@Gambit1024: Totally agree with you about Liam Neeson. That's who I've always felt would make the best Doctor Strange.

I'm excited to see this change in Wolverine, because that's what good character do, they change.
@lorex, I would not want to read about a character that in 30 years has not changed one iota. Sorry. And to kind of drive in a point, when Logan found out everything in his past, we are seeing him straddling two lines, resisting the nature of who he has always believed he is (X-Force) and who he wants to believe he can be (X-Men, Avengers).
I can also think of three characters Wolverine developed a father-like bond to in the '80s: Kitty Pryde, Rogue and Jubilee. And this wasn't from some scrub writers that Hugh Jackmanify Wolverine, this was Chris effin Claremont.
I for one think Aaron has done an amazing job at forcing Wolverine to see how his past actions affect other people, especially in his latest arc. I have definitely seen Wolverine taking on more a mentor role because he wants to atone. We've seen it with Idie and even other Avengers. Wolverine knows what he is, a ruthless, savage killer, but what he is struggling with, is whether or not he can truly find redemption and become a hero and someone people look up to.
Really shocked no one mentioned the collector from the New Avengers that Bendis wrote in his early run. I thought it was interesting that a wealthy civilian wanted supervillain memorabilia and displayed it like trophies.
