I wish the cover didn’t remind us of how silly Wolverine died.
I like how the two miniseries – Logan Legacy and Weapon X Program, funnel into this series. Weapon X Program sets up Shogun and Logan Legacy gets the big name characters involved.
Six Months From Now . . . Mystique is covered in blood. This is an odd place for this comment but I really miss reading Nick Bradshaw’s art. Mystique has to walk out the door, after accomplishing everything that her Destiny said.
Right now. Sabretooth, who is still inverted from AXIS, so he’s a good guy – is fighting Thunderball of the Wrecking Crew. Shogun is fighting Wrecker, which makes sense, as they are the leaders of their two teams. Lady Deathstrike is fighting a lady Bulldozer and Piledriver. It looks like Skel is trying to help her.
X23, Daken and Junk are amazed to see what they are seeing.
An hour ago. Nevada. Shogan has lead the Wolverines and the Weapon X Program experiments to the site of Wolverine’s death, Paradise. For some reason, the Weapon X folks are wearing battle armor. That is probably explained in Logan Legacy 7.
Neuro states that this facility should be stripped clean.
Endo and X23 have a nice chat, both have been transformed by the Weapon X facility.
The united folks see the Wrecking Crew driving up in a jeep. Mystique reveals that she is the banking this team, probably from all of that money Bendis wrote her stealing in Al New and Uncanny. The A-Listers need the Weapon X people, as they can die as well. So both groups need each other.
Shogun keeps hinting at the agenda, we’ll learn it eventually. Sabretooth explains that he changed, so Wolverine died, AXIS happened, Logan Legacy occured and now this series.
It is weird, right, that Daken and Sabretooth are wearing the same outfit?
They keep hinting at what the item is, it is clearly Wolverine PLUS the cover shows that.
Daken calling Sabretooth, killer, seems pointless. Everyone on this team is a killer.
I like Lady Deathstrike’s reaction to Neuro saying that he is dying. Everyone is dying, sure it sucks that some do before their believed time, but in the end, we are all dying.
Shogun and Sabretooth are having a nice chat. Ogun is telling Sharp to kill Sabretooth. What history do those two even share?
Victor is concern about Daken.
I sort of like bad guys calling themselves, bad guys. Why pretend to be otherwise?
Skel is failing miserably to hit on Lady Deathstrike. They come across Piledriver and the new Bulldozer.
Daken, X23 and Junk are exploring. Daken is not on his game here. Is he still suffering from whatever officially brought him back to life after the Apocalypse Twins made him into one of their Horsemen? I wasn’t sure if he was brought fully to life, as Banshee seems to be dead still. As is Sentry.
They find what they are looking for, the adamantium covered Wolverine. Is this how the X-Men found out he was dead, by X23 seeing the ‘statue’ and letting the X-Men know what happened? That must be it.
Endo asks Mystique what it feels like to shapeshift and realizing what the real her is. Mystique’s secret? She doesn’t care.
Ogun apparently has been keeping up with supervillains.
Is that why there is a new lady Bulldozer, so that she can fight Lady Deathstrike?
Daken is about to secure his father’s statue form when Mister Sinister appears! Instead of his Marauders, he has hired the Wrecking Crew – and paying them by the hour. Are they going to file time sheets?
There is an ad for “No More Mutants’ with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver that was teased at a comic book convention, now we know this is for the newly relaunced Uncanny Avengers Volume Two.
Mister Sinister gets his hands dirty and in a big bad way! He rips off Daken’s left arm and his left eye. Which is pretty messed up. Sinister doesn’t want to bother with X23 as she is only a clone. At least he didn’t also throw in her face that she is a former prostitute.
Sinister teleports out of there and Junk is confused why X23 cares about Daken. Issue ends with her revealing to Junk that Daken no longer has his healing factor.
I’m set to get issues nine through twelve but I have to buy issues two through eight (if Shogun is in them, which I imagine he is) so I will try to buy these issues at Hastings. If not, hopefully DBCS has them eventually at a steep discount – which was my original plan.
. . .
Like we did last year, I want to keep track of the Top Ten Comics of 2015 –
1. Wolverines 1
2. Death of Wolverine : Weapon X Program 5
