Who Erased Wolverine's Canadian Past?

Leave it to the folks over in the Edmonton Paintball Forums to notice: Trailers for the new Wolverine movie have our favorite super-healing mutant in a U.S. military uniform rather than a Canadian one. Has Hollywood beaten the poutine out of Wolverine? Readers of the comics may remember that the Weapon X Program, which turned Wolverine into a super-soldier with an Adamantium skeleton, was based in Canada. Yeah, the United States was funneling money to the program, but it was still Canadian and so was Wolverine. Check out that comic book cover of him with a maple leaf on his face if you don't believe me. We hope that he's just wearing that U.S. uniform temporarily in the new movie, and that his proud Canadian heritage remains intact. [Wolverine Is No Longer Canadian :( via Edmonton Paintball Forums]
