Wolverine Weapon X #15 Review by (January 18, 2022)

Review: And it all wraps up in a complicated but satisfying denouement that is heartbreaking in its intensity, even though we could have guessed the General’s identity several issues earlier but not have explained it yet. And for once there’s an alternate future history that I would really like to see more of. If you can imagine that. The most offbeat point is that Wolverine, whose comic this is, has almost no bearing on the bigger events; the Avengers do even less, just mopping up the bad guys whose presence would become inconvenient, to say the least. Very, very nice.

Comments: Deathlok Prime goes on to UNCANNY X-FORCE #5 and continues from there. The alternate future where Roxxon rules is Earth-10511. Matt Milla collaborated on the colors.
