Agreed, I'm all for clarity and precision.
Cool was 1960s argot from the 1950's beat folks. References something that's accepted even though it's known to hide things which are not acceptable.
Kewl is from the 1990s and it's even pronounced differently - meaning desirable/pleasant emotional connotation.
From the ironic to the post-ironic.
Now back to our story where Wolverine thinks he has a deal on a butler but thanks to Alfred, Bruce Wayne has him seeing double. ;)
