Welcome to the next installment of C.C. Banana’s adventures at the 2011 New York Comic Con! Today the Banana (in the guise of Wolverine) takes on the great Cully Hamner. As with most C.C.

Midtown Children of the Blog! Raph here, with a little interview. Wolverine and Cyclops have ended their on-again, off-again bromance. Wolverine has taken a couple of key X-Men and most of the kids back to Westchester, to allow them to learn and be children.
