Wolverine – Weapon X – Insane in the Brain | Comics

Locked within a padded cell of an asylum, Wolverine fails to recall how he ended up here and fell victim to Dr. Rottwell.

Earlier, Logan was busy fighting Strikeforce X, a group of super soldiers created by Roxxon Corporation from old Weapon X files. Lately, he couldn't even remember who he really was as he is seemingly stuck in an asylum like facility. As he struggles to get a grip on his memories, a voice on speaker asks him what he can recall about his childhood.

Wolverine talks about how he remembers living in a big fancy house and being sick all the time. He recollects killing his father and how he was raised by wolves, fighting in Spanish Civil War, being an honorable samurai in Japan, falling in love with Silver Fox, having mutant superhero friends among X-Men, going to moon and having a vision of future.

He is asked if any of what he just said made any sense and he admits that it sounds a bit crazy. He admits that something is most probably wrong with him but he also can't shake off these memories. Logan is then put to sleep as soon as he starts asking about an incident earlier that day, which was to write something on a wall with his own blood.

Marked as "Patient X", an orderly is seen to be washing what he wrote outside of his cell door earlier. After putting his straight jacket away, Logan is allowed to among fellow patients there and one of them asks him to join for an escape. Next day, he meets that same guy in hallway with a side of his head stitched and is left completely immobile.

That same week, a masquerade party is thrown off to celebrate a long-time patient being cured and Logan got to meet with Doctor Rot, who promises to cure him. Knowing about Wolverine's true origins, Rot tries to unleash his violent side by pitting him against his guards but he refuses to fight back and continue to have nightmares from Weapon X days.

Earlier, Rottwell and his men took Charlie Chainsaws to incurable ward to replace his hands with chainsaws. Later that day, two mobsters came at his doorsteps to hire a hitman without knowing that previous owner of this facility has died. One of them ended up being sawed down at Charlie's hands and another being experimented on by Doctor Rot.

He sees other patients being tortured in front of him and minds his own business anyway until a day when he finally lets his inner beast out by unsheathing his adamantium claws and gutted down his tormentors for good. It turns out that he was simply under influence of a simulation program run on him by Dr. Rottwell and is put to sleep once again.

At one point, he starts wondering if this has been his life all along and then he briefly recalls his past as an X-Man. It all started a week ago when Wolverine was investigating a case along with reporter Melita Garner where three serial killers gone missing in a year from a homeless shelter in San Francisco and he decides to check this oddity out for himself.

However, before he could even get the drop on them, Logan is under a psychic attack and gets captured by Rottwell's crew. When he came to his senses, he keeps telling himself that he is not insane and gets to know more about this facility from an inmate. Dr. Rottwell repeatedly tries to hack into his brain and eventually learns about all of his dark secrets.

Logan managed to send a distress psychic call to Melita Garner and tell her where he currently is, "Dunwich Sanatorium". Next thing she knows, Nightcrawler and Psylocke shows up at her doorstep when she called a number that he gave her. These two berak into Dunwich to discover what Dr. Algernon Rottwell was working on, a God Brain Machine.

Superman – Last Son of Krypton | Comics

Superman finds a child within a rocket that landed on Metropolis, whom he thinks is a Kryptonian and wants to protect from Lex Luthor.

In Fortress of Solitude, Superman confronts the A.I. likeness of his late father Jor-El after some time and he asks him if he enjoys living among humans while reminding that he is not one of them though. Later at Daily Planet, he sees Perry White giving photographer Jimmy Olsen for missing out a shot from a recent rampage of Gorilla Grodd.

Clark steps in to defend his buddy getting roasted for losing a shot to their rival paper Daily Star and Perry then sends the boy to get him some coffee. As he was lecturing Kent about how things were back in the days, Clark sees a strange meteor heading towards Metropolis in distant and immediately changes into Superman to stop that.

He rushed at it, as fast as he could, then caught it in midair and eventually stopped it from causing widespread damage. Turns out, it was actually a space vessel carrying a young boy who is taken to Metropolis lab by Department of Metahuman Affairs.

Big Blue talks to director Sarge Steel about where the boy might be from but then he starts speaking Kryptonian language and displaying impressive physical feat. Taking an interest on the child, he goes to Lois Lane to talk about it and even hinted at his willingness of adopting the kid out of responsibility he feels for a descendant of his home planet.

Next morning, they moved the boy to another location and a pissed off Superman shows up at Washington, D.C., demanding to know his whereabouts to Sarge Steel who clearly ignored to inform him. So, he breaks the kid out from transfer route and showed up to his parents' doorsteps at Smallville asking how they adopted him back then.

Kal-El unsuccessfully tries to figure out who this boy is at Fortress of Solitude but it was suggested that some records may not have survived. Lois is still uneasy about adoption as she wonders whether or not they would be a suitable parent to a Kryptonian child. A press conference is called to publicly leave the child in the care of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.

Lex Luthor has been keeping tabs on the whole development, sends out Bizarro to fetch him this "Super-Boy" and his backward brute starts rampaging through Metropolis. Their clash threw a school bus on top of the boy and though shaken if fear, he remains unscratched. Lois decides to give him a proper Earth name and chooses Christopher.

Meanwhile, Kryptonian super criminals General Zod, Ursa and Non comes out of Phantom Zone prison in three meteor pods at Fortress of Solitude, looking for the boy. Zod activates a holographic image of Jor-El via Sunstone crystal to learn his own legacy on Krypton only to react in anger knowing that they are considered as criminals.

Lois and Clark bring Chris Kent to workplace to introduce him to their coworkers but then Daily Planet is attacked. As he was about to change into Man of Steel, Non tackles him out of window and Zod joining shortly to beat him up some more. Ursa goes after Lois to get the child from her, who turns out to be her own son named Lor-Zod.

Soon, dozens of space pods starts raining down from sky with exiled Kryptonians of Phantom Zone and a scientist among them, Jax-Ur sends Superman into the Zone. Within that inter-dimensional realm, he is greeted by a wandering Mon-El, who then helped Big Blue fight his way out of ultimate purgatory to leave for Earth.

Upon returning, he discovers Metropolis is in ruins by Zod and his Kryptonian followers with many of his allies being taken captive. So, Kal-El approaches his greatest enemy Lex Luthor and his newly reformed Superman Revenge Squad consisting Bizarro, Metallo and Parasite to fight back these Kryptonian outlaws who has taken over the world.
