List of X-Men to Which A. Dunn Has Compared Himself

Actually, it’s a pretty short list. But I’ll argue that Adam Dunn comparing himself to even one X-Man (singular?) merits some attention.

Discussing his return from an appendectomy, Dunn said the following to reporters:

One thing I definitely don’t want to do is miss Opening Day at home. I’m going home tonight and planning on playing tomorrow and we’ll go from there. If it’s really sore and if I’m feeling like this tomorrow, we might have some problems. I’m anticipating it getting better. I’m a quick healer, like Wolverine. I asked the doctor yesterday how long these things take and he gave me a general answer for the public. I’m subtracting 15 days off it. If I can tolerate [the pain], then I want to play. I don’t mind playing when I’m not 100 percent.

Technically, the emphasis is mine. In reality, the emphasis is everybody’s.

    I remember owning that very same Wolverine blow up (I think it was a hammer?) when I was a kid, and wondering why they placed the blow hole on this wiener.

    Truly gives a second meaning to “blowing up your wolverine inflatable”

    When Dunn uses his claws to slice a baseball up he’ll expect an apology, or at least a retraction.

    The Chicago Sun-Times has the quote as, ““But I am a quick healer. Like a wolverine.” Which makes no sense. Clearly the reporter didn’t get the X-Men reference.

    And yet he was healthy enough to go baby seal clubbing that very night. Gotta love A. Dunn.

    With all due respect to Mr. Dunn, his rotund physique and superhuman strength makes the Blob a much more accurate X-Men comp.
