Logan’s Power – Short
Logan turns up to work dressed as Wolverine from Marvel’s X-Men in a bid to impress a female colleague, as you might expect it does not go well, it goes pretty horrifically. Logan’s Power is a short film from Michael Lamarra following Logan, a 28 year old comic book geek who can’t catch a break, he lives with his brother, thinks he’s hopelessly in love with a girl who’s only feigning politeness, and is completely oblivious to the affections of his best friend Kat.
Proudly walking into work as Wolverine, under the guise of testing out his costume ahead of comic-con, Logan is blissfully unaware that while no one else at his office is impressed (least of whom Jean), his efforts do get the attention of his best friend Kat. Logan’s attraction to Jean, a woman who is more than wrong for him, makes him miss the obviousness of Kat’s affections and the love triangle that is staring him in the face. On top of this his brother is less than supportive, in fact he’s a jackass who won’t even let him ride in the same car as him. What ensues is a comic tragedy of events that makes the viewer wonder: can Logan see what’s staring him in the face and find happiness?
Logan’s Power is well shot and well written with equal moments of cringe and humour in showing us Logan’s kamikaze love life. Though clearly a celebration of comic book culture – the character names are all references – the short is a classic story of girl likes boy, boy likes other girl, other girl isn’t interested. Logan’s Power is worth watching for the funny, strutting, opening sequence alone but there are plenty more laughs along the way and by the end it turns out to be genuinely touching.

This looks hilarious. Who doesn’t like a comic book nerd?
