You know you’ve been playing Marvel Avengers Alliance too long when you start yelling “FUCK OFF WOLVERINE!!” repeatedly at your laptop.
I may or may not have vented my frustration by giving Boy a mini rant about why, sometimes, Logan as a character completely sucks.
I have issues with the…
I 100% agree! I never understood why Wolverine was so popular, based on the early characterization of the character.
I’m coming to a soft conclusion- I’m starting to think, but am not convinced- that one of the reasons Batman is Superhero Number One is because he’s a power fantasy, but one that doesn’t demand a truly nuanced sense of morality. Want to punch people in the face but still feel like a good person? BATMAN! He’s the pinnacle of human achievement! He’s something you to aspire to! It doesn’t matter that the Most Prepared Man in the Universe can’t figure out how to rehabilitate one city- he’s the Good Guy because he only hits Bad Guys.
I wonder if Wolverine is something like that. He’s a good guy, and sure he acts like an immature jackass, but really it’s just that nobody, not even he himself, truly knows who he is inside. He’s Misunderstood, not just Acting Like a Pissy Teenager.
