X Lives of Wolverine and X Deaths of Wolverine are a Journey into Wolverine’s Past and Mutantkind’s Future

Past and future will collide in Benjamin Percy’s X Lives of Wolverine and X Deaths of Wolverine, two interlocking new X-Men series debuting this January. In the same way Jonathan Hickman’s House of X and Powers of X transformed the mutant mythos in 2019, these twin series will usher in The Second Krakoan Age of X-Men, releasing on an alternate weekly schedule, starting with X Lives of Wolverine #1 on January 5. Having been the character’s chief storyteller for the past few years across media including scripted Marvel podcasts, X-FORCE, and WOLVERINE’s current ongoing series, Percy is ready to tell the next Wolverine milestone alongside Joshua Cassara and Federico Vicentini. With covers by legendary Wolverine artist Adam Kubert, X Lives of Wolverine and X Deaths of Wolverine will kickstart the new year with bold revelations and exciting developments not just for Logan but for all of mutantkind.

Logan. James Howlett. Weapon X. The mutant best known as Wolverine has lived many lives under many identities and in many places, but never before has the fate of the future been so entwined with the past! Fan-favorite eras of Wolverine’s saga are explored anew, along with never-before-seen episodes as Logan must travel to various points in time to prevent the death of a key figure in mutant history. But these lives are only one side of the story… If Wolverine’s future lies in the past, what does that mean for the present?

No one is safe. The future is at stake. The only certainty in life is DEATH and WOLVERINE.

Be here for the start of this epic tale across all of Wolverine’s history and future yet to come when X Lives of Wolverine and X Deaths of Wolverine begin in January!

The Sinister War turns Spidey’s life upside-down, but the fact that KING’S RANSOM and CHAMELEON CONSPIRACY already did that, might give you an idea of how hard this is going to be for Peter Parker.

Review: Heroes Reborn #3

Heroes Reborn #3

Continuing the rather interesting split issue format of the series, Heroes Reborn #3 is the strongest issue of the main event so far. The Marvel Universe has changed. The Avengers were never formed at the Squadron Supreme has stepped into their place. The only one who remembers the world that was is Blade who’s on a mission to find out what’s going on and fix everything. Heroes Reborn #3 begins to eliminate some of the possibilities for what’s going on while also putting the focus on Blur, the speedster member of the Squadron Supreme.

Race Through the Dread Dimension” dives into Blur. And as a standalone story, it does a hell of a job in doing everything it needs to do. Impressively, we get hints as to an origin. We also get a solid idea as to who Blur is as a person and character. The answer is, an absolute ass. Writer Jason Aaron continues to use Marvel’s creations as an examination of classic DC characters, in this case, the Flash with some others thrown in. Stanley Stewart is the classic DC speedster mixed with the arrogance of Johnny Storm. He’s a character you want to punch.

The story does an excellent job of running through who Blur is as he watches television, plays on his phone, laments he’s “too fast” to do certain things, and brags about his dating. This is an arrogant person granted massive abilities and can’t sit still. Like his introduction, the story focuses on Silver Witch as she steals his soul and he attempts to get it back while racing through the Dark Dimension.

The story works far better than previous chapters as it focuses on Blur. The story feels less like a game of “see what’s different” as opposed to focusing on Blur. We get a good sense of who he is with a minimal amount of “guest stars”. There also seems to be a real focus on giving us a twisted take on The Flash. Gorilla City is replaced by Grizzly City as an example. On its own, it’s a very enjoyable story and great introduction to the character.

Federico Vicentini provides the art which does an excellent job of capturing the motion, and lack of it. With Matt Milla on art, the look of the comic is great as it attempts to mimic what really works with The Flash. It’s solid visuals to go along with a strong narrative.

The Silent Inferno“, also written by Aaron, is the real focus on the main story. Blade is organizing his team to try to fix the world. He and Captain America recruit a new member that’s unexpected. The move eliminates one of the possible causes for what’s going on and also answers some questions in how they’ll deal with the Squadron Supreme’s heavy hitters. With art by Ed McGuinness, ink by Mark Morales, and color by Matthew Wilson, the story is an interesting chapter but feels too short. What stands out is the chapter’s ability at intrigue. I was sucked in as I wanted to see where it was going, who was the focus, and what was being said. It’s a solid entry in the greater story. But, overall, it emphasizes the issues with the event, it feels like it’s being dragged out and not focused enough on the main story.

Heroes Reborn #3 is the best release so far in the event. But, like the previous issue, at times it feels like a tie-in than the main story. But, what’s presented is really good, so there’s good and bad with the release. Overall, the event is a bit frustrating in how it’s presented and the pacing but we are at least getting some solid moments within all of the distraction.
