Dangerous things can happen if you blend fantasy with reality.

Just ask Benjamin Price. Police say the 73-year-old Joliet man attacked another elderly man with a glove with knives attached, reports The Herald-News.

And you thought Wolverine was just a comic book character.

On Sunday, Price got into an argument with the Will County man just before 2 p.m. The altercation took a nasty turn though when Price attacked the man with the glove, which had two six-inch blades attached, according to The Herald-News.

Police have not yet determined just what the fight was about or where the glove came from.

We're guessing it didn't come from Macy's.

Price was arrested, and the victim was treated for serious cuts at a local hospital.
