He’s the best there is at what he does and what he does is show up in more monthly titles that should be mutantly possible. I think it’s his secret secondary mutation. Yes, we are getting not one, but two Wolverine monthly books from Marvel NOW! with “Captain Britain” writer Paul Cornell and artist Alan Davis taking the reigns of the relaunched “Wolverine” title.
This title will mark Cornell’s return to Marvel after a stint at DC with “Demon Knights” and by the sounds of it, he’s going to be hitting the ground running. In an interview with iFanboy, he explained how his first arc is going to shape up.
James is caught up in a hostage situation, which involves a threat to innocents from a very disciplined, ruthless new character, the nature of which we’re only gradually going to reveal. That turns into an action movie chase, where James is highly motivated to stop having to repeat something not very nice he had to do in front of one of said innocents. James is at his best when he’s protecting others. I’ve been a father for four weeks, and I asked myself, which super hero would I hand my baby to? And the answer is James Logan, because he will die before he see that child hurt, and anyone who wants to do so has to get through the Wolverine. This title is about that balance between protector and berserker, between long-lived oddity and regular guy.
So let the battle between fans of “Wolverine” and “Savage Wolverine” commence! “Wolverine” #1 launches in March and for the full interview with Cornell, check out iFanboy
