I don`t see anything wrong with this. His current moral is pretty much *I am allowed do everything because somebody has to do the dirty things but if somebody else attempts to, he is a scumbag* And it`s not just something the fans feel, it`s been acknowledged in-universe several times, even in his own book (See *The Reason you suck* speech).

First, I think you posted that as a new query while you wanted to post it in response to the older one.

Second, the issue is not whether he qualifies for the trope but that the example writeup sucks.

Yeah, sorry, pushed the wrong button. Second, I`m always open for improvement proposals (I just might not be able to immidiately abide by them, because I currently am at a friends house becauce I have no internet after moving, a status that might stay that way for at least 2 weeks).

This entry needs to be rewritten; it's way too gripey and reads like something that should be on Darth Wiki.

  • Hypocrite: Oh boy. Post-Schism it's almost the most defining character trait he has. He vilifies Cyclops on every occasion possible for training his kids for survival when this has been pretty much the whole concept of the X-Men since Day One (even worse: He does it himself! He even dumped his share of kids in the Savage Land). Not to talk about Scott's *murder* of Charles Xavier, which was completely against his will, and Wolverine should understand best, as he was once in the exact same situation when the Hand and HYDRA brainwashed him into going on a killing spree (with Northstar among his victims). But the worst part is, he himself has killed countless times completely on his own will and literally justifies it with nobody I've ever killed mattered.

There's certainly enough cases to argue the point, though. IE the way he treated Hellion over killing Karima in the X-23 series, considering 1) he's done the same thing himself, 2) he's done WORSE, 3) the fact that X-23 has done many of the same things and he'd supported her. Instead he locks Hellion in his room and treats him like a criminal.

I now added a hopefully more neutral entry.
