Ever since Marvel announced this title, I couldn’t help but think it was another shameless marketing scheme. Alongside Spider-Man, Wolverine is the House of Idea’s most marketable and overused character, and they just love throwing him into as many monthly titles as they can. Let’s just take a moment to think it over…exactly how many ongoing titles has Wolverine starred in the past few years?
Well, there was New Avengers, Avengers, Mighty Avengers, X-Men, X-Force, Uncanny X-Men, New X-Men, Spider-Man & Wolverine, Ultimate X-Men, Wolverine: Origins, Wolverine…need I say more? So you won’t hate me for holding my doubts about this book.
But surprisingly, it’s been a really good read. It’s nothing special, but it gets the whole ‘mutants vs. the world’ type of story…and it executes it fairly well. While Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo might not be the most creative team at Marvel, they’re definitely having a lot of fun with the characters. Check out a preview of their new issue below.
