Writer: Dan Way & Marjorie Liu

From Marvel: “For decades, Daken, the son of Wolverine, remained hidden in the shadows of the Marvel Universe, methodically plotting how he would one day dominate the world around him. And now, with his father’s soul hanging in the balance, that day has come. This is the beginning.”

In stores September 9, 2010.

Another disparaging view of Wolverine, this time from 50 years ago. One wishes the newly minted ‘Daken’ series would take a fresh path, focusing solely on Daken, and not return to such a dim expression of his father…

From Marvel: “With reality under furious attack by arcane power far beyond anything anyone on Earth has ever dealt with before, the Avengers have to start getting creative or forfeit all that we know. The rules of magic and mysticism in the Marvel Universe are about to change in a gigantic way and it’s all going to happen here! All this plus a brand new chapter in the oral history of the Avengers.”

In stores September 9, 2010.

You gotta love Stuart Immonen’s rendition of Wolverine. Too bad he only appears in a handful of panels…

  1. new avengers is my favorite avengers book right now, i like it.

    astonishing wolverine and spider-man was an entertaining read, i like how it isn’t even pretending to make sense right now..but it’s very entertaining.

    x-23 is great. i’m hoping that things will get even better..

    PSYLOCKE HAS A CELLULITE!

  2. I’ve sung this song before, but … pardon me while I repeat this rant:

    On “Daken: Dark Wolverine #1″ … Why does Way have to present Logan in the most disgusting, degraded, despicable manner over and over again? Has anyone ever figured out why he seems to hate Wolverine so much? Why was he given the privilege of writing him? It seems that his whole point is to build up his creation, Daken, by tearing down Logan. Does Way have some kind of “Daddy issues?” Did he have some sort of problems with his father, and can act them out now via Wolverine? Does anyone have a clue?????
