Greetings True Believers! I thought I'd post one of my favorite bits from Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men. Logan gets mind-whammied and he reverts to a simpler time. It's astonishingly funny! Enjoy!



Suggest Tags: char: logan/james howlett/wolverine, title: astonishing x-men, publisher: marvel comics, creator: joss whedon, creator: john cassaday



Long story short, Cassandra Nova has attacked the X-Men. Peter's fighting shadows, Scott's zonked out, Beast has become a beast and Logan has....lost his Loganiness. Danger and Ord are running around too.





Love Cassaday's art on this.



























And he snaps back. I love Logan's dialogue while he was in Little Lord Fauntleroy mode. I hope everyone enjoyed!

That was definitely a hilarious moment in that book. :D

LOVE Astonishing--I just got Whedon's whole run and it's neck-in-neck with the Morrison run as my favorite X-story. It's what made me want to try to get into the more "classic" and the current stuff with X-Men. :)

I love the implication that Booze is to Logan what Spinach is to popeye.

I really like that the story is referencing Origin, Wolverine's origin story. The Howlett name, the old-timey manner of speech, Logan being drunk... but I don't recall young James being that much of a pansy.

I'm waiting ever so impatiently for my Astonishing omnibus to come from Amazon.com. This makes it far less annoying of a wait. :)

It's a nice callback to "Origin" as well, especially the references to 'Logan' - and how he feels most comfortable reacting to Kitty, who physically resembles his beloved Rose.

So far, this is the one X-Men story I've seen that actually makes good use of Logan's official origins. Up 'til now, I would have been perfectly happy if his origins had REMAINED secret, thank you very much, or we'd stuck with that now-discounted one where he was a member of a Native Canadian tribe who got cast out and raised by wolverines. Overall, Wolvie doesn't NEED an origin - he worked perfectly well without one for decades. This, though, is damn funny, so I give it a pass. 'The moose has my scent again! O!' 'I've claws, you know.' 'Say mine is the best or I shall be cross all day!' Comedy gold.
Who is the 'oriental' girl, though? I'm not sure I've seen her before.

That was kinda awesome, wasn't it? And Wolverine being awesome doesn't happen nearly enough these days.

Okay, I'm not an X-fan, but this does concern someone from Morrison's run, so it's an exception. I rather like this. And this is actually a lot more fluid and cartoony--and I mean that as a compliment--than Cassaday's PLANETARY work, which surprises me and pains me to say.

I also can't stand Wolverine. But this is...cool.

It's sequences like this that remind me A) How frustrating I find Whedon's humor, which always seems to rely on characters acting out of character, but most B) I love, love, love Cassaday's art. It's the art that really sells this section. And his Kitty is gorgeous. So to speak.

Like his cast of stock characters, you mean? And all of them talking the way he, RL, talks?

*can't stop laughing* I think Wolverine is pretty cool in general, but sometimes he gets on my nerves. Now, James on the other hand... well, let's just say this is beyond cute and leave it at that. Yay, Whedon! (Actually, the Logan/James dichotomy here kind of reminds me of Whedon's own Spike/William. Best use of the Origins backstory I've seen so far.)

HA! Thank you for posting this. I wonder why they don't let Whedon do the next X-Men movie, or at least the "Prequel".
