Marvel Legends - ALL NEW WOLVERINE!

Deadpool Legends: Wave 2 (Sauron BAF) - All-New Wolverine - Hasbro 2018

I've always wanted there to be a female Wolverine. I thought Logan was so iconic, but his gruff personality and violent tendencies were a little too one-note for me. I thought a gender swap would be so much more interesting. We've been teased with several female Wolverines over the years.. my favorite being Wolverina in What The?! #11 which essentially highlighted how silly the concept of a female Wolverine was to the masses back then. Then I had high hopes for Rancor in Guardians of the Galaxy and Wild Thing from the MC2 universe. They were both fine characters, but I wasn't in love with their designs and ultimately they didn't have staying power. I was loving the comic NYX when Laura Kinney first appeared and bared her claws (I collect comics by artist and I've always loved Joshua Middleton's work). I was so excited to see this new character in costume, but those high expectations were dashed when all she wore for 11 years were (in my humble opinion) boring stealth-looking outfits...

(I'm a firm believer in bright spandex and capes over leather jackets and gritted teeth). But she did don the classic Wolverine outfit eventually and finally I had the character I had always wanted. The sad thing is I know her time in this suit is limited (if it's not over already), so I'm glad we got this Marvel Legends figure during her brief window of awesomeness. Let's check her out below!

Wolverine comes with an unmasked Laura head. Her toe claws are also removable. I'm super happy about this because I always thought they were a little silly. Her hand claws are removable in the same way, but the anchor holes on the knuckles are a lot more noticeable than the ones on her feet.

Laura comes with the Left arm and Wing of the Build-a-Figure Sauron.

And here are some images of some of the most notable female Wolverines up till now: Wolverina, Rancor, and Wild Thing.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with her X-23 Incarnation.
