Wolverine: Origins #27
“Son of X, Conclusion”
Writer: Daniel Way
Artist: Stephen Segovia
Enough with the flashbacks!
Did Marvel decree that every single freakin’ comic I read be accompanied by at least 14 pages of flashback?
To make matters worse, we are forced to endure 13 of those pages as Daken’s ‘origin,’ one of the least compelling characters created in recent memory.
While I’m ranting, I am equally tired of villains who are the epitome of the undefeatable opponent one issue, and easily dispatched within a page the next.
And the final-page surprise only promises more melodrama for the next story arc.
From Marvel (preview): “The origin of Daken, the son of Wolverine! Following in his father’s footsteps, Daken is inducted into a secret society of killers and trained by the master himself—the mysterious being known as Romulus. But now that Daken has been freed from his master’s grasp by his father, Wolverine, has his training ended…or has it just begun?” On sale July 30, 2008.
