@super_soldierxii: So you're pretty much under the opinion that Yost jobs Logan to make his Spider characters look good in an inconsistent fashion? What about how he did with Kaine, though? He did give Logan fair treatment in the sense Kaine wasn't able to physically defeat him under normal means and I already made mention that Logan has healed from getting stabbed or shot through the heart and continue fighting, but when it's been destroyed completely, or at least not still one piece albeit a hole or two or not, Logan's been downed like when it was blown up in his chest. I've said it before, you're one of the only people I'll say has a better understanding of Logan than I do, so I would like your opinion if being stabbed and sliced into two pieces by a 12 inch+ venomous stinger by a 25 tonner possessed by a bloodthirsty spider entity?
Actually, I think writers have a choice. And when a "Spider" character brawls with Wolverine, that choice comes into play. Do you exhibit Wolverine's "purported" martial abilities, or do you highlight Kaine's/Spider-Man's/SpOck's superior stats ...
Yost obviously opts for the latter. In that, I feel he's out to prove a point and leave his 'mark' on the debate.
The first panel you see Wolverine go all "Raar!!" like a mindless neanderthal and lunge while Kaine spews off dialogue looking all slick. To me, that sucks and is a little cheap. I think Logan's character is meant to have a little more depth than that. I honestly think that if Kaine brawled with Wolverine, he should lose 6/10 times. Mind you, I don't think the fight was poorly written and I don't take exception to it. I enjoyed it. But Kaine cutting Wolverine's heart in two is the easy way out ... because Wolverine doing likewise and bye bye Kaine. In a brawl, Wolverine's skill coupled with his enhanced physicals and durability make brawling with him a bad idea for Kaine. My opinion hasn't changed.
So yeah ... Wolverine does job from time to time ... courtesy of his healing factor. Yost takes full advantage of that. Possibly the worst power to give a purported top tier martial artist in comics if they're meant to display any modicum of skill.
I have no problems with Wolverine dropping (at least temporarily) to that blow ... it's not Logan's damage soak that's gimped. It's his ability to cause damage that's butchered all to hell.
