Wolverine 72 (Sorry for Spoilers)


I have been following the OLD MAN LOGAN story in Wolverine for several months now. The premise of the tale is that all the villains decide to gang up on the heroes and take them all out in one giant push leaving very few behind. A blind Hawkeye finds a Logan who has given up his violent ways to raise his family on some poor farmland in California. His family is menaced by some Hulk-punks so he has to take a job driving across the new villain controlled USA. For the most part the story was kind of dull without enough about the huge battle that ended the age of heroes for my liking. We all knew that something would happen to force Logan to give up his peaceful ways and become the Wolverine we all know and love. Who would have thought it would have happened in the White House where the Red Skull ruled as President complete with his own trophy room of fallen heroes. Keeping to form the twisted Skull wears the costume of his vanquished foe - Captain America and as per usual the stupid henchmen bring the supposedly dead Logan into his office so that Logan can revive from his wounds to lay the smack down on the Red Skull. Its not spoiling anything to say that the battle was pretty much over once Logan found his cajones again with a little help from a symbolic friend. And this isn't even the last chapter yet! Started slow but OH BOY its going to end fantastic. Check out these panels and get on board now.

Good, I guess. But so violent. Guess I am just an "old fogey".

Thanks Peteparker...fixed that. I usually prefer my comics a little less bloody too Wings but this is Wolverine so I am bathing in it and the Skull SOOOOO had it coming.

That was hawt. Thanks. I sadly lost touch with comics a couple years back but need to get back soon, working on a final edit of my graphic novel script and don't want to appear out of touch.
