WOLVERINE… VERSUS THE X-MEN?!
Department H has sent their operative WEAPON X, A.K.A. WOLVERINE, on a mission to retrieve “dangerous individuals” – who just so happen to be mutants known as the X-MEN!
But what sinister forces are moving the mutants against each other, and how does it play into Wolverine’s eventual membership on the team?
At last – X-Men and Marvel legend Roy Thomas reveals a missing link between Wolverine‘s appearance in HULK #182 and joining the X-Men in GIANT-SIZE X-MEN!
ComicBook.comHave you ever wondered why Wolverine had a different mask in Giant-Size X-Men #1 in 1975 than he did when he first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #181 in 1974? Well, Roy Thomas, or at least someone at Marvel, sure did. They can now sleep at night knowing that they've spent two issues on a story that seems to exist only to answer this question that no one else had asked. Impressively, this story running in a series designed to cater to X-Men continuity wonks is made even more convoluted by tying into a Captain America plot from the 1970s and the Beast's short-lived tenure as the spotlight character of Amazing Adventures from the same era. Yet, this continuity control is part of Thomas' signature and remains as capable a writer as he ever was. The story is unlikely to disappoint his fans, and David Wachter draws it well, but for anyone else, its existence is likely to raise more questions than are worth pondering.
