The Many Wars Of Wolverine Through History

February 25th, 2012

Wolverine is one of the most popular super heroes. He has been written about in comics since the early 1970′s. During his almost 40 years in comics and movies, he has had many battles.

He first appeared in an issue of the Incredible Hulk. Even though they are both “good guys”, he and the Hulk have had many battles. In the comic Wolverine: Old Man Logan, which takes place in an alternate future, Wolverine actually gets eaten by the Hulk and then uses his claws to rip out of Hulk, killing the Hulk once and for all. But that was an alternate future.

Sabretooth, who has similar powers to Wolverine, is his half-brother. However, the two have battled each other for years. The Movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine details this troubled relationship.

Wolverine is a member of the X-Men, an elite group of super heroes. As a member of the team, he has done battle with many enemies of the X-Men, like Magneto. Wolverine has many lesser known enemies like Bloodscream, Jaggernaut, Shiva and Cyber.

With super human strength, unlimited healing abilities, a skeleton coated with adamantium and adamantium claws, Wolverine is almost invincible. His many battles in comics and movies have made him legendary.

The Ancient Religion Of The Silver Samari

February 12th, 2012

There have been many fans of the Silver Samurai who have made the claim that, because he is Japanese, he is likely a devout Buddhist. Of course, this is very well possible, although there are at this time no comics available in which this character has made any kind of claim to Buddhism. He has never been seen practicing the religion, and it is for that reason that he is likely not a practicing Buddhist.

There is evidence to back the claim that the Silver Samurai’s main religious influence and moral values are similar to the ideology of Bushido, a system of beliefs and personal ethics followed by many traditional samurai of Japanese descent. Perhaps this is also why he took on the name “Silver Samurai” and even fashioned a Samurai-like costume to wear.

Since he was not really born into Samurai culture, Kenuichio Harada likely learned about the long-extinct group of people, became completely fascinated with their values and ended up adopting the creed and look of these traditional Japanese samurais as part of his persona. While the character is shrouded in mystery and no one knows the actual truth, this is the most likely scenario and is accepted by most fans.
