    Maybe one of us should edit that out?
    Or maybe his 'characterisation' in X-Men counts as autism? (Something I know next to nothing about.)

    Are you saying you know next to nothing about his characterization in X-Men? I'm confused...

    I'm saying, I hate saurkraut.

    Also, autism. I know nothing about that. To find people who know nothing about characterisation in X-Men, you'll have to talk to its writers.

    I know a lot about autism. No, the character is not autistic at all. Yes, I have personal experience. No, Box is not autistic.

    Weapon VIII attempted to create enhanced soldiers using power suits. Weapon Alpha (aka Guardian) was the only success.

    Technically, he is the only battle-suit type we've seen come out of the Canadian Gov't. ('cept Groundhog, who used his same armour, and Heather, who did too, 'cept later...)

    Yeah, it was more the fact he's Weapon 8 which would have meant Mac would have made the suit before Wolverine was captured and made into Weapon 10, and thus before him & Heather found Logan.

    Frankly, I always read it as either "Weapon X" (and ask 'which one?'), "Weapon Alpha" (and think Mac!), or "Weapon blah blah blah".
    S'rously, that's how my mind happens.

    embarrassed emoticon.

    I don't read much Weapon Anything outside of Alpha, and tend to forget some of the later stuff in Alpha that you mentioned.
