Did Wolverine Just Use Magneto's Helmet As A Urinal?

Remember how Kevin Smith rewrote a certain classic scene from Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli's Batman Year One?

Batman The Widening Gyre by Kevin Smith and Walt Flanagan.

Is it possible that Marvel Comics may be about to match it. In a recent post with 8 Gossipy Spoilers about the X-Men books, I stated

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?

Some people contacted me and thought I was joking. I wasn't. In recent issues, we have seen Logan possessed and made to do all sorts of naughty things.

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". Which, intriguingly, would be a phrase that DC Comics comic book writers are not allowed to use in standard ongoing superhero titles. How things have changed since Batman Damned… oh and if you remember the mutant trauma support group I mentioned in that earlier post?

That's then. And that private Krakoan gate that only Wolverine knows about?

Maybe not so private… here comes Omega Red, coming to The Red Tavern.
