    Default Thoughts on Wolverine by Jason Aaron?

    How's the run? The omnibus is somewhat OOP now but planning of picking this up. Cheers!

    I'm not a fan of Wolverine, but me and my brother read Aaron's run and we enjoyed the hell out of it! Again this is coming from 2 guys who don't care much for Wolverine. So you might enjoy it. Hell now I might pick it up in trade.

    There are reasons that make me think the character should be one of my favorites, but I don't care about him either.

    I think I'll try this run now that I read your thoughts.

    Aaron's run truly showed his dark feral nature from GoesToHell/VsXMen story arc and his Rot story arc was also good imo , his thirst for revenge was well demonstrated during Wolverine's revenge for Red Right Hand ....If fans like this things then i would recommend Wolverine Origins as well even though many Wolverine fans do not recommend this comic series though tbh ......

    I'm glad to hear it. If you want to. When you read some of it. Come back and let us know what you think.

    Aaron's Wolverine is a mixed bag, for one side he has to work with the awfull status quo for the character that Bendis, Alonso, Loeb and Way established through a bunch of horrible decisions, he was able to make something entertaining and interesting with it for a while, his best are the Weapon X ongoing, the Astonishing Spider-Man/Wolverine mini (with Kubert artwork) and the back up story "A mile by my mocassins" from Wolverine vol 3 73-74, his main run with Wolverine is really uneven, Wolverine Goest To Hell is crazy fun and the idea behind the mega arc that ends in the "Revenge" is pretty solid but the execution doesn't quite hit IMO. The rest after is mostly forgettable and it ends in a rush, another thing that bothers me a bit is that Aaron can go a tad to far sometimes with the wish fulfillment aspect of the character, but that's more of a personal thing.

    It's good, as long as Wolverine isn't in Hell....that first arc was awful. It gets dramatically better after that.

    His Wolverine and the X-Men however.....I can't get with that. I feel like I was reading a sit-com or something.

    I likedAaronin the beginning. Get mystique and Manifest desntiny was awesome. And the Weapon ax volume first 10 issues were good. I didnt like Tomarrow dies today arc. The Red Right Hand saga wolverine 1-16 wasnt great. I did like goodbye china town a nd back in japan.

    It fell with wolverine and the X-Men
    Wolverine,Rogue,Gambit,Jubilee Jean Grey top 5 x-men Favorites

    Liked Get Mystique. That's the only thing I've read from the run.

    I loved Wolverine and the X-Men...

    I just feel like Aaron gets Logan. He likes writing and unlike some writers, he isn't afraid to writ him as a bad person from time to time.

    I found his run to be generally enjoyable. From "Weapon X" to "And the X-Men" it's all over the place tonally. If you can appreciate that it's all good, if you can't you'll find it hit and miss.

    Thanks for the thorough input! Did you like Aaron's Punisher run?
