Outrageous retcon of a beloved character's origin!

If Cronin can find these, so can I, consarnit it! This is just so very, very wrong.

Here's a fine issue of Alpha Flight, #8 of the second volume, to be exact, with a cover date of March 1998. It's written by Steven T. Seagle and drawn by Scott Clark. Look at that awesome artwork!

Makes perfect sense, doesn't it? So what happens less than five years later? In X-Men #142 from August 2003 (but mentioned about a year earlier), some hack named Grant Morrison (come on, that sounds like a made-up name, doesn't it?) changes that excellent reasoning behind Wolverine's code name. More than that, just like historical precedent, he changes it from Greek to Roman, much like the Romans of old appropriated everything from the ancient Greeks and tried to pass it off as their own. THIS SHALL NOT STAND!!!!! (And Chris Bachalo, who drew this, doesn't get a free pass - he should have protested more!)

Way to go, Mr. "Morrison." How dare you crap all over the hard work of Mr. Seagle and Mr. Clark. HAVE YOU NO SHAME?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?????
