> Wolverine: Well, Loeb's arc is really, really taking its time to get moving, but it finally seems to be getting somewhere interesting. Seeing the Panther and Storm is very cool, and the interaction betwwen T'Challa and Logan. The ending gives us a nice surprise cast of guest-stars: Sasquatch, Feral, Thornn (these ladies need some revamped, non-late 80s/early 90s hairsyles!), Wolfsbane, and Wildchild show up, all of these characters, including Wolverine and Creed, apparently have sprung from a Lupine offshoot of the evolutionally process. A quest is on!

Not that I've been reading Loeb's arc, but if the Lupine backstory is true, doesn't that mean Loeb is borrowing story elements from Chuck Austen of all people? After all, Austen submitted the idea of " tribes " of mutant offshoots before Loeb....

I'm not reading Wolverine either, but the basic premise of the idea doesn't sound too much different than what Krueger and Ross did with the EarthX/UniverseX/ParadiseX series. From Wikipedia(I know...not always accurate but it does seem to be what I remember from that series):
"According to the information in the Earth X miniseries Paradise X: Heralds, the second child of the Howletts died in childbirth and the Howletts found and adopted an infant member of the Moon Clan, a bestial race which has co-existed with humanity for hundreds of thousands of years. This Clan, which is also dubbed wolf clan, were mortal enemies of the Bear Clan, to which Sabretooth belongs. Supposedly, it is this Moon Tribe child who was named James Howlett and would grow up to become Wolverine explaining the enmity between Wolverine and Sabretooth in this alternate reality.

It is also revealed that this seemingly divergent sub-species is in fact what the "true" human species would have become if not for the Celestials' intervention and genetic tampering."

In this series Wolverine in actuality wasn't a mutant at all. At least he got stuck with Madelyne Pryor when he thought he was getting Jean. >:-)
