Welcome back to our new series in which we review the comics that we read every week. This week Seppin is going to be reviewing Hunt for Wolverine – Mystery in Madripoor #4 by Jim Zub and art by Thony Silas.
Finally, the end of Hunt for Wolverine. This series has been nothing but let downs and uninteresting reveals. However, Mystery in Madripoor has probably been the best out of the four books. This is mostly because we actually have X-men… X-Women? That are using their powers and doing proper investigations to find Logan.
Sadly, if you were expecting something to actually happen, your out of luck. This Logan is practically just the figment of Psylocke’s imagination and leads to nothing. Which isn’t surprising at this point. I’m just going to wait until the real Logan shows up to expect anything actually cool appear at Marvel. The characters are all pretty awesome in their own way. I was glad to see Jubilee actually pop up in the spotlight again. Magneto is used enough to make him an interesting character before he gets his own solo title.
This series’ big reveal was alright. In fact, it may lead to some actually eventful stories. I’m not trying to spoil anything, but this book doesn’t really have anything to it other than all of Logan’s love interests working together. Quick spoiler warning! Psylocke gains her original body back. That’s right, Betty Braddock is back in the flesh. This is really cool because she hasn’t been herself in forever. This is great for Psylocke fans. However, I am not one of them, so this book was still very disappointing to me.
Overall, it is the best Hunt for Wolverine story, but it’s still irrelevant.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
Total: 10/ 20
