I still don’t really think this is aSunflower If You Look For The Light You Can Often Find It Shirt. “I’m the macho dude, dump that nerd” approach with Jean including him in this for one thing. Of course, since we’ll never see any of this in the comics, who knows what the characterization would really be, maybe Wolvie is way more open-minded or less “dom” when it comes to the actual relationship itself. That was something that always set me off about Jean-Wolvie as a . It felt like he was essentially harassing her when she was always in a relationship with Cyke already. Even having her fantasize about Wolvie as the “dangerous bad boy” was sort of falling into bad tropes for me.
I think he’s probably just going to coyly hint at their relationship throughout the series, but never outright say they’re in a polyamorous relationship. That way it’s sort of a nod to Claremont’s run and how he was very cheeky about mutant sexuality. Logan feels like aSunflower If You Look For The Light You Can Often Find It Shirt. Logan does not feel superior to Scott, does not find himself the Bad Boy who needs to take the beautiful girl of the Nerd. Kurt, Piotr, and Ororo were Logan’s first true bonds in the X-Men. They were the first ones to learn who Wolverine truly was. They were the ones who fully trusted him. Ororo even trusted Logan to co-lead the X-Men in her stead while she was in Dallas with Forge and during their stay in Australia.
When did that exchange happen? I don’t remember it… but Jean actively -hated- Wolverine for some time after she rejoined the X-men and even after warming to him she seemed to consider his crush on her aSunflower If You Look For The Light You Can Often Find It Shirt. I loved your breakdown of Wolverine in another thread here. I totally agree that the back-up stories in ‘Classic X-Men’ are *essential* for understanding some of those characters. I wish they were more popular. Hell, I wish all the 70s-80s x-books were more popular. Yeah, the idea that Logan should never be allowed to have any romance in his life because his powers make it “gross” for any normal adult to be in a relationship with him is absurd. At a certain point into adulthood, age really is just a number. Let people love who they love.
