Ok, so im kind of a newb when u rate me as an x-men fan, but sense ive been reading the comics, ive seen a lot of wolverine. A LOT! and honestly im kind of tired of him, he has like..a bugazillion comics that star 
 
him all at the same time and not only that, atleast 3 of the four x-men movies that have been released all had to do with HIM! I think james should just sit out for a bit, or atleast minimize the amount of appearances  
 
he's made. I think his history is long enough due to his mutation and a bit out-written. Maybe he should die and daken (take his place)..who knows!

I'd rather have Wolverine become a member of every team in Marvel, become Sorcerer Supreme, and htake over the mantle of Captain America, than have him replaced by Daken,.

Maybe just take him down to his solo series and maybe 1 team book that doesn't revolve around him like keep him as the leader of x-force but take him off the avengers and regular xmen rosters

If he wasn't such a great character he wouldn't be in so many series.  I am a huge fan and I know how annoying it can be to have him be in everything but you have to appeal to your audience and the masses like and want Wolverine!

Wolverine's my favorite character and in all honesty it depends who and how he is being written at the time. Id rather have him in a team with the x-men above all else, but when it came to some of his solo series he sucked. He showed up in siege yet he didnt do crap. But with how big of a cash cow he is, MARVEL isnt gonna kill him. That means they have to stop everyother comic title he is in. X-men, new avengers, and such but they get such a profit out of majority of the comics he is in.

I am still a fan of Wolverine, but it is very common for comics to over populate comics with certain characters(Deadpool), but it is our fault because they only do it because we buy it if it has them on the cover, they have to appeal to our short attention spans.

Did you know now Bendis is even gonna have Moon Knight think he's wolverine in his new series so not even other characters solo series are safe from becoming wolverine comics at this rate Marvel will be changing their name to Wolverine comics by 2013

Who else is tired of Wolverine but contradicts themselves by creating a topic about the said character they are tired of?

#21 Edited by fACEmelter88 (600 posts) - - Show Bio

I like Wolverine but this is true he is EVERYWHERE and he is quite over exposed...and it's annoying. I'm not suggesting killing him but damn give some other mutant a chance but Wolverine's appearances need to decrease...HE'S ON 2 AVENGER TEAMS AND 2 X TEAMS...plus his multiple solo books and all his other appearances!!! He's cool but not 7 to 9 comics a month cool, I'm not crazy about Daken but he is growing on me but I do really like Laura a.k.a X-23. I really like the Ultimate comics and he's dead in that universe and they're still interesting...if he can die there and the comics can still be good I think the 616 can survive with less Wolverine appearances.
 
 
P.S: I love Deadpool and everything Deadpool.....but I have issues with my favorite character. Deadpool, like Wolverine, is everywhere and waaaaay over exposed. I like Deadpool a lot more than Wolverine and yet I feel the same way about him...too many appearances. (In Wolvies defense, at least he is on solid "adventures" unlike Deadpool who has become somewhat of a clown (read vol.1 1-69, a superb series, but this an issue for another thread or whatever.)

If you don't like a character, then you don't have to read the story. Simple as that .=) 
Besides, Wolvie is a fan fave. He's not going anywhere anytime soon! XP

i like wolverine. I am annoyed that he is everywhere. There were a time where i was sick of Wolverine. I hated when he was all talk and no walk. Like in the late eighties and early nineties, he was exactly like how Venom was. Walk around talking crap to everyone, flexing his muscles but then end up getting his butt stopped in every fight.  
 
Now ever since Bendis got a hold of Wolverine. He has really changed my mind about the dude. He gave him something that other writes just didn't do. Character Development. At first people couldn't hold a conversation with guy for nothing. Now I like how no Wolverine can hold a normal conversation Cyclops and it doesnt end being a pissing conversation about Jean. They actually talk by giving their ideas and opinions and then call it a day with no form of hostility. Plus on top of that He not sweating over jean grey anymore. he realized that there is other fish in the sea he can bang.  
 
I am sick and tired of his clone and ripoffs. X-23, Daken, Romulus...to me in my opinion they are not interesting. yes X-23 is very pretty to look at and the concept might seems interesting but overall reading about her in New Xmen and other such stories, she is just "meh".  Daken.....one of the worst superhero offsprings since Frankin Richards and Damian Wayne.  Seriously this guy needs to be killed off. it seems like noone who writes about him know what to do with this guy. I don't even think the guy who created him know where to go with this guy. Its like they wanted an X-23 counterpart and he just used as a last resort. Apart from his ridiculous origin story that is connected with Winter Soldier He starts off as a villian and then they crowbar him and Wolverine clearing their shit up and maybe Daken will come around but no wait  lets go back to a douchebag.  
 
Romulus...oh my god I can't believe his stuff is canon. I am so glad he was only in Wolverine Origins and that is cancelled.  
 
Other than that Wolverine stuff(other than Origins) has improved and Wolverine himself has also imrpoved(Unlike Spiderman) 
 
I have one question about the guy. Why the hell does he always mentor little girls and not guys? If a guy comes up and say teach me to fight like you using my mutant powers, he would without hesitation tell them to piss off but if a brunette come up to him and say show me some moves hairy guy.  Oh yeah he is quick to jump on that.  I have a friend who is a Wolverine fanatic and I always bag on him how "Wolverine is a molester and that is the real reason why Jubliee really don't want to back to the X-men. The canadian scarred her for life imitating Patrick Bateman in bed.  That is a joke y'all."

Just because Wolverine is in "every" book doesn't mean you HAVE TO READ EVERY SINGLE BOOK HE'S IN, I mean seriously, this always annoyed the heck out of me, just because Wolverine is in a few books doesn't mean you have to read them all. I'm currently reading Avengers and Wolverine's solo series, so to me he's actually only in TWO books and not "everywhere" :P And this goes for everyone who hated Deadpool being everywhere as well, if you don't like the fact he's everywhere, then just DON'T READ his books. Just because it has his name on it doesn't mean you HAVE to read it....... -___-

The thing is this.What if X-Force,Avengers and New Avengers are the ONLY books you read.That's 3 different books you have to see the same character when in half of them it doesn't even matter if he's there or not..Marvel is clearly just milking his popularity.I hated that Deadpool was appearing everywhere because he would sometimes appear in books that I was reading.I didn't know he was going to pop-up in Thunderbolts,I didn't know he was going to pop in Ms.Marvel,I didn't know he was going to pop-up in Secret Avengers and I'm not going to skip an issue because of him because that would just be asinine.Marvel simply needs to stop using the "Let's put the character in every book gimmick". Wolverine doesn't needs to be on 3 teams.Deadpool didn't deserve all of those cameos and random miniseries,all these characters don't have to have team-ups with Power Pack, Spider-Man doesn't need like 3 books at a time etc. etc.It's not like you can avoid not reading a book with Wolverine in it by avoiding comics with his name on it or avoiding team books when you know he's on the team.He pops up everywhere.

@Vance Astro: Well New Avengers and Avengers are both written by Bendis who wants to have Spider-Man and Wolverine in every book he writes now a days (don't believe me? He's even going to have Moon Knight acting like them.... -__-), so that's all Bendis' fault. As for if you were reading both X-Force and X-Men, you should know going into it that he's going to be in both books, it's kinda of obvious. But the thing that's different about Wolverine and Deadpool is that DP would literally appear in books that weren't even his, at least for Wolverine he's not literally running around popping up in random books like Iron Man or Captain America.
 
And that's not true, okay fair enough Wolverine may appear in most X-Men books like X-Men, Uncanny, and X-Force. But he doesn't appear in Legacy, and really X-Men is like Astonishing really, as in it's not really tied down to the other X-Titles and is more of a book to just pick up if you want to see the core X-Men in like Cyclops, Emma, Wolverine, Storm, ect.
 
But write now personally I'm collecting Avengers, ASM, Iron Man, Captain America, X-23, and Wolverine's main series. So really I'm only getting Logan twice a month. But I understand what you're saying, and in the end I guess it just depends on what comics you're reading.

Predictable,after seeing your posts i knew you'd say something like that 
the difference is that batbooks are self contained and there are 2 batmen,and the quality is top noch. 
and no batfan has said anything here ,stop being insecure its the marvel fans who are complaining.

I'm not particularly fond of Wolverine (I act like I hate him more than I do), but that right there is the absolute best justification I've heard for why he is a decent character. Kudos.
