Old Man Logan is Dead... Long Live Avengers of the Wastelands?

Old Man Logan is Dead… Long Live Avengers of the Wastelands?

Old Man Logan will presumably finally die in Dead Man Logan #12 next week, but that doesn’t mean writer Ed Brisson is ready to leave the world of the Wastelands just yet.

The End is Near [X-ual Healing 7-3-19]

The Hickboot is just weeks away, all of the current X-Men comics are ending, and if Matthew Rosenberg has his way, there won’t be any mutants left before it all goes down. Let’s get to the recaps of the four X-Men comics that came out last week… well, three, actually, but for whatever reason, DCBS […]

Wolverine Never Learns - Dead Man Logan #9 Preview

Wolverine Never Learns – Dead Man Logan #9 Preview

For a guy with a defective healing factor, with little time left to live, and starring in a book called Dead Man Logan, you’d think that Wolverine would operate with at least a little bit of caution. Nevertheless, Wolverine isnt’ a cautious kind of mutant, which is why he went and got his lungs ripped […]

Wolverine Knows What to Do With a Neo-Nazi in Dead Man Logan #5

Wolverine is dying. Again. Well, to be specific, the older version of Wolverine known as Old Man Logan from an apocalyptic alternate future timeline is dying because the regular Wolverine who died a few years ago has come back from the dead. And by dying, we mean very slowly, over the course of a 12-issue […]

Old Man Logan Has Finally Gone Senile in Next Week’s Dead Man Logan #3

Wolverine is over a century old, and the time-displaced future version of Wolverine, Old Man Logan, is even older than that. So it’s actually pretty impressive that, over all these years (aside from the occasional berserker rage), he’s managed to mostly keep control of his mental faculties. But things have taken a turn for the worse in […]

Hot Wolverine on Wolverine Action in April’s Dead Man Logan #6

X-Mas Comes Early as Cyclops Returns! [X-ual Healing 12-19-18]

No intro this week, folks. Marvel decided they needed to publish seven X-Men comics the week before Christmas and this thing is already pushing 3,000 words, so let’s get right to the recaps. Sworn to sell comics for Marvel executives who feared and hated the fact that Fox owned their movie rights, The Uncanny X-Men suffered great […]

Hello, Wolverine. Goodbye, Wolverine. [X-ual Healing 11-28-18]

Ah, what a magical time to be an X-Men fan. We’re used to shocking character deaths and even more shocking character resurrXions. That sort of thing happens on a regular basis around here. But it’s rare that we get the death and resurrection of a character at the same time. And yet, that’s what’s going […]

A Safe Space for Old Man Logan in Next Week’s Dead Man Logan #1

After a pretty good 50-issue run, Old Man Logan finally met his end in the final issue of his series, Old Man Logan #50. It had to happen, what with the original Wolverine (slowly but surely) coming back in Return of Wolverine. So the death of Old Man Logan was, sadly, inevitable. Or was it? […]

How Dare You, Ed Brisson? [X-ual Healing 10-31-18]

The penultimate issue of Extermination came out this week, which means bloodthirsty writer Ed Brisson is running out of time to devastate X-Men fans by killing off their favorite characters. We’ve already seen Brisson implicated in a plot to kill off Honey Badger with the other Uncanny X-Men writers. He succeeded in killing off Bloodstorm and […]

Old Man Logan Finale May Feature the Worst Thing Wolverine’s Ever Done

Wolverine is known for doing all kinds of despicable things. He’s a killer, even of his own kids. He sides with the damn Avengers over the X-Men in Avengers vs. X-Men. He spends decades pining after his friend Cyclops’ dead wife, and then has the nerve to lecture the guy on morality during the Schism. But […]

Wolverine Finally Takes Responsibility in Next Week’s Old Man Logan #49

Wolverine is the best he is at what he does, and what he does encompasses a wide range of actions: murdering his own children, sanctimoniously lecturing Cyclops about putting children in danger, betraying his species by siding with The Avengers in Avengers vs. X-Men, saying “bub,” stabbing people, having claws that get hot, and making […]

Cyclops Was Right and Cullen Bunn is a Hero Who Knows It [X-ual Healing 9-26-18]

There’s not many things in the comics industry from the past decade that bother us more than what Marvel has done to our beloved Cyclops. First, disrespected by that no-good Wolverine in the X-Men Schism, lectured for putting children in danger to save mutantkind despite Wolverine’s own predilection for literally murdering his own children, not […]
