When Reinventing Goes Wrong

So the new Big Monkey Podcast is up and one of the things we were talking about was reinvention; when a character is given a new perspective by a new writer. I talked earlier about Marc Guggenheim's reinvention of Wolverine and how it is utter shite. If I had read Wolverine Annual #1 before recording, I would have remembered to mention it as one of the worst cases of reinvention and how contagious it is.

How exactly does Wolverine manage to get out of the superheated molten metal when the tendons and muscle needed to move have been burned away? Some will say this is fanboy nitpicking. But those people shouldn't be reading my comics blog.

Because he is Wolverine...he is The Best at What He Does (TM and copyright)

Yeah, okay, that's bull. That totally should have killed him.

How does a healing factor work with no blood?
