@biswaboxz: Oh, for Christ sakes!!!
OML was Millar trying to get away with not writing Wolverine in a Wolverine book. How is it possible that there are people who still dont get that?
Yeah sure !!!!! U read Wolverine comics , right ? FYI most of them are bloodlusted or wolverine surrounded in bloodbath . And if i am not wrong Millar had written more than enough comics like that . Reference Wolverine MKS , Civil War , Nemesis , Kickass .
So yeah u are right Millar wanted to get away from Logan , since he never wanted to write Wolverine . LOL
EOTS had Logan turned into a generic Hand ninja for most of it, with big parts of the story told in other character's perspective. Hell, there are issues where he barely appears, in that story!
Prisoner Zero is a story about a prisoner in a concentration camp who can't die. It's not a Wolverine story though. That character acts nothing like Logan and there's no way it fits in his continuity.
OML stars a character that doesn't act like Wolverine, doesn't talk like Wolverine, doesn't even look like him! Hell, it should be a Cable story! At least fans could say he looks like him.
No, Mark Millar never wanted to write Wolverine. He wanted the notoriety of writing him. His Wolverine books always had as little Logan as he could get away with which, apparently, is no Logan, since there's bunch of people tripping over themselves to congratulate him for his terrible stories and stay true to the saying that a fool and his money are easily parted.
Yeah That's what i expected u tell things like that . I realize that Millar tries to give new dimensions to Logan's character with his story lines . And that's one of the reasons , i like them the most . Majority writers play with him around with his "own demons " , "Weapon X " and "his whole women protegees" agendas all the time , that made him a one dimensional character more or less .
This even retconned his origins from Loeb's and Way's run , where they even made him villain once or twice , which was even terrible to picture him like that . This showed that his whole life is made on "Weapon X" .But that's wrong whatsoever .
U should see through ur comments that shows itself that he has different talents . This shows that a character who has live through generations(180 yrs) can gather different skills through lifetimes .
EOTS showed him as "Hand Ninja" (as u referenced) who is being controlled by The Hand, which basically proves that he has those capabilities to show those skills which he already showed during Mutant Masacare , where he proved himself of who he is for the first time .
Prisoner Zero proves him that he was gone through pain and difficulties through concentration camps , to become a survivor .Your claims about him as his own character is pointless here , cause in this type of story line it showed he was a "loner" person who had gone thorugh so much pain in his life .
OML showed not only his suffering . But it also showed that he can have a family and live a happy life but his own instincts and demons would haunt him throughout his life , cause's he is Wolverine .
Wolverine was basically a archetype of Clint Eastwood and Millar wanted him to write him like that but he also wanted to give him a new dimensions by adding a old man similar to William Bunny from Unforgiven in OML . Therefore like i said b4 YEAH SURE he didn't want write him because he wanted to get away from him LOL
