wolverineI remember there was a line of dialogue in the first X-Men movie. It was just after the entire team had suited up for the first time in those leather costumes that basically became the “look” of the team in the movies and Wolverine makes some crack about their costumes. One of the characters, I think it was Cyclops, quips something along the lines of “would you prefer yellow spandex?”. An obvious crack at the fact that one of Marvel’s biggest baddasses, Wolverine, wears yellow spandex in the comic.
