Quote:I can't find anything on this from DeFalco. I have a Marvel Age interview that I'll pull out and see if there is anything in there. At the time, Wolverine was in a frenzy fighting Sue and Ben stepped in and Wolverine lost control and savagely wounded his face.
Quote:More than likely though, Marvel was just jobbing Ben to make Wolverine look like the uber-badass that it wanted him to be, and it added drama to the story. I know I wanted Ben to kill Wolverine after that, but there was never a satisfying conclusion, IMO. Still is was a dramatic plot device and made you want to know what would happen next issue.
I disagree that it didn't have a satisfying conclusion that served the character well.
Wolverine slashed his face open, and a few issues later Ben bought him a beer.
When Ben went to prison in that Quiet Man "epic", I'm surprised he didn't pack his own bars of soap.
