Wolverine - Barnsey's Attempts at Poetry
Wolverine - Logan
One of the reasons Wolverine became so popular among comic fans and children alike was his humanity. He represented the opposite spectrum from godly heroes like Superman or Thor. He possessed all of the foibles and weaknesses of the common man. His greatest foe often was his own lack of self control. Because of his mutation he battled his savage urges with every breath. To me this was an echo of the inner struggle many men go through as they mature. This is also the struggle all good men go through as they stand by and wait for a slow and unwieldy judicial system to deliver justice to the deserving.
Forced to reign in his true capacity for violence and revenge he still managed to be one of the greatest Marvel Comic heroes of all time. He existed somewhere between civility and savagery. He was neither Man nor Beast
What do you think?
Do you think of Wolverine as a Hero or a Vigilante?
Man nor Beast
Man nor beast, upon either or, forever I will feast
Man nor beast, greater or less, more savage to say the least
Senses acute, I smell the blood on your hands
I hear the tune of your fear, for guilt is only man's
Silent as night, I follow ill wrought fate
Bloodstained steel, razor sharp is my hate
Bound by honor, righting wrongs yet they scorn
Gaijin barbarian, ex-man born
Man nor beast, I am the foe your running from
Man nor beast, I'll cut the cruelty from your tongue
Unsure of myself I seek solitude with my pain
Senses acute only humanity keeps me sane
Mostly immune, healing process keeps me whole
Unbreakable bones, all that wounds is my soul
Past unknown my friends are too few
Renowned for death, man nor beast I'm coming through
Man nor beast, I'm the shadow your running from
Man nor beast, I'll kill the beast you've become
