question of the day: What is the core of Wolverine’s appeal?

MTV.com today has a cheatsheet for newcomers and fans alike to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It’s mostly production-nerd stuff: behind-the-scenes tidbits, trivia about the cast, why some characters ended up in the film the way they did… stuff like that.

But it got me thinking: If you wanted to introduce a friend who was complete X-Men virgin to the universe, how would you sell that friend on Wolverine? It doesn’t matter whether or not you’ve seen this new movie already or not: I’m just talking about the character in general. Why does he resonate so strongly with so many people, so much so that he was the logical choice for the first character from the previous gang’s-all-here X-Men movies to get his own movie?

What is the core of Wolverine’s appeal?
