    Isn't Origins about to run a Wolvy-in-WWII story soon anyway?

    Well, if it's Origins than we know it's gonna suck

    I liked Mark Millar's Wolverine in WWII issue, although its almost certainly not in continuity.

    It was a tricky thing to do, and I liked it except for the one page where Millar simply can't help himself and starts drawing paralells between the Nazis and the present day America. He really needs a strong editor to rein in his dafter excesses.

    Hell, it can't be any worse than Front Line comparing fictional comic battles to real-life wars. Man that pissed me off.

    Spider-Man is the sole survivor of a nuclear explosion that kills hundreds.

    Or something.

    Dunno what page it was on, but it's while the German Officer is narrating tyhe story in Wolverine #32: "I took no pleasure in our camps or our preemptive strikes, but recognized that it was necessary to fight this terror abroad just as we had done for the security of our homeland. The Jews might have started this war when they brought down one of our finest buildings, but it's the duty of all patriots to finish it."

    Subtle is one of many words Mark Millar would have to look up. It's quite a neat trick, actually, Godwinning something by actually having a Nazi say it instead of merely comparing something someone said to the Nazis.
