Everything You Need To Know Going Into Logan

first_imgStay on target Anti-Black Panther Group Shut Down, Stan Lee is OK & More MCU NewsThe Future of Marvel’s Stars, Possible New Arrivals & More MCU News Logan is a very, very, very good movie. You can check out MovieBob’s review of it for Geek.com if you need further convincing. However, as great as it may be, it has a very weird relationship with the comic books. Most of the previous X-Men movies, up until Deadpool, took the team and stories from the comics and somehow managed to suck all of the fun and heart out of the series. Deadpool found its footing by taking everything that makes the comic book version interesting, injecting a little more substance, and fully embracing its source material. Logan, however, seems to have the comic books at arm’s length, a fact that the movie is very much aware of.via Marvel ComicsWhile many people have associated the new Logan movie with the Old Man Logan series from 2008-2009 by writer Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, the movie doesn’t share many qualities with the story beyond the fact that Logan is, well, old. Instead, Logan focuses on older versions of Wolverine of Professor X, forced on a road trip in a seek of a better future. The movie feels as if it owes much more to the Lone Wolf and Cub manga or Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns comic book than it does anything even remotely related to the X-Men comic books. A beat down, aging version of a popular superhero reluctantly takes a young girl under their wing in a future that hasn’t been kind to their respective franchise.The Wolverine of the movies up until now has shared a lot with his comic book counterpart, even if the Logan movie doesn’t deal much with it. First appearing in The Incredible Hulk #181 in 1974, the character has a very long and complicated history. Born to a wealthy Canadian family in the 1800’s, James Howlett tragically discovers that he is a mutant with retractable bone claws after his family is murdered. Roaming the wilderness for many years, he becomes a drifter, serving in almost every major war of the past century, even fighting alongside Captain America. Sometime in the 60’s or 70’s, he is captured by the Weapon X program and the metal Adamantium is bonded to his skeleton, to brainwash him and turn him into a killing machine. Eventually escaping, he continues to travel the world, briefly joining the Canadian superhero team Alpha Flight, while also spending time in Japan and learning their culture. Making his way onto the X-Men, he becomes a staple member of the team for many years and has been ever since.via Marvel ComicsLogan‘s version of both Wolverine and X-23 are so far removed from the comic books that it almost comes down to them just sharing a name and powerset with their source material, especially for the young Laura aka X-23. Created for the X-Men: Evolution cartoon in early 2003, X-23 made her first comic book appearance a year later in NYX #3. A child created in a lab, to clone Wolverine, she is raised to be an assassin. She eventually escapes and makes her way out into the world, by this time already being well into her late teens. Eventually, she meets the superhero Wolverine that she shares DNA with, and he helps her get accepted to the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning as a way to keep an eye on her. Acting as an X-Men for a few years, she is eventually drafted alongside Wolverine into the new X-Force, a lethal black-ops team created by Cyclops. Currently, she acts as the Wolverine of the Marvel Universe, ever since the “death” of Logan in 2014.via Marvel ComicsCoincidentally, around the same time that the comic book version of Logan “died,” and Laura started acting as Wolverine, another version of Logan appeared in the Marvel Comics Universe. The Old Man Logan iteration of the character was displaced from his timeline/alternate Earth and has been running around the main Marvel Universe. The gnarled version of the character has found himself as a man with a second chance, able to prevent the tragedies that caused his timeline to fall apart. However, just like Logan will eventually be rebooted or recast, the proper comic book version of the character will eventually return to life.Marvel’s Old Man Logan series is currently on sale at Comixology.last_img read more
