Fun Fact: Wolverine has been working on himself

As we usher in the year 2024, it marks a time for setting ambitious goals and envisioning significant personal transformations. In the realm of comic book heroes, one iconic character embodies the essence of change: Fictogram Guest #37, aka Wolverine. Initially emerging as a secondary character in a Hulk comic, Wolverine's journey has been nothing short of remarkable. He transitioned from a supporting role to become a central figure in the X-Men series, eventually stepping into the spotlight with his own blockbuster movies. His evolution continued, with a notable change where his trademark claws, once part of his gloves, became an integral part of his anatomy, reflecting the deepening of his backstory.

Interestingly, one thing that hasn’t changed about Wolverine is his face: throughout the live-action adaptations, Hugh Jackman has been the singular actor to portray Wolverine. Pretty impressive since X-Men came out almost a quarter of a century ago, and we’ve had no fewer than 3 Spider-men in that time.

As Wolverine prepares for his latest return in the much-anticipated Deadpool 3, we are left pondering: Where will 2024 take this legendary character? And equally importantly, where will it take each of us in our personal journeys?
