Wolverine Weapon X #13 Review by (January 4, 2022)

Review: More heroes join the story in this chapter, with a bigger battle scene. And we also get the first of the “change the future” tropes as killing the cyborg creator leads to the Deathloks becoming more powerful. Them’s the breaks when you play at time travel. Anyway, the plot heads toward more madness while Spider-Man talks too much. I will admit, however, that Spidey’s annoying Thing by swiping his catch phrases is hilarious.

Comments: The alternate future where Roxxon rules is Earth-10511.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Wolverine Weapon X #13 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Future: As Roxxon tightens its grip over society, the Deathloks move to crush a street protest. To stop them, resistance leader Peter Parker opens fire with a web gun on the killer cyborgs. But a Deathlok team materializes behind him and, after various attempts to dodge his pursuers, Parker is killed….

Present: Spider-Man sees panicked citizens fleeing the subway and he investigates. Meeting a Deathlok, Spidey tries to talk to him and is swatted away as irrelevant to the cyborg’s mission. In the station, Wolverine and Captain America (Bucky Barnes) are battling the Deathlok army. To save Miranda Bayer, Logan takes on Deathlok Prime, whose damaged brain now has his murderous human personality fighting his AI, shoving its head into an oncoming train and knocking the head clean off. Steve Rogers arrives on the scene with some Avengers allies: Thing, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Spider-Woman. With Spider-Man, they outnumber the Deathloks, who teleport away to regroup. Miranda takes the boy Wakowski with them, suggesting the visit the man who is going to invent the Deathloks….

Logan and Bucky Cap, debating whether they can trust Miranda’s warnings, arrive at the office of Dr. David Heimerdinger, working for Norman Osborn’s HAMMER. They show him Deathlok’s head and body and he is amazed as he has only been able to create rudimentary cyborgs for Osborn. They failed and he was exiled to this office. Bucky and Logan want to kill him to prevent the future Deathloks but Miranda talks them out of it as futile. But he’s killed anyway by the headless cyborg body, which escapes with its head while they are occupied with the dying doctor. Wondering how his death changed the timeline, they try to contact Steve Rogers who, along with Luke Cage and Spidey, has been defeated by the enemy. Logan, Bucky Cap, Miranda, and Wakowski head into he street where they face a repaired Deathlok Prime who now has repulsor rays, web capabilities, and laser claws….
