Occasionally I have been accused of pulling stories out of my rectum. This is never true. Occasionally a story may be pulled out of someone else's rectal cavity, but I always give it a dust off and check if it passed the smell-test before presenting it as a story on Bleeding Cool. But, a month ago, when I stated that we were to learn that Wolverine – who had borrowed Magneto's helmet to keep a particularly nasty telepath at bay – had used it as a urinal before returning it to Magneto – although he used slightly choice words. I initially reported as part of a list of increasingly-confirmed X-Men gossip,
1) You saw Wolverine get Magneto drunk and use his helmet to ensure he wouldn't against be possessed by a telepath. But before he gives it back to Magneto, he uses it as a toilet. And only tells Magneto after it's already back on his head. Maybe that white hair won't be quite so white?
Before later defining the language used;
See Magneto's face when he places it on his helmet? That's because this is the moment that Logan chooses to reveal that he has used it as a urinal. Not the words Logan uses of course, he prefers "piss bucket".
Naturally, a number of folks doubted my word. Heaven forfend. But in a preview to this week's Wolverine #4, it all came out…
Those flies bussing around should underline the point… maybe I should do another eight gossipy X-Men spoilers? And what of Wolverine? Well, he is the best there is at what he do-doos…
I'm 48 this year.

THE RED TAVERN!
After getting dressed down by the Quiet Council for rogue activity, Wolverine escapes through his own secret gate to the Red Tavern, a snowbound, backwoods watering hole where he only wants to guzzle whiskey in peace. But Logan soon discovers that peace isn't possible as a twist-and-turn murder mystery unfolds – and at the heart of it all is an enemy from the past.
