Y'know what?? NO COMPLAINTS!

All-New Wolverine 030

Enjoy this thrilling conclusion! It's ALL GOOD! Even Jonathan wearing a business suit works on that perfect last page, imo. The best part: LAURA SHINED for 20 pages straight! Literally on page 10! It was very satisfying to see her own the spotlight in her own book. The art was GORGEOUS. Great twist for the fate of OoX. Daken makes an incredible and surprising respectful gesture to arrange the funeral. Honey Badger brought plenty of fun. And there was some of the best snikting scenes ever. Can't recommend it all enough.

What will become of all the Murumasa metal? What will become of Sutter? Will this new hunt for Weaopon X financiers be a sideline of the X-men: Red? When will Laura don her mystic armor again? All perfectly fine danglers to keep interest in ANWolverine's book until RealWolverine returns -any day now- which, ironically, cut out all the good will Laura has worked hard for to own the classic codename. Okay, that kind of sounded like a complaint, sorry, let's turn that around and offer suggestions for her new codename since X-23 would be a step back and the thought of sharing the name "Wolverine" is extremely discouraging. How 'bout "Orphan-X"? Granted the Orphans are like a new familly for her and, of course, the fact her father Logan would be back with Marvel Legacy. Hmm... any other suggestions?

[p.s. Of course, the subject line was a joke - but it might have to be seriously used again for next review considering the upcoming Despicable guest star. ;\) ]

Some other random thoughts:

Creed seemed willing to follow Laura's leadership. That may be partly because they fought during the Weapon H story line and he got pretty badly cut up, she did too, and she didn't flinch from continuing. One of those things where the bully's victim fights back hard enough that the bully reconsiders and the two become, if not friends, at least allies. But also Laura is just awesome and Creed may sense it. Certainly her no-kill rule will always irritate him. I don't see him following her long term. But for this one issue he did it and it interested me.

GABBY: "Oh man. You Captain America'd."

(Which was very close to the words that were running though my own head.)

Like everyone else, I'm wondering what will become of the Murumasa armor. I'm thinking it's probably too precious/dangerous to constantly just wear. Knock Laura unconscious and now you've got the armor. That's probably not OK. So Laura will likely either hide the armor somewhere or give it back to Murumasa for safekeeping.

In one of the greatest displays of Squirrel Girlian unbeatableness ever displayed, Laura removes the armor and just talks to the bad guys.

LARUA: I am an Orphan of X.

That is the kind of charismatic one-liner a presidential candidate (or Steve Rogers) might utter.

Yes, I see the day when Laura will run for president. She's that awesome. On the first day of her campaign she'll release a dossier of all the terrible things she did when she was under the influence of the Weapon X program. And then every superhero on the planet will endorse her. Because she's that awesome.
