappointed in the Return of Wolverine issue that came out yesterday. It feels like they're just pissing around with a clone for a while until the real Wolverine just shows up and says "and that's what it means to be Wolverine, bub!" or something by the end of the mini.

Do you know what happens to a toad when itís struck by lightning?

The same thing that happens to everything else.

Iíd actually never thought that line was so bad until I watched the movie recently, and the main itís so silly to me is Storm preparing and deploying a kill quip. I guess Iím just very forgiving of quips.

also, lol everyone in X-Man talks like this

More random X-Man grabs:
This is how I learned Roger Cruz was from a Lusophone country

I find this random assortment of crowd thoughts adorable. The three cool ladies are Nate Greyís girlfriendís Marita, Bux, and Jam.

The people demand his bright blue leathers.

His girlfriends are a great influence and have him wearing hats and sunglasses

Thereís something to be said for being unfamiliar with comic nonsense, because it blew my mind when these radical anti-nationalist terrorists attacked a fucking WNBA game. I only know x-lore, so I was unfamiliar with ULTIMATUM and Flag-Smasher. Still, Iím awarding full points because I am grading this book on a curve.

Nate was created for instagram. Iím worried that heís evolved past this now as I have no working memory of his appearances post-resurrection.


Brother! Or sister!

Nate Grey only eats trash and just inhabits a rich manís vacant apartment because he can get away with it. Hero.

Nate Grey has a mind control-off with the Purple Man and it gets a little weird.

Iím unsure what ďdreepĒ means. Probably creep. Near another typo.

ChrisCross is on art now and he draws a great confused Nate.

A bit further in time, and in Gen X, Jay Faerberís started writing and itís good.

Is this bartender flirting with Nate? I think so.

The exhaustive summary on forwards no interpretation.

(Marita is by far my fave... I will miss her)
