Wolverine Week-in-Review: Avengers/Invaders, Manifest Destiny

I’m trying something new this week. Because I hate writing reviews of Wolverine cameos and the like, I decided to only write full-length reviews of major Wolverine appearances and dump the rest of his myriad appearances into a Week-in-Review post, hopefully every Friday. Let me know what you think in the comments section!

Aside from X-Men: Original Sin #1 (see review), Wolverine appeared in two other issues this week (October 8, 2008). And while he does NOT appear in Marvel Zombies 3 #1, it is definitely worth the read (see preview)…

Plot: Alex Ross & Jim Krueger
Script: Jim Krueger
Pencils: Steve Sadowski & Patrick Berkenkotter

A very odd issue with Spider-Man obviously on drugs, Wolverine not far behind (making an X mask with his claws!) and EVERYONE forgetting that the original Human Torch was an android.

This Astonishing X-Men tale nicely delves into the guilt that Emma Frost carries around with her. Wolverine has a strong appearance, capturing the essence of forgiveness quite effectively. Unfortunately, X-Men: Original Sin #1 completely destroys this story, so be warned…
