From Marvel: “Demonically-possessed Wolverine vs. Colossus. What more do you need? How about Mystique and the Ghost Riders and Sabretooth and the devil wielding a really big sword, not to mention a shocking appearance by a figure from Logan’s past that no one’s expecting, least of all Logan himself. All of this as Wolverine’s epic descent into hell rolls on.”

Another strong issue, but I think the flaws are starting to show.

How can the Devil who has reigned in Hell for aeons be so vulnerable to someone with mere bone claws? What if someone with real power showed up? And how the hell can broken bone claws actually keep someone so big pinned against a wall?

That said, even though the final page was expected, it certainly packed a punch.

Anyone else care to comment?

  1. Oh — and was it just me or did the backup feature seem incredibly hokey and reminiscent of bad 80s comics?

  2. I take it that you weren’t a big fan…

    I thought it was ok…the only way I was able to explain the defeat of this demon, because the devil, he certainly isn’t, (and this is based on some theology classes and stuff) was that his power was weakened because of the lack of control. The “devil’s” powers derived from the control he has over you.

    If you allow the devil to reign supreme over you, then his power is magnified. If you accept the Lord Jesus Christ, then the power the devil wields is considerably less. So, even though Logan does not reference Jesus in any explicit way, his arrogance, defiance and “faith” caused not only an uproar, but weakened the devil in a way that allowed Wolverine the upper edge.

    Its the only way I can make sense of this…

  3. Meh, it’s like a well-executed bad idea.
