Old Man Logan

Article by Gregg Katzman

Back in 2008, writer Mark Millar and artist Steve McNiven presented a whole new take on James Howlett, a.k.a. Wolverine, in the story arc Old Man Logan. It’s a bleak future where the villains have finally won. The heroes have fallen and the foes have each claimed different territories across the United States. Thanks to his accelerated healing factor and slowed aging, Wolverine still lives, but he’s stopped popping his claws and slashing bad guys. Instead, he attempts to live a peaceful and simple life with his new family, and it’s all because something in his past traumatized him and made him give up being a hero. Seeing as some of you out there still haven’t read Millar and McNiven’s Old Man Logan, I won’t be the one to spoil the twist for you; go read it before someone else does ruin the surprise!

Last year, writer Brian Michael Bendis, artist Andrea Sorrentino, and colorist Marcelo Maiolo were able to bring Old Man Logan back because Secret Wars created a new Marvel Earth, and a chunk of Old Man Logan’s dark reality happens to be a section of it. Now that this future version of Wolverine exists in the new Marvel Universe, a brand new volume is going to focus purely on the adamantium-clawed anti-hero. I’m very excited for this new volume, and you know what? I think you should be, too!
