i mean he's so gimmicky. he's a samurai, then he's a beserker, he represents whatever is cool and popular the time, wolverine fanboys mistake this for complexity when its makes no sense and convolutes him. he constantly insults readers intelligence why trying to portray a deep complex character and fails everytime. marvel overuses the character more than deadpool
his past is essentially a tool so writers can put whatever they want and tell stories in a past tense.
and ultimately out of all of the popular characters, wolverine has failed in every branch of media. his animated series was so bad that it got the axe after one season, his origin movie was a bomb, and his comics are among the worst especially wolverine, the best there is, which caused many people to want to kill themselves.
wolverine is essentially a character for stupid people. this is a fact.
