Did Marvel Censor the New Wolverine Logo Because We Were Too Close to the Truth?

Marvel Comics has unveiled the final version of the new Wolverine logo on the cover of February's Wolverine #1, and it features some major changes from the preview we saw of the logo last month.

Designer Tom Muller first posted what appeared to be the in-progress logo back in October.

We were excited because the symbology of the W in the logo appeared to confirm a long-running theory about Wolverine: that he has two dicks, one for f**king and one for making love. We illustrated this by overlaying an image of Wolverine over the logo.

Does the Possible New Wolverine Logo Confirm a Long-Running Fan Theory?

But the final version does away with the two-dick symbology. Why? Were we getting too close to the truth? What is Marvel trying to hide?

While our two-dick theory remains unproven for now, now that we've seen it, it's hard not to view almost all of the letters in the new logo as being a bit phallic (though if your dick looks like the one in the right-half of the R, please see a doctor immediately). Of course, this may just be us. We are cursed with the uncanny ability to spot dicks in logos that others might miss. You could say it's our mutant power.

Regardless, while Marvel may have backed off from confirming that Wolverine has two dicks with the new Wolverine logo, in our hearts, we will always know it to be true. Wolverine #1, by Benjamin Percy and Adam Kubert, hits stores in February.

Jonathan Hickman's bold new era for mutantkind in this all-new series starring Wolverine and his X-Men companions. Writer Benjamin Percy and legendary artist Adam Kubert bring the best there is to his new home in WOLVERINE #1.


About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!

About News with Benefits

Why let facts get in the way of a good story? News with Benefits is just like the actual news, but more interesting because it's embellished. Yes, it may feature made-up quotes, wrong assertions, and completely baseless speculation, but in a way, isn't that more honest than the shameless buttkissing and corporate shillery you often find in the "real" news? Don't answer that.

News with Benefits was pioneered at toilet-themed comic book news and opinion website TheOuthousers.com, which is sadly now defunct, but its stench lives on thanks to the support of your clicks and outraged comments.
