    Default Wolverine #304 (2012) - Return of an Alpha Flight member

    SPOILERS













    As some guessed Wild Child didn't die from his encounter with Omega Red and appeared in this issue (no speaking lines and appeared in just two panels). No explanation, how he survived but he and a bunch of villians all go to a party for Sabretooth (He recently returned from the dead) and ALL get beaten by Wolverine fairly easy. It's pretty ridic he beat them all that way. Villians include (Lady and Lord Deathstrike, Sauron, Tigershark, Mad Cap, Silver Samurai II, Wild Child, Sabretooth, Mystique, Daken, Bloodscream, Jade Claw, new White Queen, Soulstriker, Dr.Rot (at the door) and many others)

    Also mentioned Wild Child would be the only one that used to show up during Sabretooth's older parties


    END SPOILER

    Thanks for the awesome find! So glad to know he's back. I wonder how it happened. How did Sabretooth return from the dead?

    Love,

    They havent revealed that yet, I assume most likely the Hand had a part in it as they brought back Mystique too.

    Spoilers?....












    I knew he wasn't dead...I think I posted about it when the Wolverine in Hell story was going on (it was my theory for Wild Child for not appearing in Hell).

    AWESOME! Next questions; (1) did WC still look all tricked out with the piercings and whatnot? If not, what version of Kyle did we get back? (b) Is this the evil Wild Child, or the sad and sometimes-heroic loner (see my avatar for example)?

    ps - Just added this issue to my "wants" list.

    Looking around online, i see that Sabretooth and Mystique are now a couple, as well? That should be a formidable pairing.

    Be warned, this is a pretty awful book. Other then the brief Wild Child apperance I would not reccomend getting it.

    Did Sabes throw the party himself? It's just, this is the first 'back from the dead' party I've ever heard of.
    Which, come to think of it, should be a regular thing in the Marvel Universe.

    Yeah he threw it, but the party was to celebrate the fact Sabretooth became the "secret assassin lord of the entire eastern hemisphere" and that's why all the villians showed up.

    Sabretooth: "look at them. Any one of them would kill me at the drop of a hat. That's the only reason they're here. To size me up, looking for an opening"
    Mystique: "Welcome to the top, my dear. Best get used to everyone you meet wanting to kill you."

    KM, I see online that some people hate the comic, some love it. It's the writer's style (as shown monthly in Wolverine and the X-Men) to be tongue-in-cheek humorous; some people don't like that. Personally, i don't mind it.

    That being said, I'll be getting it only for the Wild Child appearance.

    Aaron's previous work on Wolverine has been great, even his Wolverine and the X-Men series is a really fun read. HOWEVER, this issue definetly was a depature (it was also his last issue writing Wolverine too) for me. Also having 4 different artists felt disjointed (some of the art was great, but Dillion I felt was the worst and was most of the issue). I also felt the dialogue was subpar and scenes such as Daken and Silver Samurai II, as well as Lady Deathstrike and Soulstriker seemed very forced and just wasn't funny.

    Generally the people that really loved it are the Wolverine fanboys that are excited he easily beat all those villians with ease. It's sort of a fanboy wet-dream and completly destroys the credibility of them as a threat.

    I understand the frustration of Wolverine wading into a pile of enemies and easily defeating them. Sounds more like something you'd see in an all-ages comic.

    However, this WAS Aaron's last issue. I'd have to beleive that he worked hard with the oncoming writer in developing this story, so it seems that the blame cannot be laid solely at his feet. I think there are some major plot holes in just suddenly bringing back a whole bunch of dead characters, it makes it almost like the last several years never happened. Obviously, future writers wanted to use the characters, but it makes it sound more like waking up from a bad dream where everybody has died to find they are still alive. Seems fitting, however, that if Wolverine cannot stay dead, neither can his enemies.

    I really enjoyed #'s 1-8 but since then I've disliked the title more and more with each issue, and was about to drop it when Bunn was announced as new writer.
    He's got 6 issues to save the title, else it's gone for me.

    Also; I think I'm the only person who doesn't like Wolverine & The X-Men. I can see why a lot of people would, but for me it's just too goofy and disjointed. Like Aaron's trying to hard to recapture as many elements of past writers and fit his own voice in. But what do I know...

    I've just realised from the title of this thread that they've reset the numbering, too. For whatever that's worth.

    I haven't been reading Wolverine and The X-Men, but goofy sounds good to me... disjointed, not so much.

    That's the thing... I'm all for fun and quirky, I just feel it's trying too hard to be fun & quirky, almost like AF Vol.3 was.
