Nonsense! Wolverines are just bigger than badgers. Wolverines are simply bad-tempered, while badgers are bad-tempered and cunning (and, being closer to the ground, more cthonic). Of course, there is the honey badger kills for sport, just like people do.
Badger also pops up as a trickster figure from time to time, though not nearly as often as coyote. Of course, the American south has Brer Rabbit (rabbit appears as a trickster figure in both African and Amer Indian cultures). And, although I'm somewhat arachniphobic, Anansi is one of my favorite trickster figures. Wolverines more interesting? The very idea! Feh.
