Moments That Prove Wolverine Is Secretly One Of Marvel's Funniest Characters

List RulesVote up the best, strangest times when Wolverine was actually kind of really funny.

Wolverine has undergone a strange transformation over the course of the last few decades. Fans will enjoy lesser known facts about Wolverine and the most messed up things Wolverine has done in comics. While he began as the ultimate Mary Sue, the bestest character that can never be beaten and has all the coolest powers, he’s then became reviled by comic nerds before being turned into an interesting character by writers who saw that he could actually have an interesting storyline every now and then. And all of that leads to the question: is Wolverine funny? He definitely cracks a lot of jokes, but is that a funny Wolverine or an annoying Wolverine?

Thanks to writers like Matt Fraction, Joss Whedon, and Waren Ellis, the last decade has been kind to the adamantium-clawed practical joker. Sometimes the writers have had to change his character completely to make him funny, but then other times Wolverine was hilarious just being his grumpy old self. Keep reading and vote on the best, strangest times when Wolverine was actually kind of really funny.

    Wolverine and Cyclops have never been friends. When they weren't sniping at one another over who should lead the X-Men, they were acting like teenagers while they fought over Jean (Scott's ex-wife and Logan's true love). So when the two frenemies have to fight ALL of the sentinels in Wolverine and the X-Men #40 there's some tension as to whether Logan is just going to peace out and let Cyclops handle the purple robots all by his lonesome.

    After the two heroes kill everything in their paths they share a cute moment, which is actually kind of nice.

    Aloof Is Logan's Middle Name

    Poor Kitty Pryde, not only does she have a crush on the dumbest metal Russian in the world, but she's so alone now that she's attending Xavier's School for Gifted Teens, she's stuck asking Logan for dating advice. And poor Logan.

    We all know he'd rather be out punching dudes in the face with his adamantium claws before drinking all the beers, but he's been reduced to the role of chaperone. Do you think these two will ever learn to get along?

    Logan Just Likes To Stab

    Don't you love it when you accidentally stab one of your friends and it turns out that they were possessed by a demon so you were technically helping by being a macho douchebag? Before the New Avengers can piece together a new team and a new club house, an inter-dimensional heathen begins to rip through New York, and it takes over the bodies of Doctor Strange and Daimon Hellstrom - but Wolverine doesn't know that when he stabs them right in the chests.

    If Spider-Man hadn't said anything no one would have been the wiser.

    Of Course You Know This Means War

    In a post decimation world (you know, when Scarlet Witch stripped most of the mutants of the world of their powers) it's fortuitous for 12-year-old Molly Hayes of The Runaways to still have her telekinetic abilities along with her super strength. Not only does she pose a threat to any evil mutants still lurking around, but she also packs a wallop on anyone who underestimates her. And that definitely goes for Wolverine when he tries to "save" her from a priest while she's investigating a missing MacGuffin. Wolverine pops out his claws and before you can say "snikt" she throws him into the snow of New York City.

    Logan's button on the scene feels like it was written after watching one too many episodes of Looney Tunes, but that's okay because it's funny, and who doesn't like seeing one of the strongest, coolest superheroes - ever - get his butt handed to him by a 12-year-old?
