From Marvel: “EMPIRE: ACT I, Part 3 (of 3): Daken has shown in the past that he’s willing to do absolutely anything to accomplish his goals, but DYING? That seems a bit extreme. However, impossible as it may seem, there are things in life that you can only accomplish after death. Just ask Wolverine…”

Demon Wolverine beats the living snot out of Daken, and the plot thickens.

Anyone care to offer their two cents on what it all means?

  1. all i can say is this is the first time since “enemy of the state” that i’ve been this into any wolverine storyline. origins was okay, in my opinion, but in the process of just putting all the pieces together, i almost forgot why i liked the character so much in the first place. technically, between Wolverine, Daken, and X-23, this is the first Wolverine crossover. not an X-Men crossover. not a New Avengers crossover. finally, the focus is entirely on Logan. with events swirling around eachother and new little new developments that are actually suspenseful. i can’t wrap my head around what Thomas Logan’s up to (cause that’s totally him)… and i really want to know what happened to Logan’s brother as he popped up in Road to Hell. Wolverine is in hell. fighting satan himself. the first, and worst super villian in history. guh… this all needs to be one big hardcover. i’m assuming daken and logan should soon be having a reunion in hell. i just wish sabretooth could do something besides grunt. his intrigue to me was that he could match brute strength AND wits with Wolverine. him losing his mind in Evolution and the way he’s depicted now both disappoint me.

  2. Does Demon Wolverine also beat the living snot out of that duplicitous Mystique, too? Could he drag Daken to hell, change places with him, and leave him there…forever?

  3. Well i’m thinking, for those that have already read the issue, that the demon possessing Wolverine is Romulus, there was a seen in which Demon Wolverine and Daken are standing on the roof top and discussing the events previously. It is implied heavily that Mystique is dead, which is untrue, but does Daken not know this? It is also implied with the flashback that the demon is Romulus, and that they have somehow made a deal- but it seems that Daken doesn’t Trust / like this demon Wolverine and is using him for his own ends. I also assume that the “old man” and “old piece of skin” they are referring to is wolverine, but they could as easily be referring to the Devil. There are deffinetly strings being pulled in many directions, and my guess – Daken ends up on top.
    Also, how the HELL (excuse the term) did Daken survive that, did he use a substitute?
