From the last thread:

I love his X-Men run, his Alpha Flight run, etc.

And by the way, here's an early picture of Wolverine unmasked by Byrne. It shows how the portrayal of Wolverine back in the '70s and early '80s was influenced by Jack Nicholson, who was then the classic '70s antihero. See the close resemblence to Nicholson:

Here's another one, a classic image from the cover of the Days of Future Past storyline. Note the same resemblence. Wolverine is Jack Nicholson.

And Jack Nicholson in the iconic 1970 movie Five Easy Pieces:

Five Easy Pieces (1970)

Compare the grin in the first Byrne pic to this photo from the movie:

Five Easy Pieces (1970)

He even dressed like Wolverine a lot in that film -plaid shirts, turtlenecks, leather jacket, jeans, cowboy boots.

Early portrayals of Wolverine also gave him a personality echoing characters like those Jack Nicholson played back then.

Here's Nicholson from the Shining (1980), showing what became some of Wolverine's trademark wild spirits.

The Shining (1980)

And a very feral-looking Nicholson from the same film:

The Shining (1980)

You do notice that there's not much text in the post, right? And just a few links to pics. It shouldn't take much time to read through and you'd have more time if you spent less of it on the Star Wars board.

You and Tar are posting so much on SW board that nobody else can post there regularly because nobody can keep up with the shifts in the board and the endless number of threads being posted on and the rapid turnover.

Sorry about giving you a hard time about the Star Wars board.

Should find out about when Thor is out but think Wonder Woman this weekend especially if things go well tomorrow - I can redeem a free movie and might need it
