Screenshot Saturday: Wolverine and the X-Men (Episode 7) Comic Books 24 APR 2010

Apart from the pretty cool Hulk versus Wolverine short that made it straight to DVD in the form of Hulk Vs., Wolverine also managed to find himself going up against the unstoppable rampage that is the Incredible Hulk in Wolverine and the X-Men episode 7, entitled “Wolverine vs. the Hulk”.

Despite Wolverine's true intentions, I'm pretty sure that he kind of enjoyed this particular payback punch. (Besides, it's always safer to punch the Hulk when he's not actually around!)

Episode 7 of Wolverine and the X-Men is another solo Wolverine episode as he finds himself getting blackmailed by Nick Fury to lend a helping hand to S.H.I.E.L.D., this time to quell an apparently rampaging Incredible Hulk that seems to be destroying a great deal of small towns in the remote Canadian wilderness.

Of course, as with everything that involves Nick Fury, not all is as it seems and after a knockdown, fist bloodying fight, Wolverine and a transformed Bruce Banner finally get their heads around what exactly is going on here – not that it’s all that much of a help when it comes to dealing with the mutagenic Wendigo monster of course!

However, despite all the battles that come to pass, there is really only one thing on Wolverine’s mind when he finally comes face to face with good old Nick again – payback.

And this time it’s going to be courtesy of a rampaging Hulk!

(Though he might take a nasty flight through the chilly air to initiate it of course!)

Basically: "Oh shit, WTF have you done you lunatic". Or something like that...

You've gotta admit, the thought of the ever smug Nick Fury, S.H.I.E.L.D. and an angry Hulk should always bring a smile to one's face!
