After all the build up, yeah, I will admit. I am disappointed.

Very. It's like you took everything from Wolverine's clawed villains and mashed it together.
Something original, please?

And are those WARTS? Warts on a man with a healing factor?

I guess after all the build up, the reveal was going to be disappointing, but still...damn that's stupid.

Wonder when people will remember that Canada is America too?

And damn it, now they killed Omega Red? It's not like Wolverine has to many repeat rogues!

Well, that's pretty stupid. Don't care about Wildchild, but WTF is the point of building a character up then instantly killing them?

Do people really call people from Canada and South America Americans? I'm not trying to be snarky, I'm just curious.

Date: 2009-08-26 07:16 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Probably not.

In general from what I've seen, when one refers to Americans, they're referring to the United States in some fashion.

What annoys me about the Canada line is that it's presented like him being from Canada is a correction of fact than offhand joke.

Sometimes yeah.

The whole continent is called America, so we all are Americans, even if not from USA.

That "American = from the States" thing baffled me the first time I found it but I got used to it over time.

I think the use of the term "American" to refer primarily to individuals from the United States of America may be in large part because "United Statian" sounds really fucking weird when you say it out loud, and even looks strange written down, assuming I even spelled it right (and that it's even a real term, which I strongly doubt). I wish I knew of a better term to use for persons from the U.S.A., so that "American" could be used more widely for all individuals from the continents of North America and South America without mass confusion...

Mostly, I see 'yankee, yanqui, gringo' used to refer to United Statians (Unitarians? The U.S.S.R. had it so much better--'Soviet' sounds cool) by peoples south of Texas. And I HAVE heard persons north and south of yankee borders referring to themselves as 'Americans' on occasion. I guess it would be if some patch of land in the east hemisphere started calling themselves The Grand United Kingdom of Europe and assuming all 'European' stuff referred to them.

The problem there is that things like 'yankee' are slang terms and not formal-type names like Canadian or Mexican and soforth are. Sure, it's generally not meant so rudely as many slang terms for various nationalities, ethnicities, and races around the world are, but it's still not a grammatically proper official name. Also, it's the name of a professional baseball team in the United States of America as well. Would you call a rugby team The British? I think not.

In Tijuana they teach you that if you are from a country that's in the American Continent you are by default an American, still none of us reffered to ourselves as American since that term has become synonymous with US citizen in here. However I have met some people who don't like it when you say that Americans=US citizen.

Here's a wikipedia article about it

Rest assured that this Canadian will be upset if someone tells him that he's an American. I am not a citizen of this continent, I am a citizen of this nation.

It's kind of like the whole Scottish\English\British debate..

I'm from Scotland which as part of the United Kingdom makes me British. But most people from Scotland get pretty darn annoyed if you ever refer to them as English. Despite the fact that to much of the outside world, English and British are often used as if they meant exactly the same thing.

So I can understand a lot of this..Though to me artificial national boundaries to divide people seems to cause more problems than it solves..

I keep hearing bad things about this whole Romulus thing, but if it get us rid of Lamertooth and Omega Sucks, it can't be totallt bad.

But please, tell me this Romulus guy's claw are not retractable!

Both of those characters are superior to Romulus.

And Sabretooth can actually be pretty decent when written well.

From: [identity profile]
While I generally agree to the first, Daken has surprised me so Romulus might too.

Sabretooth has been overused. He needs a reboot or death or something. But not like in X-men Forever where they decide to forget the guy is a mass murderer.

That's the one thing that's stopping me from completely enjoying X-Men Forever. Sabretooth has no business ever being on an x-team...

Omega Red won't stay dead, the X-Folk need decent villains too much. Plus his power set makes him easy to bring back.

Seeing Wolverine everywhere makes me confused about time and space...

I mean to ask:
When does the event of this comic have place? Present? Past? Future?

Because damn, I always liked Omega Red a lot :(

Has Daniel Way EVER written a good comic?

Because every time I see his name in association with a character, such as Wolverine or Deadpool, it's almost like a guarantee that what I'll see will constitute a massive exercise in Missing The Point.

He's like this year's version of Frank Tieri.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't a thumbclaw usually called... a dewclaw? The most worthless of all claws? I propose we rename this character Dewclaw.

Date: 2009-08-27 12:55 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]

Dewclaws can be a trait in mammals, birds, and reptiles, but to the best of my knowledge such animals do not have opposable thumbs, such structures being a signature trait of primates. The dewclaw is a vestigal appendage which only typically makes contact with the ground when the animal is running, and not when standing. They truthfully are not generally that useful, and in domestic dogs can sometimes be surgically removed by a veterinarian, depending upon local laws and other circumstances. A closer equivalent would be if he had a small vestigal claw on his wrist or ankle, I believe, although a dewclaw is probably the closest thing that the animal species in question have to a thumb. Regardless, renaming him Dewclaw for the hell of it would be hilarious!

hahahaWHAT. 39 issues in and this title still sucks. Wolvie should have stayed mysterious with a few stories of him fighting Nazis for fun.

This pretty much calls for a post of the WWII crossover between Wolvie and the girl from W.I.L.D.C.A.T.S. whose name is on the tip of my tongue. I have it in trade, so I don't think it'll scan well, but I'll see what I can do.

Stunning art.

How many swords are called Muramasa? There's one in the Megaman Battle Network games/manga.

Since Muramasa swords are "linked" to Sengo Muamasa, a famous Japanese swordsmith of legend...I'd say a shit ton.
