This is not the most favorite silver screen outing of everyone’s favorite mutton-chopped mutant. And it’s easy to see why.
The Wolverine sees Hugh Jackman return as the titular hero mourning in self-indicted solitary confinement after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand left him more battle-scarred than ever. For anyone who needs reminding, Last Stand had Cyclops and Professor X presumably killed by Jean Grey a.k.a. Phoenix. Logan, being the only mutant who can, was forced to kill her with his bare adamantium claws to save them all from imminent destruction. Add to that fact Logan’s overwhelming, unrequited love for Jean and yes, he will get deep, battle scars that do not heal like the rest of the wounds on his flesh.
