This is something that I really only noticed during the X-Men movies, but I should have been noticing it during the comics too.
But WHY is he willing to wear that crap? I mean, I always got the impression that Wolverine was just this bad-ass totally unhinged borderline psychotic man who didn't like tolerating a bunch of BS. It's one thing for him to actually hanging out with spandex-clad do-gooders in the first place, but WHY would he dress up like them too?
I mean, like in the first X-Men movie. We get introduced to Wolverine hanging out in a bar wearing a wifebeater shirt, and getting drunk. At which point he makes money by beating the living **** out of people. THAT'S what I think of when I think of Wolverine.
And yeah...I know that he found acceptance and purpose as a member of the X-Men. But that STILL doesn't excuse him wearing that damn cheesy costume. Even just in the movies, whenever you see Wolverine dressed up like the other X-Men, Wolverine just looks ridiculous. Simply because out of EVERYONE there, he's the ONE character who should have been most likely to say "**** you guys, I'm not wearing this crap."
And that's the thing that gets me. He has a berserker rage which makes him prone to slicing people in half. Hell, he freaking stabbed ROGUE and almost killed her. If THAT'S not enough to get him immediately fired from the X-Men, then I VERY much doubt that professor X would fire him for not wearing that dumbass black X-Men uniform.
All he has to do is say "**** that, I'm not wearing this ****." And that'd be the end of it. And no one would think him less of a team player, especially considering the fact that half of them would be too afraid of him going psycho on their asses to say ANYTHING.
And hell, that's just in the damn movie. The movie toned down Wolverine's rage and feral tendecies a LOT, and actually made his costume look LESS ridiculous. And he STILL ended up looking totally ridiculous every time he wore the costume in those movies.
So WHY is it that in the comics, where he was even MORE of a crazy uncontrollable psychopath who was 10 times as badass and with even LESS tolerance for BS, WHY does he wear that awful stupid pointless ridiculous yellow spandex costume that looks about a hundred times more lame than even the costume that they invented for the movies?
I mean, for god's sake he's freaking WOLVERINE. What, is he gonna get FIRED for refusing to wear that crap? WHO is actually gonna have the balls to tell Wolverine that he's getting fired just because he won't wear the costume? NOBODY, that's who. All he has to do is say that he's not gonna wear that crap, and that'll be the end of the goddamn discussion.
