Wolverine #66: Old Man Logan (2008)

Wolverine #66
Wolverine #66

This future, almost elseworlds style, story features a very subdues Logan.  The heroes have fallen and Wolverine, although still alive, has a family and refuses to fight.  He farms on his land with his son and daughter and wife.  He owes rent, that he does not have, to the Banners.  The Hulk’s Granddaughter and her two sons.  One of the best scenes in the whole book is where Wolverine imagines popping his claws (which he hasn’t done since he vowed not to the daythe heroes died) and gutting the older Hulkling.  Since its just a daydream it doesn’t have any repercussions – infact Wolverine gets beat up and they give him one week to come up with the rent.  Hawkeye shows up and offers Wolvie a job, helping deliver goods, since Hawkeye is almost completely blind he needs a guide.  So begins the story – not too bad and of course when the book caught on they reprinted the comic with the cover where Wolverine spills the guts of the elder Hulkling.  It’s very graphic – and like I said – didn’t really happen.  But an interesting story thus far…

Anyways, have a good weekend!  See you on Monday!

Hulk Thermos and Soup Container (2008)

Let’s keep this lunch theme going for another day 🙂

Hulk Thermos

This is a Hulk Thermos that was picked up for me at Target.  It combines the classy-ness of the silver thermos and the Awesome-ness of the Hulk!  It’s Clawesome!  When you press the button at the top the cover flips open and reveals a hidden straw.  It’s actually pretty neat!  I’m jealous of what the kids now adays get.  All this cool merchandise, they get ipods and cell phones as soon as they come out of the womb and to top it all off – they don’t get spanked anymore!  But they are forced to still eat soup – which is a punishment in itself – because soup really sucks.  But if you have to eat soup, at least you can store it in here!  The Hulk soup container!  Still silver, so still clawesome!  With the images coming from the new Hulk movie you’ll seem in the now and still up to the minute!
