You haven't asked anyone to juggle your balls in their mouth in this thread. :wink:

Topo's thread gave some examples of its kickassery.

Some of mine:
Hawkeye and Wolverine getting betrayed.
Hank Pym's skeleton.
Why Logan stopped being Wolverine.

This is the best thing that I've read from Millar.

putting aside my total disdain for the most over used and officially largest one note character in comic book history, I can't believe that this "Elseworlds" tale would even be in the same ballpark as the sprawling epic that was War of Kings.

WoK has changed the landscape of a piece of the Marvel Universe. It's scale was not only epic, but executed damn near flawlessly! It can't compare to an old Wolverine story that builds up to him slicing dicing... again.

Yeah, that's my major problem with the character. Wolverine is like our buddy Chuck --- he gets pissed off and starts slicing shit up.

Let me rephrase. He has turned into a one note character. When he was first created, he was mysterious, constantly evolving, growing from the feral monster that he had allowed himself to become, into the human being he really wanted to be.

But in the last fifteen years or so, he's had nothing done that has been that life changing for him. Yes, he remembered his entire past. Wow. What does he do with that knowledge. Goes around and kills the people that did him wrong.

He's like Marvel's version of Dirty Harry, to me (only instead of getting to see him once a month, we now have to see him in at least three books a week).

And for the record: I love the Dirty Harry movies. :-)

I am the other way, I thought War Of Kings was good, a solid 6 out of 10, but this story was incredible.

It's the best Wolverine story I've read in years.

I can agree with that. It's also the first Wolverine story I have read since the Claremont/Miller mini-series. (1982)

Old Man Logan had more emotional highpoints. The moments that I mentioned are classic and they stayed with me, long after I had read the story. Plus, it had better art. Got to stick with Old Man Logan.
