    Though it is a nice read, this story could use more familair faces then just Marverick. Somehow Dolores ands Jeff start to become a bit mweh.
    Though the writing and art is quite okay.

    I think it is super funny how manly this book wants to be. It's like an outdated cliché of masculinity from the 1990s.

    Thank you. I have been waiting for someone else to say that since they spoke about having "a duffel bag full of regrets" in about issue three or something.

    I do not have a problem with books being manly. What's the problem with that? Wolverine has always been quite macho and manly, that's what the fans like.

    90s were highest selling point for X-Men. Whats your point? People love what Wolverine does since XAS.

    Wolvierine has lived enough years to transcend this persona

    Real Wolverine like him as the macho character he is. That character made him so popular.

    Wolverine is probably not the book or character for you then. If I can offer some advice here that might be helpful.

    It is not manly is more angsty than anything. Why does he act like he has a stick stuck in his ass all the time, He is living in paradise, has a lot of sex, his son and daughters are alive, Silver Fox, Marico, Kurt, Jean, Jubelee, Kate, Maverick are all alive, why is he so grumpy.

    Ask Chris Claremont or Larry Hama who really defined his character. That’s just how he is. It’s not like this characterization just came out of nowhere. It’s pretty established. Logan is a mean, old, grumpy cuss of a man… er, mutant.

    Now… if you’re saying “but why hasn’t he changed now that he’s living in paradise,” I think Percy has been pretty clear about that and explained it in both interviews and alluded to it in the book itself: He doesn’t trust it.

    He was less grumpy when he was a teacher in the X mansion a few years ago and mutants where on the path to extinction than now that theay are all back to life and living in paradise, that is note manly, that is a petulant manchild.

    Exactly. Logan is poster child for being a pessimist realist. I mean the man is over a hundred years old and he's lived long enough to know that happiness is fleeting. And as wonderful as Krakoa's gifts are Logan doesn't want to drop his guard when the sh*t hits the fan like it always does.
