Comic Book Knowledge

"You know that super-hero with the knives on his hands?"
"Wolverine?"
"No, not him..."
"X-23 or Daken?"
"No..."
"Badger?"
"No..."
I pull up a picture of Wolverine and show it to the person in question.
"Yeah, that's him."
"That's Wolverine."
"Are you sure?"
 
I get questions like this daily in real life.

Thank you for sharing that.  This is why I get headaches talking too much mainstream comics.

@Jotham:  I think that is what he meant, since the power girl Badger is really new.

LOL So he didn't know who Wolverine was? I knew he was long before I started reading comics and he is not even my favorite superhero.

@Jotham: There is This badger and That Badger.  The one in Power Girl couldn't be the one, since he is less then a year old and IE said he tries to bring up the old badger in conversation, once a year.
 
...lol
the Badger is the line of the day.
Thanks again IE

She doesn't read comics, and she's my student worker in my office. She had a long conversation with me afterwords about why people shouldn't open their comic book toys because they're going to be worth less money.... to which I replied,
"How am I supposed to make them fight each other then?"

How does he not know he Wolverine is?  I assume that at this point in time, everyone, regardless of whether they read comics, should be aware of Wolverine.

I also would have accepted pulling out some furry porn and being like "This guy has claws and he's using them in a JACKED UP way."
