Video of the Day: Firing Wolverine

Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

When firing Wolverine, be blunt.


Wolverine is one of the most popular characters in the Marvel lineup. He can heal rapidly, is immune to most poisons, has a skeleton coated in indestructible Adamantium, and can unsheathe a set of sharp claws to shred anyone that gets on his bad side. But have you ever stopped to ask how all of that makes him a good fit for the X-Men? And if you decided he wasn't, how would you go about firing a man who was once torn in half by the Hulk (ok, maybe that Adamantium wasn't quite so indestructible) only to get pissed because he had to climb a mountain to get his legs back? Comedian Pete Holmes answers that question and puts our clawed hero in the hot seat as he portrays a less-than-diplomatic Professor Xavier in a skit that offers us a laugh at Wolverine's expense in our Video of the Day.


Poor Movie Logan. I guess that Adamantium bullet did a bit more damage than we thought. Funny enough, that whole Magneto issue was pretty spot on in the first X-Men movie. So it can be kind of comical to see just how silly some heroes can be when you really start poking at their powers. But still, I wouldn't care to be the guy that had to deliver that pink slip.
