‘Get Mystique! Conclusion’
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Ron Garney
I was genuinely looking forward to this issue.
Unfortunately, it is quite a disappointing finale to a promising start by Jason Aaron.
Once again, we are presented with Logan at his moral worst. How refreshing it would be to see Logan’s early life presented is such a way where he is neither an utter dirtbag nor a weak-kneed coward.
And the abject rejection on so many levels of ‘Wolverine Dies’ (the previous ‘Wolverine’ story) is truly shocking and appalling. I know I’ve gone off on this rant before, but this issue completely and utterly rejects its premise on every level.
That said, it’s a helluva a fight between Wolverine and Mystique even if the final two pages are a bit of a letdown.
From Marvel (preview): “‘Get Mystique’ comes to its bloody conclusion in the deserts of Iraq. The quest for Mystique is over, and now the no-holds-barred face-off between her and Logan begins. Only one will walk away, but both will pay a price.” On sale May 14, 2008.
