THE WORST IS BACK! Wolverine has never been one to back down from a fight — not even a combined assault from Lady Deathstrike, Sabretooth and Doctor Cornelius — but the Flower Cartel might have enlisted his worst and greatest foe: Logan himself.

    Benjamin Percy and Adam Kubert have nailed down Wolverine's personality. Together they can tell a tale of Wolverine that has been told many times before, yet they keep it fresh. I am excited to see where the story goes with the Pale Girl. I am also here for more naked Wolverine.

    But Why Tho?

    Wolverine #2 is a compelling look into the mind of one of the greatest X-Men and features a creative team that is firing on all cylinders. Percy and Kubert have a deep understanding of this character and use that to craft a story that plays into his greatest fears and give him a new enemy. This is slowly shaping up to be one of the best titles from the Dawn of X and I can't wait to see what future issues bring.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Percy crafts an effective and terrifying thriller in the pages of this new issue. The Pale Girl is an intriguing and dangerous threat and the plot showcases just how dangerous she is to both mutants and humans alike. I like the brewing buddy cop relationship between Bannister and Logan and their “old warrior” dynamic works in this story. I’m interested in how this story progresses given the shocking conclusion of this issue and I can’t wait to see what happens next. The Art: Adam Kubert delivers some impressive visuals. The art is dynamic and filled with energy. I like the contrast between the quieter, character focused moments and the action beats like the fight in Wolverine’s mind. Kubert does a great job of contrasting Logan and Bannister’s lives as well and I was impressed with the finale and how detailed it was.

    You Don't Read Comics

    Wolverine #2 continues Percy's great work on this book. He understands Wolverine very well and is building a very cool story with this one.

    Wolverine #2 drags Logan even further down into darkness as Percy balances the hardcore violence of the title with mystery and strong emotional interactions between characters and commentary on the current mutant status quo played out on a canvas of absolutely top quality art.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Percy and Kubert create a comic that's wildly dynamic and beautifully paced with haunting qualities that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Sure, this issue definitely feels familiar. However, the plot still feels substantial and ultimately drew me into the story.

    Comics: The Gathering

    This issue was such a fun read. There was a lot going on, and the story jumps around but it’s great to see Wolverine out investigating again. This story has some pretty dark moments which I also really enjoyed. I almost get “Enemy of the State” vibes from this story which is awesome. I’m really interested to see where this goes. We are definitely getting a noir series and I am all for it. There seems to be some tension building between Cyclops and Wolverine, and I’m wondering when we will start to see that bleed into the other series. Up until now they have been pretty buddy buddy but now, we are seeing a bit of the old Cyclops and Wolverine relationship come back. The only thing that was missing for me was the second story. In the last issue we got a second story with Omega Red but the continuation of that is nowhere to be found. I was kind of disappointed as I really enjoyed that story and was looking forward to more. Hopefully we get the rest soon as I love me some Omega Red! The art in this issue is what really shines. Every page blew me away with just how dynamic it was. It’s so great to have Adam Kubert back on the x-books. This is some of the best art we have had in a long time. Overall this is a great follow-up to that explosive first issue. This series is definitely set to be one of the better new x-series. Even if you’re not a huge Wolverine fan I still highly recommend picking this one up.

    An interesting enough story and character design in this one and it does have the potential to develop into a good series. Well worth picking up if you are a fan of Wolverine and like the retro aesthetic.

    Comic Book Revolution

    Benjamin Percy and Adam Kubert deliver a strong follow up to the debut issue with Wolverine #2. The mystery around the Flower Cartel's Pollen deepens and pushes Wolverine to go back to working solo to defeat this threat to the entire world. The way things are developed, especially with the mysterious lead villain, provide a lot of intrigue as to where Percy and Kubert will go with this story next. Read

    Eh, there wasn’t much to this issue, least of all much Wolverine action. It’s all generally fine. Wolverine is written fine. This Agent Bannister is a solid enough new supporting character. And the threat of some mysterious psionic stealing Krakoan drugs is a good enough story. There just isn’t any real spark to it, any real charm to it. There’s also nothing particularly Wolverine-specific to this story. Anybody from Krakoa could be going on a solo mission to stop the Pale Girl, and Percy makes sure to insert some weak narration as to why Wolverine would go solo and team up with Bannister instead of the literal hundreds of X-Men available to him. There’s nothing bad about this comic. Nothing that brings it down or holds it back. It’s just a generic, mildly interesting Wolverine comic that just sends him off on a random adventure instead of delving into anything really character or status quo specific.

About the Author: Benjamin Percy

Benjamin Percy is an American author of novels and short stories, essayist, comic book writer, and screenwriter.


Benjamin Percy has published four novels, The Dark Net, The Dead Lands, Red Moon, and The Wilding, as well as two books of short fiction: Refresh, Refresh and The Language of Elk. In 2016, he published his first book of non-fiction, a collection of essays on writing and genre fiction: Thrill Me.

Percy’s first work for DC Comics was writing Detective Comics #35 – 36 in 2014, which was part of the company’s New 52 branding. He eventually took over as writer on the company’s Green Arrow series, beginning with issue 41, and continuing until issue 52, when that series was cancelled in preparation for DC’s 2016 DC Rebirth initiative, which involved restarting its monthly titles with new #1 issues. Percy would continue as writer on Green Arrow with its new series in 2016, beginning with the one-shot Green Arrow: Rebirth, which sold over 90,000 copies when it was released in May 2016. It was the highest-selling issue with Green Arrow as the main character in recent comics history, and received a second-printing. In comparison, the final issues of the previous Green Arrow series sold between 21,000 and 22,000 copies, the last Green Arrow #1, from the New 52 launch, sold 55,512 copies, and Kevin Smith‘s Green Arrow #1 from 2001 sold 85,046 copies.

From November 2019 Percy is the main writer of X-Force series and from February 2020 of Wolverine series for Marvel Comics.
