The Wolverine opens in theaters today! The film follows the events that transpired after 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand. Hugh Jackman returns as the indestructible Logan, who travels to the Land of the Rising Sun, where old acquaintances pose a threat and the demons that haunt the rogue mutant come to the surface.
Those familiar with the first Wolverine standalone film were probably disappointed with the lackluster portrayal of everyone’s favorite hothead. In this sequel however, we get a chance to see him hack and slash through samurais, ninjas, and relentless villains. So, in preparation for the movie, we decided to review Wolverine’s background and see what made him such a bad-ass.
As we've seen in the past movies, including the older X-Men movies, Wolverine has made clear that he isn't someone you would want to ever piss off. Especially when he's having a cigar and a drink. Check this scene out from X-Men: First Class:
Ayan, namura tuloy kayo
Quite the eloquent animal, isn't he? Verbal abuse isn't the only thing he's good at though. Keep on bugging him, and he might just give you a taste of what he's really made of. Below are the reasons why messing with him is one of the worst ideas in the world, especially if you still value your life:
HIS ANIMAL INSTINCT
Despite what chicks may tell you, he isn’t called Wolverine for his hairy back. His combo of animalistic nature and brutish combat skills make him a living weapon of mass destruction. Some comic books even depict him with fang-like teeth, which he probably uses to titillate the ever-so-seductive Jean Grey. His agility and motor reflexes are beyond what any normal human would be capable of, making him a feral force to be reckoned with.
If you see him giving you the stink-eye at a bar, look at this image below, and ask yourself "Do I really want to receive a series of killer high-fives from this nutjob?"
What we know we do want are these real-life Wolverine claws from a modern-day blacksmith who also recreated awesome, iconic weapons such as Skyrim's axes, Cloud's Buster Sword, and Sora's Keyblade.
