Wolverine Hellfire Gala Art Highlights Mistake The MCU Can’t Make

New X-Men Hellfire Gala art shows Wolverine and Jean Gray dancing, showing that the MCU can’t make the same mistake regarding Logan’s height.

Warning! Spoilers for Marvel Comics’ X-Men’s Hellfire Gala

In a great new cover starring Wolverine and Jean Gray for X-Men expectant Hellfire Gala event by Nick Dragotta and Rico Renzi, Marvel Comics highlights something great about Logan that the MCU can’t ignore: his height. In the picture, Wolverine is dancing with his greatest love, Jean Grey, because their height difference is remarkable. Seen how Wolverine’s short stature has been ignored in previous live-action X-Men movies, the variant cover shows exactly what the MCU should do.

Wolverine’s height has long been an integral part of the character’s persona, as despite his 5’3″ height, Logan has proven that he doesn’t need to be tall to inflict serious damage on anyone he encounters. X-Men has never let his height stop him, which greatly deepens his on-again, off-again relationship with Jean Grey, who towers over Wolverine in the comics. X-Men movies is iconic, seeing a comedic, accurate, short version of the hero, as opposed to the 6’3″ Jackman, would be a welcome sight when the character eventually joins the MCU – where they can avoid the same mistake.

In new comic cover art for Marvel’s upcoming Hellfire Gala #1 by Marvel Comics by Nick Dragotta and Rico Renzi, Wolverine and Jean Gray dance the high-fashion affair. Jean Gray wears her awesome costume designed by Jen Bartel, while Wolverine chooses to wear a tuxedo with his claws unsheathed. The image is especially great for the way it highlights the difference in height between Logan and Jean, as the telepathic hero doesn’t see the taboo, and even makes himself taller by wearing a pair of heels.

It may seem like a small detail, but the height difference in the Hellfire Gala cover art is one of the best details about Wolverine and Jean Gray’s relationship during their adventures with the X-Men. Logan is a little king and don’t let his perceived shortcomings when it comes to his height deter him. Instead, he embraces it, as his confidence has helped him win Jean Grey’s affections.

Hopefully, the X-Men’s 2022 Hellfire Gala further shows Wolverine and Jean Gray on the dance floor, because honestly, it’s cute. Their height difference is a small part of what makes pairing so much fun. Hopefully, when the MCU decides to cast Wolverine and Jean Gray in the live-action X-Men movie, they keep Logan at his usual height in the comics and longtime fans are finally getting a comically accurate look at the hero. Not keeping Wolverine short would be a mistake. Readers can pick up Dragotta and Renzi’s Wolverine-starring variant coverage when X-Men Hellfire Gala #1 from Marvel Comics arrives in comic book stores on July 13.
