I sure hope they put this scene in the movie

As far as my movie-watchin' dollar goes, one of my favorite Wolverine moments oughta be in the upcoming film:

UXM #129
Panels from [Uncanny] X-Men #129 (January 1980), co-plot and script by Chris Claremont, co-plot and pencils by John Byrne, inks by Terry Austin, colors by Bob Sharen, letters by Tom Orzechowski

What's that you say? That's a Storm/Kitty scene? (Well, aren't they all in a Claremont comic?) No, look closer—zoom in with your ruby-quartz binoculars and you'll see Wolverine (and pal Colossus) in the background of the panel:

UXM #129

...and if you really take a close look, that ain't Martha Stewart Living that the old Canucklehead is perusing while young Peter gapes:

UXM #129
All of which, of course, is apt to attract the attention of Earth-616's version of Mr. Whipple, the Don't Squeeze the Charmin guy:

UXM #129

Anyway, we get the picture. Wolverine is all man, bub. Which leads me, by the way, to salute good friend and fantabulous blogger Dorian on this momentous occasion of the fifth anniversary of his mighty web-thingee, (, all with a riff on one of the mightiest and mirthful memes he's given us over the last half-decade. We all know how it starts out, right? Say it with me: "Always remember..."

UXM #129

Yup! Absolutely no gay subtext in this here movie, nosirree, not one bit.


Happy Blogiversary, Dorian!
