    people are just more into the mystery that was associated with his origin...not knowing was cooler for some people. the guy is 200+ years old....still mystery in there somewhere..eloels

    I don't have a problem with the origins story, they could have just made the same story and left out the rediculous bone claw angle and I would have been fine with it.

    ^^^ya they retconned that his father was a demon, and his mom was some gypsy witch

    and ya my main issue is that i would've rather him continued to just be mysterious, although style has a good point, that he would've been a scared kid at sme point regardless...but i disagree about the evolved animal status, i literally read uncanny 94-245 (ish) and nowhere do they mention the evolved animal thing (although i agree that was the plan having seen that mentioned by claremont, byrne, and len wein in interviews), although up until around the time paul smith or john romita jr does the art they mention 'bionic claws extending from housings in his forearms' almost every single issue...unless i'm mistaken (which i could be, most of this stuff was out before i was alive or reading comics) the weapon x story is the first time it's made reasonably explicit that his claws aren't an enhancement.
