    I want to read of all this Millar's Marvel Mega-Event some time, but what I heard kind of threw me for a loop.
    Is the Hooded Man really
    Wolverine?

    The guy who is the big huge bad guy, who was Doom's teacher or whatever is really that guy? Or am I confusing things?

    I think you are confusing things a little. You're mixing up stuff that we actually know from reading the story with vague hints Millar has given in interviews about stuff that hasn't actually been revealed yet.

    I don't see how you can rank 1985 above Red Son, or even Old Man Logan.

    I mean, we've seen stories about superheroes or some other fantastic thing invading the "real world" before, and I don't really know what sets Millar's story apart beyond rampant fatalities.

    Old Man Logan is going to be more than the sum of it's parts, even though it has some slow spots, but I'm really hoping the ending doesn't try to tie in too much to
    The hooded man shit.

    I didn't read 1985 or the current FF run beyond scans, so I have no idea what this Hooded Man thing is past the fact that Old Man Logan gets even older, raises a Banner baby, and then puts on a hood. What's wrong with that?

    Not much, given, I just don't want a whole epilogue of sorts wasted on how Logan gets older and puts on a hood. Actually, I guess that's not that bad. I guess I don't know what my beef was.

    Well I'm biased because Secret Wars and 80s Marvel is what got me into comics, so 1985 is pretty much a love letter aimed directly at me.

    I've said in here before that it was like Millar was writing it for me personally

    The Millar/JRJR run of WOLVERINE is the best thing Millar has ever written, but mainly because JRJR drew it.

    As someone that did read a lot of Marvel's 80's output (in fact, short of some of the New Universe titles, I think I've read everything Marvel put out in that decade), I didn't find much of a relation between that material and 1985.

    But then, 1985 isn't really a story about Marvel characters, now is it?

    That was Millar... but it wasn't the best thing he's written. I can't even see it being in my Top 5 of his work. Everyone's got their own opinion and all, but I don't think so. It was good though, not saying it wasn't.

    I hated that Wolverine was played as some nigh unstoppable killing machine. There's no shortage of people that should have been able to put the hairy canuck down.

    Plus Millar gave Spot, Slyde, and Hornet throwaway deaths, which was totally uncool.

    Yeah, two or three guys could have gotten together and easily beat Wolverine. Someone to fight him on the ground and get him out into a clearing, a flyer with a ranged weapon and someone to put him in stasis. Hell, Iron Man or Mach whatever and Iceman could beat him, or at least stop him and keep him frozen until someone undid the mumbojumbo that turned him on his allies.

    Was there a reason why a bunch of street-level vigilantes and unexperienced superheroes had to fight Wolverine? An actual in story reason. Were the X-men and the Avengers and everyone who stood a chance against him all off-Earth or something?

    Maybe he prefers baldness, like Bruce Willis or Grant Morrison. I think he has more important things to worry about, like how to get humanity out of Superman's thrall. The damn alien bastard!

    I just can't believe SHIELD doesn't track someone as potentially dangerous as Wolverine constantly, even if he were friends with Fury. Hell, Wolverine should have an entire department or detachment or something, watching him constantly. The same group could keep tabs on Sabertooth.

    Or that none of his friends/team mates got freaked out when Wolverine didn't return calls and go looking for him.

    I don't want to pull a mattharvest though, so I'm going to drop it.

    I'm pretty sure Shield/Electra/whoever could have figured out a way to get ahold of them. Maybe by telegraph or something. Or maybe, being the premier spy/police organization in the MU, they could find a phone number. Or something. Really now.
