The Fantastic Four is trapped in the Baxter Building with the world's deadliest weapon... Wolverine! Think this is as good as it gets for Wolverine? You tell us, folks - all we're thinking right now is that four against one isn't a fair fight... for the Four, that is!

    There are occasional flaws in the issue, with Wolverines various upgrades seemingly being written into the plot whenever their powers are demanded and the apparent reveal at the end of the issue meaning nothing to me (am I missing something?). However, the previously unsatisfactory elements of the book are improving, with Wolverines conflicting inner monologue sounding a lot more genuine this time around, providing a sense of Logans morality as appalled by his actions his own hand against his heart, as Shakespeare once put it which pulls the action elements up from mere eye-candy to significantly damaging events for Logans character. Theres definite potential in the arc yet, but how long Millar can keep the reader interested with such a hitherto thin plot remains to be seen. Read Full Review

    This remains a fast-moving and exciting story, which is a rarity at Marvel these days, but its going so fast that the wheels are coming off, and Millars too concerned with steering to pay attention to the fact that everythings coming apart. This is still more fun than a Wolverine comic has any right to be, but the cracks are starting to show. Read Full Review

    Another superstar creative team, another Everything and the kitchen sink storyline. Given the level of brutality in The Ultimates and Wolverines penchant for violence, this could have been classic. Instead, so far, its merely okay. Read Full Review
