Len Wein is a living legend. Whilst not known around the globe like Stan Lee, mention his name to any comic book aficionado and they'll kneel down and say things like 'we're not worthy'. Wein has been a proud superhero parent for decades -- helping give birth to Swamp Thing, Nightcrawler, Storm, Colossus and of course, Wolverine, which he helped create as a foe for The Incredible Hulk. His work in the mid '70s saw a renaissance of the X-Men and a legacy that endures to this day. As an editor, he has worked at both Marvel and DC, and was the man at the helm who helped shape Watchmen. He was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 2008.


As creator of Wolverine, how do you feel about the translation of your character to the big screen?

I think they've done a terrific job of translating it from one medium to the next.

When you first figured him out, did you reason why Wolverine has claws coming out between his knuckles, and not, say, his fingernails?

Well, for one thing, practicality. Frankly, it looks cooler. In point of fact, in the comics, they actually come out of the back of his hands. But that's a **** to show on the big screen.

Plus it would be impractical -- he'd be like one of those ladies with long fingernails, make doing his hair a bit tricky.

Well there is one such character in X-Men 2 -- Lady Deathstrike, who's got razor sharp Adamantium fingernails.
