    Default Logan: The Best there is Appreciation Thread 2022

    The 2022 home to show some love for the best there is at what he does, even if it's not very nice!


    I'm borrowing the rest below from Hush from the 2020 appreciation thread because there is some great info on what to read. Thank you Hush!


    Let's start with a recommended reading list of the best stories with the Ol' Canucklehead:




    Solo adventures

    - Marvel Comics Present Vol.1 #72-84 "Weapon X" by Barry Windsor Smith. The story of how Logan got his famous adamantium skeleton and claws. The Best Wolverine story ever told in my opinion.

    - Wolverine Vol.1 #1-4 + Uncanny X-Men Vol.1 #172-173 by Chris Claremont, Frank Miller & Paul Smith. The first Wolverine mini and its followup, the tragic story of Wolverine and Mariko and the start of Wolverine's Japanese adventures.

    - Marvel Comics Presents Vol.1 #1-10 + Wolverine Vol.2 #1-30 by Chris Claremont, Peter David, Archie Goodwin, Jo Duffy, John Buscema, John Byrne, Klaus Janson & Bill Sienkiewicz. The start of the Wolverine ongoing with several stories that take place in the lawless island of Madripoor, really enjoyable. Wolverine Vol.2 #10 is a Must-Read!

    - Wolverine: The Jungle Adventure by Walter Simonson & Mike Mignola. Wolverine goes to the Savage Land to stop a classic foe of the X-Men from destroying it.

    - Wolverine Vol.2 #31-57 by Larry Hama & Marc Silvestri. The most popular run on the character. Issues #34 & #57 are a Must-Read!

    - Wolverine Vol.2 #75-90 + X-Men Vol.2 #25 + Cable Vol 1 #16 by Larry Hama, Adam Kubert, Fabian Nicieza, Andy Kubert, Steve Skroce and many more great artists. Wolverine loses his healing factor, his adamantium skeleton and claws, he then goes on a world tour and faces his greatest foes. Really good stuff!

    - Wolverine Vol 2 #-1 by Larry Hama & Cary Nord. A great issue set just after Logan was found by James "Mac" Hudson and his wife Heather after his escape from the Weapon X compound.

    - Wolverine Vol.2 #119-122 "Not Dead Yet" by Warren Ellis & Leinil Francis Yu. Wolverine faces the greatest hitman that ever lived.

    - Wolverine Vol.2 #150-153 "Blood Debt" by Steve Skroce. Logan, Amiko & Yukio Japanese adventures.

    - Wolverine Vol.2 #159-176 & #181-185 by Frank Tieri, Sean Chen & Dan Fraga. One of the best modern run on the character and a good starting point for new readers. "The Logan Files" (issues #173-176) is one of the best Wolverine story ever written!

    - Wolverine Vol.3 #1-19 by Greg Rucka, Darick Robertson & Leandro Fernandez. A much more grounded run but it's still really good. Issue #6 is a Must-Read if you're a fan of the Wolverine & Nightcrawler's friendship!

    - Wolverine Vol.3 #20-32 by Mark Millar, John Romita Jr & Kaare Andrew. The "Enemy of the State" blockbuster storyline that put Wolverine against the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe, one of the most popular Wolverine story ever!
    The last issue is the famous "Prisoner Number Zero" story, a flashback set during WWII in the Sobibor camp, it's different in tone compared to the previous issues but it's still amazing and a really powerful story.

    - Wolverine Vol.3 #56, #62-65, #73-74 (backup stories), Wolverine: Manifest Destiny #1-4, Wolverine: Weapon X Vol.1 #1-16, Wolverine Vol.4 #1-20 & Wolverine Vol.2 #300-304 by Jason Aaron and many great artists. A great modern run by Jason Aaron.

    Almost all the Wolverine-centric issues from Chris Claremont's first X-Men run and they're all amazing.

    - New X-Men Vol.1 #114-154 + Annual #2001 by Grant Morrison and many great artists. The wildly innovative Grant Morrison X-Men run! Issue #148 is a Must-Read!

    - Uncanny X-Force Vol.1 #1-35 + #5.1 + #19.1 by Rick Remender, Jerome Opeña, Phil Noto and many great artists. The Rick Remender's extraordinary, critically acclaimed Uncanny X-Force run. "The Apocalypse Solution" & "The Dark Angel Saga" (issues #1-18) are among the greatest X-Men stories ever told!

    - Wolverine and the X-Men Vol.1 #1-42 + Annual #1 by Jason Aaron and many great artists. Welcome to the Jean Grey's School for Gifted Youngsters. Hope you survive the experience! Issues #1-8, #17 & #39-40 are the best ones.

    I was really tempted to leave the images the same as I love that Inhuyk Lee cover from last years thread. 2022 is going to start big for Logan and I personally am crazy excited to dive into X Lives/X Deaths of Wolverine.

    What's everyone hoping for from XLoW/XDoW? Personally I want the Phalanx Wolverine to be a cosmic level threat. I know Logan already has been the Phoenix a few times but I just want more lol. What I really want is the Percy we've gotten on the solo Wolverine title and not the Percy we've gotten on X-Force. There is so much potential in X-Force it just hasn't been realized since the first few issues.

    I’m hoping to get out of XLoW/XDoW a Wolverine story that delivers on the hype. High stakes, awesome art, new threats… with some sort of lasting impact on Logan himself… mentally, emotionally or even physically. To me the best Wolverine stories always leave a mark, so to speak. Also interested to see how it impacts Krakoa and helps to usher in the Destiny of X era post Inferno.

    As for the Omega (Phalanx) Wolverine, yeah, I do hope he’s a major threat. Assuming he’s Logan in that suit, what caused him to turn? Assuming he’s a villain which seems obvious at this point. Was it the infection itself? Did it finally overwhelm his healing factor and take him over? Or did something else change his allegiance? Perhaps he also comes from this future where the mutants won (the same one Omega Sentinel revealed that she comes from in Inferno #3), but for some reason he is going against his own kind now? Not sure what would make him do that honestly, so I’m assuming he just got taken over by the transmode virus/Phalanx. But I suppose anything is possible, right?

    And, yes, I hope Ben Percy brings his A-game to both X-Force and Wolverine but especially the former. While Wolverine has been steady if not amazing, X-Force started so strong and then quickly went downhill not even a year into the title. It just meandered along and got really tedious. Which is a shame because I love the cast and the art. So I’m definitely rooting for him to get his mojo back in 2022.

    Finally, I’m hoping to see more of Logan in other media. I know the X-men ‘97 animated series revival and his video game aren’t out until ‘23, but some sneak peaks would be great. And my fingers and toes are crossed for Hugh Jackman to show up in the MCU as per these rumors to make a cameo in Doc Strange 2 as some multiversal variant (not the FOX version). Possibly showing up in Secret Wars too, if the latest rumors are to be believed, which makes me think he could be playing a more comic accurate version of Old Man Logan since he was a big factor in the 2015 Secret Wars event. That would be incredible IMO, and a nice treat while we wait for them to introduce mutants into the MCU proper and cast the new Wolverine.

    So those are my hopes for the character in 2022

    Honestly at this point I don't expect anything for them to pull off the quality from the main book storylines. I realized it has been like that for years since Rucka's run. After that it's either some thing different like Old Man Logan. Or it was some other mini or book like House of X, Death of Wolverine Or Manifest Destiny. Or it was Uncanny X-Force. I mostly blame Way and Aaron for doing retconning his past to be honest. Surprisingly Tieri's is still my this century's favorite Wolverine writer. He was the last writer who holded up pretty good with his Logan's voice I dont know if some of you understand this sentiment but it is what it is. I guess Percy is still better than whatever is happening over the last few years on his main book.

    I am pretty pumped up with Insomniac Wolverine. Hoping a trailer soon releases for the character.
