A key theme throughout the comic is that of humanity and what defining qualities make someone human. Throughout the opening pages Wolverine is depicted as a very human character who articulates his feelings through speech and thought. After he is captured however he is depicted as a very beast-like figure, a "man with his subconscious stripped bare" as the Professor perfectly puts it. Caption boxes and speech bubbles are no longer populated by his thoughts and words, but instead that of the supporting characters, making the scientists appear more human than him. Now the only method Wolverine can articulate his feelings with is violence, his main feelings being that of intense rage and pain. Whether this form of expression makes Wolverine less of a human being than those subjecting him to tests is a key strength of this comic and forces you to consider when violence towards others can be justified, if at all.
The theme of fate being foretold as part of a prophecy is also conveyed within the artwork of the opening pages. Before Wolverine is captured and becomes a test subject he experiences nightmares of the Weapon X experiments which manifest themselves as images which gradually appear within the panels, slowly engulfing more of the page symbolising that his fate is getting closer. Similarly the repetition of the phrase; "storm's comin'" signify the coming of an intense torrent of pain to be inflicted on Wolverine, or perhaps his victims.Read more ›
