However, story of Wolverine began a long way before that incident. Logan was born in the 19th century, so he and his brother Sabretooth must have been around for quite a long time before joining the Weapon X program.

Hey guess what!

I'm taking this art appreciation class in school and we watched this video about this guy that draws big pictures on walls. Our teacher dared us to draw something really big. I don't have any bare walls, but I stuck some paper to my bedroom door and drew a life size Russell. Actually, it's only the top half of him, but I get freaked out every time I look at it. Not that Russell is scary, but it looks just like him! It's like he's watching me.........

Arcturus is not like Spiral Architect and I don't think that there is any other bands like SA. The closest band that I found was Mekong Delta but they aren't anywhere near as busy.

Arcturus's last disc called Sham Mirrors was pretty good but no where near as progressive as their previous disc called La Masquerade Inferale which was amazing.

That's cool Metal Chick
I think I will do the same thing as you one day. I really like it to draw and especially people / bands / things like that.
Mostly of my drawings are Symphony X drawings. I made a pic of each bandmember these days. They are kinda cool, Pinnella is hard to do though
I would like to see some of your drawings

Those movies were cool..I have both Ring and Ring2..

Oh fuck yeah, I love Ringu, its my favorite horror movie. I thought it was much better than The Ring, tho The Ring was good too. Sadako is just so much more evil than Samara...

Nope. Half brothers. It was rumored, but not true. Quite an interesting story behind it all. It's like a big sci-fi soap opera if you ask me.

No. Logan was born presumably as Elisabeth and John Howlett's second son (the first one died), however it is known that Mrs. Howlett had an affair with their housekeeper Thomas Logan (who is a splitting image of Wolverine), which makes him James's biological father. Thomas Logan also had a son called "Dog", who was born with a deformed face and distinctive looking fingernails that resembled animal claws.
Few days after John Howlett fired Thomas Logan off the estate because of his alcohol problems, Logan and his son entered the estate armed. When Logan tried to persuade James's mother to leave with him, John Howlett entered the room and Logan shot him dead.
Seeing his father shot triggered James's mutant abilities. He went berserk and killed his biological father by stabbing him several times with his claws. Later he took Logan's name to hide his true identity.
Little did he know that Dog was also the one with mutant abilities.
Dog (Sabretooth) hates Wolverine since that day.

I hope that was at least a bit insightful!

Haha, yeah I guess. To me, Marvel always stood above other comic series such as DC, because it always featured deeper and more elaborated background stories of the characters. It's not just action, there's a lot of drama involved, so yeah, like you said, a sort of a sci-fi soap opera.

What sets you guys/gals in "da mood"...
I mean, when you look in the mirror or any reflection of yours for that matter and say: "You rock, dude!" to it.

Yeah...
that kind of mood...

Well... I think it's wearing my long, black trenchcoat, all-black clothing and shades on a sunny day with a little gust of wind so that it makes the coat swing just right. Then I walk past every reflecting surface just admiring how cool I look compared to the rest of the rabble.

Narcissus was a wimpy beginner when compared to me.

Wow...a lot has been revealed since I stopped reading 7 or so years ago lol. The last issue of Wolverine I have in my collection is #115, so I guess that should give you an idea on how much Ive missed . Did he ever wind up getting his adamantium back? I know they tried in issue 100 but he rejected it. Im aware Marvel revamped a LOT of its titles (Like i know they basically started from scratch again with Spider-Man) did they do the same with the X-Men?

Yeah, he did get the adamantium when he was kidnapped by this Apocalypse guy. He was given it back to fight the X-Men under Apocalypse's hypnosis.
Anyway, yeah there's the revamping alright with those new Ultimate X-Men series. Storylines are a bit changed like for instance Storm, instead of being from Africa, was some NY ghetto girl before she joined X-men and Wolverine is portrayed as one of Magneto's goons.
