Origin: The Origin of Wolverineby Paul Jenkins
Synopses & Reviews
To many, Wolverine is Marvel's finest hero — the best there is at what he does. Genetics, environment, divine intervention: what incredible forces created this man — the world's greatest killing machine with a heart as big as the great outdoors?
For years we followed Wolverine in the desperate search for his past, from the wilds of the Canadian wilderness to the teeming cities of Japan and beyond. But despite his perseverance and longing for the truth, Wolverine remained an enigma to himself and all those around him.
Welcome to the greatest story never told!
This romantic period piece defied industry expectations. At long last, all is revealed about the incredible forces that molded Wolverine, the world's most perfect killing machine with a heart as big as the great outdoors.
For decades, Wolverine's shadowy past has been shrouded in mystery. But before he was the savage mainstay of the X-Men, before he was a tormented secret agent codenamed Weapon X, even before he was a barroom brawler in the wilds of Canada...he was a child. And now, in this landmark event, Marvel reveals all! The birth and childhood of young James Howlett...the secrets and intrigue of his family history...the first struggle with his subconscious savagery that culminated in tragedy...and how James' flight from everything he once knew led to the forging of the man known as Logan! COLLECTING: Origin 1-6
