Good points. The mystery of Wolverine’s past was one of the things I most loved about him when I was reading his story as it came out. Getting all of the little reveals spread out over time maintained my interest… up to a point where it was just, Oh come on already. You couldn’t maintain the mystery for 40 years. Anyone reading this for the first time now, knowing the backstory, will just never understand how cool and exciting it was to discover that his claws actually popped out of his hands instead of just being part of his gloves.
