After discovering a strange entity that was able to take over human minds, Wolverine did all that he could to save those who had no more will of their own. Nonetheless, the creature(s) responsible for the horrid acts thought little of individual lives, as they were clearly looking to take over many more people and perhaps even conquer the entire planet. While Logan is on their trail, it seems the monsters are gaining ground, whilst slipping through the net. With S.H.I.E.L.D. being a possible target, things are about to get heated.

In the previous bundle the mind controlling creatures only took over one or two people at the time, but it seems things have gotten more serious, as they are taking over more and more people and while this would already be a cause for panic, they have also started taking over military personnel. Wolverine and Nick Fury try their best in saving as many lives as possible, but for some reason the creatures seem to be one step ahead of them at all times, thus Logan decides it might be better not to report everything they do. When a military vessel is headed to a packed baseball station time is certainly of the essence.

The second story arc in this bundle is also about the mind controlling entity, but it situates itself on one of S.H.I.E.L.D.S. carriers, the Hercules, which is currently under control of the creatures, making Wolverine fend for his own. They are now able to take over people simply by spreading through the air, thus everyone is a possible suspect.

The flow in this issue is neither fast nor slow, making things a lot more clear compared to the first bundle. You’ll finally be treated to sufficient information about what is truly going on, and what Wolverine’s role is in all of this. It’s also fun to dive inside the psyche of Wolverine and how he has to cope with the situation trying to keep everyone affected alive. Thanks to this, this issue by Paul Cornell proves to be a lot more interesting than the first bundle.

Wolverine has his own distinct style, and this is something both artists who worked on this bundle tried to respect. Nonetheless, there are some clear differences between the first part of this omnibus and the two final chapters, as in the beginning everything feels very sleek and smooth, while in chapter two and three things get a lot more rugged and harsh, which still fits well within the boundaries of Logan’s personality. The colors add to the locations Logan currently resides in, setting the proper mood.


Wolverine #002 steps up its game compared to the first bundle, making this issue a lot less complex and more amusing to read. It’s fun to not only see Wolverine’s rage and combat skills, but also what is currently going on in his head. Overall a very enjoyable second omnibus.
