    Was this still a surprise? I thought that was known when the images were first released last year?

    The comic looks good. Previews for issue #77 show Osborn blackmailing the FF because the Thing beat up Daken.
    Tempted to pick it up.

    WTF? :inquisiti 

    Dude, please...like someone already stated this has been known for quite sometime. You're gonna need to bring more to the table then what you just put down.

    What exactly would you like to discuss about him?

    I guess my question would be. So What? Just another knock-off Wolverine FTL.

    Ok. So, now that you know about him. Are you interested in the character? Does he feel like a cheap knock off and/or weak addition to the Wolverine mythology to you?

    I'm open to discuss these things if you have something to add.

    If I was running things, Wolverine would have been given cancer and due his healing factor they could never fully destroy the tumors and he would die weak and trembling and then I would be done with him. Silly character used way too often.

    If you were running things Marvel would make a lot less money.

    But what exactly is it about the character that makes him silly that you don't like? I'm not suggesting that you need to like the guy, I'm just curious to know what makes, or has made, Wolverine such a turn off to people.

    My intial exposure to Wolverine, as a kid, was through Fox's X-Men animated series. I can remember thinking he was just some jerk who didn't like anyone and just liked confrontations with everyone. Then I saw him swear to avenge Morph, take on Jubilee as a surrogate daughter and then finally I saw the peaceful inner Samurai spirit from the time he was in Japan.

    That's when I decided I wanted to read about this guy and find out what the comic Logan was like. I was blown away by Chris Claremont's take on the character enjoyed reading about the tragedy that is Logan. What made him such an interesting character to me was that in spite of all the injury he can heal from and no matter how indestructible he seems, it's his emotional fragility that is the most overlooked by people.

    His tragedy is that everyone he loves, inevitably dies just for being associated with him, specifically women. He is extremely insecure about that thin line he walks between humane and beastial and fears what he may become. When he didn't remember his past, all of that was just further accentuated. Wolverine deals with pain on levels that few other heroes experience.

    Daken on the other hand, is a bastard child with a mohawk that I just can't attach myself to at all. His creation seems forced by the writers and isn't the way I would have liked to see a son of Wolverine be played out. X-23 on the other hand is a character I do enjoy. She seems more screwed up in the head than Logan at the moment. Seeing her rare moments of being human are definitely treats for me.

    I think Daken and Son of Hulk should meet a very unfortunate demise.

    The Wolverine Corps! (based on the Thor Corps, not Green Lantern)

    I'm afraid I haven't been reading any of the Dark Avengers stuff, but I am a little sad that "bad Wolverine" gets the brown costume that I always liked better than the yellow and blue.

    Isnt that Xforce now?

    Frankly I liked x 23 as the unoficial daugther of wolverine, seeing her screwed up etc, she seemed like she was gonna get the reigns of wolverine. and quite probably the reason I bougth every xmen she was in.....for a while anyway...

    daken, I simply dont care about him, he seems like some punk who they just created because they couldnt think of anything else.

    Kinda sad considering thats what I think half the marvel universe is.

    Wolverines always been my fave X-Man.Call it stereotypical if you like but he's a great character and hes badass.

    My fave Wolverine knockoff is X-23.She's so cute and badass.Well,shes cute when shes not being portrayed as wearing hardly any clothes.Thats just sexy.

    I like X-Men Evolution X-23 the best.That was when she was introduced by the way.

    Escalation, power creep, and sickening overexposure.

    Nitro blew him down to a skeleton and he basically shrugged it off shortly thereafter.

    For a "loner" he sure is on a lot of teams. He's the "go-to" character for crossovers...constantly.

    Marvel pushed the character too hard and too often, purely as a marketing gimmick as opposed to telling good stories with him. Wolverine: Origins was a stunning letdown. All we learned was, "born wealthy, mom cheated with the gardener, was a lumberjack, killed some redhead accidentally." Hoo ha.

    I've been hearing good things about Dakken, actually. From people who don't like Wolerine and are on record saying they hate his creator. Been meaning to look into him.

    And I love X-23. Have both her mini-series and have been meaning to read X-Force. The perfect killing machine slowly gaining humanity angle is really interesting to me.
