Wolverine Origins #7 (2006)

$4.50
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT

Written by Daniel Way, penciled by Steve Dillon, cover by Joe Quesada
"Savior," part 2 of 5. During the Cold War, Logan -- along with Team X -- performed several secret missions inside Russia, one of which was the sabotage of Russia's fledgling "Super Soldier" program and the destruction of the program's result--in particular, the psychotic cyborg known as Omega Red. Logan's memory of this mission has only recently returned to him...but Omega Red has thought of nothing else ever since. It's time for some payback.
BONUS REVIEW by DAL BUSH
Why is the Wolverine so popular? I don't get it. You people would seriously read him reading the phone book, which would be about as entertaining as this title. Between the stiff art from Steve Dillon, the competent-but-dry script from Daniel Way and enough 90's nostalgia to fill a thousand Spike Lee jean commercials, this thing shouldn't sell at all. But it does! Thanks to the Wolverine and God knows what else. If anyone can explain in 100 words or less what makes this book worth buying, please send it to wdalbush@grahamcrackers.com and I'll run it next week. Until then... 4 Grahams
BONUS REVIEW by "Victor Von Doom"
In Wolverine: Origins, Daniel Way posits that because of Wolverine's past misdeeds, he is completely beyond redemption. From his hand in creating Nuke to his complete genocide of a small town, Wolverine is accountable for crimes so awful and disturbing even he believes he is incapable of being redeemed. He can only try to make sure what happened to him doesn't happen to his son. Wolverine: Origins reveals just as much about Wolverine's psyche as it does his origins. Steve Dillon has an uncanny ability to portray the emotional arc of the story as well as the action.
BONUS REVIEW by Joe Wagner
Um. . .Dal. . .it's the pretty covers, which is even more nostaligic of the 90's than the content that comes after the pretty covers. So, um, do I get a No-Prize for being less than 100 words?
BONUS REVIEW by Sean McEvilly
I buy Wolverine: Origins because I happen to like Steve Dillon's artwork. Sure, the whole "you have a son" idea is a bit lame, but they have Logan actually fighting villains that are tied to him in some way. I would rather see him go toe to toe with Omega Red than chasing after Nitro in his other book. Nitro!?!? NITRO!?!?! It's also a book that reminds us that Wolverine wasn't always the hero that Marvel pushes him as. Plus his fight with Captain America was pretty sweet in issue 5.
