Killable Part Five of Six
Issue opens with Wolverine’s reaction to Silver Samurai’s cut to his eye. I do like how the creative team tells and shows that Wolverine got a cut across his eye, yet the reveal if the damage done takes several pages to be shown.
Wolverine continues to be beaten by The Hand.
He stumbles away from that encounter, to surprise a lone Hand member. That guy surrenders but Wolverine doesn’t give a dman and kills him. An easy kill, and an unnecessary death. This is the page that shows Wolverine’s eye bleeding. I forget he has blue eyes. Just like Captain America, Batman and Superman.
We cut to Kitty Pryde, the mall cops and the rest of the mall shoppers. We get the name of one of the lady officers, Kathy Stubbs. This group is held up in a safe place.
Wolverine comes in, badly injured and he reveals to everyone in the room that he killed killed the ninja that tried to surrendered.
This upsets Kitty, as X-Men don’t kill.
The mustached mutant hater officer gets angry over the revelation. Pointing fingers and calling Wolverine an animal.
This engages Wolverine, and he cuts the officer’s hand.
Kitty rushes over to the injured officer, asking anyone for a tourniquet. Turns out, the officer was Mystique! I didn’t know that she can have a hand cut off, and then still have a hand when she shape shifts. Mystique taunts Kitty and Wolverine, then crashes through a window.
Kitty tries to sooth Wolverine, telling him that he must have known on some level that he knew it was Mystique. I reckon that he didn’t, and would have permanently injured a man, whose real crime was name calling. Though he was prejudiced, so he probably had it coming to him.
Wolverine leaves the room, searching for Sabretooth. Once he finds him, we see him wearing a sharp business suit. Then we see Sabretooth just straight up beat Wolverine.
Issue ends with Sabretooth very awkwardly standing over Wolverine. Sabretooth might just win next issue.
