WWWWWW #87 - X-Men Chicken Wings

World Wide Web Wacky Wing Wednesday. #lotwWWWWWW.
Exploring chicken wing culture on the internet every Wednesday.

This Week:

X-Men | Chicken Wing

Last week I went to see Logan, and it was awesome.

If you haven't seen it, it is excellent. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart are at the top of their games and new comer Dafne Keen keeps her own. Action galore, humour and Johnny Cash. I did have some timeline issues with the movie, but suffice it to say, if you like X-Men, go see this.

But it got me thinking; while there are no chicken wings in this movie, are there chicken wings in the X-Men universe? Well it turns out there is. In fact, there is a character called Chicken Wings.

He only exists in one comic, X-Factor#51 (February, 1990) and, well he dies. We don't know much about him other than he is a Morlock, and he kinda looks like a bird.

What are his powers? We don't know - we don`t really know much about him. He's a pretty pathetic individual who is hunted down by Sabretooth and first has his arm/wing ripped off, and then later is killed.

Ok so unless you are a hardcore X-Men fan, you`ve never heard of him, and you are not going to find an action figure of Chicken Wings. Oh wait . . .

You can get a custom made action figure of Chicken Wings.

So not the coolest X-Man, but hey, we live in a wacky world. I like chicken wings, I like X-Men, but I don`t love Chicken Wings. Here`s the old cartoon intro and a Logan trailer to make up for it:

So uh....what kind of sauce did they eat him with when he died in the comic? :)
