Underrated: Havok and Wolverine: Meltdown

This is a column that focuses on something or some things from the comic book sphere of influence that may not get the credit and recognition it deserves. Whether that’s a list of comic book movies, ongoing comics, or a set of stories featuring a certain character. The columns may take the form of a bullet pointed list, or a slightly longer thinkpiece – there’s really no formula for this other than whether the things being covered are Underrated in some way. This week: Havok & Wolverine: Meltdown.


I don’t remember the first time I read this story, but it was likely in the UK reprint magazine Wolverine Unleashed in the mid to late 90’s. That was also the last time I read it, so when I saw the collected edition at my LCS for $15 I couldn’t pass it up – now because Wolverine is a little bit more marketable than Havok, the trade was just called Wolverine: Meltdown.

Originally published in the late 80’s, Meltdown was written by Walter and Louise Simonson, with illustrations by John J. Muth and Kent Williams. The story is set around the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of the mid 80’s, and finds Havok and Wolverine caught up in the midst of a plot to end the world in nuclear war from the shadows. The art has a wonderful painted look to it at times, but the artists aren’t afraid to experiment with multiple forms of media throughout the book. It’s a choice that is divisive to some – I’ll freely admit when I was younger the art did nothing for me, but I enjoyed the story a fair bit, whereas now I find myself absorbed in the art more than the writing which is a strange twist on how I usually find myself feeling when coming back to stories I haven’t read in 20 some years.

It’s easy to imagine the way this story would have felt when initially released as it presents another possibility behind the Chernobyl disaster as an intentional act to snare the X-Men. Looking back now, it’s a great premise to a story, and one that still holds up despite the very specific time setting. Admittedly, I’ve no idea or memory as to how in continuity/canon this story is within the X-Universe but the story is entertaining enough to allow you to just enjoy it as is, and seeing Wolverine and Havok team up together is still a relatively rare event even today – and while I’m probably in the minority here, I’d love to see more chances for these two mutants to come together on the page.

The main reason I wanted to talk about this book today is solely because it’s a story that I’d completely forgotten about. This isn’t one of the classic Wolverine or X-Men stories that people will talk about, and honestly nor should it be, but it’s still an enjoyable tale that still stands the test of time; admittedly it’s the artwork that will pull you in more than the story, because this is a book that just looks utterly fantastic. The art is at times risky and pushes the envelope of what comics would typically feature 30 years ago (and yet is far more common today). Do yourself a favour and check this story out if you can – it’s a four issue mini series that shouldn’t break the bank if you hunt the individual issues.


Unless the comics industry ceases any and all publication look for a future installment of Underrated to cover more comics that aren’t cracking the top 100.

Review: Wolverine #15

Wolverine #15

It’s been a while since I checked up on Wolverine’s solo adventures and for sure, I checked out long before Jonathan Hickman revamped the X-line in spectacular fashion. I’m glad I did because Wolverine #15 had a few nice surprises that kept me interested.

The pirate lord Sevyr Blackmore tells the tale of when he met Solem, a mutant with adamantium skin. Sevyr captured him when Solem was a kid but found he couldn’t kill him and couldn’t keep him held captive because he escaped everything. Instead, he took him under his wing and taught him the life of a pirate and in these kinds of tales, the student soon becomes the teacher and Solem turns out to be very, very good at what he’s learned. After all has been said, Wolverine and Sevyr go at it, with the winner to continue on the trail of Solem.

I got drawn into this issue of Wolverine pretty easy, despite my own shortcomings with not knowing much of who the cast was. I can confirm Sevyr’s tale works well for someone new to Wolverine. I like Ben Percy’s work, notably his work on Year Zero for AWA Studios. I think it would be hard to write villains for Wolverine. He heals and can cut anything in his path. Sevyr’s acidic blood mixed with having the foresight to install a magnetic floor to keep Logan in one spot seemed like a winning formula to me. And having Solem be a step or two ahead of Logan is a nice touch.

I was not expecting to be impressed with the art of Adam Kubert in 2021 or to have him throw out visuals that keep his work looking so fresh. I mean, I like his art and all but what I saw in the pages of Wolverine really stood out to me. I could gush all over this issue. While I’m sure Percy’s script is tight, Adam Kubert really knows how to make the story flow from panel to panel. I thought the colors by Frank Martin looked a tiny bit odd paired with Kubert’s art but I was sold after a few pages.

Could it be better? Sure. Everything can be better. I’m not much of a fan of Wolverine because he used to just pop up everywhere and mess up the place. Characters like Wolverine tend to feel a bit stale to me and I can honestly say I haven’t picked up his solo book in years. However, I was really enjoying what I read from Wolverine #15, so it’s definitely possible to put some good shine on something that for me was dull. Enough so that I want to see where this tale is going to go. Sevyr and Solem seem interesting enough as foils to Logan. This is definitely a book to read but it wouldn’t hurt to buy it since there was enough thought to make it feel like the story went somewhere and delivered on some good action.
