Bordertown, Part One of Three
Once again, I don’t have much connection with Old Man Logan. I’ve read issue 71, issue five of his first volume and now this fifth issue of his second volume. Oh, and his appearances in Extraordinary X-Men.
Here is what has been happening in the previous issues –
Now that Old Man Logan finds himself in the present, he wants to ensure that his future can never come to pass. Though why he doesn’t just keep disappearing and staying the heck away from the X-Men, is beyond me. If a group of villains attack the school, Old Man Logan just needs to make sure he walks out the back door and everyone should be okay. I guess in the previous four issues, Old Man Logan has had a sequence of guest appearances.
X-Haven. Refuge for Mutantkind and Headquarters of the X-Men. Located in the Limbo dimension. Storm is hanging out with some students but Old Man Logan wants to ask her something. He wants a leave of absence.
Storm is okay with him leaving, as long as he takes a mini-Cerebras. He doesn’t want any support from the X-Men but Storm wants him to have it, in case they need him.
Storm offers to have Cerebra or Magik teleport him someplace, which is enough for me to buy this issue. He just needs to leave Limbo, he can take care of the rest.
Old Man Logan travels to Killhorn Falls, Northwest Territory of Canada. This is where he lived his later years from his timeline.
He meets a young Maureen, a teenage version of his future wife. This guy, can’t stop finding younger versions of women he loves. Maureen welcomes him into their community, after he scares off some bullies. He is going to try to settle down here and be a part time X-Man, I guess.
Issue ends with Lady Deathstrike, her first appearance since Wolverines and Secret Wars 2015 and a new gang of Reavers. Hopefully Maureen makes it out of this stroyline alive.
