We are gathered here in this moment of sadness to celebrate the life of our dear departed hero, and to share with one another those events that defined and shaped our fallen friend’s life. It’s ‘In Memoriam: Wolverine’.
Snikt! Snikt! Snikt! Sure, that may have been James’ biggest claim to fame, but, although Wolverine seemed to be a ruthless, bloodthirsty killer, I like to remember him as The Best There is as What he Does, and what he did was: ‘Justice’.
During the Marvel Civil War, when all the other heroes were losing their minds over politics and faux-safety, there was one hero who saw the disaster in Stamford Connecticut for exactly what it was: Just another villain committing a crime. So, instead of getting into the boring, unproductive political arguments, Wolverine began his hunt for Nitro, the human bomb responsible for the Stamford Disaster, and it was a moment that truly defines what made Wolverine the compelling hero he was.
We’ll never forget you Wolverine, and while we’re sure you’ll be back again someday, we’ll miss you while you’re gone. What’s your favorite Wolvie moment? Let us know in the comments.
