Where have you gone Wolverine fans?

#1 Posted by IrishX (2355 posts) - - Show Bio

I was just wondering if there were any Wolverine fans on ComicVine anymore. Of course I'm not talking about people who used to be a fan of his when he was "cool" and now that it's not cool, dislike him or just like him less or whatever. I've heard plenty of times from the people who liked Logan back when and why they don't now so that is not what I'm looking for here.
 
I've only been visiting the site about three years now and I can honestly say I never noticed many here but now I'm curious if there are any left at all. Have you been chased off the site because all the hatred he receives? Let me know if your out there...

He's in so many titles they don't have time to post anymore, always reading

I love Wolverine, he's one of my top five favorite characters. I know a lot of people hate him because he's "everywhere" but it really doesn't bother to be honest. I'm enjoying his current series and looking forward to seeing how he does in Wolverine and the X-Men!!! ^_^

I'll fill you in on a secret. Although I don't read mutant books, I really do love the concept and character of Wolverine. There. I've said it.

I'm a fan of the character but that doesn't mean I have to like the extreme over exposure

I like Wolverine, I just think sometimes they give him insane power and fighting skill upgrades, some of which are unnecessary, nobody wants to read about a character that can't be beat. On the other and I tend to enjoy his solo series and X-Men books. I could care less about him on the Avengers though....I still think Its a marketing ploy to be honest

I'm not so much a fan, but Im a fan of his books right now because they are well written, x-force and wolverine are two of marvels best books. x-23 and Daken are really good to. I'm just a fan of good comics not crossover bs.

I liked him better when he was that old soldier with an unknown past and an empty beer can in his hand.

I enjoy wolverine and uncanny x-force, the other books don't seem to feature him as much, present arc excepted. He looks and sounds awful in the current anime.

The thing about this is most of Wolverine rouges have the exact same abilities and skills he does.Most of them have healing factor,most of them are top level martial arts.Some even have those characters but super strength or speed on top of it so...

One of my faves and one of the reasons I got into comics when I was a wee lad some odd 15 years ago.

You can be a fan and still get tired of over exposure. Where did this notion that you have to want to see him every damn time you open a comic to be considered a fan come from?

I've never bee a fan of Wolverine. I always felt he was overated and overused.

As a result of the Schism event, Cyclops killed them all.

Thank you for the responses everyone.

He's always been one of my favorite characters and always will be. He's just one of the most interesting characters in the marvel universe in my opinion, but he does get a little too much overexposure. However that doesn't make him a bad character. He'll always be a classic and probably the most loved of the X-Men. Definitely for me anyway.

I am a fan of wolverine! He may get used a lot to some but it really depends on what you read, and unless you read avengers, X-Force, X-men and all associated titles his usage shouldn't bother so many people. I don't mind seeing him in a lot of books, for me that just makes the books more interesting. I don't care for Avengers, so wolverine won't make me pick up their books. My only Gripe about wolverine is the way he's written sometimes, his fighting abilities are inconsistent. Daken has also grown on me, I have come to like and respect him. You never know what he's going to do next!

This really. He was the character that got me into comics, and since none of my friends read comics back then, I never knew it was 'cool' to like him, and I don't really care if it's now 'cool' to not like him, he remains my favourite comic character hands down. As for the over-exposure, I guess for people who actually have the money to get all these books every month (or really believe he doesn't belong in the Avengers, don't know personally as I don't follow them) it might be annoying. But I guess he's there like with Spidey or Bats being everywhere because he seems to sell books. In any case I don't mind much about it either way as I don't follow (nor do I have resources to follow) every book in Marvel (kudos to those who can) I just get the books with the characters or groups that appeal to me, which as relates to Logan are Wolverine, x-men and uncanny x-force. That's it, so this over-exposure thing is a non-issue to me, since I don't see it in my reading list, so it's not something I bother or really care about.

Plus, I'm enjoying the new directions Aaron is taking Logan, a steady lover, having him broken down and rebuilt emotionally, a headmaster, I'm looking forward to the new character growth for Wolvie.

#32 Posted by NX (307 posts) - - Show Bio

I do have one question. Isn't wolverine invencible or does he have a weakness?

#33 Edited by sionb (62 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm still a fan of Wolverine...even though him being used in so many books does get tiring.

#34 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm still here. He's grown a little distant on me, but I'm still here!

#35 Posted by Joygirl (19522 posts) - - Show Bio

I like him still, I get sad that he has so many h8rzz now. He's not my favorite or anything but he'll always have a special secret place deep down in the deep dark depths of my deep places. He's my favorite of Marvel's "popular" characters.
