How long until people who don't obsess about this sort of thing pick up on this trend? As lousy as the both Fantastic Four movies were, correct me if I'm wrong, but nobody lost their powers, right? Because aside from that movie and maybe Ghost Rider 2, which I've yet to see, it seems like this is the go-to for all Hollywood superhero films. Oh, right. Iron Man waited til the 3rd installment for that to happen, and Hulk just rebooted between movies.
I probably won't go see Wolverine because... honestly, I don't care. At least the last one was so bad I had a good laugh (this did not amuse my fellow movie goers, but, honestly...).
Like everyone else who reads comics, I was once a big Wolverine fan until the circa 1988 solo series, during which middle-school me decided he was more compelling as a team-player than running around Madripoor with an eyepatch. I used to read and re-read that original, four issue mini-series by Claremont and a young Frank Miller. That thing read like poetry, but, man, it also sort of had the final word on the transformation of Wolverine from "Canadian White Trash Stabby Guy" to "Samurai Warrior". After that, I didn't really care about the various stories trying to take Wolverine apart and put him back together or whatever.
