Wolverine: Origins #24
“The Deep End, Part 4”
Writer: Daniel Way
Artist: Steve Dillon
I should’ve known.
The last few issues have been too good to last.
Daniel Way just couldn’t help himself, straying into pop psychology and the tedious and unnecessary psychoanalysis of Deadpool (and to a lesser degree Wolverine). What an original idea — an abusive alcoholic father who tells his son to shut up. Surely this trite cliche explains the insanity that is Deadpool.
And the reappearance of Daken seems to portend the continued return of the old days of ‘Wolverine: Origins’ — cheap melodrama and unrelenting cynicism.
From Marvel (Preview): “Wolverine and Deadpool have fought to a standstill and are now—literally—dead on their feet. Whose healing factor will reign supreme? And what horrible fate awaits the loser? The most over-the-top grudge match in recent memory continues!” On sale April 16, 2008.
