1) He's Canadian
OK. I know what you're thinking. Your thinking
is usually thought of as being a very nice loft conversion sitting on top of a wild party.
But no. On the contrary, my friends! In the past this fairly flat
country has managed to produce some really remarkable people like Dan Aykroyd, Pamela
Anderson, John Candy, plus that man who stars in that film where his son f*cks
2) He's Part Metal, Part Mental
Well let's face it. If you ever think about some nut-job with pieces of metal attached to their limbs, whose name normally springs to mind? Terminator, perhaps? Robocop? Or what about Professor Stephen Hawking? Me? Nah! Forget about these wannabe's. In my eyes
Logan will always be my main metal
mutant nut-job. No matter how much Marvel will play about with his past!
For someone who keeps on saying he's a loner, old mutton chops sure join's an awful lot of teams, doesn't he? I mean, you don't have to be Daredevil to see how many he's joined! Ranging from The Avengers to The X-Men, Wolverine is the type of chap that teams-up with the best of them. And do you know why? Simple really. People just love being around him. People like what he does. People like how he does it. And people like how he's the best at what he does. Playing dominoes.
4) He's Short
All the short people of the world really need
And do you know why they need him around? I tell you why. Because without him all the
tall people of the world will look down on them and frown as
they have done with such heroes as Ray Palmer's Atom, or Hank Pym's Ant-Man.
And we can't have that now, can we? That's... errrr... size-ist!!!!
Hey! Can you name someone who can rock a pair of sideburns better than
Logan? Not many, is there? And
that's another reason why Marvel has to bring him back. Without him, sideburns
will be marginalized by Victorian villains and heavy metal guitarists.
6) He Must Sound Like Clint Eastwood, Right?
Yeah-Yeah-Yeah. I know what you're saying to yourself. Of course he must sound like Clint! Especially since Clint-light -- also known as Hugh Jackman (or Huge Hampton in
-- plays Logan in the films. But
please remember, folks, Hugh is only six years older than Logan
in comic book terms. Plus I'm sure that when Len Wein and John Romita Senior
created Wolverine back in 1971, they weren't thinking of an Australian kid with
nicely quaffed hair. Know what I mean?
So there you have it, dear reader. My reasons for bringing back
