Previous Post

Aside from the still awful premise of these Generations issues, this was a really well done story.

Sabes has kidnapped Akiko (remember her? Or maybe you remember "Amiko," what her name was changed to by mistake-- props to Taylor for remembering). Laura finds herself dropped right in the middle of Logan's hunt for her. Most of the story is a fairly straight-foward rescue. It's after the rescue that special part of the story takes place.

Once back safely at home, Logan sends Akiko to bed and prepares to abandon her yet again. But Laura stops him, telling him he's wrong for not being around. She scolds him for liking snikting Hand more than spending time with his daughter. This proved that Akiko's life is going to be threatened whether he's around or not. So, he should be around as much as possible. As Laura fades away, back to her own time, Logan returns inside to read Akiko a bedtime story and stay a while.

Of course, we really know this ain't gonna change nothing. Right?

No tears though.

There are no clues as to when this takes place.

My one complaint: Sabes and Mariko are both written kinda flavourlessly. Mariko gets zero dialogue at all. She's just there for a lap for Akiko to fall asleep on at the end. Sabes may as well have been a random crimelord. He's just a familiar face to spout cliched taunts before he's kicked in the throat (literally).

But this is a very sweet Laura-Logan story.

As for that quote, it loses a lot without the context: "I can try to be better at [being a dad]."

I kind of like that Sabes and Mariko is cliched, if only because it is a cliched Wolverine story without Laura. We all know how it would've gone down without Laura. Without Laura, it would be a Claremont pastiche. With Laura, it becomes a father-daughter story.

And I gave the quote without context, because that part kind of ruins the surprise.
