Old Man Logan – Days of Anger | Comics

In his own timeline, Old Man Logan had a pretty messed up life more than any of his other counterparts. He killed off all the X-Men at X-Mansion under the illusion created by Mysterio during the night of the super-villain uprising. Long after, he settled with a family of his own but the hillbilly Hulk Gang of an elderly Bruce Banner took that away from him too, causing him to unsheathe his claws once again against Pappy Banner and killing The Hulk for good (Wolverine – Old Man Logan). Then "Secret Wars" broke in and he ended up in the Wastelands of the Battleworld.

As Multiverse was restored, he found himself in a reality that isn't messed up like the one he knew yet. Here he found himself among his friends that aren't still butchered by his hands and got a new chance at life. Today, Logan goes to Fat Joe's Diner like he usually does once in a while to take a break from work. Sooner as he entered there, he smelled something fishy and realized soon that he has walked straight into a trap set by a few remaining members of former Hulk Gang of now-deceased Pappy Banner.

Although he clearly remembers sparing none other than Bruce Banner Jr. and Billy-Bob, apparently there are a couple more of them and they started to rain down on Logan without wasting a single moment. Back at this old routine, he mercilessly takes down all of them but Billy-Bob still got away to warn his folks. He landed on an abandoned Department H facility in Canada and reported back to their current leader, who turns out to be an elder Bruce Banner from a future alternate reality known as The Maestro (Future Imperfect).

To compromise the cover of their existence, Maestro berates and beats Billy-Bob before being stopped by Cambria. Maestro and the remaining Hulk Gang members rushed out of the place and took over another after killing all the occupant humans. Even though the facility was left clean, Logan traced it back and upon reaching there, he deduced that the Hulks are up to something that involves nuclear weaponries. So, he hit the road once again in search for them and called his old friend Puck of the Alpha Flight to look up.

Knowing how dangerous Logan really is, Maestro sends a few Hulks with Billy-Bob to find him and gun him down as soon as they do. They found him on his way on road and smoked him down with all they had. Logan discovers himself shackled with chains when he regained consciousness and got gunned down once again. Now, not only he has to survive the gun-toting Hulk Gang, he needs to find out their plans with those nuclear weapons and need someone to help; probably his former ally Hawkeye.

Old Man Logan – Days of Anger

Taking place on the second monthly ongoing series of Old Man Logan, "Days of Anger" is a six-part storyline that came out in 2017. It collects issues #25-30 from same series by Marvel Comics, who hired writer Ed Brisson (Secret Avengers, Secret Wars – Battleworld) for plotting out this entire arc along with fan-favorite artist Mike Deodato Jr. (Guardians of Knowhere, Original Sin), who also provided cover arts for all involving issues. Special guest appearance was made by Alpha Flight member Puck and long-time Avenger member Hawkeye to advance further with the plot.

Logan Vs. The Hulk Gang!

Brisson actually plays with classic idea of a "Hulk Vs. Wolverine" showdown here in "Days of Anger", which always wins an audience over. Only this time, both Hulk and Wolverine of Prime Marvel Universe is dead. So, he worked his plan out by picking two alternate versions of these popular characters from two different realities and bringing them on same place, at the same time but for different reasons to face each other. All of it played out really well and it really worked out pretty nicely. We eventually got an epic battle between the feral mutant and the green raging monster.
