Who, you might ask, is Logan?

After a blockbuster opening weekend, you may be among the few in the whole wide world who does not know that Logan is the name of Wolverine, here downplayed as a comic book superhero and presented more as a human being, albeit, a so-called mutant human being, played again with brooding gusto by Hugh Jackman.
