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.
