WOLVERINE IS 5' 3"

*Click image to enlarge*

Dig these preview pages of the upcoming ASTONISHING X-MEN: GHOST BOXES #1(of 2). The mini-series is essentially a "Steampunk X-Men" version of the current Astonishing X-Men book, with perty art by ADI "Iron Man" GRANOV. While I've since dropped the regular Astonishing X-Men book because its garbage, I will pick this mini up.

However, I'd like to point out that Wolverine, once again, has been drawn waaay too tall. Why are some artist and editors at Marvel unable to grasp this simple fact: Wolverine is 5-ft 3-inches tall. Yes, he's SHORT... hence the name! Here's a visual adjustment because I care too much:
Heights (according to official Marvel Universe Stats):

* BEAST:
[normally 5'11"] (but who knows now that he's all fucked up catman)
* EMMA: 5' 10" (without heels)
* CYCLOPS: 6' 3"
* WOLVERINE: 5' 3"
