A comic book illustrator has made a drawing of Wolverine in a hospital bed, saying he was “like a cartoon turkey”.
The drawing, posted on Reddit, features Wolverine in the hospital room with a red bandage covering his head and arms.
Mr James said he drew the image while “doing a cartoon drawing in the midst of a wound”.
The Reddit post has been shared more than 2,500 times since it was posted last week.
Mr Jayden said he and his wife had been dealing with an illness since March.
“My wife is in the ICU,” Mr Jaydeon said.
I’ve been doing this cartoon drawing of her, and I have been getting some awful emails from people saying, ‘I want to get this drawing of him in my hospital room’.””
She’s getting worse and worse and we are worried about her.”
I’ve been doing this cartoon drawing of her, and I have been getting some awful emails from people saying, ‘I want to get this drawing of him in my hospital room’.
“I just want to be able to draw this for my wife, and if I can do it in this way, she’ll be able see it and it’ll be worth it.”
Mr Jaydaen said the drawing had inspired him to make a “cartoon turkey” in the drawing’s hospital room.
He added that his wife, who is in her 60s, had a serious infection.
He said he would “never do anything like this again” and added that he had received a few supportive emails.
“The message that I’m getting from so many people is, ‘Thank you for doing this.
I know how hard it is for you, and it’s nice to see people out there who care’,” he said.
Mr Jones said he had been told that it was a “sad story”.
“The fact that someone is suffering like that and that it’s going to happen to a child is just heartbreaking,” he said, adding that he would continue to draw Wolverine cartoons.
The image of Wolverine was originally created by cartoonist John Byrne, who died last year.
He first created the character in 1954, and was inspired by a cartoon in which the character was given a wheelchair by his father.
“I’ve never had a child who has a disability like this, so I can only imagine what it must be like for a child like this,” Mr Jones told ABC News.
“That’s what I’m trying to draw here.”
A spokesperson for the Wounded Warriors Project, a charity that works with veterans and their families, said it was “deeply saddened” by the post.
“These sickening images are not the work of a professional artist, they are the work, and work that our community has to continue to do to heal from such terrible trauma,” the spokesperson said.
