> Wolverine: Well, Loeb's arc is really, really taking its time to get moving, but it finally seems to be getting somewhere interesting. Seeing the Panther and Storm is very cool, and the interaction betwwen T'Challa and Logan. The ending gives us a nice surprise cast of guest-stars: Sasquatch, Feral, Thornn (these ladies need some revamped, non-late 80s/early 90s hairsyles!), Wolfsbane, and Wildchild show up, all of these characters, including Wolverine and Creed, apparently have sprung from a Lupine offshoot of the evolutionally process. A quest is on!
Not that I've been reading Loeb's arc, but if the Lupine backstory is true, doesn't that mean Loeb is borrowing story elements from Chuck Austen of all people? After all, Austen submitted the idea of " tribes " of mutant offshoots before Loeb....
...since the whole thrust of the Lupine element in the arc, as described by both T'Challa and Ororo, seems to be that many mutants descended from wolves rather than apes.
Then, at then end of the issue, we see Sasquatch, Feral, Thornn, and Wolfsbane, and their quest apparently is to find Wildchild, who has somehow been amped up; it's hinted that Weapon X is behind it.
This also explains the 'wolf people' 'memories/flashbacks' Wolverine keeps having. Sabertooth, of course, is also a Lupine; Wolverine says they have the same blood, but, at the same time, don't.
