Speaking of Wolverine, here’s a fun bit of trivia:

According to a study that began in 2003, the conventional view of wolverines as solitary animals is incorrect in many respects, particularly with regard to child-rearing. Though males roam widely, travelling up to 200 kilometers per week and sometimes crossing mountain ranges up to 1500 meters tall simply by going up one side and down the other, they’ve been found to frequently revisit their offspring’s dens to participate in raising them. Furthermore, once the young have been weaned and left the nest, they often seek out their father and join him in his travels until they’re up to two years of age; this behaviour is observed in young of all sexes, and it’s not uncommon to observe a male accompanied in his roaming by one or two juvenile offspring.

Now, as we all know, Wolverine is – in spite of his protestations to the contrary – the dadliest of X-Men, so this seems appropriate. But there’s a hitch: this facet of wolverine behaviour was not well-documented until the early 2000s, while the X-Men stories that first established Wolverine’s dadly proclivities were written and published some years earlier.

That’s right: Marvel’s writers gave Wolverine a trait that reflects an important but then-unknown habit of real life male wolverines by sheer accident.

“they often seek out their father and join him in his travels until they’re up to two years of age; this behaviour is observed in young of all sexes, and it’s not uncommon to observe a male accompanied in his roaming by one or two juvenile offspring.”

Logan turns around and the entire fucking school is following him and Kurt just waves and is like “Hi dad”

“What the hell did you just call me?”
