brother, as someone who read all of wolverine's comics (by all i mean every one in his solo series and spin off series') and aslo team-ups, crossovers, his x-force run and a solid lot of x-men comics); i would recommend starting with his first solo run (claremont and miller, beautiful shit) and working your way trough the volumes. there are some bad eggs but if you like him you learn to somehow appreciate it. i must admit that i haven't read an smaller amount of latest issues (death of wolverine and the one before that). you had all of his volumes and above mentioned issues uploaded on pirate bay a few years back, so you can check it out there. i really enjoyed it, so i hope you will too.
plus: claremont stayed on the wolverine run on a decent amount of issues of volume 2, some of the best work i've read.

Honestly, I suggest with Death of Wolverine, and then work your way towards other comics starring him! Because really... There's a -lot- about him, and you have all the time in the world.

If he doesn't hold a moral high ground, or at the very least believe that he does, then his actions serve no purpose. He wants to believe that people are better. If they aren't then he has literally zero drive to continue what he does.

>>#116, What are you calling sharp? They certainly couldn't shave with their swords, or skin game. Edged, undoubedly. You were not ever in danger of breaking skin by running your finger down a blade edge. Besides the point, any battle sword, broadsword, arming sword, or other main unhorsed blade for an armored knight not horsed had the edge of a flat screwdriver tip. They came to a sharp point, for thrusting and piercing plate, but never has a sharpened edge like a rapier or saber.

When you look at the various fencing manuals, like lichtenauer or fiori dei liberi
(longsword) they don't directly talk about the sharpness of the sword, what they do however talk about are different techniques since that's what the manuals are about obviously
In lichtenauer he writes about the pommel strike, the cut, the thrust and the slice.
The cut is your basic "chop" cutting, the thrust is obvious, but the slice is performed by drawing or pushing the edge of the sword along the oponents neck or exposed areas, and today, people have made tests, cutting with sharp swords, and with dull swords, and it doesn't work with a dull sword, so yes, you would cut yourself if you ran your finger down the edge, otherwise the technique wouldn't work, and wouldn't be included in a manual.
There are some swords, like the estoc or smallsword, where it's clear that they didn't have a proper edge.

I don't have a link to the lichtenauer manual, I have that from my HEMA club
#122 - galanorth (17 hours ago) [-]
Then why are draw cuts featured in the treatises? hmm? You can hold a sharp edge, it doesn't need to be dull.



P.S. If you don't want to be taken for a freaking clown, how about to use something other than a "Journal for Military Miniature Enthusiasts" as a freaking source. Maybe use the Castillon swords as a reference, which were wonderfully preserved, so well in fact that they sill have the original sharp edges, that go down to the quillons.

Y'all need to read Injustice. I'm not saying it's not long past the time when some court shoulda condemned the Joker to death in the most horrible way imaginable. But if Bruce takes it into his own hands, he's essentially saying that it's OK for him to kill people, because he's wise/good/unbiased enough to decide who lives and who dies.

The whole plot of Injustice fleshes this idea out really well. If a hero kills someone in cold blood, it doesn't matter if they're evil or not. That hero is laying claim to the right to decide who is worthy of death. Doesn't matter if they were or not, the hero is claiming to be above the average man, because they can kill and not be punished for it.
User avatar #18 - hydraetis (04/25/2015) [-]
So where does that put the judges and juries who condemn serial killers to the electric chair then? Are they also just villains?
User avatar #20 - thepizzadevourer (04/25/2015) [-]
They are acting within an established legal system designed to prevent injustice. They're also simply enforcing laws that have been passed by legislative bodies, not just one person. There's also appeals, trial by jury, and all sorts of review if someone gets sentenced to death. In short, it's a system designed to make sure that the burden of the decision doesn't rest on just one person, because one person can be biased, or simply incorrect in their reasoning. It's not them just going "Hey, I think this guy is 'evil enough' for me to kill him."
#16 - Aftershock (04/25/2015) [-]
Great story, but there's a massive difference between Batman calmly and rationally deciding that the Joker needs to die in order to prevent him from killing hundreds more people and Superman snapping and becoming a grief and rage fueled dictator intent on shaping the world as he sees fit.
User avatar #17 - thepizzadevourer (04/25/2015) [-]
So you're saying if I think about it calmly and rationally, it's OK for me to kill someone as long as I decide they really, really deserve it?
#19 - Aftershock (04/25/2015) [-]
I'd argue that yes, there are situations which justify murder - though most of those aren't calm and rational decisions. I just meant that Superman in Injustice is an extreme case, and using it to explain why Batman cannot kill the Joker relies too heavily on a very slippery slope.

Though I do agree that someone assuming the moral authority to dole out death can be extremely problematic.
User avatar #21 - thepizzadevourer (04/25/2015) [-]
That's just it, though. I don't think you can make a calm, rational decision to kill someone without assuming the authority to dole out death. I think the real villains in this case are the courts who refuse to give the Joker the death penalty. Yeah, he's obviously insane, but he's also killed literally thousands of people, at some point you gotta stop giving him second chances.
#25 - Aftershock (16 hours ago) [-]
Yes, so I agree that it's problematic - but when such heinous atrocities are being committed, is allowing them to continue the right course of action? The justice system has already failed due to being incapable of detaining the Joker indefinitely and (I assume) not having a death penalty.
User avatar #8 - IamSofaKingdom (04/24/2015) [-]
That is because the entire reason Batman exists is to get rid of people like the Joker and to be an example that you can win without sinking to their level. He loses if he kills him because the Joker wants to pull Batman to his level, to show that no one is above the base chaos that he lives by. IF Batman, the one most dedicated against that idea, gives into it, the Joker wins.

The Marauder is just a murderer, he wasn't trying anything except killing people. Since he got killed, he lost.
#15 - Aftershock (04/25/2015) [-]
So Batman values his own moral standing more highly than the lives of all of the Jokers victims..
User avatar #24 - IamSofaKingdom (23 hours ago) [-]
P.S. Under the Red Hood tackles that issue already. The new Red Hood is pissed at Batman for never killing the Joker as a means to prevent the inevitable casualties.
#26 - Aftershock (16 hours ago) [-]
I don't blame him. I imagine he does something to take it too far though. Is that correct?
User avatar #28 - IamSofaKingdom (10 hours ago) [-]
Red Hood is Jason Todd, the Robin that Joker killed. Ras revived him in his Lazarus pit and he came back with a sort of Punisher mentality and is mad that Batman didn't kill the Joker in response.
User avatar #23 - IamSofaKingdom (23 hours ago) [-]
If the system wasn't so broken then the lives wouldn't be in danger. Batman can only do so much while staying just. Joker is constantly bailed or broken out of jail. The system gives him a slap on the wrist or 6 months in an asylum before letting him back out. What is Batman supposed to do? Become a lawyer and attack the system.

Welcome to the world of comic books. If everything went the way it was supposed to then all of these stories would have been written to conclusion decades ago.
#27 - Aftershock (16 hours ago) [-]
True - but is allowing injustice to occur so that you personally can retain your just identity really just?

Haha of course. If they were perfectly realistic within the confines of their lore they'd be very different stories.
User avatar #29 - IamSofaKingdom (10 hours ago) [-]
He does everything he can on his end, that is my point. The deaths Joker manages are because the law in place is inept. Batman can only do so much if the system is broken. He fights hoping to be a beacon for reform.
User avatar #9 - zaywoot (04/24/2015) [-]
I've heard that argument before, I know that's the idea behind it... I just disagree with it, and it really bothers me, because it kinda ruined batman a little for me...
