THE SECRET HISTORY BEHIND THEIR ORIGINS REVEALED! In 1940, scientists attempted to make a man into the perfect weapon, a Super-Soldier. They failed and made him a legend instead. Before the turn of the century, they tried again for the tenth time. They failed, making a man into death incarnate. At long last, ETHAN SACKS (OLD MAN HAWKEYE, STAR WARS: GALAXY'S EDGE) and DIOGENES NEVES (GREEN ARROW, DEATHSTROKE) reveals the shadowy connections between Captain America, Wolverine and many more of the Marvel U's Super-Soldiers... including some surprises! The conspiracy begins here!

    Overall, the kick off to Wolverine & Captain America: Weapon Plus was a surprisingly exciting read, packed with enough action, intrigue, and story beats to satisfy a $4.99 price tag, not something all Marvel books at that price point always do. The art team does a great job of keeping the readers eyes glued to the page with some creative paneling layouts really making this something I was very pleasantly surprised by, even as a huge Wolverine fan. I'm very excited for more and that's really all you can ask for. Read Full Review

    Wolverine and the good ole Cap team up to smash on bad guys worthy of their time. The issue ends on a solid cliffhanger that will have you ready to scoop up #2, Sacks and Neves had a mission here and definitely achieved it. Read Full Review

    "Wolverine & Captain America: Weapon Plus" is worth a look for Marvel fans, but those with muted interest in the premise won't find much to win them over. Read Full Review

    I like the idea of this book but it doesn't quite sell me. The art is a tad inconsistent and the story just barely keeping its head above water. As a fight comic though it excels and it's a fast-paced joy ride. Read Full Review

    This series really seems to have a lot to say, and it's not getting anything lost in the shuffle. If not for the wonky, often misshapen character art, this would be another Weapon H success. Still, much better than anything you'd expect from a book called Weapon Plus. Read Full Review

    On some level, this issue feels a little bit like homework " nobody wants to do it, but you might as well get it out of the way. It'll be interesting to see how the Weapon Plus program narrative develops moving forward with the introduction of Sacks' new villain, but the idea of heaping even more retroactive continuity on top of retroactive continuity seems tedious at best. Remember how much cooler Wolverine was before we got Wolverine: Origin? There's something to be said for leaving some narrative stones unturned. This is a one-shot that your pull list probably won't miss. Read Full Review
