"ENEMY OF THE STATE" Conclusion!

Tough love takes on a whole new meaning when Wolverine, brainwashed and evil, comes home to the X-Mansion for his most damaging Hydra mission yet. Are the X-Men and Nick Fury ready for him? The blistering storyline speeds to a breakneck conclusion you have to see to believe!

    The Wolverines bloody tour of the Marvel Universe comes to an end with this issue. It was very entertaining and successful for readers; less so, I imagine, for those who actually lived through it. While the white heat of this saga couldnt likely sustain itself for more than one story, it was great fun for the duration. Read Full Review

    In carrying out a rather shamelessly exploitative assignment, Millar and Romita may have stumbled upon the ideal Wolverine comic: Beset by danger on all sides, devoid of any goal other than self-preservation, Logans claws, cunning, and will to survive combine in a whirlwind of amoral violence. And in the end, he emerges as neither hero nor villain, but rather, in the words of Nick Fury at this issues close, our little killing machine. Read Full Review

    As a big action finale, theres not much in the way of characterisation or depth going on, but its really not to be expected here. This is a story that exists only to have fun in the Marvel Universe, continuity, and occasionally logic, be damned. And on that level, its a great success. Simple fun comics that dont resort to depicting adult situations in an idiotic misunderstanding of what constitutes a mature story; whod have thought that would ever work nowadays? Read Full Review

    Wolverine under Mark Millar seems to be the Marvel equivalent of a run-of-the-mill action movie a lot of visual entertainment with some keen ideas and a couple of cool moments, but nothing beneath the surface to make it a real standout piece of work. Read Full Review
