I love everything Marvel. The storylines are incredible! They have everything you could want: action, adventure, comedy, romance, political intrigue, allegories, metaphors, etc. Some stories drag, some end too soon. ( )

This collects the first few issues of Weapon X and introduces us to a revamped Weapon X programme (the programme that 'created' Wolverine). Throughout the issues collected in this volume, none of the team members manage to acquire much depth or enough personality to stand out as interesting characters except perhaps the anonymous Agent Zero and Wild Child. The series becomes interesting when the plot becomes a contest of wills between the mysterious Director (sort of an anti-Prof X) of the programme and Sabretooth - a former member of the programme who has gone rogue. Unfortunately in the final issue this plotline is abandoned for one in which mutants are rounded up and put into concentration camps by the Director for the umpteenth time in the Marvel continuity. Really one would think that by now these numerous attempts to ethnically cleanse mutants from the United States would either have succeeded or would have become so unpopular as to be blocked by whatever concerned government authorities are involved. Or maybe this plot device actually suceeds in shocking a new generation of Marvel comic readers?

Be that as it may, this is an interesting enough start to the series - one I wouldn't mind continuing to follow as it now stands, particularly with the attraction of having another round between the Director and Sabretooth. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0785111484, Paperback)

Of all the members of the X-Men, none has been more popular than Wolverine -- yet the origins of this mutant hero had always been tightly shrouded in mystery. Aside from a few hazy tidbits, Wolverine's past has always been little more than a blank slate. In WEAPON X, acclaimed writer/illustrator Barry Windsor-Smith peels back this veil of secrecy to reveal how Wolverine's skeleton became laced with an indestructible adamantium metal. Kidnapped and drugged, Wolverine is subjected to a series of sadistic medical experiments designed to create the perfect soldier. As he battles back against this tortuous experience, Wolverine proves himself to be a true hero long before his days as an X-Man.
