Wolverine: Origin 2 #1 Review

27 December 2013 4:26 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The first Wolverine: Origin book was weird. Set in the 19th century, Wolverine was given the name James Howlett and made to be a sickly young lad whose family were wealthy landowners. Through a series of bizarre events, James and his childhood best friend Rose run off together and struggle to survive in Canadian mining towns.

Through another sequence of bonkers events, James – or Logan as he’s now known – is left alone, goes a bit mad, and runs off into the Canadian forests to run with the wolves. The end! Weird maybe isn’t the best word to describe Origin – awful is better, or plain stupid. It was an origin story that didn’t make Wolverine more interesting as a character, nor did it tell a very interesting or original story, and in fact took away his mystique – there’s a reason why we never know Joker’s origins, »
