Stuff On My Desk - Wolverine

So, was Adamantium invented by Adam Ant? Discuss.

I have stuff, and some of it is on my desk.

Time for yet another slightly nicked nicknack from my workspace.

He’s Wolverine, bub, the adamantium-laced badass. He’s the best there is at what he does, but what he does ain’t very nice. I lost count of how many times I heard Wolvie recite that spiel during my days as a fan of the X-Men comic book, but now I see how vague it is out of context. It could mean he sells meth disguised as Mr. Rogers or that he cheats at checkers.

This is a Burger King Kids Meal toy from the X-Men: Evolution animated TV series that ran from 2000-2003 (click on the image for a closer look). For those only familiar with the live action version of the character played by Hugh Jackman, you’ll notice this Wolverine has a flashier sense of fashion. Obviously, a character who looks cool on the comics page can look like a mom’s basement-dwelling social reject in a realistic setting, hence Jackman doesn’t wear spandex or the Batman mask on steroids.

In any case, I’m still not playing checkers with him.
