Cover Convention: WOLVERINE Gets Beaten Up. A Lot.
Adam Kubert's cover to next week's Wolverine #300 (exclusive preview here) shows a striking, but not entirely unfamiliar sight: the title character riddled with bullet wounds one apparently taking out an entire chunk of his arm yet undeterred and still fully ready to be the best there is what he does.
Wolverine has a healing factor, and that absolutely comes in handy, because the dude gets beaten up kind of a lot. And it's definitely not something that artists are afraid of exploring, as Wolverine's solo series has frequently shown him, shot, burned, stabbed, maimed, tortured, and otherwise physically harmed; taking a Kenny from South Park-level of punishment over the last few decades.
So in honor of the X-Man/Avenger/Jean Grey School for Higher Learning headmaster's impending anniversary issue, we've compiled some of the best "Wolverine getting beaten up" covers through the years. To keep it at a reasonable length, we've limited it to Wolverine solo issues for now, but rest assured that there are plenty of X-Men comics out there that have Wolverine getting beaten up on the cover.
