Evolution of Wolverine – Infographic

Evolution of the Wolverine

Just a fun infographic for this sweltering Friday!  Superheroes and comics have always been a hobby of mine and the X-Men, and especially Wolverine, have been my favorites for as long as I can remember.  Even I forgot how many times his costume has changed over the years though….almost as many as Batman’s!!  Created by halloweencostumes.com, this infographic is just in time for the new Wolverine movie hitting theaters next week!

Today’s video from PBS presents an interesting, and compelling theory that the technology we carry with us everyday in our pockets — primarily our phones — are quickly causing a hyper-reality that some believe may be making humans less social, in a world of “social media”, while others believe that this is a natural evolution.  Stay tuned at the end for some interesting commentary from past videos on copyright laws!
