Wolverine First Class #5
Unknowingly commented on 8 pages of this issue before even reading it:
Wolverine Killing Made Simple Not So Special Special:
Plus you get 6 pages of this free issue at:
And there's this 1/2page scan:
: Well, this was yet another disappointing AF
: issue. Not only does it right off the bat
: conflict with past continuity by claiming
: this is the first mission the team goes on
: when the AF Special tells otherwise,
Agreed! Hated that among other apparent pointless (hopefully fixable) retcons. And even little ones like: didnt Shaman have that costume when he delivered Narya into this world? Also this implies Marinna promotion from Beta Flight happened differently, eh?
: but instead of using my favorite AF'ers
: (Sasquatch, Puck), they go with Shaman,
: Aurora and Snowbird.
: I know Logan picked those certain team
: members because of their abilities and the
: mission, but I just think the issue would
: have had more "juice" to it if
: they had used Sasquatch and Puck.
Didnt mind that too much as Logan showed smarts for the reasons you point out. But yeah, a Walt cameo -at least- wouldve been nice.
: I also didn't care for the whole "man
: in adamantium exosuit" deal.
Citadel was a terribly forced and cliché character. Weapon Y will probably be an annoying addition to the Weapon X mythos. From this adventure to his death their were countless times AND methods to probe for information from him rather than create him only to use a device showing Logan's anst over not being able to figure out his past. And who knew metal poisoning caused memory loss.
: It was nice seeing some of the old classic
: members, but overall I would give this issue
: a "C" and that's being generous.
That IS being generous.
Curious, were Snowbird and Aurora that catty originally? And who is resigned? Who is KIA? And is that Lil and Kyle next to Aurora? Who is right of Shaman? Why not mention why Vindicator didnt suit up too?
