    Finally, Wolverine kills everybody. They say it's because the bad guys re-programmed his already @$#@ed-up melon, but I really think it's because of that ridiculous yellow outfit they make him wear. Think about it-- he's virtually impossible to kill because of his mutant healing factor, he has a metal-laced skeleton with claws that pop out of his hands & he's pretty much a badass in a fight anyway-- and the powers that be dress him up like a banana with blue highlights. I know I'd have issues.

    Oh, Mark Millar, what big brass balls you have. The things you do to regular Marvel characters is beyond belief, with stories so large they could be crossover events, but thankfully, are relegated to one title. You killed Wolverine!? Kudos. You gave him unbeatable opponents. Fabulous. You showed his fallibility, instead of him as an unstoppable one man army. Tremendous achievement. Instead of falling itno all the traps of writing Wolverine, which most writers do, because they feel he is the equivalent of Batman or Superman... anyhow, instead of that, you gave us a story that shook me like no book since Chris Claremont and Jim Lee's run on X-Men. Although I typically think Romita's art is amazing, and fantastic in its ability to conjure visions of golden age books and action, it was the only thing keeping this book from receiving 5 stars, because it seemed lazy, in both the pencils and the inks.

    I re-read this one today years after my first read-through, and I found that I liked it just as much as I had then. All in all, Millar showed some sort of restraint, in that he didn't resort to most of his usual cheap tricks. The action's all here, undiluted. The characters sometimes get snarky, yes, but it's all above-the-belt stuff. For a Millar book, there are surprisingly very few (maybe two) instances where a character calls another "stupid" or "moron". NOT surprisingly, Millar resorts to his tried-and-true (and unfortunately recurrent) "flying a jet at/through stuff". But, where usually the jet crashes into things, such as buildings, villains, or even petrol tankers, in this instance the jet crashes out of an underground hangar. Don't be disappointed, the jet then crashes into the woods shortly after.I agree with William Thomas (whose review also appears on this site) when he says that Romita's art was lazy. Body proportions were, as often as not, out of whack and that's what really kept this book from getting that coveted five-star rating. It must be said, however, that Paul Mounts' colour work was simply amazing.* Baron von Strucker was killed off in this book. Years later, in Secret Warriors, Vol. 1: Nick Fury, Agent Of Nothing, he's up & about and is very much alive. Question: Does continuity no longer apply? Or did I miss the issue in which he's resurrected? ** The same thing applies to the Gorgon, who gets killed in Wolverine: Enemy of the State, Vol. 2, but who's also very much not-dead in the Secret Warriors series.

    I could just copy/paste my review of Old-Man Logan: Nice idea but it clearly could have been better. I mean Wolverine goes berserk ? Nothing new. He tries to kill everybody ???? Really ? He barely made a scratch on the FF and killed one X-Man (and not a really important one) because getting beaten by one blow from Captain America.... Come on ?!Going to read the second part soon, hoping it gets better.

    Leído hace mucho en números sueltos y releído hace poquito en el tomo Deluxe español. No me pareció ni el mejor cómic de Wolverine que leí ni lo mejor de Millar y/o Romita Jr, pero a fin de cuentas es bastante entretenido, aunque no demasiado verosímil.Tengo en mi posesión los #1 y 3 de Panini, así que cuando consiga el #2 lo paso a "own a copy".

    Hubobun tiempo en el cual John Romita Jr. no era tan malo. No era bueno. Sorprendente o nada especial. Simplemente no era tan malo o mal hecho como ahora. Justo en ese entonces fue esta colaboración con Millar en una de las miniseries más interesantes de Wolverine en un buen tiempo y que sembraría cosas importantes que serían retomadas hasta su muerte. 4.6/5

    Está visto que cuando le dieron a Mark Millar luz verde en la colección de Wolverine se sacó las ganas: hizo de su protagonista un villano. No lo hace de cualquier manera o a la bartola, sino que arma cuidadosamente el plan que llevará a Logan a la desgracia -tanto la trampa en sí que lo hace caer como la alianza de los malos, que reúne a varios de los supergrupos villanosos de Marvel tales como HYDRA o La Mano- y luego, con Wolverine transformado en máquina de matar, ahí sí, se saca por completo las ganas de verlo enfrentar a cuanto héroe alguna vez hubiera deseado ver como el de las garras se las hacía pasar canutas. Esto -además de ver tremendas batallas contra SHIELD, los Cuatro Fantásticos, los X-Men y los Vengadores- propone un clima enfermizo donde realmente el enano psicópata mete miedo: cada aparición del tipo en plan descontrolado deja algún muerto y eso incluso vuelve a esta historieta algo lindero al slasher. Pocas veces antes el mutante canadiense ha transmitida tanta aura de respeto. Amén de eso, está dibujado como los DIOSES por JRJR, apoyado por el color de José Villarrubia, con imágenes que se vuelven inmediatamente icónicas al instante de ser vistas (a razón de una splash page por número, todas y cada una merecedoras de ser posters). Si te gustan las historietas de superhéroes, dificilmente vas a encontrar mejores que esta.

    Continuing the x-read of 2017...Well, it's well-written and a fairly fun comics read even though the plot is really cliché. The fastest resurrections of dead characters that I have ever seen, so there's that, I guess.

    Lobezno como máquina de matar en contra de todo el universo Marvel. Maravilloso. Aunque yo me quedo con Elektra.

    Enemy of the State (20-31). Before Millar, Wolverine had lost a lot of his savagery. He was thoroughly domesticated, and so no longer the character that had won his popularity in the X-Men. Millar changed that with a simple twist: he made Wolverine into a villain. Now other writers, past and present, have tried this route to his little success. But Millar made it believable and total with Hand brainwashing, and the result is one of the best Wolverine saga ever.Wolverine is a beast again, a force of nature. He goes toe-to-toe with Marvel's best, and even against foes like The Thing, the outcome is in question. To a large extent this story isn't deep. But it's action-adventure at its best. I'm often not a fan of the extended battle sequences, but Millar manages to maintain their tension by creating a story of things gone horribly wrong where anything could happen.And these issues also have Romita artwork to die for! [8/10]

    Mark Millar loves a body count. And who better to rack one up than the amnesiac badass himself, Wolverine?This book is wall to wall action and crazy fun. Millar pushes his violent concepts past the edges of what you expect, making the hyper-real seem even more grim and fantastic. This is a great example of a writer doing what he does best, and whilst he occasionally strays a bit too far into the body count territory (literally thousands of people are killed within these pages), it’s a bloody enjoyable ride.John Romita, Jr.’s art is also a bit of an acquired taste, particularly in the way that all his faces start to look the same after a while. But here we get to see dynamic panels, smooth transitions, and he captures the emotion of each panel really well. This trade, more than any other, made me a fan.Big, bloody, murderous, crazy, inspired, fun. What else would you expect with Millar at the helm?

    Millar has done it again! It's just amazing how he got these ideas of his. Who would have thought turning Wolverine into a villain could be so freakin' awesome? And that intro, is just epic! Very nice! Millar also brought some brains and Noir into Wolverine, with all those self talk and thinking. Reminds me so much of Batman, but I prefer him to be just wild and stupid, still it's a good take on Wolvy. The Illustration seems okay but Millar should have gotten a better artist to back up this cool story. Though the story is exciting enough to see Wolverine reigns havoc in the marvel universe, Millar did not quite provide a good climax and ending to the story arc. Let's see if it gets better on volume 2 of Enemy of the State, Agent of Shield.

    An absolute blast! Mark Millar's writing is at it's peak here and the artist John Romita Jr. never ceases to amaze me! And as an artist he seems to continue to grow, and like a professional tennis player he makes it look effortless in a way. Could it be said that Wolverine is the consummate anti-hero? I would say so, but then again I think the day my brother (was it?) explained to me what an anti-hero is he used Wolverine as an example... mild SPOILER ALERT!!! *** !!! ***So we all know Wolverine was brainwashed by the Canadian government back during the Weapon X project, well here he gets brainwashed again by some villains that are even worse than the Canadian government!:) Fun stuff.

    A wild ride with wolverine and Mark Millar.There are lots of reasons this book is very good: Mark Millar knows wolverine (old man logan so good) and writes one heck of a great story, We get a whole boat load of cameos from the marvel universe, and wolverine hurts a lot of people and it feels good. Its pretty rare that a book has so many awesome cameos I feel writers are often limited on who they can bring in lately. I wont spoil who shows up but its worth it. The basic story with out spoilers is that Wolverine isnt feeling so hot and decided to start killing his friends and he isnt holding back at all. No one knows how to stop him and its gets messy. The art isnt my favorite and I should probably knock off a star but the story holds it up.

    It is a necessity that Romita Jr. is working with a talented writer. I'm not the biggest fan of his art sometimes, but a well written story helps keep me from focusing too much on the strange proportions of these people.Millar is a great writer. He's particularly good at stories where the main characters are flawed. The great thing is that he works with different flaws: losers, killers, sanctimonious bastards. This is one of those comic stories that's hard to deal with in relationship to everything else. In this story Wolverine is brainwashed for months. I highly doubt he went missing from other books for that time. But that doesn't bother me. The story is still a fun read.

    I gave this 2 stars because a lot of things just didn't make sense to me that I would rather just not bring up. Well, besides the main thing is how the combined efforts of the bad guys were able to implant a personal teleporter (space-shifter) which would let me get away at the most convenient times. Whoopy! I guess that it was very difficult for me to displace my belief for this storyline and that really made it more difficult to read than anything else.

    I have always loved Romita's artwork and this is a pretty good example of his stuff. This book is a really good excuse to get Wolverine in major battles with Electra, Fantastic Four, Daredevil and the other X-men. It does this well and has a fun storyline to make you believe the excuse. Some really cool in the shadows full page artwork too.

    Pretty solid for Millar and mainstream characters. It's the plot of MPQ, Logan taken by the Hand and programmed to take out heroes for the Hand and Hydra. Elektra is hired by SHIELD and Fury to give expertise in the area. Great art by Romita Jr. Plot not too crazy, but big moment at the end involving Daredevil, Elektra and Logan...Onto,Vol. 2?

  • Mitchell

    The best Wolverine I've read in awhile. Still a killing machine, but in this one he is freshly brainwashed by Hydra and he breaks through every once in awhile. Logan in Japan, Logan with Kitty, Logan with Daredevil. Lots of good stuff in this one including Elektra. Sure the art is inconsistent with some characters, especially Kitty and Emma Frost. But wow. 4.5 of 5.

    Wolverine is captured by Hydra and is programmed to kill. I have a soft spot for John Romita Jnr's artwork. Even though fingers often look like fettuccine I think he does an excellent job of bringing the story to life. I also enjoy Mark Millar's work, even though it is brutal at times (scrap that, it's brutal ALL the time).

    I wasn't a huge fan of this volume after reading Ruka's run. It's a Wolverine story but there just wasn't enough wolverine in the panels for me to enjoy it, rather just finished it because I was half way thru. Maybe things will change after I read vol 2.

    Normalmente cuando empiezo un cómic de Lobezno se que me va a gustar y en esta ocasión no ha sido distinto. Esta historia es puro Millar desatado y encima usa un personaje como Lobezno que se presta a crear una historia sangrienta y cruda. Muy recomendable

  • Tristan Palmer

    One can tell this is the beginning of Millar's Old Man Logan, or at least the beginnings of the idea that former the what if of that world. Not to mention, displaying Wolverine's more violent talents that haven't been unleashed in a good, long while before this.

    Lobezno convertido en una máquina de matar y enfrenta do al universos Marvel (los 4F, los Vengadores, Daredevil, Ellektra y la Patrulla X). Un buen blockbuster, bien escrito y dibujado por un todavía correcto John Romita Jr.
