When the Scarlet Witch reshaped the world handing it over to her father Magneto, this lead to the mutants taking over and humans reduced to being second class. In the process superheroes were effected in different ways with the Scarlet Witch giving those close to her their hearts desire. But is this the world they really wanted? -summary

Normally I love crossovers in big events because they usually expand on the main story and help them see their true potential. Events such as Secret Wars II and even The Infinity War pulled it off very well. The crossovers during those two mega events into multiple characters books pushed those storylines into the awesome category, and when I learned House of M received that same treatment, I was very interested in seeing how far Marvel would take this alternate world. Well, House of M: Wolverine, Iron Man, & Hulk doesn't seem to take it anywhere. It's bad enough these stories feel so bland on their own, but it feels like being mugged that they're billed as House of M crossovers when they feel completely unnecessary. I mean these star writers to me did almost nothing in taking advantage of quite possibly Marvel's greatest idea since Age of Apocalypse. This TPB collects Wolverine 33 - 35, Iron Man: House of M 1 - 3, Incredible Hulk 83 - 87, Captain America 10, The Pulse 10, Cable & Deadpool 17, and material from Hulk: Broken Worlds 1. These stories are written by various writers; Peter David, Daniel Way, Greg Pak, and others.

This book may be the biggest waste of time in the crossover. The story begins with Wolverine going A.W.O.L. from S.H.I.E.L.D. with his lover and partner Mystique being questioned by director Sebastian Shaw. It appears that Wolverine has a long standing grudge with Nick Fury and he left to go kill him.

The first House of M tie-in I read, "House of M: Spider-Man, Fantastic Four & X-Men" was very good with the glaring exception of the X-Men portion (which was a confusing mess). Wolverine, Iron Man and Hulk is a more balanced collection, with all three major stories being very strong.

In HoM, Wolverine is the catalyst for confronting Wanda & bringing back the true reality. This tie-in shows what his life was like in the HoM reality up to the point right before he learns the truth. With the mutant war over, Wolverine feels he has no purpose, until discovering Nick Fury is still alive and causing trouble. Wolverine sets off to hunt him down. This story was excellent, not only for setting up why Wolverine goes rogue and encounters Layla (who returns his memories of the true reality), but also for how the entire episode was set in motion. It's rare that a plot twist truly takes me by surprise, but this one did!

Few characters other than Magneto are actually better off in this alternate reality. Tony Stark, like Peter Parker, is anything but happy with his perfect life. He's a champion robotic gladiator in televised games while also running Stark Industries - the main defense contractor used to build the tech used to oppress humans. His father is still alive and casting a long shadow over Tony. When he seizes an opportunity to act as a hero for humanity, the consequences will shake this world. This story has a dark emotional undercurrent and is an intriguing way to spin the Iron Man origin.

Though missing from the title, the book also devotes a section to Captain America, still a war hero but who was never frozen. He lives to become an old man in the HoM reality (even becomes an astronaut!). However, he's a relic of a fading time when humans mattered.
