Wolverine #2

By: Ben Percy, Adam Kubert
Released: Mar 25, 2020

THE WORST IS BACK!
Wolverine has never been one to back down from a fight - not even a combined assault from Lady Deathstrike, Sabretooth and Doctor Cornelius - but the Flower Cartel might have enlisted his worst and greatest foe: Logan himself.

This book has a few problems in aspects that are quintessential for it to work as an X-Men book. "X-Men" is traditionally known for its round, well developed characters. They may change exponentially, but that change will usually happen in ways that feels inherent to the story being told, throughout many issues. That continuity of motivations and characterization have been Claremont's greatest leg more

I don't see anyone in this issue trying to be funny. Emma and Pyro have humorous personality traits, but that's consistent. Everyone else is pretty much dead serious.
