So my quest to collect every appearance of Ogun is now going to start biting me in the arse. Looks like Ogun, in his new body, is going to appear everywhere.
Croatia. A guard is walking X23 to her cell. In the cell is Sabretooth, who is fighting Daken. There is also a guy in a cloak, sitting cross legged in a corner. The guard pushes X23 through one of the walls of the cell. She turns around and tries to get back out but the walls are electric. You can enter it easily but not leave. Daken knocks out Sabretooth. Daken explains that Sabretooth was already in the cell, as was the cloaked person.
Daken comments on X23’s blue streak in her hair. She is starting her emo phase, I suppose. He is sincere in his comment.
The guard is now walking Lady Deathstrike into the cell. She jumps behind him and tries to kill him. He whispers, caterpillar, and she falls asleep. He touches her into the cell. Sabretooth is now coming along. X23 wants to take Sabretooth down again. He makes the crude comment that he is willing to do down anytime she wants. She’s the clone of his greatest rival, it seems so out of place. He wants to go down on Wolverine but with girl parts? Weird but I’ve never been in such a rivalry.
Sabretooth points out the cloaked figure, he was there before Sabretooth got there. The cloaked man stands up, removing his hood. He calls Daken, Dark Wolverine. It’s Professor Xavier! No one wastes time telling him that a) he should be dead and b) that Wolverine is dead.
Now we are getting into the structure of this miniseries. Issue one and seven are bookends, the other issues are going to be spotlight issues on what lead to each character being tossed into the sell. X23’s story is first, she sets up issue two – which I already have preordered as Kitty Pryde was in the preview pages. Sabretooth and Lady Deathstrike reference Death of Wolverine issue 2. That was were we last saw them last see Logan. Lady Deathstrike’s story is issue four. Daken’s story is in issue five, people are selling pieces of Wolverine in auctions. How did they break apart the adamantium? Sabretooth’s story is in issue three. Apparently issue three is going to deal with some regular dude who has knives taped to the back of his hand.
X23 actually has two streaks of color in her hair, blue and yellow. Glad Sabretooth mention the colors as I didn’t notice the yellow before.
Xavier is really Mystique, his wife! Though how she guessed at Lady Deathstrike’s story about the honor blade, is beyond me. Sabretooth throws Xavier into the wall and now we see an unconscious Mystique. Her story takes place in issue six.
Is, Sabretooth, not a proper word? It keeps coming up as a misspelled word.
Lady Deathsrike also wants to know how Mystique knew about the honor sword.
Elixir is now thrown into the cell, I haven’t seen that guy in years.
Now a new man in a red mask appears. He introduces the guard, Skel. He doesn’t say his name as it is rather complicated. The mysterious guy, who I will just jump ahead and call him Ogun, due to the red mask as seen below.
He reveals that Doctor Abraham Cornelius, somehow, captured those in the cell, and tampered with both their memories and their minds. They all have trigger words. First word puts them to sleep, second word is a suggestive word that puts them under the speaker’s voice sway, third word kills the person and the fourth word is a mystery, for the moment.
Ogun wants the stories everyone was hinting at earlier. So that is being set up. He steps out of the shadows –
Ogun has a new body!
So I have issue two coming to me and pending on Ogun’s appearances in it, I may have to get the other issues in the series.
