Everyone is buzzing about this weekend’s release of “The Wolverine,” starring Hugh Jackman. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday were around $55 million and $86.1 million internationally.
Did you know that in the Marvel Universe the Wolverine first manifested his superhero strength in his adolescent years while attempting to save his parents and their estate? In the late 19th Century, Wolverine was born to wealthy landowners John and Elizabeth Howlett in Alberta, Canada. Their groundskeeper was a violent alcoholic who, after being fired, invaded the Howlett estate and attempted to kidnap Wolverine’s mother. It was at this moment that Wolverine mutated from a boy to a superhero. His claws came out along with an unbridled ferocity to safeguard his family.
Although we live in Florida and not in the Marvel universe, most individuals can relate to this innate desire to protect our loved ones. You can let our claws come out in a more subdued fashion by leaving behind a set of detailed instructions as to who can and cannot touch your estate.
