To investigate a kidnapping case of a close friend's son, Wolverine went to Japan when all authorities failed. During the ransom exchange, Logan was ambushed in a graveyard by a horde of undead ninjas from The Hand. While he was slicing and dicing all those rotten corpses, The Gorgon secretly observes his moves and waiting for him to tire out.
After trashing them all into pieces and shreds, he finally gets his hands on the kidnapper but before they could react, his mysterious enemy murders him by surprise attacking him with his sword. X-Men member Shadowcat visits the boy's family after they learn Logan has gone disappeared but they already has given up on finding him and their boy.
Director of S.H.I.L.E.D., Nick Fury has recruited the master assassin Elektra to locate Wolverine and bring him back. He told her about a smoked out plan to take down major super powered people by Hand and Hydra is found and Logan was on top of their choice from the list. A badly-burned up Wolvie is later found in one of S.H.E.I.L.D.'s aircraft carrier.
He regains consciousness to discover an unknown voice in his head that tells him that he is on a mission from Hydra and must oblige. A brainwashed Wolverine then goes total berserk and after killing the nurse on duty, he unleashes a mindless killing spree on board.
When power goes down all of a sudden, Elektra warns her fellow agents about his presence on board and told them not to open fire. As those men were getting butchered by him, Natchios patiently waits for her chance to get him. She attacked Wolvie on the right moment and successfully incapacitating him into submission using her twin Sai.

She then tries to reason with him while Hydra helps him to break free, causing a brief and intense fight between these two. After locking her up to drown her, Logan managed to escape the drowned ship. Later, he unwillingly starts working for the alliance of The Hand, Hydra and The Dawn of the White Light, assembled together by Baron von Strucker.
Their plan is to kill major known superheroes and turn them into their weapon by brainwashing into fighting for their own sinister cause. The entire super-human community is put under Red Alert by Nick Fury. The Fantastic Four and X-Men appear to be the primary targets of Hydra as well as Captain America, Charlie Xavier, Iron Man and Reed Richards.
Emma Frost, Kitty Pryde and Storm brief their terrified young students at X-Mansion about what's at stake and what to do in a state of emergency. Baxter Building also evacuates of all non-super-powered individuals for safety before generating a force field over. However, Wolverine was already inside by then and was waiting to prey on them.
Picking up his presence, Mister Fantastic orders Human Torch and The Thing to bring him down using maximum force but the former Weapon X operative doesn't go down. Invisible Woman got a hold on him before he escaped stealing Reed's latest invention. Next up, he leads an assault against the Stark International with an army of Hydra agents.
Upon encounter, Logan brutally gutted down Spider-Man, injuring him pretty badly while killing off a lesser-known hero named Hornet of The Slingers. Then he sneaked up on Daredevil in his home with dozens of Hand ninjas. As Matt was fighting against Logan, Elektra was being ambushed by The Gorgon on a nearby roof at the same time.
After killing off all those agents who came with her, Gorgon took her out in combat before knocking her down and kidnapped her to recruit within their ranks. Afterwards, Hydra sends Wolverine to kill the president but instead Washington, he showed up at X-Mansion to force Rachel Grey AKA Marvel Girl to do the deed by threatening innocents.
What comes after is that, she cleverly folds his plan and Logan ended up being chased by Beast, Cyclops, Colossus, Emma Frost, Gambit, Havok, Iceman, Northstar, Shadowcat and Storm into a confrontation where he kills one of his former teammate but eventually got taken down by his old pal, Steve Rogers and taken into S.H.I.L.E.D. custody.
