The "10 Year Challenge" has been sweeping the Internet in recent days, and the newest entry is hitting Marvel fans in the feels.
The official Twitter account for the Deadpool franchise recently shared a rather heartbreaking entry to the meme, poking fun at Hugh Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine. The two photos show Wolverine in X-Men Origins: Wolverine alongside his grave site shortly after his death in Logan.
