Wolverine: The Best There Is #1

Wolverine: The Best There Is #1

-We start off with a naked Wolverine being forced to fight a mutate in a dog fighting ring thanks to a mind altering(and mutant power dampening)collar around his neck.
-Eventually the mutate accidentally damages Wolvie's collar, freeing him to kill the mutate, the people running the dog fighting ring and everybody watching the sorry spectacle.
-From there Wolvie(wearing one of those tuxedo top t-shirts)catches a ride with some woman who decides to take him to a party.
-Next up, some mystery villains dig a mutant with a healing factor out of quicksand to take to their base.
-Before the mystery villains take the mutant with the healing factor away, the leader of the group burns the mutant with his touch, and one of the mystery villains reveals that he's a cannibal... Um, sure... I guess.
-Wolvie heads to the party and meets up with the mystery villain from earlier(the one with the burning hands).
-Meeting this villain seems to free the inhibitions of the people he crosses paths with, which leads to the party becoming a riot, and Wolvie gutting himself with his claws.

What in the blue HELL was this all about?!? I literally didn't understand a single thing that happened here... First off, how the hell did Wolvie get SO drunk that he was captured by some hicks, and then forced into a dog fighting ring? What the hell was up with those weird villains? Why was Wolvie acting like a drunken hairdresser at the party, cutting hair with his claws? What a mess this was... On the bright side, it can only get better from here! I mean, I don't think it's humanly possible for things to get any worse...

Score: 0 out of 10.Yeah, this scene pretty much sums up my feelings on this comic...


  1. Uh...that scan...what the hell?? Haha, oh man does this look terrible. Ironically, I want to read this issue now just to see if I can make any sense of it! I'll just think of it like a fun puzzle/word game, like Sudoku or a word search or something.

  2. It was all just such a mess, Marc! From the opening scene with a nude Wolverine being tortured by some slack-jawed hillbillies, to that scene I posted. The weirdest thing was that that scene wasn't even the first time in that issue where Wolvie was cutting a woman's hair with his claws... You might just be better of taking that $4 and buying a Sudoku book or something instead! Your brain cells would probably thank you. :D

  3. Wolverine, The best there is... at being gay. Or at least thats how it looked in that scan anyway... not that there's anything wrong with that.

  4. Yeah, when I think Wolverine, I don't think "Hair-dresser in a tight tux t-shirt, talking about American Idol" But hey, maybe that's just me.
