Jay Sherer reviews Wolverine: Old Man Logan by Mark Millar (Daryl told me it's pronounced Mill-ER, so I pronounce it incorrectly the entire podcast) and Steve McNiven. I also dig deeper to ask some important questions about the story.
First up, our review--Quality, Story Depth, and Likelihood to Refer it to others. And here are some of the deeper questions:
- Is it acceptable to be a pacifist? Why or why not? Are pacifists weaker than those willing to fight, or are they stronger?
- What should we place our hope in? Humans in this book worship super heroes. What do we worship? Does it provide hope for us?
- There's a lot of talk about "Nazis" today. How do we ensure that the U.S. never falls under Nazi control?
- What is the "path of righteousness"? If being a pacifist is "righteous," why do we root for Wolverine to fight? When should we stand up and fight?
