Wolverine Really Isn't As Cool As You Think He Is

Wolverine has been a comic book fan darling since he appeared in Incredible Hulk #181 about a thousand years ago, but it’s time to face the facts: Wolverine sucks. He’s not the worst comic book character in history or anything as hyperbolic as that (that would be Deadpool), but he’s definitely not great.

Logan shouldn’t even be in consideration for your long list of favorite comic book characters, and if he is then you need to read more comic books. While it may have been fun to see Wolverine murder everyone he came across throughout the '90s and early 2000s, the bloom is off the rose and it’s time to remove the scales from your eyes and see that Mssr. Wolverine just isn’t very cool.

There’s nothing wrong with liking Wolverine, the X-Men mascot and ultra hairy tough guy, but if you live in reality then you’re aware that he’s just straight-up not cool. He’s barely even a good character. His brand of machismo laced BS may have passed for what makes an interesting character when Rob Liefield was still relevant, but that era of comics is dead and buried. It’s finally time to realize that Logan isn’t interesting or fun. There’s nothing challenging about his character and you know it’s true. Start throwing away all of your collectible Wolverine holograph covers and start voting on the points you agree with and vote down the points you disagree with. Also, to reiterate: Wolverine isn’t as cool as you think he is.
