Description

A PART OF THE CHARACTERISTIC OF WOLVERINE IS BEING PERCEIVED AS BEING A MANIAC. ONE KNOWN FOR HAVING A MAJOR TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCE AND OVERCOMING IT. HE IS JUDGED UNFAIRLY BY SOCIETY AS HE IS DIFFERENT, YET HAS BEAUTIFUL QUALITIES.

I, ALONGSIDE MANY OTHER MEN, HAVE SUFFERED WITH MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS. THIS MADE ME ANXIOUS, CONFUSED AND ANGRY. IT PREVENTED ME FROM BEING HAPPY AND AT TIMES ACTING AGGRESSIVELY TOWARDS PEOPLE. I WOULD CONFIDE IN PEOPLE WHO I TRUSTED AT THE TIME AND WAS GASLIGHTED AND CALLED NAMES SUCH AS MANIAC WHEN I WAS UNABLE TO REGULATE MY EMOTIONS. WITH THERAPY, DISCIPLINE AND ART I WAS ABLE TO HEAL MYSELF, JUST LIKE THE ICONIC LEADER DEPICTED ON THE BACK OF THE JACKET.
