SCOTS Wolverine fan Laura Hayton has called her new baby boy Logan after going into labour within hours of winning best costume at a Comic Con hosted by Utlimate X Men writer Mark Millar. 
Laura, from Coatbridge, who is a huge fan of the comic character had her costume made by her husband and waited for eight hours to meet Mark at the event. 
She said it felt great to get Mark’s blessing after he saw the outfit. 

She explained:”My husband Andrew and four year old son Nathan and I are over the moon that Logan is finally here. Andrew is very artistic and thinks of things that no one else really does. He came up with the idea and gave the outfit to me on Saturday morning. I'm usually up for anything especially with having a four year old. It's good to teach him not have any reservations about enjoying himself. 
“At the event it was tiring but I spent most of the time sitting down in the main hall listening to the Q+A's with the Outlander stars, Mark himself,  Robert Florence and Sanjeev Kholi. My husband introduced me to comics and the comic films, and Nathan loves Spiderman and the Marvel superhero comics. 
“Wolverine is one of my favourite films and my husband's favourite comic so he suggested the name Logan. He's definitely going to be a little superhero. I'm looking forward to seeing both my superheros growing up together.

She added: “The fact Mark has 'blessed' the baby is fantastic. I find it so funny and definitely a story that will be told at Logan's 21st.
A thrilled Mark Millar said: “The fact that Laura has now called her baby Logan after Hugh Jackman’s famous character is the cherry on the cake. It almost feels made up. Our host, the brilliant Glasgow comedian Billy Kirkwood, who was giving his services for free, picked Laura out from about thirty entries on stage. There were some great costumes here and Billy was left in the genuinely difficult position of choosing, especially given more than half of the entries were young kids. 
“Laura’s wee boy shouted from the audience, super-proud, that his Mum was having her baby on Monday and Billy looked around at this girl with the big pregnant bump who had brought her kid to the event for the entire eight hours and said ‘well, your Mum’s just won £100’. 
The money had been donated by Residence Estate Agents and it was the perfect end to a great show. The costume was utterly brilliant, two baby Wolverine claws busting out of her tummy. In a crowd of great costumes it was the stand-out and also means we can sell an extra ticket for the event next time!”
Mark added:”We all had a ball at the show and I’ve had a great time putting on these big events in my old Townhead area of Coatbridge. We’ve got a big Santa Experience planned for Nov 24th and a free Christmas dinner for all pensioners at an Abba Tribute night in December. My wife Lucy and I have enjoyed all these more than anyone.”
