There's no denying that Wolverine is insanely popular- I'd be an idiot to even attempt it. When asked, most people will say that their favourite mutant is Wolverine (especially if the person you're asking is male and is probably trying to make a good impression), and he's one of the top five heroes that Marvel really markets (the others being Iron Man, the Hulk, Spider-man and Thor, though Thor is sometimes replaced by the Thing for some reason). I'm not trying to say that I dislike Wolverine because he's popular; that would be a really stupid reason to like or dislike anything- I just don't see the appeal. People all over the world find his gruff, edgy, masculine attitude charming, and I really don't understand why.
Maybe it's something about my taste in men. I know Wolverine (portrayed by Hugh Jackman) is quite popular with the ladies, actor aside, and I suppose he's a fairly attractive individual, but he doesn't seem like anything special. Sure, there's the whole 'undying, passionate devotion' angle from his obsession with Jean Grey, which is something many people find desirable and admirable. But I don't really give a damn about rude, scruffy people who exude more testosterone than a locker room full of sweaty quarterbacks. There's the 'badass' factor, I suppose, and I'm told Wolverine is very notable for this, but I'm more of the Deadpool type of badass, as opposed to the overly-masculine antics of characters like Wolverine. And while he does get some of the best lines and sometimes has some pretty decent writers, it doesn't really do much to sway my opinion.
All of what I mentioned above would usually lead to me taking a neutral stance on the character, but what actually tips the scales is Schism. Yeah, it was horrendous in so many ways that I don't really know where to start. While Wolverine has, in the past, proven himself to be kind of douchey at times (like that phase during the 90s where he called everyone 'frails'...), his sudden decision to protect the innocence of mutant children was so incredibly out of character and poorly executed that I simply lost all patience for the character. Not only does that new motivation better suit Cyclops, whose personal history would make him the logical 'defender of the innocent', but Wolverine has never really been the type of person that's oriented towards preserving the innocence of the younger generations. If anyone reading this can actually provide me with sound proof to the contrary, I will completely retract that statement.
The icing on the cake was Wolverine's decision to name his new school The Jean Grey Institute of Higher Learning. Dick move, man, dick move.
So in summary, I do not like Wolverine.
