Real Life Wolverine Rescues Coworkers After Explosion

Meet Ricardo Fuentes of Mexico City. Ricardo recently pulled several of his coworkers to safety after a methane explosion at the state-run Pemex oil headquarters killed 37 others. When reached for comment why he was unable to save more lives, Ricardo had this to say, "I'm not the f***ing Flash." But seriously, a moment of silence for those who weren't so lucky. Per Google translated webpage:

Just when I was helping these people I was photographed. Resembling the character was no coincidence, as a teenager I liked the character from the comics.


"All my friends call me Logan, since I was in high school, this up here (his hair) I comb my hair back and leave alone, then I laugh at these situations in the office because I said that it seems I have horns head and I reply that my hair well so they do not see me, "he laughs.

But Ricardo believes that comparisons are unnecessary when a coincidence put several factors at a site.

"It's not because I've got to find fame, then demanded it, was what was needed and the guy who took the picture could be or could not be and the same would have gone unnoticed, was a series of coincidences which are giving ".

There's the picture of Wolverine caught post-rescue after the jump. Say, you think if I dressed like Wolverine and did my hair like him everyday I could convince my friends to call me Logan? "Do they like you?" No. "Then probably not." What about Wolvie? "Doubt it." But I'm tiiiiired of being Farts McCloud.

Hit the jump for the shot of Wolverine in action.

Thanks to elrioe, who's such a superhero he would have prevented the explosion in the first place. Whoa, preventative heroing -- I like that.

There are Comments.
  • Wolverine aka Logan... Interesting post. Unheard and totally new post for me.

  • Miguel Valdez-Lopez

    GWriter, I'm dissapointed in you.

    Who are you to reveal the secret identity of one of our most beloved and decent-haircut-challenged superheroes?

  • Awesome. Proof that comics should be part of the curriculum at school

  • JJtoob

    Here's my translation:

    He was photographed as he was helping these people. It isn't a coincidence that he looks that particular way; he has liked the comic books character since he was a teenager.

    "All my friends call me Logan, since I was in high school, this up here (his hair) I comb it back and it comes out on its own, I then laugh from these situations because in the office they tell me it looks like I have horns on my head and I tell them I comb it that way so no one will notice them", he comments while laughing.

    ...

    But Ricardo thinks it's easy to make analogies when simple coincidence put various factors in one place.

    "It's not like I went in looking for fame, the moment called for it, it was necessary and the guy who took the picture could have been there or not and just the same it would have come to happen without notice, it was a series of coincidences that came to be".

    Next time, email me and I'll provide a proper translation, GW.
