The X Deaths of Wolverine #5 finale continues from its companion mini series X Lives of Wolverine #5 finale (full spoilers here).
The Wolverines – Daken, X-23 (aka Wolverine) and Scout (fka as Honey Badger) – are chasing the Omega Wolverine (Logan from the future infected by the Phalanx).
The battle culminates with the present’s Wolverine confronting his future self, but…
…that does not avert a fight.
They battle as the Wolverines gawk…
…until Sage enters the fray with the Cerebro Sword…
…which as the ability to disrupt and purge the Phalanx from the Omega Wolverine.
It does and Krakoa absorbs Wolverine’s future self’s adamantium skeleton with the present day Wolverine ready from whisky instead of beer this time.
The book ends with…
Moira MacTaggert rising from the grave with a previously implausible eleventh life?
Moira X again or Moira XI? More on Moira’s first 10 lives here.
Up next is the Dawn of the Destiny of X era and associated checklist of its kick off titles.
A fast-paced issue with the much expected battle of the present day and future Wolverines. I really like the “team” of Wolverines. Marvel may have something there. Curious what’s next for the “dead” Omega Wolverine and Moira X. The twinned mini-series were billed as “changing the X-Men forever”, but I can’t tell how unless the tinkering the past in X Lives of Wolverine impact the present and future. Solid art rendering the X Deaths of Wolverine finale. It was an overall satisfying and entertaining read. 8 out of 10.
