I know everyone keeps telling me I’m crazy when I say that ‘Wolverine: Origins’ is really more about Daken than it is about Wolverine, but it certainly feels that way right now.

And as I’ve said before… I really don’t really Daken.

Just look at the title of this website. It’s Wolverine Files, not Daken Files.

And the artwork is genuinely dreadful, especially in comparison to the refreshing work from Mike Deodato…

From Marvel (preview): “Wolverine and Daken go toe-to-toe with one of the most sadistic villains in the Marvel Universe: CYBER! Looking to settle scores on many fronts, Cyber has returned to wreak havoc! How will Wolverine defeat the one man he’s ever feared…and how can he trust his son not to betray him?” On sale January 21, 2009.

A direct tie-in to ‘Wolverine: Origins’ with a few pleasant surprises and twists.

And you get Mike Deodato…

I am intrigued to see where Brian Michael Henry Bendis is going to take this.

It’s certainly a lot better than the travesty that was ‘Secret Invasion’…

From Marvel (preview): “The start of an explosive new era in the Avengers mythos! Who are the Dark Avengers? Who is the Iron Patriot? The answers will shock you” On sale January 21, 2009.

  1. Well about Origins… I think it’s focusing on Dark Reign more then Daken at the moment. Even Nick Fury is getting involved.

    They said it will tie into the Dark Avengers. And in that interview it said Daken will disappear for awhile, while he goes on missions with that team. So I’m still sticking with my opinion about that. And I still want to see Logan wield the Muramasa blade again. That is a fucking awesome weapon.

    I still like the ending though, I thought it was a satisfying conclusion to some previous story arcs.

  2. DiG, I have a question, Weapon X – First Class 3 was supposed to be on sale yesterday, was it the case or there was a delay?

  3. On sale… I’ll have a writeup tomorrow.

  4. I’ll admit I was surprised to see Wolverine in the Dark Avenger’s lineup (Under Iron Pariot). Didn’t think he’d be there, after everything that’s happened.

  5. That is Daken silly!

    It’s his son calling himself Wolverine. :)

  6. That’s right, for someone who doesn’t like his father, I was surprised to see Daken codenamed the same as his father and wearing the same as his father…

  7. Well to be fair. Venom hates Spider-Man, and he is calling himself the “Amazing Spider-Man”.

    ;)
