Hi, I’m The Guy Who Didn’t Like ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

Untitled-1

Everyone loves X-Men: Days of Future Past. It's a box office hit, already raking in more than $500m worldwide. It's a critical hit, earning a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. And it's a popular hit, at least judging anecdotally from reactions on Twitter and Tumblr and that cool new social media platform you don't know about yet because you're old.

I'm the guy who didn't like Days of Future Past. Sorry, everyone. I know it's tempting to dismiss such responses as hipster contrarianism, but I honestly didn't want to be that guy. Life is more fun when you enjoy stuff. So here's why I have to be that guy.

Spoilers follow.

The X-Men Episode Guide 4×05: ‘Proteus, Part II’

X-Men Episode Guide 4x05: Proteus Part II

The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series.

This week: The battle against Proteus continues, and we get some daddy issues that are way over the top, even by X-Men standards.

Colin Furze Builds DIY Wolverine Claws That Pop And Retract, Just Like A Real Mutant’s [Video]

Claws01

I think we've all had a time in our lives when we wish we had Wolverine's claws, right? I mean, sometimes you just get so frustrated that you just really need the ability to stab something with six razor-sharp Adamantium claws from your knuckles, like when you're stuck in traffic, or when a giant racist robot kills your best friend Morph. We've all been there. The thing is, all of us haven't gone out to the garage to build a fully working set of Wolverine claws that both pop and retract.

That's because all of us are not Colin Furze, whose demented mechanical genius has led him to be best known for souping up a mobility scooter to get speeds of 70 miles per hour. Over the past few days, he's launched into a series of "DIY X-Men" projects, starting with the Wolverine's claws.

Mel Gibson Almost Played Wolverine In A Movie, In Case You Were Wondering What The Darkest Timeline Was

Mel Gibson as Wolverine by Miles Teves

The image above may look like something from one of the stranger, more celebrity-obsessed corners of DeviantArt, but it is not. It is real. Frighteningly real. See, back in 1997, when the success of Braveheart was still fresh in everyone's mind (and three years before the X-Men would get the big-screen treatment), Mel Gibson was approached to play Wolverine on film.

Obviously, this never actually happened -- the role would eventually go to Hugh Jackman, who would spend the next 14 years alternating between snikting, singing and appearances on Monday Night Raw -- but it went far enough that there was concept art produced by Miles Teves showing just what Gibson would look like in the role.

Welcome To The Ex-Men, Wolverine: The Unlikely Death Of Marvel’s Most Unkillable Character

Untitled-1

Wolverine, he dead. Almost. Soon. Soon. In a shock headline-grab, the folks at Marvel have announced that the big hand and the little hand have ticked all the way back around to "kill off a major character" o'clock, and the name they picked out of the hat this time was "James Howlett". And after asking around the office someone confirmed that they're pretty sure that's Wolverine. No, not Magneto. Not Rogue. 94% sure that's Wolverine.

So we come here today at ComicsAlliance not to praise Wolverine, but to promote his comic. But please note that this article contains spoilers for the forthcoming Marvel series Death of Wolverine, and the spoiler is that they kill Wolverine. Wolverine dies, you guys. No more Wolverine.

Jason Aaron: The ‘Wolverine And The X-Men’ Exit Interview

Wolverine and the X-Men #42, Marvel Comics

Since Wolverine and the X-Men first launched back in 2011, it's been one of the most consistently entertaining books on the stands, and easily one of my picks for a high point in the entire history of the franchise. The idea of Wolverine taking over the school and teaching a gaggle of misfit kids might seem like it's ripped from a sitcom, but the character driven action of this book has been second to none. Now, after 43 issues (and several years writing Wolverine in one form or another), writer Jason Aaron has brought his run alongside artists Nick Bradshaw, Ramon Perez, Pepe Larraz and Chris Bachalo to an end.

To mark the occasion, I spoke to Aaron about the foundation of his take on Wolverine, how he wanted to develop the character over the years, and how his ideas changed to reflect the changes in his own life -- which, sadly, did not involve adamantium claws.
