Death of Wolverine #1

Let's be honest here. If Wolverine actually dies in Death of Wolverine, it's not going to stick. This is comics, of course, and the X-Men are nothing if not good at finding ways to return their deceased members to the land of the living. As silly as they are though, I have to admit to being a bit of a sucker for these "your favorite character is totes gonna die" events and Death of Wolverine kicks off well enough that I can't help but love it already. For those not in the know, Wolverine has lost his healing powers and, in turn, his recent adventures have seen him having to deal with the fact that he's now mortal and a lot more killable. This comes to a head in Death of Wolverine when Reed Richards instructs him to lay low while he devises a way to restore his powers, only to have his vacation away from action invaded by a slew of assassin's and villains out to claim a bounty on his now vulnerable head. What this amounts to is a fun read where Wolverine's a bad ass. What more do you need from a comic book?

Favorite Moment: "Come on then you cowards."
