Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

We open better than last week’s issue of Weapons Lost with Daredevil because Taylor makes an effort to explain to the readers why this crew would hunt for Wolverine in the first place. It turns out a couple years ago, Wolverine saved NYC by being the one to hit the switch on a bomb since someone had to do it.... and his healing factor kinda helps too. He saved millions doing that and literally took one for the team, which at the time was Iron Man, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Spider-Man, and of course Wolverine. We don’t see what happened to him but it’s implied something important to everyone on the team..... other than being blown to pieces that are. 

We then jump to Tony Stark getting the old team back together to hunt for Wolverine. Intel takes them to a Black Market sale in which the bio makeup and genetic template of an unknown Super Hero are up for bidding. So, Tony’s team pretends to be buyers and goes to see which Super Heroes genetic template it is. They assume its Wolverines. Turns out; it’s Danielle Cage’s DNA and genetic template, which is Luke and Jessica’s daughter. Talk about a cliffhanger. 

This book had its cheesy moments where it was trying to be too funny. But it had its moments where it was genuinely funny. Taylor made it interesting and gave us a believable blueprint for this “Hunt”. I love Taylor’s take on Wolverine, as well as Spider-Man. Their interactions are great and I’m excited to see where this story will lead. I also love how we were given enough carrots to come back for more. Taylor told us enough to give us a pretty good start but left out enough nuggets to make us want to come back for the next issue. 

If you like what you heard, love talking all types of comics, and are interested in joining a comic chat group, hit me up at or @dispatchdcu on twitter. Catch you all later! Peace
