When James finally starts going grey, you would have thought the entire bloody world had caught on fire.
It’s Sirius who spots it first, the one shining silver strand in the mass of black hair on James’ head. They’re trooping in, brooms over their shoulders, mud on their quidditch boots, and James has Harry wrapped up under his arm, rubbing his head while Harry laughs at James’ insistence that “You can’t slag off your old man. I would have kicked your arse back in the day.”
“Yeah,” Harry yells, elbowing his father in the side, “back in the day.” Sirius barks a laugh, claps Harry on the back, “Nice one, kid.” James shoots him a glare and he shoves James’ shoulder, “Tough break, mate. Though your kid kicking your arse goes nicely with that grey hair you’ve got there. Very fitting.”
When Lily finds them a few minutes later, Harry is doubled over, barely breathing with laughter, and James and Sirius are nothing more than a tangle of limbs on the now excruciatingly muddy kitchen floor. She pulls out her wand, twirls it deftly between her fingers, calmly threatens to hex them within an inch of their lives if they don’t get up right now and clean the floor.

A more flashy version of my new pony (dark) piece that is based on the end of this fan fic called The Devils Trick written by Soundslikeponies. Scribbler on youtube did a dramatic reading of it which inspired the scene behind this image.

There’s no shortage of web articles about Wolvie’s extensive wardrobe and I’ve covered, pretty much, what a quick Google search will. I have no interest in covering everything in Logan’s wardrobe, especially some of the dumber ones (looking at you, devolved Wolverine) and there are a bunch of “one-off” outfits from alternate realities and mini-series and what not. I have very little to cover that others haven’t already. However, I do have this: the blue and purple “stealth” outfit from Marvel Comics Presents #150. I’ve never seen any website or magazine cover it so, ha.
This is where my Wolvie knowledge puts the fucking pedal to the metal. The outfit was worn in the celebratory 150th issue of MCP, which was used to resolve a series of story threads about Daredevil-villain Typhoid Mary. The issue is 90s to the max with the third Ghost Rider (Vengence) who is purple, because 90s, and Daredevil and his heinous 90s armor. The Wolvie costume was designed by that issue’s artist, Steve Lightle. Lightle was one of my favorites in the 90s and I rather like this commando-esque outfit. I mean the purple and buckles are pretty 90s, but still, it’s creative (even if slightly reminiscent of Hawkeye). I bet he kept Tic-Tacs in the pouches.
It turned out Steve Lightle is a Kansas City guy and I had the chance to meet him at a convention. I was probably 17 or 18 and I mentioned this costume to him and he said that it didn’t seem appropriate Logan would sneak around in yellow and he proposed a special outfit. It was never used in the comics again, but did appear slightly altered in the 90s-cartoon and had an action figure. I mentioned the figure to Lightle and he laughed and called it, due to them selecting the wrong color values, “Mardi Gras Wolverine.”
Fat Tuesday or not, Logan proves that purple can be stealthy, but maybe not very mammalian.
