All it means is that he's a good con-man. The only interesting scene of this entire arc was when Mysterio tricked Wolverine.


I hated the Mysterio issue. I felt like not knowing why Wolverine had become a pacifist was more interesting and better left unexplained.

You've seen this same exact storyline at least a dozen times in various westerns. I felt the Mysterio thing was at least an original idea.

Aye - it is the act of throwing someone or something out of a window.

The Mysterio thing was pretty much the same thing Mysterio does every time he's in a comic, the only thing different about the OML issue was that it was more brutal than usual.

And it's not like writers don't pull from various influences every time they sit down to write something. To say this is bad because of it is kind of weak. It's a western influenced story, it has western tropes. BFD.

Having not read the book yet, he can dislike for what ever reason he wants. I didn't like Open Range because it was just like Unforgiven. I don't see that here really, but it's a valid criticism.

In other words, you sound like Punchy.

So, stfu.

But Old Man Logan is just like Unforgiven.

Which is why it's awesome.

No it has similar tropes. Open Range sucked because it was the exact same story.
