Wolverine: Not just a weapon, but an offensive one

A certain hirsute mutant may want to rethink that next trip to England.

The Coventry Telegraph reports that "deadly razor-sharp hand claws" were seized last week by customs officials at the international Parcelforce depot near Coventry Airport.

The "Tomahawk Claw Gauntlet," produced by Tomahawk U.S.A., is classified as an offensive weapon under British law, and will be destroyed. It had been destined for an address in London.

The newspaper describes the claws as "like those wielded by X-Men superhero Wolverine." I'm sure Marvel wants to be associated with that.

Hyped by the manufacturer as a "monstrous handspike" -- paging Dr. Freud -- that "will send your foes running in the other direction," the 17-inch gauntlet retails for $67.

Logan, consider yourself warned.
