COMICS: Jason Starr Promises A "Real World" Take On Logan In WOLVERINE MAX
Wolverine will be getting the Marvel MAX treatment this October, and along with the expected increase in blood n' guts, writer Jason Starr says we can look forward to a more "realistic" take on the character too. Check out some quotes, and artwork from the series..
Fans have been crying out for a MAX take on Wolverine for a long time now - after all, if any character qualifies for the more mature imprint it's surely the Mutant berserker. Well this October we will finally be getting a new ongoing MAX series from writer Jason Starr, with art from Connor Willumson and Roland Boschi as well as covers by Jock. Speaking to CBR, Starr reveals a little of what we can expect from Wolverine MAX..
"I definitely looked for a realistic version of Wolverine and not a superhero version. I wanted a down to earth guy who could function in the real world. I wanted to give him a back story that really explains how he's been able to do that for centuries -- to integrate into society. To me, that's what those stories have -- a kind of realistic bent where this stuff could actually be happening. My main story line is about a robbery even though it will include some elements like his claws, healing factor, etc. But you would believe this could all happen in the real world. I really wanted that."
Wolverine certainly lends himself to a gritty approach, but "real world"? A lot of fans don't like it when their favorite characters are taken out of their usual comic-book-reality settings so it will be interesting to see how this is received.
