  1. Wolverine Origins #46 – I had fears long ago as to “if / how” Way was going to “reinterpret” Mariko and Logan’s story. Well, it looks like he’s had a plan all along, and saved it for the home stretch of his series.

    On the forums last June, I had speculated that the way he’s twisted everything else in Logan’s past, that Way’d somehow ruin Mariko for him, too. I hope I’m wrong….

    *************************

    “Way has already “reinterpreted” some events and people in Logan’s past — showing erstwhile allies like Seraph to be in league with Romulus, aiding in Logan’s manipulation. Suppose Way “reinterprets” Mariko’s status in Logan’s past, showing her to be less than noble, too. If this were to develop and Mariko’s role is subverted, would a simultaneous storyline by Way then flesh out and even elevate Itsu’s role? In other words, might Way cheapen Mariko to build up his own creation, Itsu?

  2. If he does . . . .

    The whole Wolverine/Mariko thing is classic–one of my favorite stories ever. If he touches it . . . .

    No. Just no.

  3. Well, he’s touching it! He’s touching it! And everything Way has touched about Logan’s past in this series has turned to ****. Way’s turned him into a war criminal, and a whining, soulless punk, easily beaten by lower tier villains…Gaaaaaaa!!!!

  4. Good news: I just rushed to the comic book store, and it looks like he doesn’t make any changes. Just a guilty Wolverine confessing to Kurt. Nothing new to report, just a retelling of the whole thing.

    We’re good.

    For now, at least.
