What is up with the wolverine? Am I missing a joke here? Possibly a reference somewhere else? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

That is a reference to Wolverine, the Marvel Comics character, who has retractable "claws" stowed in his forearms and come out the back of his hands. The claws of an actual wolverine, like others in the family Mustelidae, are permanently extended. Nutster (talk) 12:41, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
It seems to me like the Wolverine thing is almost a non sequitur. I think a better comparison would be "like calling an engineering student a 'forcelord'" or "calling an astronomy PhD a 'Starlord'", or a pharmacologist a 'Druglord'. -- Angel (talk) 13:02, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
Agree. Update made. 13:19, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

If you are actually an "edgelord", wouldn't you answer "no" anyway to provoke once again? Fabian42 (talk) 08:40, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

I feel like there should be some discussion of what an edge (or hyper-edge) is in graph theory. 10:20, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Good that he doesn't call his plumber a shitlord. Might need one again. 11:54, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

So... is the joke just a half-working pun on "edge", or am I missing something? 14:28, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Yes < 15:29, 22 August 2018 (UTC)>

So… Does this mean that white hat has a PhD in Graph Theory? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

It seems so. But please sign your comments. --Dgbrt (talk) 18:54, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
Well, the White Hat in this comic has one. Doesn't necessarily imply the same thing about White Hats in any other comics. 08:19, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Nothing to do with the Doctor who is a Time Lord? -- 20:16, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
