Review By Joe Tell

After reading the title of this Marvel masterpiece, you may find yourself asking, as I did: How can this be? Wolverine is immortal and he simply cannot die. As a precursor to reading Death of Wolverine, I found out that an intelligent Microverse virus had infected Logan and is able to turn off his accelerated healing factor. Wolverine becomes mortal and is now able to be killed. Being a man of action, Wolverine seeks out the help of Tony Stark (Iron Man) and Reed Richards (Mister Fantastic) to restore his precious healing factor. After Reed suggests a lengthy rest period while he works on a cure, Logan declines. Instead, he decides to do what he does best. He tackles the horde of enemies and army of assassins that are after him, dealing with them on his own terms. After brutally beating Daredevil’s old foe, Nuke, within an inch of his life, Wolverine learns who has put the hit out on him. He decides to pay a visit to the Viper, who wants him brought to her alive. Logan cooks up a plan to use one of Iron Man’s helmets as a decoy to gain entry into the deadly Viper’s lair. After a violent battle with the Viper’s slave, Sabretooth, concludes with Wolverine suffering a mortal wound, fellow X-Man Kitty Pryde and longtime enemy Lady Deathstrike come to Wolverine’s rescue. A final showdown between Wolverine and his creator results in Logan sacrificing himself so that no one else suffers the same fate as he has. BONUS: Death of Wolverine also includes a revealing inside look at Wolverine from Len Wein, who helped create the Adamantium-laced mutant in 1974.
