Looks cool, but again, I'm not paying 4$ a week, especially for a book that seems somewhat contrived.

I might read this in trade if the reviews are good, to save money. No way can I afford a $4 weekly book. That's why I skipped the first issue.

To me, this seems like the ultimate test of how much comic buyers are willing to pay for something. Because if we start shelling out 4 bucks each for a weekly series, how long before regular, 32-page monthlies start selling for 5 bucks a pop?

So is this basically how all of these "Death of _______" story lines are going to go now? First you have the comics that hype up the death, then you have the comics that establish the "death", and then you have the follow-up that undoes everything from the "death" part? It seems pretty obvious that in finding a way to restore their own healing factors, they're going to revive Wolverine, and they aren't even trying to hide it. And at $4 a book, that's graphic novel prices for a single 20 page issue, multiplied by however many it takes to finish this resurrection.

This seems like the go-to "death" formula for Marvel and DC now, and I'm not sure I like it.

Agreed, especially for a story like this. Seems a lot of people are very disinterested in this, considering you can hop over to DC or Image and get 5 books for the price of 4 Marvel books, with the same or more content that, frankly, is more worthwhile.

I'm so done with how they've messed around with characters in this whole Death of Wolverine thing. Killing off Elixir, then removing Daken's healing factor. Like, seriously, Marvel - stop. Stop screwing over my favourite characters. It all feels a little... Forced? Meaningless?

Daken in pain makes me smile.

This.

Be interesting to finally learn whether he can actually grow a limb back like Wade can.

Wolverine lost a hand in AoA from Cyclops and it did not grow back (maybe the adamantium prevented it from doing so?) ...

Not sure whether their healing factor works that way (i.e. Logan, Daken and their ilk). Kind of a question left unanswered.

But hey, if Logan can grow his eyes back, and if his major organs (like his heart) can get totally annihilated then reconstructed from scratch, I don't see why an appendage is any different.

That's been my argument over the years in any event.

Ah ... I've been "skimming" recent content. Was not aware.

I realized he was no longer "blue" since his pappy died, but was not following Uncanny Avengers near the end of the arc so just figured I must have missed something there.

Feel like I've missed a chapter more than this though, that simply was not written yet perhaps (?) as I have been following enough to find it weird I missed this bit (about the Horseman change in particular and the loss of his healing factor).

Either way, sucks to be Daken.

@anjon: it's possible they might use this story to bring wolverine back but maybe not.

Look at Xavier, they teased him returning but nope,still dead.

They might tease it more but I like seeing these characters in the aftermath ioff Logan's death. Dakens reaction especially.

Now it could totally be sinister brings him back or maybe this was the wolverine from age of ultron but for now he's dirt.

So was Daken's change from a horseman back to normal explained?

How long can he survive with injuries like that? Seriously I'd give him 2 minutes tops before he bled out...

Why does Shogun have an exposed mouth in his otherwise full-head helmet? Maybe he just likes to smile at people?

I guess the answer is- Comics.

@cave_duck: no but we can guess based on Warren/Angels experience as Archangel, eventually Archangel became a seperated more aggressive personality that Warren could turn on and off at will ... Sometimes. So maybe Daken can also.

He doesn't have his healing but he still has his mutant stamina and reflexes and such so maybe that buys him more time, or at least time enough to be rescued

In other images I've seen of Shogun it looks more like a mask than a helmet wich makes sense because Shogun is a combination of Sharp a weapon x test subject and Ogun an old wolverine enemy who can transfer his conciousness into other people's body's and when he does he usually wears a kabuki mask hence the horns on Shoguns helmet/mask.

But yea comics works too

@mangakid1995:

Ok thanks for the reply, the Archangel analogy helps clear it up a lot.

Ogun normally wears a Hannya or Japanese Demon (Oni) mask, I remember him with those masks, and one time when he used a mask as a vessel to capture anyone wearing it. But I had to look them up to find the name, that's when I saw they are mostly open-mouthed. Which fits perfectly with what you said. (not trying to be pedantic, just sharing what I found after you helped me out.)

I still think Daken should bleed out, but's that's more because I don't like him than anything else...

I thought Soule was writing the series, didn't know that we were going to jump around with multiple writers. I guess I should have known...others were writing the tie in issues.

@pikachunicorn: Exactly.

Plus, most of them are completely out of character. Those five would NEVER work together. The fans know that damn well.

First of all, please telll me, does anyone else think it's completely ridiculous how they all inexplicably lose their healing factors? Hey, it's not the car keys to lose just like that!!!

Also, what exactly is Mystique doing? She keeps talking about her destiny, but actually, she has no idea what this destiny is! And I want to speak about Daken. First of all, he's completely out of character. Alright, yes, I understand he should be somewhat changed, but what the hell is this? Where is his dark humor, where are his manipulation tricks, and most importantly, where the hell are his fighting skills? And now what, he's out from the very first issue? You take away Daken and you're leaving us Deathstrike? Are we serious here?

Sorry Marvel, no more of this for me.

This book should not be called Wolverines, find a different name Marvel. Not that the Wolverine title has not had bad periods, but this is just awful. I was very intrigued by Mystique's story line at the end of her Logan Legacy issue, but to see that this is how they are having it play out is upsetting. I have not picked up the first issue and have no intention to pick up any of this series, the story line just seems poorly written, the characters seem out of sorts and unlike themselves and while the artwork is vastly improved from the first issue it still has shortcomings and does not seem to be the most fitting for the story or characters. What makes all of this really upsetting is that I am a die-hard Wolverine fan, it was the first title I ever really followed, and I have no interest in this series. I guess that is fitting, Wolverine is dead and now I can put his story line behind me.

All of the above, and then some. Daken is the most painful for me in terms of characterisation. Next in line would be X-23. Then the others following very close behind.
