omertalvendetta's Fear Itself: Wolverine #2 - Part 2 review

Grrrrr.... Rrrraaaah!

Here is the best thing to come out of this issue.  The cover, sadly, is the only thing that works here. 
The Good: 
The art is actually ok, and the fights withing are very typical Wolverine.  That really is about it.   
The Bad: 
Where do I start?  Wolverine's real power is ubiquity.  During the events of Fear Itself (which seem to occur over a couple of days- perhaps a week), he has managed to do stuff with his own team X-Force, the New Avengers in hunt of Ben Grimm, the Avenger interview (albeit occurring afterwards), hunting for Juggernaut in San Francisco in Uncanny X-Men and still have his own issues with this Hellcarrier.  He is amazing!! 
  Secondly, his girlfriend is an extremely forced and annoying character that frankly not one person I know likes.   And yet her profession gives her access to extremely confidential information simply because she's a "friend" of Wolverine.  You can't just ask the British Avengers for information and expect them to just give it to you because you are a) in the Avengers mansion and b) a friend of Wolverine... but that's exactly what happens here.  Then her stupid site... her character is just a waste of several panels.  Atrocious character.   
I would honestly not even bother buying the third issue that concludes this mini series if it wasn't for the fact that I'm a completist.  I can safely say that if I was to ever sell any of my comics, this mini series would be at the top of the stack.  I bought it because the main Wolverine series has been splendid and I love his characterizations in Uncanny X-Force, but good lord, is this terrible.

    As you all know, I am not a huge fan of these extraneous crossover tie-ins and I feel like a lot of them are just pointless attempts to get more money out of us by slapping a banner on a comic that you wouldn’t normally buy in hopes that us completionists will want the whole storyline.   What might surprise everyone is that I, with all my mutant obsession and infatuation, am not at all into Wolverine (much like I am not into Deadpool).    I see no reason that he needs to be on four teams, have t...
