Time to announce a few changes to the Wolverine Files.
After much contemplation, I have decided to stop covering non-616 Wolverine appearances. In other words, I am dropping comics featuring Wolverine appearances from alternate realities, kids comics and all-ages comics, cover only appearances and all the other non-continuity Wolverine stories.
Because for me, and I only speak for myself, these appearances are sucking the fun out of comics. I need to try to strip back to Wolverine’s core appearances and get back to enjoying what matters to me.
Again, I speak only for myself.
Marvel has continuously stated that if fans don’t like these non-essential comics, then don’t buy’em.
Well, I’m not buying as of this week.
But fear not, completists! Our friendly neighborhood Comusiv will chronicle those appearances for me in a section we are dubbing ‘Comusiv’s Completist Corner‘. And to make that change to this weekly wrap up more evident, I am changing the name of “And the Rest’ to ‘Wolverine WrapUp‘.
So without further ado, on with the rest of Wolverine’s appearances from last week…

From Marvel: “Years ago, when the Fantastic Four were captured by a mysterious Skrull temptress, the ‘New FF’ stepped in to take their place…Spider-Man, Wolverine, the Hulk and Ghost Rider! Now, for the first time, see what happened immediately following their classic first adventure…as the two teams get shaken up and pitted against each other! Christos Gage & Mario Alberti bring you the ultimate super hero showdown!”

Wolverine appears as part of the New Fantastic Four.
Best line? “I got another team up. With a case of beer.”

Script: Marjorie Liu

From Marvel: “After the events of Second Coming and the stunning conclusion to X-Force, X-23 strikes out on her own in this all-new ongoing series, written by best-selling author MARJORIE LIU, spinning out of the events of Wolverine #1! X-23 has never had an easy relationship with the rest of the X-Men, but when she learns someone has taken down Wolverine, she must step up to fill his shoes.”
