    Wolverine has always been a fascinating character. He comes packed with a backstory that, for years, Marvel has only ever teased at. He’s violent, tortured, and lost. He’s the perfect anti-hero, and in this volume we’re shown why. We’re introduced to Wolverine in The Incredible Hulk #181 of all places. The Canadian-born warrior is sent to fight both the Hulk and Wendigo for the government. Even from the first issue we’re shown his raw fighting style and a prototype of his signature yellow and blu Wolverine has always been a fascinating character.

We’re introduced to Wolverine in The Incredible Hulk #181 of all places. The Canadian-born warrior is sent to fight both the Hulk and Wendigo for the government. Even from the first issue we’re shown his raw fighting style and a prototype of his signature yellow and blue costume. This is only a glimpse of the character we will come to know. He’s portrayed more as a hired gun than anything else, so don’t expect him to say, “Bub,” anywhere in this issue. Wolverine’s first appearance issue is another cleaned-up re-printed, and I have no complaints about it. The issue was even a plot-point in the 2000 movie, Coyote Ugly. The included story-arc is an odd, but excellent choice. We could have been given Weapon X, Wolverine: Origin, or self-titled Wolverine, but instead we have Get Mystique. The stories’ aim is to show Wolverine’s evolution as a character over the years. It starts off in 1921, and flashes back and forth between the past and present. Wolverine is hunting down Mystique after she betrays the X-Men for the umpteenth time. We’re given a view of their relationship, and of Logan’s real reason behind tracking down the blue shape-shifter. Ron Garney’s artwork fits perfectly with Get Mystique. His use of shading and lighting fit perfectly with this harrowing tale of violence. Wolverine is another excellent selection of stories, and a great jumping-off point for the Canadian hero.

    Udawanie, że ten komiks jest czymś więcej niż opowieść o gościu, który zabija kolejne osoby, by dorwać laskę potrafiącą zmieniać się w inne osoby, jest bez sensu.

    Su introducción un poco sonsa y rápida, pero los siguientes números son muy buenos. La parte de su historia en los extras me parece no está tan bien hecho.

    (This review may contain spoilers). So... if I'm completely honest, my original interest in Marvel, or at least the X-Men, probably stems from Hugh Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine. I liked the opportunity to see Logan's first appearance. I did, however, feel that he was unnecessarily cruel to the Hulk. While the first comic did a good job of showcasing Logan's abilities and how determined/stubborn he is, I also thought that the comic showed a slightly different aspect to the Hulk.

While the first comic did a good job of showcasing Logan's abilities and how determined/stubborn he is, I also thought that the comic showed a slightly different aspect to the Hulk. In many ways, he does strike me as a child who has an innocent way of looking at the world. I thought the second set of comics were particularly intriguing. While there wasn't much shown of the new world generally Wanda had created, I liked the fact that I could see the after-effects on Logan. Learning about his past with Mystique added an extra dimension to his character... though I was disappointed to see that he could technically be classed as a villain. While the crowd he ran with were criminals, my opinion of him went down several notches by the end of the flashback sequences. I liked the different styles of artwork in the two different comics. It was good to see how the atmosphere changed from a more lighthearted feel to something a whole lot darker. Even for a villain, I've felt that Mystique is a lot more than that. I felt the second set of comics showcased her grey nature especially well. I wouldn't root for her to win against the heroes, but I'm interested in learning more about her and perhaps seeing a redemption-style arc for her character, especially in light of her connection to Nightcrawler, one of my favourite X-Men. It was really good to see Logan interacting with Scott and I would have liked to see him with more of the others, heroes and villains. Even though these two sets of comics didn't show much in the way of Logan struggling against his nature, I could see hints of that. I liked being able to learn more about Logan's past and I did have a lot of sympathy for him the more I discovered. I'm sure I'd like to read more of his comics in the future.

    Starting off Wolvie's first foray into the comic world within the pages of the Incredible Hulk, obviously they battle as Wolverine takes the fight to both Hulk and the mysterious Wendigo who Hulk is in the midst of battling. The main story compiled here I have read before but I read again and still remembered a fair chunk of it is Get Mystique, once again Mystique/Raven has betrayed the X-Men after apparently being friendly for some time and Cyclops gives Logan permission to track her down and ki Starting off Wolvie's first foray into the comic world within the pages of the Incredible Hulk, obviously they battle as Wolverine takes the fight to both Hulk and the mysterious Wendigo who Hulk is in the midst of battling. The main story compiled here I have read before but I read again and still remembered a fair chunk of it is Get Mystique, once again Mystique/Raven has betrayed the X-Men after apparently being friendly for some time and Cyclops gives Logan permission to track her down and kill her (opens right there to the brutal no holds barred epic that ensues) but not only is this a story of Wolverine tracking down the villainess to exact revenge it also shows glimpses into a past where Logan and Raven first met, way before X-Men. Showing Logan and Raven as grifters with a gang of mutant crooks interwoven with Wolverine get very annoyed that Mystique uses every trick in the book to stay one step ahead of Wolverine until the final brutal showdown. Will Wolverine kill Mystique or will the blue skinned shape shifter gain the upper hand?
