Personally? Probably Superman for me. When you see the eyes pop red and his face change to that distinctive look of pure rage, you know you should be scared.
I hate it too bro. Wolverine is my favorite hero, and it always lights a fuse in me when people say he can't fight (even though he is arguably the best fighter in the Marvel U, and has beaten Captain America silly multiple times, and schooled Iron Fist in a sparring fight). Wolverine writers just have to make an effort to show the skill of a guy that has 100+ years of fighting experience.
I hate those top scans. Why does so many authors make it seem like Wolverine can't fight, and he's just a hot-headed idiot with claws. Seriously, he's an amazing martial artist.
Sorry for the rant, I just hate that writing.
I don't simply because he lost to somebody with higher stats, not skills.
Superman: Dude can hear you from anywhere on the planet, can kill you in dozens of painful ways, can attack you before you even realize he's there, is invulnerable to anything you can through at him, can see you no matter where you hide (unless it's under a lead matress) and can snap your neck with a casual flick.
Martian Manhunter: Pretty much the same as Superman...only replace the super hearing with telepathy.
@wolverine08: I would haha, but I chose Superman because even though Wolverine is very frightening, at least you can run from him. you still have a slight chance of getting away. if a bloodlusted Superman is after you, it's over. no running, no hiding, no flying away in helicopters, and no human weapon can stop him.
@batmannflash: That scene with Superman killing Billy almost killed me. And it was utter BS too. Would Billy with the power of gods really just stand there and get brain nuked? And on Superman's part - I get that you're evil dude, but that was unprovoked. Not to mention, HE'S A KID! He was my age! Superman, the Child Killer! Yahoo!
@sog7dc: Old Man Logan, Wolverine by Claremont, Enemy of the State, Wolverine Origin, he's also in Astonishing X-Men Vol. 3 by Joss Whedon (which is amazing!). I like his current series "Savage Wolverine." The digital comic Wolverine: Japan's Most Wanted Issue 1 came out like last week. And I thought it was cool.
@akindoodle: No I think Billy was in his human state since he's grown older. Would make sense since Damian Wayne's in his late teens and is Nightwing. That's why Superman froze his mouth shut, so he wouldn't say "Shazam" and become Captain Marvel.
@sog7dc: he killed Billy in Injustice the video game
@sog7dc: Injustice. IT WAS BULLSH*T and killing a child (given, in the form of a man) is not something even a crazy, evil, bloodlusted Superman should be doing. Hell, there are villains that don't stoop to that level. The thing that got me the most was.... oh God.... the others just stood there and watched. AS A 15 YEAR OLD BOY'S HEAD WAS BURNED THROUGH. LIKE PAPER! The whole point of the game was that SM had a justifiable reason for going Hitler on the world but I don't think you're justified in any way for killing a kid who just thought you were a tad bit out of line. It was Clark and Billy. Why Billy? Why not Barry? Why Clark? Why not this version of Diana? I can see that crazy b*tch doing something like this
You should try get Old Man Logan, Wolverine mini series by Chris Claremont, Wolverine:Origin, Wolverine:Weapon X by Jason Aaron, Wolverine: Enemy of State, Wolverine: Weapon X by Barry Windsor Smith, a Wolverine: The Return of Weapon X by Frank Tierri, Wolverine Goes to Hell, and Wolverine: Back to Japan.
Even though these are all great Wolverine stories, I'd highly recommend that you begin with Wolverine:Origin because it shows the beginning of Wolverine's life as a young boy , and how he became the man he is.
@akindoodle: dictators in the past have killed children for stepping out of line. the whole point of Injustice was that Superman thought he was protecting the Earth. When someone complains about his methods, chances are they are going to join the other side and try to stop him. Superman, like dictators, do not want opposition so since Billy was against him, he had to be taken out. It's obviously wrong, but Superman thinks that by doing it, no can stop him in his mission to protect Earth. And everyone stood there because Superman kills anyone that stands against him. Some of them thought Superman was correct, some are just trying to survive.
