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.Read more ›
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.
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!
