Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This alternate version of the X-Men saga is primarily a showcase for the ever-popular Wolverine character. In the hands of writer Bendis (mistakenly credited as Mark Millar on the credit page), the story becomes a tour of New York City and its attendant superheroes. It opens with Wolverine on the run, hunted by a paramilitary group he doesn't recognize or understand, seeking help with Spider-Man in Queens and then Daredevil in Hell's Kitchen. When the X-Men are finally called in, they discover Wolverine is being hunted by the very group that helped create him, and another piece of his mysterious past is placed in the puzzle (although by book's end there are more questions than answers). Bendis is a pulpy, dialogue-driven writer. Each of his characters has a unique speaking voice, so he manages to deepen multiple characters even as he drives the suspenseful action forward. It's a good mix. Finch's artwork is well-rendered superhero material. Even busy scenes maintain their clarity, and his fight sequences are dynamic and clean. The storytelling is in keeping with the cinematic style of comics so popular right now, giving the exposition scenes a frantic tone and the fight scenes a sprawling, epic feel, as characters hover in midair or pose dramatically against the city skyline. Bendis and Finch have a crafted a fine superhero tale: swift and fun, though thoroughly bloody and deeply rooted in the Marvel universe. It's not for neophytes or those with a low threshold for violence.

Format: Paperback
Wow. There have been lots of changes in the Ultimate version of the Marvel Universe, but one constant has been the back story on Wolverine. He remains a mutant with extraordinary healing capabilities and claws popping out of his hands whose skeleton has been coated with the unbreakable metal adamantium by a covert military group called Weapon X. In the process of creating the ultimate living weapon they also wiped clean his memory. Once known as Logan he is now called Wolverine and has been trying to be a member of the X-Men.
But now two things have happened. First, Professor X has discovered a wedding ring that belonged to Wolverine in the government's Weapon X files. The ring bears the inscription: "To James, with all my love." This leads us to wonder if James is Wolverine's real name and who was he married to? Second, since his feelings for Jean Grey led him to leave Cyclops behind on a mission to die, he has left Charles Xavier's school. When "Ultimate X-Men Volume 7: Blockbuster" begins Wolverine is just trying to enjoy a cup of coffee and a sandwich. That is before a hail of automatic gunfire rips him to shreds.
"Blockbuster" collects together issues #34-39 of "Ultimate X-Men," written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by David Finch. The story arc follows the pursuit of Wolverine by a strange strike force armed with sophisticated military technology that includes a way of tracking Logan and adamantium bullets. Unwilling to ask the X-Men for help after the initial assault Logan ends up hiding out in the basement of none other than Peter Parker. When the battle moves to Hell's Kitchen that means not only Spider-Man but now Daredevil is also involved in Wolverine's problems.

Spiderman and Wolverine, these two characters are awesome together no matter what universe they are in. Be it 616 or the Ultimate universe, Wolvie and Spidey are always good together. Sprinkle a little bit of Daredevil into the mix and you've got comic book gold!

***SPOILERS***

Wolverine takes a MASSIVE beating from some Weapon X foot soldiers while he's in NYC and he escapes. He needs a place to crash and heal up so he calls on his buddy Peter Parker and uses his basement as a place to rest while his healing factor kicks in.

Later when Wolverine goes looking for who did this it turns out that they are a group of operatives being led by a hate filled woman who blames Logan for a something that happened to her in the past. While the fight goes on, our good buddy Daredevil stops in and helps out.

Later the X-Men are called in by Spiderman and they all converge on these foot soldiers and they take them out.

***END SPOILERS***

I picked this book up because it had Spiderman in it and it turns out that Spiderman was just the icing on the cake. I loved this story and the artwork was great too! If you love the X-Men, Spiderman or Daredevil, I'd advise you to pick this up!

this starts off a pretty great book and ends a great book. we first see spider-man in the first issue and he brings humor to the story, then we see daredevil who brings a real seriousness to the story while characterizing Wolverine at the same time. The last 3 issues are the best and when i see Jean's new character i immediately fall in love with her because she no longer looks ugly. As always the art from David Finch is amazing. To understand the ending of the book you HAVE to read the next volume New Mutants.

Without giving away too much, this volume is focused on Wolverine being tracked by Weapon X. Spider-Man is a major guest star with a minor apperance from Daredevil. The story isn't filled with many turns and is fairly predictable and leaves more questions than answers. This volume basically sets up for future storylines involving Wolverine.
